Product Description & Reviews
Mary Gauthier (pronounced 'Go-shay' ya'll) releases Mercy Now, her fourth full-length album & Lost Highway debut. Mercy Now features 10 songs overflowing with beauty, darkness, raw emotion & unflinching honesty, from a truly compelling artist. Gauthier's life has taken her on a path through devastation & despair. Her songwriting is a direct reflection of personal life experience. Mary Gauthier has beaten back demons, learned from the streets, hit rock bottom & risen from the ashes - all before writing her first song at the age of 35. A spark of redemption illuminates even the darker songs on Mercy Now, the fourth album by Mary Gauthier (pronounced "go-shay"). The influence of her native Louisiana pervades her Southern Gothic songcraft, which first won an audience in the folk clubs of Boston. After a series of releases on independent labels, her Lost Highway debut seems destined to expand that audience significantly. Within her mature, weather-beaten artistry, Dylanesque metaphysics go to Mardi Gras on "Wheel Inside the Wheel"; the naked emotion and eye for detail of "Your Sister Cried" and "Empty Spaces" conjure comparisons with Lucinda Williams; and the plainspoken "I Drink" and "Drop in a Bucket" have the bittersweet bite of the best of John Prine. The spare arrangements of producer/guitarist Gurf Morlix, punctuated by cello, organ, and harmonica, give the material plenty of room to breathe. Gauthier's vocals are half-spoken, half-sung, and all soul. --Don McLeese
