Painfully personal songs that are a joy to listen to
Mary Gauthier was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, to a mother she never knew... adopted at age one, by 15, she had run away from home. She spent the next several years in drug rehabilitation, halfway houses, and living with friends; she spent her 18th birthday in a jail cell.

These experiences provided fodder for her songwriting later on. Spurred on by friends, she enrolled at Louisiana State University as a philosophy major, dropping out during her senior year. After attending the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, she opened a Cajun restaurant in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood, Dixie Kitchen (also the title of her first album).

Mary ran, and cooked at, the restaurant for eleven years and didn't write her first song until she was 35.

"...Louisiana-raised Mary Gauthier has become one of Americana music's most admired artists-across the U.S. and in her regular tours around the world." - Wall Street Journal
