CD reviews for Mary Gauthier

Rifles and Rosary Beads CD review - Rifles and Rosary Beads
Mary Gauthier has built her career on honest, sometimes brutally and achingly self-confessional songs. This is the first time that she has focused on experiences other than her own, and it could become not only the strongest album of her career but, in its own way, a landmark album. "Rifles and Rosary Beads" was co-written over the period of a few years with U.S. veterans and their families, revealing untold and powerful stories that veterans faced abroad, returning home and that their »»»
Trouble & Love CD review - Trouble & Love
Mary Gauthier is an artist who will never be accused of not telling the truth and the artist's latest collection of songs, "Trouble and Love," is no exception. Inspired by Gauthier's real life heartbreak, the eight-track record follows the artist through the process of grieving over a lost relationship, highlighting with fine lyricism and rich, moody Americana soundscapes the good, the bad and the ugly. Gauthier brought some method acting principles to the recording process, »»»
Live at Blue Rock CD review - Live at Blue Rock
Live albums can be a tricky proposition. Even if a performer succeeds in doing justice to their material, the artist still has to find a way to enhance the originals.

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: The Killer lives on with Low Cut Connie – Jerry Lee Lewis isn't exactly out and about hitting the clubs these days. But if he was searching for someone who was carrying on his torch, he would do well to check out Adam Weiner, the force behind Low Cut Connie. The Philly band was highly entertaining with Weiner a true force of nature. Think Lewis merged with Springsteen (although The Boss is The Boss).... »»»
Concert Review: White sounds a lot better than he feels – John Paul White admitted to feeling a little uncomfortable with his current solo acoustic tour. However, with just two guitars and a microphone, White sounded a whole lot better than he likely felt. Although White sang a few songs from his 2016 "Beulah" album, including "The Once and Future Queen" and "Hate the Way You Love... »»»

Not one to rest on his laurels, Willie Nelson's second studio release of the calendar year finds the artist dipping back into the Great American Songbook.
