Over the course of eight studio albums, Mary Gauthier has firmly planted herself as a truth teller, a songwriter unafraid to dive into the emotional core of her chosen subject. It is one of the many things that connect her so deeply to her fans, and why they love her. On Dark Enough To See The Stars, she mourns the loss of dear friends that include John Prine, Nanci Griffith and David Olney, but Gauthier takes a slightly different course by offering an optimistic side of herself with songs that celebrate the joy of new love and personal contentment.

Dark Enough To See The Stars is the follow up to Gauthier’s powerful 2018 release Rifles & Rosary Beads, which was co-written with U.S. veterans and their families and served to help them cope with the trauma experienced both abroad and at home. The album received a Grammy nomination for “Best Folk Album” and won “Album Of The Year” at the International Folk Music Awards (Folk Alliance) and Gauthier was awarded the Americana Music Association UK “International Artist Of The Year” award in 2019. In 2021, Gauthier released her first book, entitled Saved By A Song: The Art and Healing Power of Songwriting. In the memoir, she shared her life experiences from addiction, abandonment and loss to compassion, empathy, kindness and ultimately triumph. It is a truly inspiring work that received critical praise and was included in Rolling Stone’s “Best Music Books of 2021”.
