Mary Gauthier New Release 9/18 – Tour Information

On September 18, Lost Highway will release Between Daylight And Dark, the new album from critically-acclaimed singer/songwriter Mary Gauthier, of whom Entertainment Weekly says, “The beauty of Gauthier’s country noir lies in the humanity of her characters, and in the sweet yearning of her gruff Louisiana drawl.”

Between Daylight And Dark is Gauthier’s fifth album and the follow up to her 2005 breakthrough Mercy Now, which garnered high praise in the media. Gauthier was named 2005 New Emerging of the Year Artist by the Americana Music Association.

Gauthier’s continuing evolution as a songwriter is evident throughout the 10 songs that comprise Between Daylight And Dark. “I’ve matured – and my writing has matured,” she says, “Mercy Now was as close as I’d ever come to capturing the voices in my head and bringing them to life, but with these new songs, while I still insert myself into each one, they have become much less autobiographical and more observational.”

Between Daylight And Dark was cut live, with minimal overdubs, and produced by Joe Henry. The album features guest appearances by Van Dyke Parks (piano on “Can’t Find The Way”) and Loudon Wainwright (backing vocals on “Soft Place To Land” and “I Ain’t Leaving”).
