AUDIO: Mary Gauthier (1999)

Chris Smith, Rock's Backpages Audio, 4 September 1999

Ms. Gauthier talks about her road from a tricky childhood, via addiction and alcoholism, to her place as a songwriter: ambition vs. self-destruction; her community of outsiders; the meaning of truth; her move to Boston and running restaurants; doing her first open-mic nights, and all about songwriting.
