Three women, three guitars and the words, music, and hard-won wisdom from three lifetimes spent in pursuit of the song. Three Women and The Truth is a trio of accomplished, richly talented, multiple award winning female songwriters whose songs cut through the murky layers of life's complexities. Writing from their own experience, these songwriters are skilled in balancing personal tales with classic underpinnings, which hint at the evocative idea that all our lives are full of events and incidents that touch on the mythic and the timeless.
Mary Gauthier is a singer songwriter whom the Associated Press named one of the best songwriters of her generation. Voted 2005’s New Artist of the Year by The Americana Music Association, she has been praised by both Dylan and Waits, and her songs have been recorded by dozens of artists, including Jimmy Buffett, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw and Candi Staton.
“With songwriting as powerful as hers, there’s no need to go looking for qualifiers…[Mary Gauthier is] a unique, intrinsically valuable musical voice. And there’s never a surplus of those.” – Randy Lewis, Los Angeles Times
Eliza Gilkyson is a two-time Grammy nominated singer, songwriter and activist who is one of the most respected musicians in Folk, Roots and Americana circles. Her songs have been covered by Joan Baez, Bob Geldof, Tom Rush and Rosanne Cash and have appeared in films, PBS specials and on prime-time TV.
“Whether she looks into darkness or light, Eliza Gilkyson’s vision is impressive, and she’s given us another remarkable glimpse at her gifts as a vocalist and songwriter on The Nocturne Diaries.” – All Music Guide
Gretchen Peters — Twice Grammy-nominated and CMA Song of the Year winner for the groundbreaking “Independence Day” (Martina McBride), Gretchen Peters has cut her own artistic path, touring continually in both North America and the UK and Europe, and releasing nine critically acclaimed albums on the way.
