From AMP Concerts:
Mary Gauthier's most recent album, The Foundling, opened the door on the defining circumstance of her life, the emotional journey and aftermath of finding the mother who abandoned her in New Orleans after her birth. The story of The Foundling resonated across the country, literally, and was named in many year-end Top Album lists. In the Los Angeles Times, music writer Randy Lewis noted: "The acclaimed Louisiana singer and songwriter tackles the most powerful story of all?that of her own life?in this extraordinarily powerful and clear-eyed song cycle encompassing issues of abandonment, adoption, identity, blame, forgiveness and love set to music as richly diverse as the thematic content."
