“How You Learn To Live Alone” is from the album Trouble & Love by Mary Gauthier, an American folk singer and songwriter.
The following quote pertaining to this album is from NPR Music:
“To be affected by these songs, you don’t have to know anything of Gauthier’s backstory (Louisiana orphan addict chef turned sober troubadour), the respect she commands across gender lines in the Americana scene, or the heavyweight catalog she’s built out of unflinching introspection and Southern Gothic-shaded storytelling.”
And another from Rolling Stone:
“Every tune is a rough gem of melody, misery and economy, as Gauthier excavates romantic wreckage like an archaeologist telling a story of fossilized love.”
“How You Learn To Live Alone” is my favorite “gem” on this album. In the following video, Mary Gauthier is joined by fellow singer/songwriter Gretchen Peters and Duane Eddy on guitar.
