Three Women & The Truth: Gauthier, Gilkyson, Miles

JEFF ROSENBERG
8 pm, Tuesday June 24 | $30. Under 21 permitted with legal guardian.
Aladdin Theater
3017 SE Milwaukie Ave.
 

[SINGER-SONGWRITER] Canadian singer-songwriter Lynn Miles borrowed Harlan Howard's famous quote about what constitutes country music ("three chords and the truth") for a tune of the same name. It's been adapted, in turn, to title tonight's show, Three Women and the Truth, joining Miles with celebrated Americana artists Eliza Gilkyson and Mary Gauthier. All three women have new albums out featuring typically rootsy accompaniment, smooth but slightly scratchy vocals and hard-won lyrical wisdom. Gauthier's Trouble & Love may be the strongest of these, its brevity—a mere eight songs—matching the singer's manner of eking out emotion through clipped vocal lines and terse poetry. Gilkyson's The Nocturne Diaries continues her ongoing winning streak, featuring tunes reportedly written in the middle of the night, while Miles offers new collection Downpour
