Unglamorous marks a new stage in the career of Lori McKenna, a gifted contemporary singer/songwriter from Massachusetts who makes her major-label debut here. Her previous releases -- Paper Wings and Halo (2000), Pieces of Me (2001), The Kitchen Tapes (2003), and Bittertown (2004) -- were spare, masterfully written, and sometimes painfully intimate. It was easy to envision McKenna sitting at home alone -- her husband away at work and her kids safely at school -- writing songs at her kitchen table with her acoustic guitar in hand, recording her music onto blank cassettes as a ticking clock fills the quiet between songs.
