'What's One More Time'

betterthanyours

..made me get all choked up despite the fact that under normal circumstances this is the kind of music I download for the express purpose of making mixes for my Mom, who bless her sincerity, likes folk, baroque classical and even pop-country. Lovely harmonies on "What's One More Time." You will like this if Catie Curtis, Shawn Colvin, Sarah Hickman, Tom Rush, Cliff Eberhart, and Greg Brown tickle your fancy.

They Say All Music Guide

Many a folkie has partaken of the Boston music scene hoping against hope to emerge from the pack as the singular beacon of success, as did Jonatha Brooke, Aimee Mann, and Tracy Chapman, for example. Lori McKenna belongs to that lineage, though she still walks among the throngs of should-be-better-knowns. Evidence enough is Paper Wings & Halo, which was released independently in 1998 and certainly warrants some attention. From McKenna’s pen flow timeless, heart-grabbing melodic lines and psyche-splintering stanzas. Vocally, her powerful, yet touching delivery lies somewhere between and betwixt a few other New Englanders, namely Patty Griffin, Melissa Ferrick, and Ellis Paul. Paper Wings & Halo features 13 musical poems, but as oftentimes proves to be true, despite the greatness of the individual pieces, the whole is made even greater by the cohesiveness of the collection. And although three of the tracks were recorded live, the flow is seamless thanks to the simple, thoughtful production offered by Seth Connelly. If this album is any kind of signpost, look for McKenna’s light to be shining bright for a long while to come. – Kelly McCartney
