“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 Jonathan Brooke, Aimee Mann, and Tracy Chapman, for example. Lori McKenna belongs to that lineage…evidence enough is Paper Wings & Halo. From McKenna’s pen flows timeless, heart-grabbing melodic lines and psyche-splintering stanzas. Paper Wings & Halo features 13 musical poems, but as oftentimes proves to be true, despite the greatest of the individual pieces, the whole is made even greater by the cohesiveness of the collection. If this album is any kind of signpost, look for McKenna’s light to be shining bright for a long while to come.” – iTunes®
