Produced by Dan Knobler (Rodney Crowell, Lake Street Dive, Kelsey Waldon) and featuring Indigo Girl Amy Ray on the blistering opener, "We're All We Got," Becky Warren's Undesirable is a record about humanity. Distilling the stories of a group of entrepreneurs trying to work their way out of poverty in her homebase of Nashville, Tennessee, Warren relays the essence of the human experience and shines a spotlight on the relatable, common ties that bind us together regardless of our demographic. NPR Music’s First Listen review of the 11-song set states, “Most of the tracks here don't read as songs about homelessness, at least not on cursory listen. They chart heartbreak, new love, tough odds and quiet triumph in relatable ways, with a telling detail here or there that hints at each protagonist's broader life situation.”
