Co-writing most of the songs on her first project with INO Records, Williamson defines Undisguised as shedding the performance mentalityall the comparisons, pretending, facades and disguises. Speaking honestly, Im admitting that Im flawed, says Williamson. Im a broken vesselthankfully, God uses broken vessels.
Undisguised reveals Williamsons greatest challenge in life, the obstacle she embraces and continues to face daily. My biggest struggle has been feeling the need to perform and be perfect all the time, she says. Growing up, I found myself motivated to meet peoples expectations. Even on my past work, I felt like I had to prove myself to people. I still struggle with it, but God has been breaking down my self-view through the process of this record and Im at the place now where Im re-learning that I dont have to do anything to gain His approval.
Undisguised features songs that share with the listener Williamsons honest and worshipful pleas, along with a love song to her husband Charley, titled You Are the One. The song Dear Performer is a personal take on herself, while Work It Out is an encouragement to a wandering friend. Taken from a poem written by her mother, Oh Wounded King is a song Williamson was compelled to write a melody to, as its words really touched her heart. The title cut, Undisguised, and a remake of Michael W. Smiths Unloved sum the message of Kara Williamson and Undisguised.
"Where You Are" and "Love Is For Always" are the albums first radio singles, going for adds at AC/Inspo and CHR radio respectively.
Managed by Blanton Harrell Cooke & Corzine Management based in Nashville, Williamson has toured with Michael W. Smith and Point of Grace for the Christmastime Tour, on the Christmas with Amy Grant tour as well as participating on the iWorship Tour and dates with Natalie Grant and The Katinas.
