Unbeautiful is the debut album of Lesley Roy. It was released on September 30, 2008 by Religion Music in her native Ireland, and Jive Records elsewhere.

Background[edit]

Lesley Roy began recording her album during 2007. She started promoting her first single and she did live performances. She performed on The Today Show and The Early Show.

Album[edit]

The album, titled "Unbeautiful" was released on September 30, 2008. It peaked on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart at #5.[4] She described the meaning of the album's name, "Unbeautiful" as the title of one of her favorite songs on the album; "I called the album that because it’s when I hit rock bottom. It’s the question a lot of people ask when they’re in a relationship, and it’s like ‘where was the point where you didn’t find me attractive anymore?’ It’s a universal feeling and an unusual word. A lot of people ask me about it and relate to it. And the world is not perfect right now. "Unbeautiful" seems like a realistic title for a lot of things that are happening"
