Many artists lately are using pledge sites to get the word out about new content they’re working on & to ask their fans to help them out financially – Jon has done just that by launching a pledge goal for his new album at PledgeMusic.com! It’s a really great opportunity for fans to give back to Jon for all the amazing things his music has done for us, and also get prizes for donating!
Here’s what Jon has to say about this awesome project…
I have some exciting news. I’M MAKING A NEW RECORD!!!!! Now I have some even more exciting news… I WANT YOU TO BE A PART OF IT!!!!
I have teamed up with PledgeMusic on a new campaign for this new record! Look at the right hand side of this page to check out what we’ve come up with! I also made a video which you can watch at the top of this page.
You can get exclusive merch items! You can come hang out with me on the album release day and listen to the record for the first time at the album release party!! I’ll even come to your house and play a private show for you!!!
And when you pledge, you are LITERALLY helping me make this record! Without you, there would be no record! So THANK YOU all for being the best fans a guy could ask for.
Now let’s make a record together!!
More info about City Life Wheels:
Equipping at-risk teenagers with relevant job-skills instills self-confidence and the means to provide for themselves and their future families. City Life Wheels teaches neighborhood teens basic automotive maintenance and repair skills from an ASE Certified Mechanic. City Life Wheels is a hands-on program where the students do the actual maintenance and repair work on cars donated to the program. Repaired cars are then sold to provide funding for the program.
And even if you can’t afford to donate much, even $10 will get you a digitial download of the new album and exclusive updates during the pledge process! I’m sure Jon appreciates even the smallest donation because this is all about teamwork & helping out our favorite artist in any way we can! So, go here to watch Jon’s hilarious pledge video and to donate to the cause! 10% of all donations go to City Life Wheels.

Sorry there has been a lack of updates here at Jon-Mclaughlin.com lately! Jon has been under the radar lately because (as most of you know) Jon and his wife Amy welcomed their first child into the world right before the new year. Her name is Luca, and she is completely adorable!
Jon has posted some pictures recently, which I have added to our gallery. View them below.
Here are the things we’ve missed while the site wasn’t updated…
The Promising Promises Piano Book is now available for purchase! Click here!
The “Songs I Wrote…” EP is available to purchase for the first time ever. Get it here.
“Promising Promises” can be purchased for only $5.00 on Amazon MP3.
Anyway, hope you all are having a great day and that everyone had a happy holiday and new year! I will do my best to keep the site updated with all the latest news on Jon and his career!
