Jon has posted some pictures recently, which I have added to our gallery. View them below.

It’s safe to say Jon McLaughlin has had a pretty accomplished career so far. He has appeared in a Disney movie, toured with some high-end mainstream acts, and performed in front of 32 million at the Oscars. The singer/songwriter has been around since 2003, steadily releasing records throughout the years. His latest, Promising Promises, is exactly what the first word in the title says: Promising.
Promising Promises begins with the title track, and it’s easy to see that the album will be piano driven. The song is extremely catchy and also shows off the vocals of McLaughlin. With some added guitars and soaring vocals, it sets the stage for the rest of the album. “You Never Know” follows and slows down the pace from the beginning track. The song keeps the piano while adding in some hand claps and guitar. There’s a little bit of a southern twang to the track, which actually fits well into the grand scheme. [Read More]

Jon McLaughlin’s new album Promising Promises embodies McLaughlin’s irresistible songwriting style along with his sweetly melancholic approach to storytelling. As he explains, “It feels really good to have a record that I’m working on that I can really deliver wholeheartedly knowing that the fans are getting a piece of me.” He continues, “There isn’t a note on the record that I didn’t spend hours scrutinizing over, or at the very least sitting with and playing over and over again. I feel like it’s a real connection to me.” Promising Promises takes flight on the album’s first single, “Summer Is Over,” (featuring Sara Bareilles) written for a friend in the throes of a crushing break-up. The track is the perhaps the most incendiary of Jon’s career. Also at the core of Promising Promises are songs like “These Crazy Times,’ (written after the Gulf of Mexico oil spill), “If Only I” (bearing a different take on loss, written from the perspective of a person deeply, madly in love with someone they’ve never worked up the courage to talk to) and the album’s consuming title track, “Promising Promises,” a piano tour-de-force.

Not to be confused with John McLaughlin, Jon McLaughlin is a promising pop rock artist from Indiana. Promising Promises is his third full studio album. He has been spotted on tour opening up for acts like Kelly Clarkson and Sara Bareilles. Along with writing and performing music, he also made an appearance playing a song for the Disney movie Enchanted, which led to a famous performance at the 80th Academy Awards. Jon McLaughlin has accomplished plenty of things at his young age of 29, and I strongly believe that he will continue to do so with his immense talent.[Read More]
