As you can see we now have a brand new layout after using our other one for about 6 months! It took me so long to finalize this look, and I hope that you guys enjoy seeing something different and fresh! BUT, the new layout isn’t all that’s new here at Jon McLaughlin Source…
We now have a Jon McLaughlin Fan Community! Yep, that’s right! Now, you can come to your favorite Jon fansite (hope that’s us, haha!) and post topics with other fans anytime you want! I really encourage you guys to join the forums and start posting! I am looking forward to chatting with everyone as we all enter in a new journey with Jon this next week.
In other words, keep spreading the word about Promising Promises, and help trend #PromisingPromises and #JonMcl on Twitter!
Jon posted a new blog regarding the Promising Promises Tour and some other exciting things! Read it below!!
Also, as you can tell by the post image above, there is a new layout coming soon. Tonight!
hey you guys remember last fall when I wrote like 4 blogs a week? it’s because we were on tour and there was so much to talk about (plus an endless sea of hours riding in the van in between shows).
well get ready for more blogs because…
THE PROMISING PROMISES TOUR HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN!!
the band and I left Indianapolis this morning and are on our way to the great state of Texas. 1st we’re hitting Dallas then Houston, San Antonio & Austin before moving further westward. Especially awesome things to note about this tour are the following:
the great Bob Stamper is back from Australia and not only is he playing in the band every night but he’s also opening the shows with a solo set!! he already has some awesome stuff out (www.bobstampermusic.com) but after we finish the tour, he and I will be making a full length record together! (bob’s the artist/talent, I’m the producer/I press record). I’ll keep you posted on that but it’s going to be awesome.
we have a new member of the team. his name is Brian. he’s our new tour manager. his name is Brian. we’re choosing to call him B-ri because it’s it’s the right thing to do.
on this tour we have a little light set up! we got these really cool looking lamps and a couple super bright lights called “blinders”. they’re called blinders because we turn them up really bright and try to blind the audience.
so watch out.
I’ll see you fine folks out on the road!!
stay cool. or uncool. whatever.

A new biography has been written which focuses on Jon’s new album Promising Promises (out on May 22nd!) Read it below…
Speaking from his home in the Midwest on a beautiful spring day, singer-songwriter Jon McLaughlin would strike you as a pretty relaxed guy. As he recounts his numerous accomplishments without any bravado, it would be understandable for McLaughlin to feel like he could coast a little as he prepares to release his third album, Promising Promises (Razor & Tie). Case in point: An aptitude for piano discovered as a child, submersion in all school related music programs, college to continue his study of music, cultivating a big online following in the early days of social media, scoring a label deal at age 21, inking big song placements on television and movies, a performance at the Academy Awards, selling 170k albums, debuting at #1 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart – pretty heady stuff for a guy from Indiana who just wanted to be able to play like Billy Joel someday…” [Read the Rest]
If you missed Jon’s Livestream performance and interview earlier today, you can still watch it here! Jon answered a ton of fan questions and also performed “Industry,” “Promising Promises,” “Summer is Over,” “Why I’m Talking To You,” “Beating My Heart,” “I’ll Follow You,” and the theme song to The Office!
Check out some photos of the performance and Jon-Mclaughlin.com‘s Hi-Def screen captures (1200 of them!) in the gallery.
Which was your favorite performance? I’d have to say “Promising Promises” or “Why I’m Talking To You!”
Four new photo shoot images from Jon’s Promising Promises album shoot have been added to the gallery. If you find any more or any that are larger, please send them to email@example.com. We’d really appreciate it! Enjoy the pictures.
Try saying the title of this post 5 times fast… haha! Now we can all go pre-order Jon’s new album (which comes out 3 weeks from today) Promising Promises! You can go to JonMcL.com to find out about all seven of the pre-order packages which range from $10.00 – $79.99! I’m thinking about doing the most expensive package just because I really want everything so bad! The big package comes with the album, digital download, t-shirt, poster, calendar, postcards, and a meet-and-greet with Jon on his spring tour (or instead of the meet-and-greet, a personalized acoustic performance of “The Atmosphere”).
What package are you guys going to order or do you just plan on getting the album itself? Leave your comments!
Don’t miss out on your chance to chat with Jon this Wednesday, May 2nd at 5:30 PM Eastern Standard Time. He will be doing a live performance and answering questions from fans via Livestream. RSVP at this link and sign up to get a reminder before the show starts!
Also, there is a new photo shoot image from Jon’s Promising Promises album shoot added to out gallery. View it here! It’s my new favorite photo! I can’t wait to see more of these pictures surface online.
P.S. – A new layout on the site and gallery is coming soon. Stay tuned!
Check out Jon’s short video where he explains how to join the McLovers Street Team and what it’s all about! It’s hilarious (and very informative)! Also, if you need to know more about how to get involved with the McLovers, check out this post we made from earlier today.
