BAND BIO

Jon McLaughlin's music stays with you long after he walks off stage. Clearly, his skill as a performer can only be described as “unique”. His combination of song and conversation makes even a large audience seem intimate. As a young pianist in Anderson, Indiana, Jon spent hours transforming words into lyrics and notes into melodies. After experiencing an accident where both his wrists were shattered, playing the piano took a backseat in his life. It was not until his senior year of high school when he sat down and rediscovered his passion for his art form. Jon's songwriting finally began to take authentic shape when he enrolled in Anderson University's School of Music. There he spent countless hours developing the foundations for his debut album. With his classically trained ear and influences from Ben Folds and Billy Joel, Jon McLaughlin has crafted his unique piano-driven rock style to create a sound that has delighted audiences and coated the states with his sound. The self-titled debut album covers a mass of musical ground, beginning with the funk-rock driven Some Tight Fix, to the airy jazz sound of Blue Skies, the nonchalant elegance of Once Again, the simple and classic piano-driven Loving Me, and ending with the album's first single, a rag-time piano-roll track Throwing A Line. Jon gives the listener a look at dealing with the ups and downs of life from his point of view, making you wish life could always sound this beautiful. By awakening the independent music scene with a surge of heart rendering lyrics and ear catching grooves, Jon McLaughlin has brought a new meaning and life to the phrase piano-rock.
