Jon McLaughlin
Jon McLaughlin
Singer-songwriter and skilled pianist Jon McLaughlin is ushering in the holiday spirit this fall with his new EP and a string of tour dates. Born and raised in Anderson, Indiana, Jon began taking classical piano lessons at an early age. During high school he began incorporating his piano skills into soulful pop music, then enrolled in the music program at Anderson University, where he studied piano and spent his free time writing songs.

After signing with Island Records and releasing his debut album INDIANA, the song “Beautiful Disaster” quickly climbed up the charts, with “Beating My Heart” following quickly after. Hollywood took notice of the young songwriter and in addition to using his music for films and commercials, Jon himself was offered a role in the hit film Enchanted, performing his song “So Close.” The song was later nominated for an Academy Award, and in 2008 he found himself onstage at the Oscars reprising the tune in front of 32 million US viewers. In between the hit songs and television appearances, true to his hardworking Midwestern roots, Jon spent his nights opening for the likes of Sara Bareilles and Kelly Clarkson, recording with Demi Lovato and writing for other artists.

Jon eventually parted ways with Island and has been forging his own independent path for the past few years. He is currently gearing up to release a holiday EP this fall, with a new album on the slate for 2018.
