Promising Promises embodies McLaughlin's irresistible songwriting style and charismatic live performances. The album features songs all written and produced by Jon McLaughlin and was partially recorded in 2011 with additional material currently completed in Jon's home state of Indiana with his core band. At the heart of Promising Promises remains Jon's sweetly melancholy songs. McLaughlin was able to let his stories and characters live through painfully honest and telling lyrics. With Jon's lead single he returns to a more traditional view of heartbreak with the wistful "Summer is Over," written for a friend in the throes of a crushing break-up.
The mid-western born and raised Jon McLaughlin has released two albums 2007's Indiana and 2008's OK Now with Island Records. His hit singles "Beautiful Disaster" and "Beating My Heart" propelled the singer songwriter up the charts and to date he has sold more than 1 million digital tracks and 170,000 albums. In 2008 McLaughlin appeared as himself in the film Enchanted starring Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey singing the song "So Close." The song was nominated for an Academy Award and Jon performed it at the Oscars in front of 32 million US viewers. The 29 year old McLaughlin plays both piano and guitar and has performed on such television shows as The Today Show, The Tonight Show and The CBS Early Show and been featured on NPR's Weekend Edition. USA Today has raved about his "indelibly catchy" music and Billboard has declared his songs have "instantaneous hit potential, and proper promotion could propel the artist to superstar status." His music has been featured in film and television shows such as Disney's Bridge To Terabithia, Universal Pictures' Georgia Rule, CBS's Ghost Whisperer, CBS's Flashpoint, an ABC Primetime promo spot, NBC's Scrubs, and NBC's The Event. McLaughlin has toured with Kelly Clarkson, Adele, Colbie Caillat, Sara Bareilles, One Republic, Paolo Nutini, Duffy and many more.
