jon mclaughlin: indiana. wow. just got this in the mail from some record label. didn’t have any expectations whatsoever. but it’s fantastic! sounds like a piano-based john mayer to me (more than the billy joel and ben folds mentions in the accompanying press page). easy to listen to, but not sleepy. fantastic voice, great songs.

i’m glad to see that people are starting to hear his stuff. he and his bandmates are really great guys (they’re friends of a friend and stayed at my house once). i would highly recommend digging for some of his older stuff or seeing him live, because i found his the record almost disappointing compared to the times i’ve seen him live. he’s a very talented, super-grounded guy who’s gonna be making great music for quite a while.
We saw him in Austin at SXSW…we thought he was awesome! Great taste in music!
Shout out to his home town which is my home town Anderson, Indiana and my alma mater Anderson University. Props to A Town.
