Playing piano since early childhood, Jon McLaughlin grew up in Anderson, Indiana. He didn’t want to take piano lessons anymore and was always finding ways to get out of doing so. While attending Highland High School, McLaughlin shattered both wrists in an accident that interrupted his musical expression. Rediscovering “his muse,” McLaughlin attended Anderson University to study music. He released an independent album entitled, “Up Until Now” in 2003. This quickly led to McLaughlin becoming the first artist to sign on with the school’s burgeoning, if not local, record label, Orangehaus Records. The self-titled album released in 2004 to local and regional praise. He began touring, traveling throughout the Midwest and working up a grassroots following.
Beating of My HeartThere's a sun coming over the horizon.
I wanna know where its coming from,
but doesnt everyone?
Its like who am I,
and why am I here.
Until You Got Love
