Excellent new CD

 


It's been awhile since I've discovered new music that I love to this degree. I saw an online review about this artist, and just on an absolute whim, picked up his new CD last time I was in....okay, Walmart. I can't even think of the last time I bought a new CD that wasn't a throw back to the '70s or '80s where my favorite group was the CARS...Oh how I loved that group...Anyway, if you like soft-ish rock, but not too soft, with a little tiny bit of jazzy orchestra, then you may just fall as deeply in love with Jon McLaughlin as I have. It's the only CD that I play in my car now, and I start right out with #4 (Already In) played over and over about 5 times before I can move on. I just LOVE loving a new artist--there have been several that I loved over the years since the CARS rocked my life, but I think this one is going to have some staying power in my fickle music world. :)

Thanks Con! I will check him out on iTunes. I was for sure thinking this was going to be about you know who..John Schmidt Christmas round 2. If there was an award for the funniest post of the year I would vote for that hands down.

I'm impressed, Mom ... way to branch out and try new music! I hope you bring him to Utah with you this weekend.

Oh, Bon! What a crushing disappointment for you--I didn't even THINK to make that connnection. You are a clever girl, you are! :) I think you would like his music, too. It is fun because all the songs are different styles--you never know what you're going to get....Kind of like a box of chocolates. :)

Did you know that he wrote the love song in "Enchanted"? He's the one singing while they slow dance at the ball. I thought the name sounded familiar.

Yes, I just read about him online today, and I was so impressed! I also found out that he is the one PLAYING that beautiful piano you hear in all his songs. Wow. And he is also a very good person who writes only G-rated songs. Bless his heart I hope he stays that way. His popularity is just exploding right now, and we all know how that can go... :) I ordered his newest CD today off Amazon. I can't wait to get it!!!
