Whether writing and producing songs, performing his music, or hanging out with his two daughters, Nashville-based singer-songwriter, Jon McLaughlin puts passion into everything he does. McLaughlin has released six albums and over the years, this piano-rock musician has collaborated with fellow artists such as Sara Bareilles, Demi Lovato, and NeedtoBreathe as well as sharing the stage with artists including Kelly Clarkson, Adele, OneRepublic, Bon Jovi, and Duffy. In 2014, a dream came true when Jon even supported the legendary piano man himself, Billy Joel.

 

Jon has provided songs for television shows, such as Madam Secretary, Chicago Fire and So You Think You Can Dance. In addition to contributing music to major Hollywood films, including Bridge to Terabithia and Georgia Rule, McLaughlin earned an on-screen appearance and performance in the Oscar-nominated Disney film, Enchanted, and went on to sing “So Close,” live at the 80th Academy Awards.   

 

Filled with “infectious and catchy piano-driven melodies” (Eat Sleep Breathe Music), his new album, Like Us, has already garnered attention from notable media outlets, such as The Huffington Post, Entertainment Tonight and Perez Hilton, with the latter referring to McLaughlin as “charming as hell with a buttery voice to match.” While on a national tour in support of the album this past fall, the devoted family man partnered with charity World Vision, to build safe houses for children in Bangladesh to help them escape human trafficking.

 

“I look at the world in a dark way sometimes, but when I hear a melody, when a lyric comes to me, I feel like things are going to be OK.”

 

While the sounds and styles of the eleven songs on Scibilia’s debut album, Out of Style, span a broad spectrum—from singer-songwriter narratives to dance beats, drawing on folk, pop, and rock along the way—his hard-fought but positive spirit never wavers. Produced by critically acclaimed artist and hitmaker Butch Walker (Pink, Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban), Scibilia’s LP marks the arrival of a unique new talent. 

Brad Ray grew up in Rome, GA playing guitar and singing since the age of 12. He recently recorded an album in Nashville with Mike Rojas, the keyboardist for FLA GA Line; Rob McNeely, lead guitarist for Lady Antebellum; Pat Murphy, the engineer for Dolly Parton; Mike Brignardello, the bassist for Amy Grant and many more.
