Sometimes, I’m baffled as to how an artist didn’t make it big (or even score a legitimate hit). Jon McLaughlin is one of those artists. He’s a great singer, songwriter, pianist, and also has a great look. While his first album was a little dull, I really like quite a few tracks on his more pop-oriented sophomore effort. Check out both “Dance Your Life Away” and “Four Years”, two tracks which could have easily followed “Beating My Heart”. I honestly don’t know what he’s up to at the moment, but IDJ never really gave him the push he deserved. I feel like IDJ had two perfect package artists, Jessie James and Jon McLaughlin, but weren’t able to break either of them. What’s up with that?
