Late last year, singer/songwriter and pianist, Jon McLaughlin, visited our Austin office as he made his way through town on his first tour since 2009. He was kind enough to play a few songs from his latest album to a delighted crowd of employees. Then, he sat down for an interview with Music Designer Janica Quach, where they talked about how he got started in music, his biggest influences, the making of Promising Promises, and what it’s like to tour again after a two year hiatus. And since he made an appearance in Disney’s Enchanted, we had to ask him about Patrick Dempsey…

His third studio album (his first on Razor & Tie), Promising Promises, was released last Tuesday and includes the single “Summer Is Over (featuring Sara Bareilles).” Hopefully you caught him last Sunday, May 20th, at Stubb’s in Austin, TX because he puts on quite a show!
