Artist Spotlight: Jon McLaughlin

"After all, we're only human
Always fighting what we're feeling
Hurt instead of healing
After all we're only human
Is there any other reason
Why we stay instead of leaving
After all"

So goes the refrain of the beautifully poignant "Human" by Jon McLaughlin, a talented singer/pianist from Indiana.

Be sure to grab a copy of his amazing new album "Indiana". Highlights are "Human", "Indiana" and "Beautiful Disaster".


Five From My Playlist - 05/01/2007

1. "If Everyone Cared" - Nickelback. Outstanding lyrics. Example - " And as we lie beneath the stars / We realize how small we are / If they could love like you and me / Imagine what the world could be". If you have not seen the video - check it out - the statistics pointed out are staggering.

2. "What I've Done" - Linkin Park. A song of taking responsibilities for one's own actions. Another world-changing concept.

3. "Nothing Left to Lose" - Mat Kearney. Great song for a care-free summer.

4. "Stolen" - Dashboard Confessional. DC's Chris Carrabba has a voice like butter, and this song showcases it.

5. "Boston" - Augustana. A lovely song with a lovely piano part.
