"Jon McLaughlin is a young singer-songwriter and pianist who's out with his major label debut album, "Indiana." McLaughlin was inspired to name the album in honor of his home state after he was far away from home in California for an extended period of time. Being in the big city gave him greater appreciation for his small town Midwestern roots."
