Jon McLaughlin and Matt Wertz’ “The Win-Win Tour” with special guest Scott Mulvahill.
November 6 • 7:00 pm• $18 – $20
On Tuesday, November 6, the Community Center for the Performing Arts welcomes singer-songwriters Jon McLaughlin and Matt Wertz’ “The Win-Win Tour” to the WOW Hall with special guest Scott Mulvahill.
Jon McLaughlin, raised in Indiana and based in Nashville, brings all of his experiences and beliefs into each song he creates, something that is especially true now that he’s the father of two young girls. Jon released his debut album, Indiana, in 2007 on Island Def Jam, attracting fans with his heartfelt, hook-laden songwriting and impassioned delivery. He’s released four full-lengths in the ten years since and revealed a true evolution in both his piano playing and singing. He’s played shows with Billy Joel, Kelly Clarkson and Adele, collaborated with longtime friend Sara Bareilles, co-written with Demi Lovato and even performed at the Academy Awards in 2008. Jon’s album, Like Us, dropped in October of 2015 via Razor & Tie, and he spent the past few years touring extensively before heading back into his Nashville studio to work on new music. The musician’s latest project is his Dueling Pianos video series. Every episode features a new guest artist and mashups of never been heard arrangements.
Singer/songwriter Matt Wertz spent years creating soulful, feel-good pop music in Nashville. Looking to write an album that tackled contemporary pop music from a different angle — literally — he headed to Los Angeles, where he spent several months writing songs for his ninth album, Gun Shy. Fueled by infectious, 90’s-inspired beats, lush textures, and soaring air-tight pop melodies, Gun Shy fires twin barrels of modern pop and synthesized R&B, finding new life in old-school influences.
A Houston, TX, singer/songwriter and upright bass player, Scott Mulvahill is touring in support of his new album Himalayas. A full time member of Ricky Skaggs’s band Kentucky Thunder, Scott has received honors for his songwriting with numerous songs recorded on other artists’ albums.
