INDEPENDENT ARTIST, JONATHAN LAIRD “POPS” INTO THE SOUTH TO PROMOTE HIS FIRST MUSICAL RELEASE
HUNTSVILLE, AL (August 2, 2016) — With the heat of the summer, and sweat on his brow, Huntsville artist Jonathan Laird celebrates the release of his first published single, “Bigger Than Myself.”
Inspired by pop culture heroes, both young and old, this music aficionado puts his own twist on some very familiar sounds. Huntsville's publication, “Valley Planet” voted him “Best Jazz Artist” in their “Best of the Valley” reader's poll in 2010. His songs have been spun on independent podcasts in Germany, New York, and the United Kingdom, and two songs from his current EP release, “Tangled Up In Me” have been aired on 104.3 WZYP out of Huntsville. His EP was produced by Cam DeVaney. (Flyleaf) Since then, Jonathan has not only continued growing as a singer/songwriter and guitarist. He has also become very adept at recording, mixing and producing. Jonathan plays with Birmingham's renowned artist and Gigmasters #1 National Country Artist, Robert Abernathy.
Jonathan delivers a hooky slice of happiness by combining head-bopping grooves, silky vocals and picturesque lyricism. It's a style of modern pop that meshes elements of Paul Simon and John Mayer with George Benson and Jason Mraz. He is currently writing songs for his first full-length recording, has shared the stage with Independent Christian artists Jonathan Lee, Kathleen Carnali, Jason Albert and Norris Jones (Michael Jackson), and opened at festivals for Incubus and Sister Hazel. He has shared the studio with Buddy Hyatt (Toto) and Bruce Boughton (Reba McEntire). He currently performs as a solo artist, producer, mixing engineer, and is also a supporting musician for other artists. Jonathan has also played benefits ranging from The Arthritis Foundation to Relay for Life and Susan G. Komen.
Most recently, Jonathan released his brand new singles, Somebody Loves Me and Bigger Than Myself, available for online streaming and downloading.
