INDEPENDENT ARTIST, JONATHAN LAIRD “POPS” INTO THROUGH THE SOUTH TO PROMOTE HIS FIRST MUSICAL RELEASE
HUNTSVILLE,AL (October 1, 2011) — With a chill in the air, and a turn of the seasons, Nashville artist Jonathan Laird celebrates the first leg of his Southeast regional “Tangled Up In Me” tour celebrating his critically acclaimed EP, “Tangled Up In Me.”
Consisting of original music inspired by pop culture heroes, both young and old, this young 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)
