Just four years ago, Jon Mclaughlin’s Island Records debut propelled his song “Beautiful Disaster” up the charts, with “Beating My Heart” following quickly after. Hollywood immediately took notice of the young songwriter and didn’t stop at just using several of his songs for films and commercials. McLaughlin himself was offered a role in the hit film Enchanted, performing a song that was later nominated for an Academy Award. In 2008, he found himself onstage at the Oscars reprising the tune in front of 32 million US viewers. In between the hit songs and television appearances, true to his hardworking Midwestern roots, McLaughlin spent his nights opening for the likes of Sara Bareilles and Kelly Clarkson, recording with Jason Mraz and writing for other artists.
Katrina Woolverton is an American singer/songwriter and recording artist from Los Angeles, California. She rose to fame in 2011 with the release of her debut album In The Blink Of An Eye that featured three top charting singles, "Shame on Me" (#1 on iHeartRadio Top 20 On Demand Adult Chart and #46 on the Billboard Hot AC Chart), "OPM" (#26 Billboard Hot Dance) and "So Eden" (Billboard Hot AC Top 50.) Katrina was named iHeartRadio's "Artist to Watch in 2011" and was the opening act in the U.S. for Meatloaf during the Mad, Mad World Tour 2012. In 2012 and 2013 she released two stand-alone singles, "Watch Me Walk Away" (#43 Billboard Hot AC) the only non-Woolverton composition she has recorded - originally penned by Katy Perry along with co-writers Charlie Midnight and Holly Knight; and "Ready To Love," collaborating with electropop producer/remixer Frankmusik (Vincent Frank) who has worked with Ellie Goulding ("Wish I Stayed"), and many others. "Ready To Love" reached #33 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Song Chart, and the #12 of the Billboard Dance Club Chart.
