The collection of high-energy songs and intimate acoustic tracks showcases Jon's exceptional vocal range. Elton John has praised JPL for his superb singing voice, admiring his "great pitch and phrasing." The eagerly anticipated album features Jon's band that includes "some of the most talented musicians in the business," according to producer David Rolfe.

Jon was a top ten finalist on American Idol's third season. Simon Cowell hailed JPL as the "dark horse to win the competition," while Rolling Stone Magazine pegged him as a "pick to win." Following Jon's successful run on Idol and subsequent tour, he chose take the time to develop his own sound and unique style before releasing an album.

Jon and his band have been playing shows throughout the country, including performances at the world renowned Viper Room in Hollywood, California. Jon was invited to the 2006 CMJ Music Marathon in New York City, performing at Crash Mansion and joining the event as a panelist. He is a frequent guest of radio and television, most recently performing live on the worldwide morning show, Fox & Friends. Jon was also a presenter at the recent 2006 New Music Weekly Awards Show and is making final plans for a nationwide tour.

The aptly titled CD, Stories from Hollywood, reflects Jon's Hollywood experiences while revealing an impressive rock and roll side to him. "We expected JPL to rock us, but not with music this crisp and a backing band this hot," writes Jessica Venditto of AI Magazine. "The long wait was worth it."
