ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After recently completing his aggressive and unique 100 Concerts In 100 Days Tour - where from March 20th to June 27th of this year he performed 100 living room concerts throughout the nation in 100 consecutive days - singer/ songwriter Jon Troast has also worked in enough time to head back into the studio to record his latest full-length album aptly titled Living Room.

The majority of Living Room was inspired by Jon’s many experiences from his 100 Concerts in 100 Days Tour. As Jon states, “Some of it is personal refl ection from being on the road, and some of it was inspired by the people I met. It
was such a privilege to see little snapshots of people’s lives all across the country.”These “little snapshots” are neatly arranged in this engaging album that successfully melds folk and pop rock with ‘70s singer/songwriter fare and just a touch of Americana music.

Living Room marks Jon’s fourth full-length effort recorded in Nashville and produced by Mitch Dane, who also handpicked the session players for the recordings. “There are a lot of talented people in Nashville,”
Jon reveals, “and the musicians I worked with are all extremely sharp and professional, but at the same time they’re also pretty laid back... which is just my style.” One of the first things that’s apparent on these 10 tracks is the warmth of the recordings and the honest spontaneity of both the performances and arrangements. “This was the first time we recorded
on tape (analog),” Jon states. “I loved it because we tracked the drums, bass, acoustic guitar and
vocal at the same time, using only two or three takes for each song and no pitch correction. It gives
it a natural feel, very similar to a living room concert.”
Never fully content on the old paradigms of how the ‘music business’ is supposed to operate, Jon
continues to look for new paths and methods to get his music heard and appreciated. His latest idea
will find him touring the nation absolutely free for the fi rst six months of 2010. So whether booking a
house concert or a much larger public show, Jon will not charge a cent for any of these performances
- instead relying on the income from his recorded music as his sole income for the fi rst half of the year.
As he explains, “I want to make it very clear and simple that buying music supports artists. So, for the
first six months of 2010, I’m breaking it down to the basics. Since I’ll be playing my shows for free, all of
my income will come from CD and digital music sales. If I’m going to spend $50 on groceries, I need
to sell five CDs. It’s as simple as that.”
In addition to his new CD, Jon will also be releasing a concert DVD in February that features the 100th
and final show of his 100 Concerts in 100 Days Tour, filmed in his current hometown of Lake Geneva,
WI on June 27, 2009. Various video clips of Jon’s adventures as part of his 100 day tour will also be
interspersed with the concert footage making for a wonderful document of this very unique tour. After recently completing his aggressive and
