About Logan Lynn
If the Land of Misfit Toys elected a team of cultural ambassadors, Logan Lynn would be its poet laureate. In Portland's pulsating music scene, he occupies a singular position- an emo prophet with a penchant for electronic beats, preaching the Good Word to drug-damaged crybabies.
After getting a lo-fi mixtape from 1998 called "This Is Folk Techno" into the right hands, he released his debut album in 2000. Logan Lynn's "GLEE" is a blissful, sex-drenched romp through some emotionally treacherous territory. Produced by Pfog, heavy themes of religion, sexuality and identity played out alongside upbeat grooves and smiley-face rhythms. It has been said that Lynn's blend of spleen-venting lyrics and "Let's Dance!" optimism "puts the disco back into discomfort."
His self-titled sophomore effort was released in 2006, using his earlier work as a springboard for exploring fresh sonic territory. The album release coincided with a performance alongside The Presets, Bob Mould and My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult for over 400,000 people at San Francisco's Folsom Street Fair. The release of "Logan Lynn" brought with it five music videos which can, for all intents and purposes, be credited for putting Lynn's music on the map.
A remix collaboration with Producer Carlos Cortes of Portland DJ collective Assemble The Empire yielded an E.P. entitled "Feed Me To The Wolves", which was released in the fall of 2007. In 2008, Logan hosted the music television show "NewNowNext" on MTV's Logo Network and his video for "Feed Me To The Wolves" was picked by the network as one of the "TOP 10 OF 2008"! He was signed to The Dandy Warhols' record label, "BEAT THE WORLD" RECORDS, and will be releasing his much anticipated 3rd full length record, "FROM PILLAR TO POST" in 2009.
Logan has begun working on a new studio album with Carlos, as well as an additional new record with Producer Mac Valentine. The boys are also gearing up for tour in the fall, so...STAY TUNED! Much, MUCH more to come...
