LOOK: Illustrated Portraits of Logan Lynn by Los Angeles Artist Ian O’Phelan

Logan Lynn by Ian Ophelan

I came across the incredible work of an artist named Ian O’Phelan earlier this week and, in turn, reached out to him to see if he would be interested in working on the artwork for our upcoming single. While we are still chatting about whether that will come to fruition, Ian surprised me with the illustration above (where I am serving some serious Delta Burke realness) and the rad portrait below.

So cool, right? I love this guy!!! Check out more of Ian O’Phelan’s work HERE.

Logan Lynn Performing at Mo Wave Festival in Seattle (April 2014) at Chop Suey

Well, that was fun. Thanks to everyone who came out to our showcase this past Sunday at the 2014 Mo-Wave Festival in Seattle! At one point during the show, I looked out and saw Christeene, Justin Bond, Carletta Sue Kay and the boys from Night Cadet in the audience — which was really special.

I adored everyone I got to know this weekend and I look forward to seeing you all again soon! Thank you again to Mo-Wave organizers Jodi Ecklund, Markus Wilson and Seth Garrison for having us perform. Chop Suey recorded the audio and my drummer AC filmed our set, so there will be live clips sometime soon, which I will share. Here are some of the photo highlights to tide you over:

Logan Lynn and WNBA Star Player Brittney Griner at Q Center in Portland!

Brittney Griner

I had a great time hosting WNBA star (and OUT lesbian) Brittney Griner this week at Q Center in Portland! Brittney read from her book, answered questions, signed and gave out copies of “In My Skin”, took photos, and was just generally wonderful. She even brought packs of Skittles and Cliff bars for all of the LGBTQ youth and friends in attendance. What a gem!

At one point during today’s dialogue, when Brittney Griner was asked if she had any advice for queer women coming out in sports, her answer was simple: “Don’t let them silence you.”

Listen to Logan Lynn on 94.7 KNRK Alternative Portland, Out Loud Radio and Wild Planet Radio

Logan Lynn on KNRK 947fm

Though it has been happening for years now, each time I hear one of my songs on the radio feels just as exciting as the first time it happened — way back in 2005. This is probably exacerbated by the fact that whenever any of my family or friends hear me on their radios, they get all excited, too and text me about it. It’s all pretty special.

Big thanks to Portland’s Alternative radio station KNRK 94.7FM, KBOO’s Out Loud Radio, and Portland’s LGBTQ Radio Station Wild Planet Radio for all featuring my tunes this week on the air!

Tune into these stations and request that they play more of me so we can all keep feeling special forever, folks.

Pacific NW Rockers Pay Tribute to Portland’s Historic Crystal Ballroom

The Crystal Ballroom - Portland Oregon - (2013)  copy

(Originally Published on The Huffington Post on 1/2/2014, HuffPost Entertainment Section)

Portland’s Crystal Ballroom — an iconic, historic entertainment landmark for the city since 1914 — is celebrating its centennial birthday on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2014.

To ring in the anniversary, McMenamins Crystal Ballroom has amassed an epic, 100-night celebration, appropriately called “100 Nights!” The party has been going strong since this past October and keeps churning out banger shows nightly until the 21st, with a special performance by Colin Meloy of The Decemberists.

Any band who has ever played the Crystal Ballroom, any person who has every been to a show in that special place, holds some piece of this rich, 100-year history as their own — myself included.

This past week I caught up with Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney, IFC’s Portlandia), Courtney Taylor-Taylor (The Dandy Warhols), Calvin Johnson (K Records Founder) and Jimi Biron (Music Director, Crystal Ballroom) to chat about the 100 nights of shows, what this birthday means for the NW music scene, and some of the more memorable moments from the ongoing Rock and Roll spectacle that is Portland’s Crystal Ballroom.

You Know Who Had A Really Good Year? My YouTube Channel.

Still From Logan Lynn's Hologram Video (2013)

I have to say, 2013 was a really trying, intense, transformative year. If I were to pick just one word to describe it, “pleasant” doesn’t make the top of the list…but my YouTube channel begs to differ. She had a fucking GREAT year!

Thank you to all of the talented people I have been lucky enough to get to work with over the years. The following metrics have everything to do with all of you. Well, you…and Miley Cyrus.
