Huge thanks to the band FUN. for having me as the guest on their Ally Coalition “Contact” show this week!
Listen to the episode HERE or press play below.
I adore what this band does with their fame for LGBTQ rights, creating safe space for queer and trans youth to connect with local resources at all of their shows, donating money to sexual & gender minority orgs, etc. If all popular artists took a lesson from FUN. the world would be a much better place.
Thanks again guys!!!

Quick shout-out to Cameron Kude for his ideas and efforts and to photographer Chase Person for lending his talents to this project! I am always so moved when people give back in creative ways to the community I care so deeply about! You guys are awesome.

I just picked up a copy of the current issue of Willamette Week and discovered that they picked my Portland show as one of their “Highly Recommended” events this week and included the following review of my new record, tour, return to music, etc. in print and online.
Thank you, Willy Week! I love love LOVE the hometown welcome I was given this week by the local press and community. Portland Monthly Magazine, The Portland Mercury, PQ Monthly and Willamette Week all picked the Portland stop on my summer tour as a must-do…which was such a treat! I’m blushing over all the gushing, Puddletown. Thanks so much!!!

“[GLOW STICKS, BOAS AND CASIO DREAMS] Since announcing his “extended hiatus” from music in 2010, former Dandy Warhols protégé Logan Lynn stepped back from the corporate machine behind major-label breakthrough From Pillar to Post and joined the staff at local queer hub Q Center. A few years and a charity record later, the Portland electro-popper is back with Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks, a layered confection of shiny beats, blips and synths with more lyrical heft (“Hologram,” “Loud Enough”) than the average dance-floor soundtrack. Lynn is back on the road, too, thanks to the Accidental Bear Queer Music Benefit tour, a five-city bicoastal trek to support LGBT and related mental-health resources nationwide. Also on the disco-ball-begging bill: trippy glam rockers Conquistador and the hairy hip-hop of Chicago bear MC Big Dipper, which is most assuredly not a football thing.”
