From MySpace Music: “Logan Lynn is Raising His Voice in the Face of Fear” (6/22/16)

As the victim toll rose from the shooting at Orlando’s PULSE nightclub on the morning of June 12, pop-rock singer-songwriter Logan Lynn, like many others, was shaken, saddened, and angry. He was also scared, and that was the emotion that would push him most. “My reaction to my own fear is to be louder,” he explains.

“I think a lot of my friends, and my band, and my producer, and my publicist, were all like, what the hell do we do,” he says of the days after the mass murder. The answer, they concluded, was to release Lynn’s latest single, “Go There When You Want To Be Loved,” ahead of schedule, with all of the proceeds going to support the recovery efforts in Orlando’s LGBT community.

“It made me feel like I wasn’t just sitting here helpless,” Lynn says of the decision. “I’m a gay man, so I can’t donate blood, even to save other gay men who are dying because they are losing their own blood, so it felt very much like I needed to do something other than sit on my hands.”

The song is a personal one for Lynn. “I wrote the song about feeling like I didn’t have a safe place in the world as a gay man. My struggle to find love, or acceptance, not just externally, but internally. This feeling like I’m a man without a country, I’m a man without a place to go.” Read the rest of this entry »

Our new charity single, “Go There When You Want To Be Loved”, a fundraiser in support of the Pulse Orlando families and survivors, is featured today on The Deli.

From The Deli: “Logan Lynn Releases Single for Orlando Victims” (6/22/16):

The recent tragedy that happened at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub has obviously stunned the nation but more specifically, the LGBTQI community as the center of the attack. While many of us remain mournful and full of sorrow, some took to their respective creative outlets to express their feelings. Local Logan Lynn falls into that latter category.

He released his track for “Go There When You Want To Be Loved” just two days after the June 12th massacre, with a heartfelt statement on the track’s Bandcamp page.

“I feel sick and afraid. I want to cancel all of my upcoming public appearances and find a closet to go back inside of. But I cannot. And I will not. I will not be made quiet by fear. I will not let American apathy dictate my path. And I will never stop hoping that change will come,” Logan wrote.

“I wrote this song “Go There When You Want To Be Loved” about my own feeling that there is no safe place for me in the world at times as a gay man, as a person living with persistent mental health struggles, and as a public person known for both. These lyrics feel like the only words I can find for how I am feeling, so I am releasing it now as a fundraiser for my queer family in Orlando.”

Logan’s sentiments aren’t outcast, as many relate and are looking for this opportunity as a much needed chance to band together and support one another. With vigils happening across the world and very inclusive, grandiose ones happening on Portland’s front, that support is extensive.

All proceeds from Logan’s track are going towards the recovery of the LGBTQI community in Orlando. We’re coming out of Pride Week, but don’t let that stop the feeling. Listen to it, share it, do what you can. The community needs it.

From Coming Up Music Magazine: “Logan Lynn Continues To Keep Oregon Well” (6/21/16)

According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness, about 1 in 5 adults in the US experience mental illness in a year. Imagine sitting on a bus and taking a look around – during rush hour, that’s a lot of people sitting on the bus going through something whether it be anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder or one of the other illnesses out there. Research has been done, but there’s still a ways to go before fully understanding them all. For now doctors continue to help those in need and people like artist Logan Lynn, along with Keep Oregon Well, are advocates for the matter.

Suffering from mental illness on a personal level, Lynn knows all too well what others are going through and wanted to lend his helping hand. He does so not only with Keep Oregon Well, but also by being honest and direct about his own experiences through his music – like on his upcoming release ADIEU. Lynn sat down with Coming Up to talk about a little bit of everything, so check it out below.

Kendra Beltran: Mental illness is something you’re quite the advocate for. When did you start wanting to be a sort of voice for making people more aware of it?

Logan Lynn: That’s true. I am…and I think this happened really by accident. Read the rest of this entry »
