While I did not win an Oscar at tonight’s Academy Awards, my cover of Miley Cyrus’ We Can’t Stop passed the 900,000 views mark on YouTube…which, if you ask me, counts for something!
Thanks to all of you for watching, to Miley and RCA Records/Sony Music Entertainment for granting us the honor, and to New York Magazine, Vulture, Huffington Post and everyone else who has helped get the word out about the little song that could.
Let’s get this puppy to 1 million views, eh?! That sounds really cute.
My “We Can’t Stop” cover passed half a million views this week on YouTube just 2 months after its release! Thanks for watching, everyone. I’m honestly speechless…which almost never happens.
…and thank you Miley Cyrus! Holy shit, bro.

Thanks to New York Magazine for featuring our Miley Cyrus cover on their Vulture video page again this week! This song was released 2 months ago today and, while I know it sounds totally weird, it has actually changed my life in the weeks since.
Click HERE to check it out. The video has been watched a half a million times already!!!
Here’s to REALLY good timing, to Gino Mari at The Country Club studios for being a genius and pushing me to try new things, and to Miley’s camp at RCA Records / Sony Music Entertainment for being so cool to us.
Hello, mainstream. Nice to meet you.
For those of you who may have caught Miley Cyrus performing “We Can’t Stop” tonight on Saturday Night Live and thought “Hey, that sounds awfully familiar” well…you were right! It sounds familiar because it was the arrangement written and released by Gino Mari and yours truly.
The hi-fiving continues…

Thanks, Miley! So many “Holy Shit!” moments lately! Is this real life???
It’s been a couple of weeks since I released my cover of “We Can’t Stop” and shit has been crazy ever since (in a good way). The video has over 40,000 views as of this moment (exactly 2 weeks after it was uploaded) but every time I check that number grows, and it’s not just on the Miley cover – It’s ALL of my videos from over the years. Additionally, I suddenly have over 65,000 Twitter followers and over 13,000 Facebook fans, so…thank you Hannah Montana! Everything rules so hard right now.
The single is now available worldwide in the iTunes Music Store as well as Amazon and everywhere else music is sold online, courtesy of RCA Records / Sony Entertainment Music (Miley’s label!) Click HERE to get yours.
Good times, right??!
Thanks for all the love, friends. I can feel it!
Today will forever be known as the day New York Magazine called me “dreamy” on the internet. At least…that’s how I’m going to remember it.

“We Can’t Stop With These ‘We Can’t Stop’ Covers – And Why Should We? Arguably the track that would have been 2013′s Song of Summer were it not for “Blurred Lines,” Miley Cyrus’s “We Can’t Stop” has managed to linger far beyond the whole twerking thing that initially captured popular attention. How do we know this? Aside from being stuck in our heads since its release and being played at every summer wedding we went to, the song has also produced several very good covers. Doo-wop ones, reggae ones, and ones that really get into the heart of the matter. Neon Hitch’s brass-filled reggae cover, Logan Lynn’s dreamy, guitar-heavy version, Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox’s doo-wop version and Bastille’s incredible cover, which mashes up “We Can’t Stop” with Miley’s father Billy Ray’s “Achy Breaky Heart” to create a narrative of a rebellious child and her concerned father.”
Los Angeles entertainment & pop culture website SugarBang.com has featured my “We Can’t Stop” cover today on their site.
Check it out HERE.

“Portland based musician Logan Lynn has released a great cover of “We Can’t Stop” from Miley Cyrus. Produced by Gino Mari, who was also responsible for producing Lynn’s 2012 album ‘TRAMP STAMPS AND BIRTHMARKS’ which we raved about, the cover is completely different from the original. When I first heard this cover, my first thought was, if The O.C. was still on air, this would have been a perfect fit. I really liked the stripped down and raw rendition of the song. Also being sung by a proud and openly gay singer, I felt that the lyrics hit on a deeper level of openess and acceptance. Here’s what Logan had to say about the song and Miley’s VMAs performance: I thought what Miley did on the VMAs was hilarious. I mean…Robin Thicke is a misogynistic pig, but that’s not Miley’s fault. She’s just young and awkward and having fun. I would have totally Twerked on him and everyone else in my way at her age. Going nuts and telling authority figures to go screw themselves is part of growing up. Also, where do I get one of those giant foam fingers she had for that performance? Is that a sports thing?
Yeah, we agree. Ok, now onto the song! Oh did we tell you that it’s also available as a free download? Oh Logan, you’re such giver.”
