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.

Miley Cyrus Performs Logan Lynn and Gino Mari’s Arrangement of “We Can’t Stop” on Saturday Night Live
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???Tweet

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.
Check out the article on NY Mag’s Vulture blog HERE or by clicking the current issue cover below.
From New York Magazine, Vulture: (9/18/2013)
“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.”Tweet

Los Angeles entertainment & pop culture website SugarBang.com has featured my “We Can’t Stop” cover today on their site.
Check it out HERE.
From SugarBang: (9/19/2013)
“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.”

On the heels of my summer tour of the U.S. with Big Dipper and Conquistador, I have just released a cover of We Can’t Stop (by Miley Cyrus) that is going to blow your mind. Click HERE to listen and download the single free on Soundcloud or HERE to do the same on Bandcamp. The official lyric video is also streaming on YouTube HERE. It technically doesn’t come out until Tuesday (9/17) but…you know…we can’t stop.
Produced by Gino Mari, who also produced my 2012 release Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks, this song features all organic instrumentation unlike anything else I’ve recorded to date. Why Miley, you ask? Well…I thought what Miley did on the VMAs was hilarious. I mean…Robin Thicke is a disgusting misogynistic pig who actively promotes rape culture, 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 or what?!
You may notice that this cover (and my latest single, released 8/13) are a bit of a departure from the electronics I’ve become synonymous with over the course of the past 15 years. These are just a glimpse into the new direction I’m headed in sonically. I have to keep changing things up or I get bored. This round I’ve put down the dance music a little and Gino has been playing all kinds of instruments instead. It’s been turning out really warm and special so far as a result. I figured this cold, dead pop song was the perfect thing to try and bring to life. Don’t get me wrong – I actually really like Miley’s version, too…but it’s not particularly warm.

LOGAN LYNN TAKING AN EXTENDED BREAK FROM THE MUSIC INDUSTRY TO COMMIT CAREER SUICIDE – FULL STORY HERE.
Hey everybody. As I near the 10 year anniversary of my debut record, “GLEE” (which was originally released in October of 2000) I’ve been thinking a lot about all the years from there to here. I have come to some conclusions not only about the journey I’ve been on since then musically and in my personal life, but also the journey I intend to be on moving forward with both.
One thing that is painfully clear to me and everyone who knows me in real life is that I AM MISERABLE. I have been for some time. I’m sick of being broke, mismanaged, overworked, screwed over by the folks who are supposed to be looking out for me…you know, all the hits. Ever since I overcame my paralyzing stage fright, playing shows has been great and I’ve had a wonderful time on tour this Summer with The Gentry but the abnormalities that come along with being a working musician in the digital era without the proper, traditional support of a label are too much for me to just keep absorbing. I can’t be gone all the time like this. I don’t want to spend my life on the road with strangers in bars and hotel rooms. It’s not healthy. I’m homesick for a home that does not exist because I have been too busy to create it for myself, no other reason. I need something real in my life. I can no longer pretend that things are going to suddenly feel better like magic when I know that they are not. These things I’m putting all my energy into obtaining are not making me happy. They are not ever going to because fame and money and attention is not what I want anymore. It’s time that I take control of my own happiness, something I have been dreading and avoiding for years now because of the terrible consequences and pressures attached to doing so. I am finally brave enough and there is just no stopping me. My humanity is in need of repair. These are someone else’s dreams I’m killing myself to fulfill. It is time for me to chase the light to happiness, not acceptance by the masses.
I am going to take some time completely off far away from the business of being myself professionally, then we’ll see where life has led me. These final shows next month with The Gentry in Salem, on August 6th & in Portland on the 20th are going to be the last shows I play for at least a year or two so I hope you can make it. They are going to be very special nights. Please, PLEASE come to the final show at Mississippi Studios on Friday, August 20th and wish me farewell on my new journey.
I don’t know what I am going to be doing from here but I fulfilled my contract with Beat The World (so I know what I’m not going to be doing, which is a very clear start…or finish, as it were). I am Free, an unsigned independent artist once again, not bound to any contracts, people or associations. I find myself in a moment where I can do one of two things; and I gotta choose the peaceful road, you guys. Think I’m gonna go help people for awhile, do something that actually matters—that isn’t so self-serving and based in phony, superficial publicity opportunities. I am leaving the door open for me to change my mind later on so I’m not saying I’m done forever by any means but it honestly does feel that way at the moment. I just finished that new record with Bryan Cecil and have been leaking the demos all week, freeing myself of the rules and regulations that come with being a brand instead of just some stoner dude who makes funny sounding synthpop songs about death and darkness on his keyboard. If another label comes along and picks me up to release it I’d Read the rest of this entry »Tweet
