Logan Lynn Break Me Down 2014

We spent 6 weeks in the top 10 earlier this year on Colombian pop radio, and I did a bunch of Colombian press and interviews as a result. Now Escena Indie en Colombia has picked my song “Break Me Down” as #2 on their Top 5 Songs of 2014 list.

Thanks to Escena Indie en Colombia for including us on this list, and thank you to everyone who kept us on the radio this year! We are coming for you after the record comes out, Colombia. Stay tuned…

From Escena Indie en Colombia:

#2: Break Me Down – Logan Lynn

“Este año tuve la oportunidad de conocer la propuesta de un artista que lleva haciendo música en el bajo mundo de los Estados Unidos desde hace más de 15 años. Dicha experiencia lo ha llevado a retratar en sus canciones todas esas vivencias que abordan las cuestiones humanas esenciales.”

Update: New Logan Lynn Record Coming 2015

Logan Lynn in Brooklyn (2014)

Hey darlings,

My band boys and I have been on a break post-summer tour and I’ve just been writing songs for my new record and throwing myself into mental & behavioral healthcare advocacy full-time. It’s been great to have some much-needed down time, but we are back in the studio next month (January) to dive headfirst into finishing the album.

I hope you all have a killer holiday season. If you are buying gifts for your people, click HERE to stuff your stockings with me and my nonsense. I do love when you give me away…

I’ll see you after the new year, babies!

Friends, I Am Heartbroken About Jian Ghomeshi…

Logan Lynn and Jian Ghomeshi in Portland (2014)

Friends,

I am heartbroken about Jian.

I hate that photos from my stories about him are being used in these awful reports about his hurting people, and as a survivor of sexual violence myself, and a lifelong advocate for the abused, I am embarrassed that I have played a part in bringing this man to your attention over the past couple of years by way of The Huffington Post, Queer Voices, and my own blog and networks.

The truth is, Jian Ghomeshi has been very supportive of me in my career and an outspoken advocate for my community. I have not known him to be anything but a gentle, thoughtful person who I have connected deeply with around human rights issues, music, mental health, identity, and the strangeness of fame. I have looked up to him, but it is clear to me now that my picture of Jian has been incomplete, at best.

The past week has been painful. I have felt sad for Jian, sad for the world, and sad that I seem to have, once again, been drawn in by a man who is not who he seemed to be…but most of all, I am sad for the people Jian has hurt. I know what this means for them, the impact it will have on their lives, how it will affect their families and relationships; and I wish healing and peace for all involved.

I do not believe Jian is connected to the reality of what he has done, but that does not make this any less real. Just because a person doesn’t report abuse to the police, does not mean that abuse did not occur.

It is important that we believe people when they say they have been harmed. This type of violence can be extremely difficult to speak, and even more difficult to live. As of this afternoon, police reports have been filed and an official investigation has begun. This is a good thing.

For those of you who have seen Jian and I together in Portland or in photos, interacting on Twitter, and chatting in interviews, please know that Read the rest of this entry »

Make It Work: An Interview With Project Runway Season 13 Finalist (and Fan Favorite) Emily Payne

Emily Payne Interview with Logan Lynn (2014) Project Runway Season 13

(Originally Published on The Huffington Post on 10/29/2014)

With the Project Runway Season 13 reunion show airing this week, I thought now would be a perfect time to catch up with my darling friend (and Season 13 finalist), Emily Payne, about her time as a contestant on the show this year and what life is like now that it’s over.

Payne is a San Francisco-based designer and full-blown visionary. Overseeing two fashion houses of her own creation — Leathertongue and Devon Rose — and balancing motherhood and newfound mainstream television fame, Emily is riding the Project Runway rollercoaster with a level of grace fans of the show have not seen before. If you caught any of this season, you have no doubt already fallen head-over-heels in love with this sweet, talented creature.

Watch Emily Payne’s pre-season designer home visit video, then read our chat below – and be sure to tune into Lifetime Thursday for the reunion. The trailer promises fireworks!


Logan Lynn: Hey Emily! Thanks for chatting with me today. Anyone who has been following your run on this 13th season of Project Runway knows that you took your final bow as a contestant on the episode just before the finale. How does it feel to finally be able to talk about it after having to keep so painfully quiet for so long? Read the rest of this entry »

Feminism, Ebola and Donuts: Lena Dunham and Carrie Brownstein Make Like Portland (VIDEO)

Carrie Brownstein and Lena Dunham in Portland (2014) by Logan Lynn

(Originally Published on The Huffington Post on 10/22/2014)

This past Sunday night in Portland, GIRLS star and Not That Kind Of Girl author Lena Dunham completed her ten city book tour, “Not That Kind Of Tour“, with an intimate conversation with Portlandia star, Sleater-Kinney rock icon and Portland royalty Carrie Brownstein, live on stage at the Newmark Theatre.

Sponsored by Powell’s Books, the event sold out in just six hours — and it’s no wonder. Both of these smart, funny, talented women are at the top of their game right now, each with hit TV shows, and each having just finished books; Carrie’s book, as revealed by Lena during the conversation, is en route.

Local Portland comedian JoAnn Schinderle opened the evening with a hilarious set. Dunham called her “fucking hilarious” when she took the stage, and then proceeded to read two essays from her new book, which is currently enjoying the #1 position on the New York Times Indie Bestsellers List (no big deal).

After talking about her many physical ailments while on tour, asking the audience if we could see her underwear (adding “Not that I care, I just want to know”), Dunham boldly read her strange, brave, beautiful truth to the crowd of (mostly) strangers, eventually inviting Brownstein to join her on stage.

The two are close friends — texting each other frequently in the midst of Read the rest of this entry »
