Thanks to everyone who has been watching, liking, commenting on and sharing my new video, “We Will Overcome”, since its release! It has over 10,000 views and still counting — and we’re just a week in.
Thanks again to Vortex Music Magazine for premiering the video on their site. You guys are awesome!
Watch the video here:
My new video premiered this morning on the Vortex Music Magazine site. It is an homage to my family and community, and is about surviving together in the face of grief and loss.
In light of the past few years of losing some of our own, it has been clear that our love — and their love for us — continues to hold my family together, long after they have gone.
Thank you to my uncle David for capturing tons of old family movies decades ago. It is such a special thing to have living images of my grandparents, of my beloved family (Pat, Scott, Steve, Debby, Colleen, Mildred, Loy, Teresa, Gene and others) to build this story around.
…and for those of you in my community who have ever felt oppressed by the world, I hope you are also enveloped by hope, and that love is winning in your life.

Here’s a still from the video to tide you over…
In advance of a highly publicized festival showcase in Austin, Texas alongside Austra, Trust, Big Freedia and Mykki Blanco at Stargayzer Festival on Sunday, September 14th, Portland indie pop musician (and Dandy Warhols protégé) Logan Lynn is releasing the first two songs from his upcoming new record next week on 9.9.2014. The full album is slated for release in 2015.
A departure from the electronic sound Lynn has built his career around, “We Will Overcome” finds Logan Lynn and his band in a more organic space, pulling on influences that range from Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie to Fun and Elliott Smith.
Lynn debuted this new sound last year when he released a critically-acclaimed cover of Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop”, which New York Magazine called “Dreamy” and “Guitar-heavy” and The Huffington Post described as “warm” and “bolder than the original”. Since the release of “We Can’t Stop” Read the rest of this entry »
As most of you already know, my band boys and I have been hard at work on a new record since last year and, while the full album will not be out until sometime next year, we are releasing two brand new songs as a sneak peek of what’s to come next month!

I’m thrilled to be working with Los Angeles-based artist Ian O’Phelan on the cover art this round. Check out more from Ian on his website HERE.

I’m one of the cover stories in the July issue of HIM Magazine, which just came out yesterday. We talk about everything from music and love, to growing up in a non-affirming Christian church, to surviving the violence of my youth and the near-fatal addiction (and triumph over said addiction) which followed.

“From Preacher’s Kid to Pop Artist: An Interview with Gay Musician Logan Lynn”
By Dominique Robbins

Logan Lynn is an American singer, songwriter, and producer. His music pushes the boundaries of what we call “pop” and it challenges us to look inside ourselves and find that person within. His latest album “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” give us a little glimpse of who Logan is as an artist and as a human being. With songs like “Turn Me Out” which focuses on his sexual side and even his cover of “Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen” which gives us a glimpse of his singing background growing up in church, it is safe to say that Logan is well rounded and well brought up.
