My undying love for Austin’s drag-punk-terror powerhouse Christeene is no secret. It takes a lot to shock me, but every time I find myself in the presence of this magical creature, she manages to take me there (and, more often than not, way beyond there).
This past year she also won the heart of Boy George, who, after watching her tear up the stage across the pond, tweeted, “What a fucking awesome hip hop, Beyonce, Evil Dead, queercore, unapologetic, sick show…KILL FOR A TICKET!”
The brainchild of performance artist and musician Paul Soileau, Christeene Vale is a self-described “human pissoire of raw unabashed sexuality; a gender-blending, booty-pounding, perversion of punk fully equipped with an arsenal of ferocious music intertwined with raw moments of strained intimacy and fiery stank” — which pretty well sums it up.

“Sweet Ophelia: An Interview with Musician Zella Day”
If you aren’t already listening to Zella Day, now is the moment to do yourself a favor and make things right in your world by putting on headphones and diving in. You can thank me later.
Zella’s debut self-titled EP has just been released, and she is receiving all kinds of love from critics and listeners alike — and it’s no wonder. Her EP is nothing short of magical, and in addition to being one of Spotify’s Top 10 Rising Stars to Watch, her new single, Hypnotic, just spent time as the iTunes Single of the Week.
Zella is heading out on tour this month, and I caught up with her this week to chat about her music, this whirlwind year she’s been having, and what the west coast has in store with her live performances just around the corner. If you have the chance to Read the rest of this entry »

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…

#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.”
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!
