Still From Logan Lynn Radio Silent Music Video by Runn Shayo (2014)

Remember last summer when I toured the U.S. with Big Dipper and Conquistador? Well, a filmmaker named Runn Shayo was on tour with us, too — and he filmed all the best parts, which we have compiled into a sweaty, sexy, not-safe-for-work, romp of a music video for my new single “Radio Silent”!

Logan Lynn by Dandy Jon (2014)

As many of you already know, we have a new music video coming out June 10th, but in the meantime, an artist named Dandy Jon has created a series of drawings inspired by the old A cappella spiritual cover I released on my last record and he has turned those drawings into a video, which we just released.

Behold: “Nobody Knows The Trouble I’ve Seen”

Behind The Scenes of Logan Lynn's New Video - Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks - 2013 Hippodrome Media - Logan Lynn Music

It’s Halloween tomorrow and my new video “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” premiers tonight at Midnight, but you can watch it here first! This is the title cut from my record by the same name and is the 4th and final single from that album. The song is about power and control and being shackled to my experience in the world, so we tried to portray that by way of this psycho-sexual short film.

I shot the video in Portland with Hippodrome Films and I am really happy with how it turned out. Thanks to the folks at Hippodrome for taking such good care of me (and my song).

“Logan Lynn Covers Miley Cyrus’ ‘We Can’t Stop’ (VIDEO)”

Portland-based openly gay musician Logan Lynn is known for his dance and electronic music, but lately his sound has taken a different direction with his latest single, “Everything You Touch Turns To Gold“.

Now he’s released a free download of his cover of Miley Cyrus’ hit single, “We Can’t Stop” that continues his foray into a bold new direction.

Lynn has been releasing music since 2000. He gained national recognition when his music and videos were played on Logo TV, and while he may be known for his electro-emo music, on his website, he speaks about his new sound and breaking away from the music for which he’s historically been known:

‘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.’

So if Cyrus’ song has grown a bit stale after hearing it played everywhere for the past few months, then check out Lynn’s version to get a “warmer,” different take on this mammoth hit.”

Watch The Exclusive World Premier Of Logan Lynn’s Hologram Video Today At Out Magazine!

My new video Hologram premiered today over at Out Magazine! Click HERE to check it out. The video was directed by Adrian Sotomayor and Aaron Bear and there are loads of Portland and Seattle peeps featured throughout.

The video is exclusive with Out this first week and will go live elsewhere on Friday!

From Out Magazine: (1/23/2013)

“Following Portland’s gay singer-songwriter Logan Lynn’s 2010 critically acclaimed record, I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday, and his 2009 award-winning album, From Pillar To Post, comes Lynn’s latest work, Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks. His latest single “Hologram” off the new album is a wonderfully mellow, soft electro-pop number about questioning one’s action after being unnoticed and realizing it’s caused you to be hollow.

The video helps set the tone of the song as we see a gay couple wake up together, with one of the two men not returning the affection of the other. We follow the man’s morning, as he continues to go unnoticed by his lover. Throughout his day he phases into a hologram due to other’s neglect or negativity around him—including being broken up with via text! However, it all changes for the poor sap when he arrives to a party, where Lynn is finally present in the video singing.

Released in December, Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks comes after Lynn’s extended break from music, where he worked full time for LGBT rights at Portland’s Q Center—which also received proceeds from his 2010 album. In the summer when Lynn released the first track off the new album, “Turn Me Out,” he told The Huffington Post that he returned to music after meeting a man that changed his life, and he just started writing again.

Lynn said: “Almost as soon as I rejected the chase and stress of [the industry], opportunities started falling out of the sky and into my lap. Ultimately, I just couldn’t pass up working with the people I am working with right now.” Lynn also noted that he would continue his activism work even if his schedule will get complicated.”

Logan Lynn: Stop-Motion Tolerance: An Interview With ParaNorman Director Chris Butler

(Originally Published on Moviefone and The Huffington Post on 11/19/2012)

With Laika Studios releasing ParaNorman on 3D Blu-ray combo pack, Blu-ray combo pack, DVD, On Demand and digital download on Nov. 27, I decided to catch up with my old friend (and ParaNorman creator/director) Chris Butler. We chatted about his dream project coming to life, how this movie of his is changing the world, and why everyone needs to watch it at least twice.

Logan: Hey, Chris. Thanks so much for chatting with me today. For you, what is ParaNorman about?

Chris: I think mainly it’s about tolerance. It’s about how judging people is often misjudging people. The original seed of the idea was something as simple as “how cool would it be to make a stop-mo-animated zombie movie for kids?” and I think that had more to do with growing up on a gleeful diet of Ray Harryhausen creature features and cheesy horror movies. But then beyond that I started thinking that all the best zombie movies are really social commentary — zombies as metaphors. I had the lofty ambition of trying to do that on my movie, only making it a social commentary for kids. I think by far the hardest issue I faced as a child was “fitting in.” I was different, and when you’re a kid, “different” is considered “bad.” The world isn’t a tolerant place for people who don’t conform to the accepted norm. When I embraced that as the heart of the movie, the story really clicked. I wanted to juxtapose the fictional horror of the walking dead with the very real horror of what it is to be 11 years old and different.

Logan: Oh, God. Seriously. How long had this project been in the works?

Chris: I started writing it about 15 or 16 years ago. I kept returning to it over the years. There was something about it that just wouldn’t die, which I guess for a zombie movie is pretty appropriate.

Logan: Aww, it’s your baby!

Chris: This truly is my baby, from initial idea through first draft of the script to the finished movie. It’s a very personal project to me.

Logan: Clearly. I was also struck by the craft of it all. In a world of mass production and CGI, to see something so labor-intensive come to life is a real treat. Was it hard to convince people to come on board with your way of doing things instead of taking an easier animation route?

Chris: We’re an odd bunch in the stop-motion world. We live, breathe and fight for our medium. We love what we do, and for that reason this type of animation will always be around and will always attract amazingly talented people. I think there was a degree of passion among the crew for this project in particular that I don’t think I’ve seen before. Obviously, I’m biased, but I genuinely think people wanted to give this their all.

It was always conceived as stop-motion, right from day one. As soon as I saw the skeleton fight in Jason and the Argonauts as a kid, I knew that stop-motion was the best way to bring the dead back to life!

Logan: It’s really special, Chris. And clearly, Casey Affleck’s ginger character is based on me. If one of the characters in the film were based on you and your experience in the world, who would it be? Read the rest of this entry »

Logan Lynn – ‘Kill for Love': An Interview With Ruth Radelet of Chromatics

(Originally Published on The Huffington Post on 10/26/2012)

On the heels of performing at the Chanel spring/summer 2013 fashion show in Paris and the Fashion Moments 2012 party in Shanghai, and with yet another tour in Europe, the Pitchfork Music Festival in Paris, the Harvest Festival in Australia, Art Basel in Miami and a few other upcoming dates in South America, indie-electronic darlings (and Portland, Oregon hometown heroes) Chromatics are smack dab in the midst of an international meteoric rise.

With their latest release, Kill for Love, Chromatics frontwoman, Ruth Radelet, has once again hypnotized fans, critics and even Karl Lagerfeld with her voice, stage presence and stunning beauty. I had a chance to catch up with my dear, talented friend Ruth this past week. Our conversation is below.

Watch Chromatics “Kill for Love” Video:

Ruth, thanks for chatting with me today. For some of our readers who are just hearing your band Chromatics now, how would you describe your sound?
This is always a tough question for me, since our songs range from almost fully electronic numbers to guitar-oriented post punk and 10-minute long cinematic experimentations. If I had to sum it up in a phrase I might say something like “melancholy electronic pop.”


It’s been an eventful last couple of years for you guys. Was there a specific moment where you realized something really big was happening?
We all really believed in Kill for Love, but, of course, you never know for sure how the public will receive something. We had some great feedback from the press but none of that seems real until you Read the rest of this entry »

Watch: Father Tiger’s Instagram Masterpiece (VIDEO)

(Originally Published on The Huffington Post on 8/20/2012)

I was recently introduced to Los Angeles-based electropop outfit Father Tiger by my friend/collaborator Jeffrey McHale, who directed both my “Bottom Your Way to the Top” video in 2009 and my “Quickly as We Pass” video in 2011, and who has now directed Father Tiger’s debut video, “Shell,” which just premiered this past week.

The video was made entirely with the photo app Instagram, and it is a real piece of genius. Jeff worked with artist John Parot (from Bravo’s Work of Art: The Search for the Next Great Artist), who also did the illustrations for our 2009 collaboration.

Watch Father Tiger‘s video for “Shell” below and be amazed:
