Score one for the piano man.

The latest work from prolific and mercurial singer-songwriter Logan Lynn — the Portland-based writer, media personality and activist — comes in the way of “My Movie Star,” a 12 1/2-minute featurette soundtracked by three songs from Lynn’s forthcoming album. Co-produced by the songwriter’s champion, actor/comedian/radio host Jay Mohr, it tells the sweet story of an underdog lounge performer who might finally get his due. Read the rest of this entry »

Paste Magazine Feature: Logan Lynn and Jay Mohr Collaborating with 80s Pop Icon Tiffany, The Dandy Warhols, Jarryd James and Others on New Album, “My Movie Star”

From Paste Magazine:

Portland, Oregon-based musician and producer Logan Lynn has recently completed work on a new record, titled My Movie Star, produced by actor/comedian Jay Mohr (Saturday Night Live, Jerry Maguire, Mohr Stories) and due out in 2018.

Today Lynn and Mohr announced that 80s pop icon Tiffany (“I Think We’re Alone Now”) has signed onto the project and will be collaborating with Lynn. The entire album is a collaboration with T-Pain muse GLASYS and features just Logan Lynn and a grand piano.

Breaking from his usual process, Logan wrote 19 new songs for My Movie Star by himself on the Steinway piano in his living room, then narrowed the tracklist down to 10 for the release. Unlike any of his previous work over the past 20 years, all of these tracks began with Lynn streaming his initial writing sessions live for his followers on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube from his loft in Portland, Oregon.
He then took those Steinway Sessions live recordings offline and sent countless clips to co-Producer Jay Mohr for feedback and direction. This back-and-forth process — which mainly consisted of Jay telling Logan to quiet down and pushing him to be braver and more exposed — went on for most of 2016 while Lynn was on the road promoting his last release, ADIEU

From there, Logan invited Portland-based piano genius (and T-Pain collaborator) GLASYS to come on board to build out the key parts and a few months later they locked themselves in The Hallowed Halls with Justin Phelps (Amanda PalmerDresden DollsDead Kennedys) and Mike Blackburn (The Wild WarScars on 45Dungen) until My Movie Star was complete. Lynn credits Jay Mohr, who is also a writer on 2 of the songs, for inspiring the album as a whole.

Logan Lynn and Jay Mohr are currently shopping the album to record labels, but My Movie Star will ultimately be released as a 2-disc set alongside an album of all the songs reimagined by The Dandy Warhols, Tiffany, Jarryd James, Rian Lewis, The Upsidedown, DoublePlusGood, Stose and many more of Logan’s favorite bands, artists and musical heroes. The release will be supported by a short film of the same name, 3 new music videos, as well as a double header tour with Logan Lynn alongside Jay Mohr and GLASYS in the works.
