I’m the featured guest this month on the BLCKSMTH blog‘s December Soundtrack. I helped Michael James Schneider put together the playlist, then we went all over Portland spreading some apocalyptic holiday cheer.
Read the post and listen to the soundtrack HERE + check out some of the photos from our shoot just below.
My new video “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks“, the 1st single we have put out post-Miley boom, has passed the 300,000 views mark in just 3 weeks since its release! I seriously love you all for embracing this very scary piece of dance music horror filth we created. It’s really fun so have so many people dig it!
Huge thanks to Spencer Lee Carroll for writing this song with me, to Gino Mari for Mixing and Producing it, to Robert D’Esposito for being such a creep in the video, to Kevin Forrest for his vision, to Ben Starkey for his mad skills, to Emily Yurek for making everything so beautiful, and to Josh Smith and Kelly Raine for making everything work while we were shooting. I love Hippodrome Films and can’t wait to work with you kids again soon!

Thanks to New York Magazine for featuring our Miley Cyrus cover on their Vulture video page again this week! This song was released 2 months ago today and, while I know it sounds totally weird, it has actually changed my life in the weeks since.
Click HERE to check it out. The video has been watched a half a million times already!!!
Here’s to REALLY good timing, to Gino Mari at The Country Club studios for being a genius and pushing me to try new things, and to Miley’s camp at RCA Records / Sony Music Entertainment for being so cool to us.
Hello, mainstream. Nice to meet you.
Everyone involved in the making of my new video “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” has been freaking over the response so far! We released the single and video one week ago and it has been watched over 72,000 times on YouTube and over 8,000 times on Vimeo – which puts our view count at over 80,000 in just 7 days! Amazing, right?
Thanks for all the love, sweet world!
Watch it on YouTube HERE and on Vimeo HERE now.
Hometown love today from The Portland Mercury, who included my new video “Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks” in this week’s “Video Vriday!” weekly wrap-up! Check it out HERE or keep reading below the video:
From The Portland Mercury: (11/1/2013)
Logan Lynn released his new Halloween-y video this week; ‘Tramps Stamps and Birthmarks’ is a mysterious psychosexual clip made by Hippodrome Films. Lynn recorded the dark-tinged dance track with Spencer Lee Carroll (LackLustre), and Lynn says, “The horror of the video is meant to be a metaphor for the horrors of being trapped in our individual histories.”
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).

The past month has felt like one “Holy Shit!” moment after another, the latest being that my “We Can’t Stop” cover video just passed the 100,000 views mark this evening. Thank you to everyone who has been watching the video and downloading the song since it was released. All of this is happening for me because of YOU.
Big thanks also go out to my Producer/Co-Writer Gino Mari from The Country Club studios for being the creative genius in my passenger seat throughout this process. I love you, man!
