Veteran Portland Songwriter Logan Lynn Releases His Most Uncomfortable Album Yet
by Dom Sinacola

“Logan Lynn knows Old Portland.

Lynn came to Portland in 1996, fleeing a fundamentalist Christian upbringing. (“I grew up in a cult, frankly,” he says.) With a bedroom demo of wounded electro-pop disguising soul-baring subject matter behind disco glitz, he befriended many of the mid-’90s stalwarts of Portland music scene, like Elliott Smith and the Dandy Warhols, eventually signing to the latter’s Beat the World Records, a Caroline/EMI subsidiary.

But that doesn’t mean he misses it.

“I’m not pro-gentrification. I’d love us to have a better plan for the people being left behind or displaced,” he says.

But.

“There was a part of that scene that was mostly about getting high and not having jobs. I don’t know if I feel super-protective of that part of it. You can’t wish for something that’s not based in reality to last forever.”

Lynn has had his own issues. He overdosed in 2008, and though he’s been clean since, he says the pressures of being signed to a major label made it more difficult to navigate sobriety. That same year, midtour, he “freaked out” and quit. “I walked away and sent a press release to everyone about my career suicide, in the middle of the night,” he says. “I went and worked at a community center the next day. I needed to reclaim my humanity on some level.” Read the rest of this entry »

“Logan Lynn’s ADIEU is a victory for the broken bones and bruised hearts that support our heavy souls. Impossibly, yet beautifully, ADIEU makes no claims to anything other than a simple truth: Life is awful, until it’s not. For anyone that has ever felt disconnected, unheard, under-appreciated or unrequited, this is the album to hold tightly to your chest. A+”

– Jay Mohr (Comedian, Actor, Radio Host and Best Selling Author)

Logan Lynn’s New Record “ADIEU” Reviewed in September Issue of Blurt Magazine

day-4

Thanks to Blurt Magazine for reviewing my new record ADIEU. in this month’s issue. 4 stars!!! 🙂

From Blurt Magazine: (September 2016)

Logan Lynn - Adieu - Front Cover - Artwork by Ian OphelanLogan Lynn: ADIEU.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

The Upshot: Thanks to smart lyrics, a strong mix of synths and sharp guitars and a knack for mixing in some truly inventive elements, Lynn moves well past what could have easily just been standard catchy pop songs.

BY JOHN B. MOORE

The last time Logan Lynn put new music out into the world it was a charming Miley Cyrus cover about three years ago. His latest album, Adieu, is aligned much closer to classic ‘90s college rock – everyone from Liz Phair to the Dandy Warhols – than to ex-Disney stars turned Molly-diggin’ pop divas, though played through a classic theatrical rock filter.

As Lynn described the sound recently, “there are moments on this record that feel really jaunty and bratty and as we were recording them I tried to keep this mental image of myself with a dancing cane, clicking my heels in the rain and moving through these very serious themes with a spring in my step, front and center. The whole thing is very jazz hands mental health crisis, frankly.”

So, yeah, pretty apt.

At 15 tracks, Lynn manages to Read the rest of this entry »
