Feature Story on Logan Lynn’s Life and Career in York News Times This Week

logan-lynn-2016

I went back to my hometown of York, Nebraska a couple of weeks ago while we were on the road promoting the release of my new record #ADIEU and the local paper interviewed me for a story that’s out today.

They interviewed one of my two favorite high school teachers and the man who taught me how to sing, too. It’s lovely.

Thanks, York News-Times!

The story ran on the front page in York as well as in the Grand Island Independent.  Click HERE to read it on the York News Times website or just keep reading below for the full transcript.

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 Interviewed by Glide Magazine This Week

Still 2

From Glide Magazine: “Logan Lynn Premieres Riffy “The One” Off Upcoming LP “Adieu” and Gives Candid Interview”

Logan Lynn’s resume reads like a true Renaissance Man: writer, producer, television personality and activist. Most importantly he is also a survivor of substance abuse and is “staying grateful” to continue contributing to society constructively, while continuing to evolve from his electro-pop and dance foundation musically. He has released seven studio albums, fifteen music videos, four singles, three compilation records, five EP’s and one mixtape since 1998. Videos of Lynn’s singles have been featured on Logo, MTV, VH1 and Spike TV.

With his eighth album Adieu being released in the coming weeks, Logan Lynn is premiering the hard rocking track “The One” that pays tribute to old Portland friends The Dandy Warhols and their landmark Stones’ riff hit ”Bohemian Like You.” Lynn has always had a knack for making danceable rock and pop and with “The One,” he shows that he can now confidently rock out with the same gusto. To kick off the New Year, Glide chatted with Lynn about the new album, his new sound and his many contributions to his musical and creative environments.

Your eighth album Adieu is due for release this year and with it comes a new sound. Can you please share with us what the new sound might be?

Well, I am known historically for being largely electropop or dance. My first record GLEE came out 15 years ago and was very much all about me and my Casio SK-1 being super lo-fi and glitchy…it was anti-pop. Over the years, and now seven albums later, my creative process has morphed. I work with a full band these days, and have been with my collaborator Gino Mari for nearly a decade at this point. We play instruments on my Read the rest of this entry »
