LOGAN LYNN INTERVIEW ON GREENLAND LIVE!!!

Logan Lynn

Interview with: Logan Lynn
Interview By: The Realist from GreenlandLive.net

Logan Lynn is a singer-songwriter with a background in the dance music scene as well as pop and rock and roll. ‘It’s hard to pinpoint what it is that I do and how exactly I go there.’ After slew a of mildly successful bands Logan went solo in 1998 and put out his first record called ‘GLEE’ in 2000. ‘The music was hard for the industry to categorize back then, so I have been lumped into a bunch of different categories (or NO category) ever since; ‘Emotronic’,’Crybaby Techno’,’Indie Electropop’…I figure people can call it whatever they like, as long as they are listening to my music.’

Logan hated his name growing up, but ‘it’s pretty enjoyable now because Logan Lynn just sounds like a stars name!’ People always assume that Logan Lynn is a band name, or a stage name, but really he’s just a solo act who has been really lucky to work with kick ass DJs and Producers since the start of his career in the 90’s. Logan grew up listening to and was influenced by artists like THE INNOCENCE MISSION, SAM PHILLIPS, THE SUNDAYS, TORI AMOS, LIZ PHAIR…and Logan is still listening to the same folks today; he really likes a lot of what is happening in music right now in the ladies world…REGINA SPEKTOR, LESLIE FEIST, EMILY HAINES, KATE NASH… “It’s good stuff. I’m, like…WAY inspired.”

As long as his music can keep growing in an honest direction and he can keep his finger on the pulse of what’s going on in his head as well as on the dance floor, he sees himself being in a really good place. Logan music is inspired by finding joy through sadness…a need to connect with like-minded individuals, “Different things drive it at different times…but it tends to revolve around my insecurities and struggles about being human.”

Logan’s upcoming record is titled ‘From Pillar to Post’,which, when boiled down, means ‘to run amuck’, he believes it is the most honest he’s ever been a part of musically, so he’s just into it. He is currently working with Producer Carlos Cortes from Portland DJ Collective ‘Assemble the Empire’ and he is collaborating with a TON of other musicians on this record, whereas in the past it has been mostly Logan, his Casio SK-1 and a shitload of red wine!

Logan is one of the most diverse and upcoming stars of the indie music scene many have never heard and I will let him tell you about a defining moment in his career thus far, “I opened for THE PRESETS,BOB MOULD and MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT at the FOLSOM STREET FAIR in San Francisco for over 400,000 people…Leather Daddies, actually…it was monumental. Things have really snowballed from there. It’s been great to actually find an audience for my weirdness…I wasn’t expecting the response I’ve gotten, but I’m eating it up. It rules!”

GreenlandLive.net would like to THANK Logan Lynn for taking the time to chat with The Realist from GreenlandLive.net!
