The Release Week Reviews Are In…

My new record My Movie Star has been out for exactly one week today and I’m so touched by the response so far.

Releasing an album with no beats (and ultimately nothing to hide my vocals/lyrics/feelings behind — something I’ve been doing to my songs for exactly 20 years) has been equal parts terrifying and gratifying.

It took me months to feel comfortable with anyone hearing me this way, and there have been times during the process (and this week) where I have felt that same discomfort…but by the time we go on tour in April, I plan to be able to sing these songs in front of all of you without bursting into tears. Or maybe I’ll just stand there on stage and cry into the microphone like I used to. Time will tell!

Listen and buy My Movie Star on Bandcamp, iTunes , Amazon, Google Play, CD Baby and everywhere else music is streamed and sold.

Check out a bit of what people have been saying below!

“For nearly 20 years, dance-pop artist Logan Lynn has made a career out of crafting catchy, disorderly songs that almost all include big beats, fun melodies and cheeky lyrics. But on his latest album, My Movie Star, Lynn has traded in his signature sound for a more somber, melancholy tone — a dynamic new album consisting of Lynn’s new piano-driven songs and filled with remixes and covers by other industry greats.”
– Billboard

 

“His most intimate work yet…so spare and spellbinding it threatens to stop time entirely. Or at the very least, force you to put that mobile device down and actually listen.”
– Self-Titled Magazine

 

“Singer/songwriter Logan Lynn is back and musing on life, love, and the pitfalls of Hollywood stardom in his new album, ‘My Movie Star’, released on October 12th. Produced by actor/comedian Jay Mohr, the album features collaborations with The Dandy Warhols, Glasys, and DoublePlusGood, as well as 80s pop phenom Tiffany, Australian pop star Jarryd James, Rian lewis and many more. This toned-down album takes Lynn in an entirely new direction from his dance-centric previous work. Mohr, who Lynn credits as inspiration for the album, has truly put himself out there for the production of the album – not only writing two of the songs, but also by stirring up huge media buzz by baring it all in an outdoor shower in the video for ‘Nothing’s Ever Wrong’. In that song, as well as others such as ‘Big City Now’ and ‘Underground’, Lynn weaves a poignant theme of vulnerability and the desire for approval.”

“The multimedia ‘My Movie Star’, much like its creator, is many different things at once — part covers/remix record and part short film. Despite all the extras that accompany the LP and its interesting backstory, what makes ‘My Movie Star’ special is Lynn’s stripped-down, intimate approach to these very personal songs.”
– MAGNET Magazine

 

“Gone are the days where artistry is synonymous with leading the conversations on the issues that we as a society have been pushing out of our minds. After years of struggles which include childhood trauma, depression, suicide attempts, and drug abuse, Logan Lynn finds himself in a position to do just that: to talk about those problems that most people don’t have the time or energy to care about.”
– The Spill Magazine

 

“The product of those sessions, where his raw thoughts and emotions are suddenly transformed into music, has powered Lynn’s successful career. As a musician, writer and filmmaker, he uses his dynamic platform as a therapeutic means of self-care and mental health awareness.”
– National Council for Behavioral Health

 

“Lynn’s shifted gears with his newest effort, which finds him going in a different direction emotionally compared to his last albums.”
– Instinct Magazine

 

“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). Tiffany (’I Think We’re Alone Now”) signed onto the project and the entire album is a collaboration with T-Pain muse Glasys and features just Logan Lynn and a grand piano.”
– Paste Magazine

 

”If you are a fan of comedian Jay Mohr’s podcast Mohr Stories, then you ought to be very aware of Portland, Oregon-based musician Logan Lynn. If not a Mohrrior, then you may know Lynn from his prolific solo career. Uncharacteristic of the times, ‘My Movie Star’ is not just an album. Rather, it is a multi-media double album paired with a Mohr-produced film, and features a mix of Lynn originals, remixes and covers.“
– The Hype Magazine

 

“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’. There’s good reason that Jay Mohr called Lynn’s music ‘a victory for the broken bones and bruised hearts that support our heavy souls’. Lynn’s open-hearted narratives have enjoyed wide embrace.”
