PRESS AND REVIEWS

“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

 

“Logan Lynn is a modern day Gene Kelly.”
– Innocent Words Magazine

 

“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.”
– MIRP

 

“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

 

“My Movie Star is fantastic. One of my favorite tracks — I can’t stop playing this — You’re Mine Because I Love You. Beautiful melody, great pop sensibilities; This could be a top pop song, but it speaks to me even more on piano. I love the simplicity.”
– Gregory Day, KPTV Fox 12, The Portland Podcast

 

“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

 

”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.”
– BuzzBands.LA

 

“Logan Lynn fills the vacant space in music that goes beyond drugs, sex and rock and roll to what happens next, when the wounded and victimized awaken to the potential of their own lives.”
– Sheila Hamilton (Emmy Award Winning Journalist, 101.9 Kink FM Morning Show Host, and Author)

 

“Somehow, a kid who grew up in a fundamentalist Christian church where even musical instruments were too secular to have around has developed into an innovative adult musician with a dirty-honest edge…blunt, raunchy, and fun.”
– Advocate Magazine
