Styrofoam X Logan Lynn Name Your Trouble (2019)

LOGAN LYNN

Logan Lynn is a songwriter, producer, filmmaker, television personality and activist who Billboard writes “has made a career out of crafting catchy, disorderly songs that almost all include big beats, fun melodies and cheeky lyrics”.

He has been producing and releasing music for the past two decades, and was signed to Caroline Records / EMI Records from 2006 until 2010. His career was managed and championed by fellow Portland rockers The Dandy Warhols, who originally signed Lynn to their label, Beat The World Records. He has also released music on Greyday Records, Mohr Media, and his own label imprint, Logan Lynn Music.

Lynn is the former host of NewNowNext Music on MTV’s Logo Network and has appeared in a number of televised commercial spots for the channel. His videos have been featured on MTV, VH1, Logo, Spike TV and countless web-based platforms since 2000, and his music has appeared in international advertising campaigns by CoverGirl Cosmetics, Oscar de la Renta, Nicole Miller, Volkswagen and other major brands.

Logan released his 8th studio album ADIEU in 2016, which was named one of the Top 10 Albums of 2016 by Blurt Magazine and Disarm Magazine, as well as one of the “Top 5 Albums of 2016” by Insite Magazine.

His 9th studio album, titled My Movie Star, was released in 2018 as a 2-disc set, alongside an album of all the songs reimagined by The Dandy Warhols, Tiffany (“I Think We’re Alone Now”), Jarryd James, Rian Lewis (Gorillaz, Chromeo), DoublePlusGood, Stose and many more of Logan’s favorite bands, artists and musical heroes. The album was a collaboration with T-Pain muse GLASYS and featured just Lynn and a grand piano. My Movie Star was produced by Logan Lynn and Jay Mohr (Saturday Night Live, Jerry Maguire, Mohr Stories). Self-Titled Magazine called it “his most intimate work yet…so spare and spellbinding it threatens to stop time entirely.”

In 2017 Lynn released a documentary film titled Lead With Love, about his controversial Inter-Community Dialogue Project with the conservative evangelical Mars Hill Megachurch. Later that year he starred in Last Meal, a horror-comedy TV series from Two Penguins Productions and the writers of Search Party on TBS.

Logan received the prestigious 2017 Award of Excellence from the National Council for Behavioral Health for his advocacy work in music, TV, film and community, and for founding the Keep Oregon Well campaign to fight the stigma of mental illness. In 2018 Kink FM named him one of The Portland 50, honoring the people who “dreamt, built and championed the innovation, growth and uniqueness of Portland”.

In 2018 Alternative Rockers Portugal. The Man partnered with Logan Lynn on infusing advocacy into their summer tourengaging the crowds around music and mental health at each sold-out show. The following year it was announced that Lynn had officially joined the Portugal. The Man team in the role of PTM Foundation Director to help build and launch the band’s charitable foundation.

In 2019 Belgian Producer and Glitch Pop Godfather Styrofoam and Logan Lynn released a brand new track titled Name Your Trouble. The duo wrote the song together for the series finale of EastSiders TV on Netflix, one of five songs featuring Logan Lynn on the EastSiders Season 4 Soundtrack.

RECENT PRESS

“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

“In ‘Nothing’s Ever Wrong’, as well as others such as ‘Big City Now’ and ‘Underground’, Lynn weaves a poignant theme of vulnerability and the desire for approval.”
– MIRP

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

“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

“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.”
– 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

“A victory for the broken bones and bruised hearts that support our heavy souls. 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)

“The melodicism and catchy arrangements – like the toppling piano chords – are a perfect microcosm of what makes this album so exceptional, so unique, so palatable. Lynn laces the abyss with a wheelbarrow full of sugary Indie Pop.”
– Forestpunk (Vinyl of the Week)

“Defiant, insistent & powerful work…a thoughtful self-interrogation that pulls light out of darkness and healing out of grief, addiction and pain with subtlety, nuance, humor, and lively melodies.”
– Disarm Magazine

“Logan writes songs that are ultimately catchy and friendly, and they make you want to immediately hear them again and again. We like everything about this album. Great songs, great vocals, super intelligent lyrics, and arrangements that are a perfect fit for each track. This guy has really hit the bull’s eye here for fans of underground pop.”
– Babysue.com (LMNOP)

“After years of translating emotional hardship into musical coherence, Logan Lynn’s grief has opened the door to creating something beautiful.”
– Vortex Music Magazine

“Veteran Portland songwriter Logan Lynn releases a document in vulnerability and his most uncomfortable album yet…Openness and honesty guides his new album, which is more bare than anything Lynn has released before. It’s also less buried beneath technology, more indebted to Liz Phair, The Innocence Mission and The Sundays.”
– Willamette Week

“Quite possibly Logan Lynn’s best album yet, as each song here builds on the next for an impressively cohesive set…Lynn continues to impress.”
– Insite Magazine
