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

 “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, Radio 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

 “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

 “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
