For Your Consideration…

Well, this is fun. 🏆

Today the Recording Academy / GRAMMYs opened up first-round voting for the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards and I’ve got two songs on the ballot!

My collaboration with Styrofoam, “Name Your Trouble”, written for the series finale of Emmy Award-winning series EastSiders on Netflix, is up for “Best Song Written For Visual Media”.

Also, the live version of my song “Underground” with Glasys that Banana Stand Records released earlier this year is up for “Best American Roots Performance”.

If you are a fellow voting member of the Recording Academy, thank you in advance for your consideration!

Launch Week Press Tour, Part 3

I am several outfits into this global press tour (from home) and still have several outfits to go.

Thank you to Adweek, Out Magazine, Bear World Magazine, Instinct Magazine, Edge Media Network, Yahoo Finance, and everyone else who took the time to chat with me this week about the launch of DotGay and what it means to me. I’m all talked out! 🏳️‍🌈

Celsi Celebration Fundraiser for PTM Foundation Postponed Due To Coronavirus

Well, this is a bummer. The March 21st fundraiser event for PTM Foundation with Portugal. The Man, Zia McCabe from The Dandy Warhols, Tommy Graven, the Multnomah County Democrats and others is being postponed due to the Coronavirus outbreak and Oregon’s ban on public events of more than 250 people.

This party will still be happening — just not right now. Stay tuned for details on the reschedule…and wash your hands! ✊

Thank You, Recording Academy!

Thanks to everyone who voted for My Movie Star in the 3 categories it was up for at the GRAMMYs!

We (predictably) lost the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album nomination to Barbra Streisand, John Legend, Elvis Costello, Michael Bublé, and Andrea Bocelli, but holy hell it was fun to see our names on that ballot.

I also cannot stress enough how much I loved working with (and then #Grammy campaigning with!!!!) my childhood pop hero Tiffany. Her beautiful rendition of Big City Now from My Movie Star ultimately lost the Best Pop Solo Performance nom to Beyoncé, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Lizzo and Taylor Swift, but I’m #TeamTiff FOREVER.

Working across genres on My Movie Star was really exciting, and while Scott Simpson’s cover of Underground was knocked out of the Best Country Solo Performance race by Willie Nelson, Blake Shelton, Ashley McBryde, Tyler Childers, and Tanya Tucker in round 2, infiltrating the Country ballot was a trip.

Congrats, everybody! I’ll see you at the big show in LA on January 26th. 🤘🏆

ACTUAL FUCKING NAZIS HAVE INVADED PORTLAND

ACTUAL FUCKING NAZIS HAVE INVADED PORTLAND.

As you watch, participate, or cover today’s protests, it’s important to remember that ANTIFA is not an organization, it’s an idea.

It literally just means ANTI-FASCISM.

So, like, within anti-fascism there are a million different tactics folks can (and should) be taking — but we should absolutely ALL be ANTI-FASCIST.

If we aren’t ANTIFA, we are, by definition, PRO-FASCISM.

There’s no middle ground here.

Specific tactics aside, at this point, you’re either with the Nazis or you are against them.

It’s 2019.

DECIDE.

Logan Lynn Cancels 2019 “My Movie Star” Tour Ahead of March 1st Announcement – Full Statement Here

Those of you who have been following my #VanLife adventure since my professional pivot into the wild last year may have been scratching your head about why I seem to have not really gone on any sort of adventure at all.

Some of you have reached out to see what happened to our fall tour plans, or why I haven’t come to visit, even recreationally. Some of you just think I’m being a lazy rich kid who can’t be bothered (and have told me so). But those of you who know me in real life have picked up on the fact that not everything has gone as planned out here, expressing concern that I seem to be parked and isolating in remote corners of the Pacific NW.

The reality is, #VanLife is fucked.

This narrative doesn’t match a lot of my photo shoots and public posts because I’ve remained committed to finding beauty in nature and making the best of it, while holding onto the dream I first set out to realize and working to see it all through. It’s not miserable because I have somehow changed my mind about wanting to tour. I haven’t. I very much still want to promote this record and sing these special songs for (and with) all of you. And it’s not because I don’t like the small space or the sometimes-rugged complications of full-timing in an RV. I’m game for all of that anticipated (and un-anticipated) adventure stuff. That is not what’s happening here, either. And oh my god it’s not because I’m lazy or rich. Ugh. I wish! Unfortunately, neither of those things are true anymore (though they definitely have been before, so I get the perception). And it’s not even that I’m depressed or sketched out about the constant online bullying and death threats, which would normally be a major contender after so much time out here alone and so many thousands of homophobic trolls piling on with the release of this new record.

Sadly, what’s actually happening is much more heartbreaking (and potentially sinister).

I will start by officially announcing that we have to cancel our 2019 tour plans that were included in all of the “My Movie Star” album press over the past year. We were supposed to announce the bands and cities March 1st for shows beginning in spring, but instead, it’s canceled. All of it.  I’ve been dodging questions and playing along, but no more.

Logan Lynn and Portugal. The Man Featured on SetList.FM

I had such a great time with these rad humans this summer! Thanks for the shout-out, setlist.fm — And thank you to Portugal. The Man, forever and ever.

Check us out over on SetList HERE, or keep reading for the transcript below.

From SetList.FM: (9/27/18)

Portugal. The Man headlined a two-night stand at McMenamins Edgefield in Portland in August. Despite the thrill of a “hometown show” (the band is based in Portland) and a sold out show, their main focus of the night was on mental health.

Partnering with fellow Portland-based musician Logan Lynn, Portugal. The Man welcomed “Keep Oregon Well” to their performance, a company designed to reduce stigma surrounding mental and behavioral health. Volunteers donning “Keep Oregon Well” shirts roamed around the venue, and trucks with the same print were parked outside.

Beautiful stuff, guys.  🙂
