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.

A CONVERSATION WITH LOGAN LYNN

In a fast-paced world so focused on efficiency and thin margins of success, it can be easy to brush aside the negative side effects of the modern-day lifestyle. Oftentimes we don’t have the time or energy to do anything more than make ends meet and spend a few precious moments with those who are important to us, even in industries like music that are often associated with a more leisurely lifestyle. 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. When I spoke to Logan, he was in the middle of a short tour with alternative rockers Portugal. The Man in support of the mental health initiative Keep Oregon Well. Logan is brimming with positivity about his chance to participate in the conversation:

“[The tour’s] been really great! You know, [Portugal. The Man] are such great guys to bring me along for the ride and create space in these shows to talk about mental health and reach their fans about stuff that matters, while we’re reaching them with music.”

Singing to a Different Tune: How Logan Lynn Breaks Stigma With Music

Logan Lynn sometimes has unspeakable thoughts.

The versatile artist, whose music career has spanned more than 20 years, will often experience moments when he can’t quite communicate what he’s thinking, how he feels or why he feels it. It’s can be a paralyzing and terrifying conundrum, and one that is far too familiar to the millions of people like him who experience depression.

“My depression feels, at times, so great that I can’t even find words to tell someone how I’m feeling … but my pen usually seems to still work,” said Lynn, who has lived experience managing depression, addiction and suicidal ideation. Read the rest of this entry »

Feature Story on Logan Lynn and Portugal. The Man on Northwest Music Scene this Week!

Thank you to the folks at Northwest Music Scene for the feature story this week on our upcoming tour with Portugal. The Man! Check it out HERE, or keep reading below.

From Northwest Music Scene: (8/1/18)

Portland-based indie rockers Portugal. The Man are teaming up with Keep Oregon Well and its co-founder Logan Lynn to advocate for mental health awareness throughout Oregon.

Lynn, who co-founded the campaign in 2014, agreed that mental health needs to be discussed more openly to help break the stigma surrounding it. “As a suicide survivor myself, I know how important not feeling isolated is,” he said in a statement. “Stigma exists because people have been made to feel like mental and behavioral health challenges are personal character flaws, versus being like any other medical condition. If you break your arm tomorrow, would you feel shame?”

Lynn made clear that in all he does, he has only one end point in mind: “I won’t stop doing this work until every last bit of the shame that prevents people like me from seeking help in the first place, is gone.”

Below is the full list of dates:

Aug. 24th — Portland, Oregon (McMenimans Edgefield)
Aug. 25th — Portland, Oregon (McMenimans Edgefield)
Aug. 30th — Jacksonville, Oregon (Britt Pavilion)
Aug. 31st — Bend, Oregon (Les Schwab Amphitheater)

Portugal. The Man Advocate For Mental Health Awareness At Oregon Tour Stops: Exclusive

Portland-based indie rockers Portugal. The Man have been touring steadily since the release of last year’s Woodstock, which housed the record-breaking hit “Feel It Still.” But they have something special planned for its handful of homecoming shows in Oregon this summer: the band has partnered with public advocacy campaign Keep Oregon Well and its co-founder, musician Logan Lynn, to help raise awareness for mental health.

“Mental Health is personal for our whole band,” PTM frontman John Gourley said in a statement. “As touring musicians, self-care can quickly become make it or break it on the road.” Gourley added that the goal of partnering with Lynn and the Keep Oregon Well street team at their shows is to inspire their fans to make mental healthy a priority, too.

Portugal. The Man

Lynn, who co-founded the campaign in 2014 along with Trillium Group CEO Kim Scott, agreed that mental health needs to be discussed more openly to help break the stigma surrounding it. “As a suicide survivor myself, I know how important not feeling isolated is,” he said in a statement. “Stigma exists because people have been made to feel like mental and behavioral health challenges are personal character flaws, versus being like any other medical condition. If you break your arm tomorrow, would you feel shame?”

Lynn made clear that in all he does, he has only one end point in mind: “I won’t stop doing this work until every last bit of the shame that prevents people like me from seeking help in the first place, is gone.”

Today (July 12), Lynn’s new album is available for pre-order; Portugal. The Man’s Oregon tour dates kick off Aug. 24. View the full list of shows below.
