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)

More information can be found on Keep Oregon Well’s website here.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  Musician and Mental Health Advocate Logan Lynn Awarded 2017 “Excellence in Artistic Expression” Award from The National Council on Behavioral Health

Logan Lynn 2017 Awards of Excellence Honoree

The National Council for Behavioral Health announced today that they will be honoring Portland musician, filmmaker, TV personality and mental health advocate Logan Lynn with the 2017 “Excellence in Artistic Expression” Award at this year’s national behavioral healthcare conference, taking place in Seattle, Washington on April 4th.

Logan Lynn is being recognized for his efforts in music, TV, film and advocacy.  In addition to being a successful musician who uses his platform to explore issues of recovery and resilience, Logan is the Founder of the Keep Oregon Well campaign and social movement to fight the stigma of mental illness and end discrimination.  Keep Oregon Well is a partnership between Logan Lynn and Trillium Family Services (Oregon’s largest provider of mental and behavioral healthcare for children and families), Alpha Media, iHeartMedia, KGW-TV/NBC and an entire army of celebrity talent.

Logan released his 8th studio album ADIEU on September 23rd, 2016. The record explored issues of mental health, addiction recovery, grief, loss, resilience and Lynn’s own lifelong battle with overcoming persistent suicidal ideation.  ADIEU 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.

In January of 2017 Logan released a documentary film titled “Lead With Love”, about his controversial Inter-Community Dialogue Project with the conservative evangelical Mars Hill Church.  He will star in Last Meal, a new horror-comedy TV series from Two Penguins Productions and the writers of “Search Party” on TBS, this spring.

Logan Lynn Performing at Mo Wave Festival in Seattle (April 2014) at Chop Suey

Well, that was fun. Thanks to everyone who came out to our showcase this past Sunday at the 2014 Mo-Wave Festival in Seattle! At one point during the show, I looked out and saw Christeene, Justin Bond, Carletta Sue Kay and the boys from Night Cadet in the audience — which was really special.

I adored everyone I got to know this weekend and I look forward to seeing you all again soon! Thank you again to Mo-Wave organizers Jodi Ecklund, Markus Wilson and Seth Garrison for having us perform. Chop Suey recorded the audio and my drummer AC filmed our set, so there will be live clips sometime soon, which I will share. Here are some of the photo highlights to tide you over:
