“From Pillar To Post” Turns 10 This Year!

I can’t believe my major label disaster From Pillar To Post turns 10 this year!

Not the greatest time in my life, as anyone who was even remotely tuned in back then will recall, but this record — and the signing that came with it — definitely gave me hope and something to live for while I was in, and then fresh out of the rehab that finally took.

Lots of really great people believed in me right then and gave me so many opportunities to become someone I just ultimately didn’t want to become. Looking back now it feels hard to imagine that person navigating all that he was navigating without going nuts, so I cut him slack for some of the messier parts where he did.

Anyway, thank you to The Dandy Warhols, Logo, Pati DeVries and the team at Devious Planet, the team at NewNowNext, Carlos Cortes, Jeremy Sherrer, cars & trains, Jacob Portrait, Ryan Wines and the Beat The World Records Team, Sidney McCain at Caroline Records, all those goddamn suits at EMI Records, and everybody else who was in my court for that whole ride.

There are too many of you to name, and it’s taken me a full decade to even wrap my head around it all, but I know for sure that I love each and every one of you, and that experience will always be ours.

OLD PORTLAND’S LAST HOORAH! 🖤 LISTEN AND BUY HERE.

LOGAN LYNN TAKING AN EXTENDED BREAK FROM THE MUSIC INDUSTRY TO COMMIT CAREER SUICIDE – FULL STORY HERE.


Hey everybody. As I near the 10 year anniversary of my debut record, “GLEE” (which was originally released in October of 2000) I’ve been thinking a lot about all the years from there to here. I have come to some conclusions not only about the journey I’ve been on since then musically and in my personal life, but also the journey I intend to be on moving forward with both.

One thing that is painfully clear to me and everyone who knows me in real life is that I AM MISERABLE. I have been for some time. I’m sick of being broke, mismanaged, overworked, screwed over by the folks who are supposed to be looking out for me…you know, all the hits. Ever since I overcame my paralyzing stage fright, playing shows has been great and I’ve had a wonderful time on tour this Summer with The Gentry but the abnormalities that come along with being a working musician in the digital era without the proper, traditional support of a label are too much for me to just keep absorbing. I can’t be gone all the time like this. I don’t want to spend my life on the road with strangers in bars and hotel rooms. It’s not healthy. I’m homesick for a home that does not exist because I have been too busy to create it for myself, no other reason. I need something real in my life. I can no longer pretend that things are going to suddenly feel better like magic when I know that they are not. These things I’m putting all my energy into obtaining are not making me happy. They are not ever going to because fame and money and attention is not what I want anymore. It’s time that I take control of my own happiness, something I have been dreading and avoiding for years now because of the terrible consequences and pressures attached to doing so. I am finally brave enough and there is just no stopping me. My humanity is in need of repair. These are someone else’s dreams I’m killing myself to fulfill. It is time for me to chase the light to happiness, not acceptance by the masses.

I am going to take some time completely off far away from the business of being myself professionally, then we’ll see where life has led me. These final shows next month with The Gentry in Salem, on August 6th & in Portland on the 20th are going to be the last shows I play for at least a year or two so I hope you can make it. They are going to be very special nights. Please, PLEASE come to the final show at Mississippi Studios on Friday, August 20th and wish me farewell on my new journey.

I don’t know what I am going to be doing from here but I fulfilled my contract with Beat The World (so I know what I’m not going to be doing, which is a very clear start…or finish, as it were). I am Free, an unsigned independent artist once again, not bound to any contracts, people or associations. I find myself in a moment where I can do one of two things; and I gotta choose the peaceful road, you guys. Think I’m gonna go help people for awhile, do something that actually matters—that isn’t so self-serving and based in phony, superficial publicity opportunities. I am leaving the door open for me to change my mind later on so I’m not saying I’m done forever by any means but it honestly does feel that way at the moment. I just finished that new record with Bryan Cecil and have been leaking the demos all week, freeing myself of the rules and regulations that come with being a brand instead of just some stoner dude who makes funny sounding synthpop songs about death and darkness on his keyboard. If another label comes along and picks me up to release it I’d Read the rest of this entry »

Here’s what they had to say:

From “Mondosonoro” Magazine (2/23/2010)

“Cuenta el propio Logan Lynn que su carrera empezó gracias a entregar una copia de su mixtape “This Is Folk Techno” a la persona adecuada. Deeso hace ya una década, un tiempo excesivamente largo para no haber tenidonoticias de este artista de Portland. Aunque bien mirado, es una suerte haberle descubierto con su tercer largo, “From Pillar To Post”, un epidérmico tratado de electrónica inteligente y distinguidísima, de sonoridades emo en las formas pese a sucontenido. Lynn no es uno más. Sus canciones tienen alma, sus textos hieren ynos hacen tomar consciencia de la complejidad emocional del ser humano, delsome timiento en el sexo y en el amor, de una forma distinta de sentirse queridoo despreciado. Y eso es algo que consigue con buena parte de los mejores cortesdel disco. En “Feed Me To The Wolves” canta “échame a los lobos si cometo unerror/ córtame a trocitos cuando me porte mal”; en “Write It On My Left Arm” selamenta “no me mantengo de pie/ esta habitación se hace cada vez más pequeña/puedes escribirlo en mi corazón/ puedes escribirlo en mi brazo derecho y sialguien me encuentra habré dejado pistas en mi cuerpo”; en “Bleed Him Out” ledice a su pareja “hazme tu esclavo/ tapa mi boca y quémame con cigarrillo shasta que obedezca” y no hace falta apuntar mucho más sobre un tema que titula“Bottom Your Way To The Top”. Tras tres Ep’s de remezclas firmadas por artistascomo Styrofoam o Boys In Static, Lynn acaba de anunciar un nuevo single, unaversión de “The Last High” de The Dandy Warhols (dueños de Beat The World, disco gráfica que edita “From Pillar To Post”

Blow Pony (2010)

See you on the 27th, kids. It’s gonna be CRAZY. I’ll have Portland superstar Jen Folker from “Dahlia” in tow, as well as the boys from Electronic Rock outfit “The Gentry” as my backing band, so…DON’T MISS IT. Oh, and…A quick word of advice: This party is not for everyone, though everyone is welcome. If you aren’t gay, you have to be more than OK with seeing boys kissing boys, girls kissing girls, boys dressed like girls kissing boys, and so on and so forth to attend. There will be much of that going on everywhere you look. It’s $3 before 10:30, $5 after, but SUPER GAY all night.
