LOGAN LYNN // NEW MONEY \\ 1.21.22

  

Bull Mountain This Week!

These are the happy faces of 2 ginger creatures who just wrapped an 8 month stint adventuring in the natural world. We’re staying in a rented mansion on stilts in Bull Mountain for the week to cleanse the palate, then I take possession of my new house in Portland one week from today.

Feeling grateful, relieved, excited, and for the first time in ages, really REALLY comfortable.

We’re back, babies! 🖤

#VanLife: Big Finish

As this van life adventure comes to an end on Sunday, after exactly 8 consecutive months of living on the road, I’ve been thinking a lot about this experience, why I decided to do it to begin with, and the comedy of errors that has ensued since the moment we set out on our maiden voyage a hundred years ago.

There are no words for how excited I am to be moving into my beautiful new home in Portland’s West Hills, but right now I’m also just remembering that I did this whole thing for a reason. Smart or not, every action I took, each investment I made, was mine, and on purpose. I did it because even pretty things and money had become meaningless to me — and I realize this part isn’t super relatable, but the let-down of finally having shitloads of money and STILL being miserable is unlike any disappointment I’ve experienced. It hit me in my heart.

I knew I needed to re-transform my life somehow, and the goal of this great outdoor journey was to tour the states and recalibrate. I felt like nature had the answers for me, and while it’s no secret the road here has taken several expensive, unexpected turns, I ultimately AM transformed, and everything matters again, so…I guess it worked.

I’m happy. Good things are happening. See you soon. 🖤

Logan Lynn’s “My Movie Star” Tour Debacle Featured in IndiePulse Music Magazine This Week

The entire “My Movie Star” tour debacle is featured on the homepage of IndiePulse Music Magazine today.

Click HERE to check it out on IndiePulse Music, or keep reading below for the transcript.

From IndiePulse Music Magazine: (2/16/19)

“Portland, Oregon-based musician Logan Lynn, whom anticipated an amazing journey of music and new self-discovery hits major “Pot-Hole” in planning due to unforeseen, or imaginable circumstances and has cancelled his planned 2019 “My Movie Star” North American Tour.

Lynn’s tour saga, which involves an international criminal scandal involving Class B RV Manufacturing giants RoadTrek and Erwin Hymer Group, was published in a statement on the artist’s website Friday, February 15th.

In an additional email sent directly to fans on Friday, Logan Lynn wrote: Read the rest of this entry »

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.

New Interview with Logan Lynn in September Issue of The Spill Magazine

New interview and feature story in this month’s issue of The Spill Magazine out of Toronto, Canada. Check it out online HERE, or keep reading below for the full transcript.

From The Spill Magazine: (September 2018 Issue)

JAY MOHR, GLASYS, AND A STEINWAY PIANO

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.”

While supporting a rock band at the height of their popularity Read the rest of this entry »

Well, Hi There: An Interview With Jian Ghomeshi

Jian Ghomeshi Interview with Logan Lynn - 2014 Queer Voices - Image Courtesy of Q on CBC Radio

(Originally Published on Queer Voices on 4/24/2014)

If you listen to NPR / PRI in the U.S., you already know Jian Ghomeshi as an award-winning broadcaster, writer, musician, producer and host of the multimedia phenomenon known simply as “Q” — or as The Washington Post calls it, “the most popular new arts and culture radio show in America”. If you are Canadian, or at all familiar with Canadian media, pop culture, or the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation), then you know Jian Ghomeshi is a household name in that country — and he is well on his way to becoming one in this country as you read this.

Born in London, England, of Iranian descent, Jian Ghomeshi is smart, talented and handsome — a triple threat with a sharp tongue, unabashedly advocating for the voiceless among us along his journey to the top. He was recently named one of Maclean’s Magazine’s “50 Most Important People In Canada” and one of Read the rest of this entry »
