From Portland Radio Project:

Recording artist Logan Lynn and producer Gino Mari dropped by the show this week to talk about their influences, songwriting process and new album. A large part of the PDX Spotlight playlist was from Logan’s latest release titled Adieu, but we also listened to Gino and Logan’s influences including Mitski, Whitey, Sam Phillips, The Dandy Warhols, and more. We talked about their production process, touring together, and the maturation of artists. Our listeners heard Logan open up about his mental health and history with addiction. Logan also shared a lot of great information about Keep Oregon Well and his approach to mental health self care. A common theme through the night was the importance of being congruent with your art and being honest with yourself.

A huge thank you to Logan Lynn and Gino Mari for spending the evening with me and sharing their stories! Please enjoy the podcast!

Logan Lynn – ‘Kill for Love’: An Interview With Ruth Radelet of Chromatics

(Originally Published on The Huffington Post on 10/26/2012)

On the heels of performing at the Chanel spring/summer 2013 fashion show in Paris and the Fashion Moments 2012 party in Shanghai, and with yet another tour in Europe, the Pitchfork Music Festival in Paris, the Harvest Festival in Australia, Art Basel in Miami and a few other upcoming dates in South America, indie-electronic darlings (and Portland, Oregon hometown heroes) Chromatics are smack dab in the midst of an international meteoric rise.

With their latest release, Kill for Love, Chromatics frontwoman, Ruth Radelet, has once again hypnotized fans, critics and even Karl Lagerfeld with her voice, stage presence and stunning beauty. I had a chance to catch up with my dear, talented friend Ruth this past week. Our conversation is below.

Watch Chromatics “Kill for Love” Video:

Ruth, thanks for chatting with me today. For some of our readers who are just hearing your band Chromatics now, how would you describe your sound?
This is always a tough question for me, since our songs range from almost fully electronic numbers to guitar-oriented post punk and 10-minute long cinematic experimentations. If I had to sum it up in a phrase I might say something like “melancholy electronic pop.”

It’s been an eventful last couple of years for you guys. Was there a specific moment where you realized something really big was happening?
We all really believed in Kill for Love, but, of course, you never know for sure how the public will receive something. We had some great feedback from the press but none of that seems real until you Read the rest of this entry »

Logan Lynn Interviewed by Sugarbang This Week on Life, Love, Working with Marina and The Diamonds, and More!

I was interviewed by the folks over at Sugarbang.com this week. We chatted about tons of stuff. Check it out on their site HERE, or just keep reading below…

From Sugarbang, 7/26/2012:

We’re so excited to bring you guys an exclusive interview with SugarBanger regular, Logan Lynn! His current single (and dance pop anthem) “Turn Me Out” was featured on our HUMP DAY MIX a few weeks back and now he has an accompanying music video that came out a few days ago! The Portland-based electro pop singer/songwriter is incredibly geniune and frank and it all oozes out in his work. His candor responses about his music, inspiration and what it’s like to be an out artist was quite refreshing to hear. So without further adieu, let’s dive in!

Sugarbang: Tell us about your single “Turn Me Out” and the concept for the music video.

Logan Lynn: The song is about longing for your partner to want you, about the complexities of intimacy between two people who are very close…ultimately it’s about my wanting to get fucked and be loved by the man I love. As for the video, the concept all gets credited to Director Curtis Speer. It was his photography which led me to working with him on this video. He has a very particular point of view which I think is great. There’s something so haunting about his photographs.

Sugarbang: Your album Tramp Stamps & Birthmarks is dropping on 12/4/12. What can we expect from the album? Will there be more epic dance anthems similar to “Turn Me Out”?

Logan Lynn: Yeah, this one is a high energy pop banger start to finish, it seems. My writing partner is David Appaloosa, who is also in a band called THE HUGS, and he is this 22 year old partyboy who has been able to really tap into my inner 22 year old party boy in the studio.
