LONG VERSION:

Hi again, everybody! It’s been a little over a week since I announced my plans to step away from the stage for the time being and the reaction from all of you has been really incredible. Thanks so much for all the emails and messages in the days since. It’s been reassuring to be able to so clearly see that I have not been wrong about all of you this whole time…that you totally ARE as wonderful as I like to think about you all being…that sometimes strangers care about you more than people you’ve known for years. Thank you for hearing where I’m at enough to wish me well on my journey. I’ve collected so much love from you through the past decade of my being in your ears. I’m not sure what I’ve done to deserve it but I feel so lucky to be connected with this sea of like-minded, sensitive, caring individuals all scattered across the globe…

So WHAT’S NEXT??? I think I may have figured that part out. You know how I was saying I needed to do something that matters for a little while and use my powers for good instead of just to be a famous singing douchebag who complains about how horrible his life is or whatever? Well, I actually meant it and have been exploring what that looks like in the immediate future. I’ve recently been involved with Portland’s Q Center (Oregon’s ONLY LGBTQ Community Center) and have been feeling personally drawn to that place for months. Ever since I stepped foot in the door and met Kendall Clawson (the center’s Executive Director) it’s been clear that she is on a mission to make something really big happen for not just the various queer communities in Oregon but the nation as well. Big things are happening out of that place and I want to be on the frontline of the change. I honestly don’t give a shit about pop music at the moment but I do care passionately about human rights and making things safe for the gay community at large, the community I Read the rest of this entry »

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 »

WATCH VIDEO OF LOGAN LYNN & THE GENTRY PERFORMING LIVE AT ROCKIT ROOM ON TOUR IN SAN FRANCISCO HERE!

A few seriously mismanaged, mind-blowing venue/booking-related disasters aside, this was a really good night. Maybe my favorite group of wild dancing people from the whole tour so far and DEFINITELY my favorite bands to share the stage with; both The Gentry and The Hugs owned that room! There are a couple of angles I could work with this story but I have chosen to completely omit the really dumb, soul-crushing part about the dickholes running promotions at Rockit Room and only tell you about the wonderful part…for now.

(Insert evil laughter here.)

So with that being said, the story goes like this: I love you, San Francisco. Special thanks to Andrew Rodriguez who had read on Facebook earlier that week that my computer had died and proceeded to come up to me at the merch booth after dancing in the front row the whole night at our show and gave me a computer bag with a Mac Powerbook and all sorts of goodies inside. Like…out of the kindness of his heart!!! Can you believe that? He seriously deserves some sort of award. Also, serious props to Alex Jon Earl for being the most dedicated fanboy in the entire universe, following us all over the place this Summer, from Washington to California!!! I’m really glad I got the chance to meet you guys in person this Summer. Thanks for being prime examples of why I got into this whole musical mess in the first place.

🙂

Now watch some clips and pretend you are the tripod, sitting on the right side of the stage, so close you could punch any of us in the dick if you wanted to. Oh, and come see one of the remaining dates on our Summer Tour! Still up: Salem, Oregon at Flipside Nightclub for Salem Pride on August 6th & Portland, Oregon at Mississippi Studios on August 20th.

THE CALIFORNIA LEG OF MY SUMMER TOUR IS IN THE BAG! BIG THANKS TO THE GENTRY & THE HUGS FOR COMING ALONG WITH!

I’ve actually been home from our trip since last Friday but it’s taken me 5 days to decompress. That was wild, wild stuff people. ha ha ha — Thanks so much to The Gentry and The Hugs for making the long journey to California with me and putting on amazing shows all week.

We shot video at both the San Francisco and Sacramento shows which I’ll post as soon as I get them from AC. It was really fun to see all of our California friends. I forgot how beautiful everyone is in San Francisco! Also, those kids aren’t “too cool” to dance. It’s fucking awesome. We’ll be back soon to do it again!!!

Check out all the photos from our California trip (as well as shots from the shows) on Myspace HERE and on Facebook HERE.

RONTOM’S 4TH OF JULY PARTY WITH 1776, LOGAN LYNN & THE GENTRY, + THE HUGS WAS SO FUN. WILD TIMES IN PUDDLETOWN!!!

Whoa, Portland. You made me enjoy the 4th of July more than I think I have since becoming an adult. (Whatever that even means). For those of you who weren’t with us at Rontom’s this past Sunday night, here is a bit of what happened:

After a set by Snow Bud & The Flower People, The Hugs (pictured above) performed all their hits. Those boys are awesome. I’m bringing them to California on tour with me next week so you can see for yourselves.

Here’s the video of me and The Gentry playing “Bottom Your Way To The Top” while Portland gets down:

Then, as you can see from the photo above, I played a set with The Gentry. We got the kids dancing at Rontom’s which I heard from some of their staff is not something that just happens all the time. Ummm….Yeah. It was fucking rad.

Watch “Come Home” below. I LOVE THE DANCING LADIES IN THE FRONT ROW!!!

The dancing continued after our set with the 1776 working the crowd into some sort of 1960’s rock and roll frenzy by the time they were through. It was a really good night. Thanks to 1776 for inviting us to be on the bill. We had a great time.

I totally love playing shows at Rontom’s!

Here’s a clip of us performing “Bleed Him Out” in the loudest way.
