Logan Lynn’s “My Movie Star” Featured and Reviewed in March 2019 Issue of OutSmart Magazine

So fun to be featured in OutSmart Magazine alongside John Grant, Troye Sivan, Calum Scott, morgxn, Corey TuT and others in Houston’s “Queers For Your Ears” issue, out now!

❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

From OutSmart Magazine (March 2019 Issue)

“Nine albums into his recording career, Logan Lynn’s My Movie Star is easily his most ambitious project to date. The oversized package consists of the 10-song album on the first disc and a second disc of remixes, as well as other artists covering a few songs from My Movie Star. With the exception of the title cut, the songs, co-produced by Lynn and Jay Mohr (yes, that Jay Mohr!), were co-written by Lynn and piano sensation Glasys. In other words, this album is a new and unexpected direction for Lynn, who is perhaps best known for his electronic music stylings. Among the cover versions on the second disc, the rendition of “Big City Now” by Tiffany (yes, that Tiffany!), is a must.”

The Release Week Reviews Are In…

My new record My Movie Star has been out for exactly one week today and I’m so touched by the response so far.

Releasing an album with no beats (and ultimately nothing to hide my vocals/lyrics/feelings behind — something I’ve been doing to my songs for exactly 20 years) has been equal parts terrifying and gratifying.

It took me months to feel comfortable with anyone hearing me this way, and there have been times during the process (and this week) where I have felt that same discomfort…but by the time we go on tour in April, I plan to be able to sing these songs in front of all of you without bursting into tears. Or maybe I’ll just stand there on stage and cry into the microphone like I used to. Time will tell!

Listen and buy My Movie Star on Bandcamp, iTunes , Amazon, Google Play, CD Baby and everywhere else music is streamed and sold.

From A Journal of Musical Things: (4/26/18)

Thursday timesuck: A short musical film featuring actor/comedian Jay Mohr

“Jay Mohr is best known as an actor, comedian and radio host as well as a podcaster. He’s teamed up musician Logan Lynn to create this short film called My Movie Star, which takes us through the fakery and crap that comes with being famous in Hollywood.

This project will also come with a double album this fall, which will include a collaboration with the Dandy Warhols. Give it a watch.”

Jay Mohr & Logan Lynn On “My Movie Star,” Portland and More

If you are a fan of comedian Jay Mohr’s podcast Mohr Stories, then you ought to be very aware of Portland, Oregon-based musician Logan Lynn. If not a Mohrrior, then you may know Logan Lynn from his prolific solo career — he had landed a record deal via The Dandy Warhols — or as the founder of the Keep Oregon Well campaign. Although Mohr is primarily known for being funny, he has an ear for music and decided to showcase that as a producer for Lynn on My Movie Star.

Uncharacteristic of the times, My Movie Star is not just an album. Rather, it is a multi-media double album paired with a Mohr-produced film, as done in partnership with Lynn and filmmaker Kevin Forrest of Portland Film Works. The musical release was done in collaboration with T-Pain muse GLASYS — who T-Pain is rumored to have discovered via Reddit — and features a mix of Lynn originals, remixes and covers. GLASYS and Mohr aside, musical guests on My Movie Star include the aforementioned Dandy Warhols, Jarryd James, Rian Lewis, and Tiffany. Yes, that Tiffany.

I had the pleasure of doing Q&A with both Mohr — who recently appeared on the Fox hit The Mick — and Lynn, and the results were very entertaining. More on Lynn can be found at www.loganlynnmusic.com, while Mohr can be visited online at www.jaymohr.com.

 

 

Thanks for chatting with us about the upcoming release of My Movie Star. How did this record come about?

Logan Lynn: Well, this year marks 20 years since my first album was released and I have been in a process of getting down to the essence of what I’m actually trying to do, in life and in music, ever since. When Jay and I met, I had just finished making my last album, Adieu, and was getting ready to release it. He was one of the first people to ever hear those songs and gave me the most thoughtful, tender, honest feedback. He also wrote one of the first reviews for that record and I think the seed was planted there. I remember feeling like someone had finally really seen and heard me and what I was doing with my songs…or, at least, was trying to do.

Jay Mohr: Tough question for me personally, as I can’t speak for Logan’s motivation or mindset. However, while listening to Adieu, during the song “Break Me Down,” the line “Love me and I’ll kill it with you in time” hit me between the eyes. I thought, “There! There’s the real guy!” I felt like Read the rest of this entry »

Watch ‘My Movie Star’ from Portland’s Logan Lynn

Premiering today on Northwest Music Scene is a brilliant three-song short film titled “My Movie Star” by prolific Portland musician Logan Lynn. 

The twelve and half minute film includes three new previously unreleased songs from Lynn’s forthcoming album, My Movie Star. The clip features the ivory soaked tunes “Big City Now”, “Like Before” and the title track, “My Movie Star,” and is sure to have Logan Lynn fans drooling as they wait for the release to drop. The film and the album were produced by Jay Mohr (Saturday Night Live, “Jerry Maguire”, FOX’s “The Mick”) along with Lynn, in partnership with filmmaker Kevin Forrest of Portland Film Works, and is a taste of what’s to come when the album is released.

Mohr and Lynn joined forces with piano god and T-Pain muse GLASYS to create the multi-media double album, accompanying remixes and covers record, and the featurette by the same name. The record also features collaborations with 80’s pop icon Tiffany (“I Think We’re Alone Now”), Jarryd James, Rian Lewis, The Dandy Warhols and more, and is due out later this year.

Logan Lynn’s ‘ADIEU’ Named “Vinyl of the Week” and Reviewed by Forestpunk This Week

Logan Lynn OH LUCIFER Video Still (2017)

My new record ADIEU is “Vinyl of the Week” over at Forestpunk this week! Check out their killer review HERE, or keep reading below.

From Forestpunk: (1/28/2017)

Vinyl Of The Week: Logan Lynn – Adieu Review
A synthy Indie Pop “jazz hands mental crisis” from Portland‘s Logan Lynn on Adieu, Lynn’s eighth LP.

Both the record sleeve and the LP decals for Adieu feature a super cute crimson Pomeranian against a striking, cheery chartreuse backdrop. A closer examination reveals the pet being fed with blood from a slit wrist. It’s an apt entry point for Logan Lynn’s jaunty, musical theater-informed song cycle on breakups, mental health, suicidal thoughts, and recovery. Self help never sounded so fun!

Taken at the surface level, Adieu would simply be another peppy, upbeat synthpop record – albeit a very good one – with sharp, tight arrangements and eloquent lyrics. Diving into the lyric sheet (thoughtfully included with the 2xLP) cracks the shiny veneer, revealing an unexpected darkness, as Lynn peels off his skin, to share his shredded nerves and modern-day anxieties, delving into the seamy, sleazy side of life, while sounding like a Threepenny Opera.

Lynn and longtime collaborator Gino Mari broke the mold on Lynn’s traditional methodology, with Lynn writing all the vocals and lyrics acapella, then bringing them into the studio for further embellishment, both synthetic and organic. Classic piano pop – a la Ben FoldsHarry NilssonRandy Newman – meet lo-fi synths and canned beats, as heard on album opener double header “I Like It All The Time” followed by “Go There Where You Want To Be Loved” – the catchiest, most tuneful take on abandonment you’re likely to hear this month.

The melodicism and catchy arrangements – like the toppling piano chords and pots-and-pans percussion of “Go There” – are a perfect microcosm of what makes this album so exceptional, so unique, so palatable. Lynn laces the abyss with a wheelbarrow full of sugary Indie Pop. Read the rest of this entry »

Insite Atlanta Entertainment Magazine Names Logan Lynn’s ADIEU One of the “Top 5 Albums of 2016”

Thanks to Insite Atlanta Entertainment Magazine for naming my new record ADIEU one of the “Top 5 Albums of 2016”! Click HERE to check it out, or keep reading below:

From Insite Atlanta Entertainment Magazine: (January 2017 Issue)

“Adieu is quite possibly Logan Lynn’s best album yet, as each song here builds on the next for an impressively cohesive set, ending in the brilliantly wry ‘Oh, Lucifer’. Despite a mix of up tempo indie pop and more introspective piano tracks they fit together beautifully. Lynn continues to impress eight records into his career.” Read the rest of this entry »

Thanks, New York! xoxo

From BestofWNY.com: (1/17/2017)

“Logan Lynn – Adieu – Portland, Oregon based musician, artist, producer, activist and television personality Logan Lynn has released his 8th album tilted Adieu a fifteen song cycle that deals with Lynn’s struggles through addiction, mental health problems, depression, relationship upheavals and the sudden death of his constant companion his beloved Pomeranian. Producer Gino Mari helps craft Lynn’s snippets and jumbles of sounds, lyrics, melodies and more that had been collected on Lynn’s phone and other media devices for Adieu into a cohesive story. Lynn has always been open about his mental health struggles and the cathartic medium his music and songs have been to his road to recovery. Delivered over two slabs of delicious red vinyl the sound is a mash of synth pop and alternative singer songwriter delivered with an open nakedness demanded of the material. Check out the tracks “Go There When You Want To Be Loved”, “Can You Get Me Off?”, the dirge like “I Am Like A Dog Now”, the heavy riff of “The One”, the thumper “Break Me Down” and “We Will Overcome’. A couple of other standout tracks include the title cut “Adieu” and “Oh, Lucifer” Lynn’s middle finger kiss off to the fundamentalist cult he escaped from as a youth.

Actor & Comedian Jay Mohr Pens Heartfelt Review of Logan Lynn’s Forthcoming Double Album “ADIEU.”, Releasing September 23rd

Jay Mohr Review - Logan Lynn ADIEU (2016)

by Jay Mohr, 7/20/2016

Album: ADIEU.
Artist: Logan Lynn
Score: A+

Logan Lynn’s ADIEU. is a victory for the broken bones and bruised hearts that support our heavy souls.  Impossibly, yet beautifully, ADIEU. makes no claims to anything other than a simple truth: Life is awful, until it’s not.

From the first sentence on the first track (I like it All The Time) Logan Lynn plants a flag of newfound, possibly tenuous independence, singing “Some like it rough, I like it all the time.”  The puzzle pieces that come into view as the album progresses reveal that “it” could be anything from love, pain, pleasure, criticism, praise or friendship.

Logan Lynn by Ray Gordon (2016) - 5ADIEU. is an enormous accomplishment in its ability to keep listeners guessing and re-guessing who Logan Lynn is, and where in this galaxy he comes from. In each track, the truth is always there, a scavenger hunt of feelings with constant payoffs — sometimes hidden on the surface, beneath the surface and so far below cold dark waters that you haven’t even noticed you’ve been dragged under and into his life.  After all, this is, an album about life; a life of suffering; a life of love lost; a life of love found; a life of confusion; a life identified as having value and reclaimed.

Logan’s lyrics are unequaled. They are his and his alone. To cover a Logan Lynn song would be identity theft. A heist. Grand larceny. Break me Down (the best song on the album) is so honest and truthful that with just one pass through the lyrics you feel like an intruder. A spy. A fly on a wet wall about to drop into a broken hearted lap and ruin what remains of what was once an incredible party.  The lyric “Tell me you love me and I’ll kill it with you in time” is such a powerful admission from a co-conspirator; both parties knowing full well their love cannot last, but begging for acknowledgement of what was once the greatest, most fulfilling, shared experience.

I advise you to walk blindly into this album and just sit still. Lynn does all the work for you. It’s his life’s work and it has taken him a few lifetimes to get here. Logan is a brave, brave artist. Read the rest of this entry »
