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.

“My Movie Star” Has Been Out For Exactly Three Months…

We are 3 months into the My Movie Star release and it’s clear that people either completely love this weird, quiet piano record and are already mid-process wearing out the vinyl, or they fuckin’ hate it and either refuse to listen or just never made it past song 5 before breaking the vinyl over their knee.

There doesn’t seem to be much in-between this round, both critically and commercially, which I’m good with. Love me or hate me, feature the album or ignore it, these songs are my best work in 20 years, hands down.

I’m so proud of this record, all thanks to everyone who gave everything they had to this project; And to those of you who have bought the album and followed me here, I know we are a long way from those strange dance floors where we first met. The world has changed and so have I. Thank you for still being here. I see you dancing, sweethearts.

The My Movie Star Deluxe Double Disc Edition is out now on vinyl, CD and digital download wherever music is streamed and sold. Pick one up from Bandcamp and I’ll sign it for you, personalize it for a friend, or turn it into a unique piece of hatemail for someone you would like to simply torture with my voice

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.

Portland’s Logan Lynn’s Long-Awaited New Album My Movie Star Now Available

Singer/songwriter Logan Lynn is back and musing on life, love, and the pitfalls of Hollywood stardom in his new album, “My Movie Star,” released on October 12th.

Produced by actor/comedian Jay Mohr, the album features collaborations with The Dandy WarholsGLASYS, and DoublePlusGood, as well as 80s pop phenom Tiffany, Australian pop star Jarryd JamesRian Lewis and many more.

This toned-down album takes Lynn in an entirely new direction from his dance-centric previous work. Lynn wrote the songs for the album on the Steinway piano in his living room, streaming the initial writing sessions live for his social media followers. The original lineup featured 19 new songs; together with Mohr, Lynn pared it down to 10 original songs. The 2-disc double album, recorded at The Hallowed Halls in Portland, Oregon will also feature several collaborative remixes and covers.Mohr, who Lynn credits as inspiration for the album, has truly put himself out there for the production of the album – not only writing two of the songs, but also by stirring up huge media buzz by baring it all in an outdoor shower in the video for “Nothing’s Ever Wrong.” Says Mohr about the song, “Logan Lynn is a brilliant artist. The best in a generation at harnessing raw emotion. On ‘Nothing’s Ever Wrong,” he let’s just enough of them get loose from their harness, the exact amount that will knock you on your ass. 

You don’t realize how stripped down and bare bones the recording is because of its power.  Just Logan and his piano sharing glimpses of his deepest bruises. Beautiful shards of his pain, it’s pretty overwhelming to hear someone sharing what most keep locked away. It’s humbling.”

In that song, as well as others such as “Big City Now” and “Underground,” Lynn weaves a poignant theme of vulnerability and the desire for approval. He intended the album to be about the inner lives of the people he knows and loves. This is a thematic departure from his previous album, ADEIU, which explored the world of mental health and recovery.

As a suicide survivor, Lynn has become a vocal mental health advocate, talking openly about his journey in hopes of giving strength to others and removing the stigma surrounding mental health issues. He’s worked with various mental health initiatives, as well as partnered with other celebrities and artists such as Alice Cooper, Kevin Bacon, and Portugal. The Man to help provide education and outreach for those who need assistance.

Billboard Premieres New Logan Lynn Record Featuring Tiffany, The Dandy Warhols, Jarryd James and More

On Friday Billboard premiered Portland, Oregon-based indie pop musician Logan Lynn’s 9th studio record, My Movie Star alongside a new interview about the project, review of the album, and new music video. Read the whole article here.

The 20 song, 2 disc My Movie Star LP was co-produced by Logan Lynn and actor / comedian Jay Mohr (Saturday Night Live, Jerry Maguire) and features collaborations with 80s pop icon Tiffany (I Think We’re Alone Now), alternative rock gods The Dandy Warhols, Australian neo-soul king Jarryd James and dozens of other bands, artists and producers.

In their review of the new album, Billboard writes “For nearly 20 years, dance-pop artist Logan Lynn has made a career out of crafting catchy, disorderly songs that almost all include big beats, fun melodies and cheeky lyrics. But on his latest album, My Movie Star, Lynn has traded in his signature sound for a more somber, melancholy tone — a dynamic new album consisting of Lynn’s new piano-driven songs and filled with remixes and covers by other industry greats.”

Self-Titled Magazine calls Logan Lynn’s My Movie Star “his most intimate work yet…so spare and spellbinding it threatens to stop time entirely. Or at the very least, force you to put that mobile device down and actually listen.” while Innocent Words Magazine writes “Logan Lynn is a modern day Gene Kelly.”

The album is available now on deluxe edition double CD, vinyl and digital download wherever music is streamed and sold. Lynn, who just wrapped up a summer tour raising awareness about mental health on the road with fellow Portland rockers Portugal. The Man, will be touring the U.S. in support of My Movie Star this spring.
