Logan Lynn and Portugal. The Man Take Over Britt Festival in Jacksonville!

I drove the RoadTrek from Portland to Jacksonville, Oregon with Pretty Baby and Keep Oregon Well Resilience Consultant Caitlin Young in tow yesterday so we could wake up in town today for the big show. That was SO much fun, Britt Festival! Holy shit.

Portugal. The Man have been taking me to Satanic rock church every single night on this magical tour, friends — and they’re making all of my big dreams for the world come true while they do it. Actual heroes, every last one of them.

We’ll see you again tomorrow night in Bend!

I have no words for the experience of these first two shows on tour with Portugal. The Man — other than THANK YOU. Honestly, you had to be there. And about 16,000 of you were.

🙂

See you in a few days to do it all over again, Jacksonville!

Singing to a Different Tune: How Logan Lynn Breaks Stigma With Music

Logan Lynn sometimes has unspeakable thoughts.

The versatile artist, whose music career has spanned more than 20 years, will often experience moments when he can’t quite communicate what he’s thinking, how he feels or why he feels it. It’s can be a paralyzing and terrifying conundrum, and one that is far too familiar to the millions of people like him who experience depression.

“My depression feels, at times, so great that I can’t even find words to tell someone how I’m feeling … but my pen usually seems to still work,” said Lynn, who has lived experience managing depression, addiction and suicidal ideation. Read the rest of this entry »

Portugal. the Man will be raising awareness for mental health during the band’s four shows in Oregon next month.

“Mental health is personal for our whole band,” says frontman John Gourley. “As touring musicians, self-care can quickly become make it or break it on the road.”

The shows take place August 24 and 25 in Portland, and August 30 and 31 in Jacksonville and Bend, respectively.

Portugal. the Man is currently touring Europe behind their 2017 album Woodstock, and they’ll return to the U.S. later this month. If you catch the band on tour, you’ll get to see their intro video, which features none other than Beavis and Butthead reviewing “Feel It Still.”

Logan Lynn and Portugal. The Man Feature Story on Track Record Mexico

Portugal. The Man en defensa de la salud mental y “despertar conciencias

La banda estadounidense colaborará con la campaña Keep Oregon Well.

Luego de un año activo en el que Portugal. The Man ha estado de gira promocionando Woodstock, su más reciente álbum de estudio, la banda estadounidense ha decidido integrarse a Keep Oregon Well, campaña pública en defensa de la salud mental y “despertar conciencias” dirigida por Logan Lynn, músico conocido por su activismo social.

De acuerdo con un comunicado compartido por Billboard, el líder de Portugal. The Man, John Gourley, la inmersión en los temas de salud mental es parte de la banda: “la salud mental es un asunto personal para nosotros. Como músicos que viajamos constantemente, el cuidado propio puede romperse rápidamente en el camino”.

Portugal. The Man, el éxito mediático y Keep Oregon Well

La banda originaria de Portland, Oregon, consiguió el éxito mediático gracias a “Feel It Still”, sencillo principal de Woodstock, lanzado el año pasado, que superó sus expectativas y se convirtió en la canción número uno en 18 países a lo largo del 2017. En enero, la canción se llevó el Grammy por Mejor Dúo Pop e Interpretación Grupal.

Por su parte, la fundación Keep Oregon Well es un proyecto de la organización Mental Health Matters que busca ser un “movimiento social” diseñado para “reducir los estigmas” que existen en torno a la salud mental y el comportamiento, según su página oficial. Su propósito es “crear una comunidad informada sobre la existencia de traumas mentales y dar la oportunidad de aprender más sobre la salud mental y al mismo tiempo apoyar a aquellos que luchan por mantenerla”.

En 2014, Logan Lynn, que ha trabajado para bandas como The Dandy Warhols, fundó la campaña después de intentar suicidarse: “como un sobreviviente, sé lo importante que es no sentirse solo. Los estigmas existen porque gente nos ha hecho sentir que los retos mentales y de comportamiento son defectos personales y no lo ven como cualquier otra condición médica. Si te rompes el brazo mañana, ¿te sentirías avergonzado?”, señaló en el comunicado.

Después de pasar tiempo en rehabilitación por problemas de adicción al crack y el intento de suicidio, Lynn también ha dedicado su labor como músico a enfrentar la discriminación contra la comunidad LGBTTTI.

“No dejaré de hacer este trabajo hasta que la última parte de la vergüenza que hace que personas como yo no busquemos ayuda, se vaya”, expresa Lynn. Por su lado, Gourley señaló que la alianza con Keep Oregon Well pretende también inspirar a sus fans para apoyar a la causa, o bien, buscar ayuda si es que lo requieren.

Feature Story on Summer Tour with Portugal. The Man and Logan Lynn in Music Connection Magazine

From Music Connection Magazine: (7/12/18)

Portland, Oregon-based chart-topping Grammy winners and previous Music Connection cover artist, Portugal. The Man have announced that they will be bringing the Keep Oregon Well: Mental Health Mattersmovement on tour this summer at all of their Oregon shows and events.

“Mental Health is personal for our whole band,” Portugal. The Man’s John Gourley continued, “We all have days where we feel happy and well, and days where we don’t – and, contrary to popular belief, this is actually a completely normal part of the human experience. As touring musicians, self-care can quickly become make it or break it on the road. By partnering with Logan Lynn and the Keep Oregon Well Street Team at these shows, our goal is to inspire everybody to make mental health a priority, too.”

Keep Oregon Well is a public advocacy campaign and social movement co-founded by fellow Portland-based musician Logan Lynn and Trillium Group CEO Kim Scott, designed to reduce stigma surrounding mental and behavioral health, build a trauma-informed community, and give people the opportunity to learn more about mental health while standing with those who may be struggling with theirs.

“We are thrilled that Portugal. The Man has adopted this cause as their own,” said Kim Scott, Trillium Group CEO and Keep Oregon Well Co-Founder. “Trillium is deeply committed to meeting community where they are at, and this partnership — the information, awareness, connection and hope it will bring to people across Oregon — is a critical component in building resilience and, ultimately, saving a life.

Nationwide, 1 in 5 people will experience a mental health crisis in their lifetime. In Oregon, that statistic is 1 in 4. Keep Oregon Well aims to change that! Now in its 4th year, the movement has a long-running Concert Series that has featured bands and artists that range from Bleachers, Walk Off The Earth and Charli XCX, to Desiigner, Flo Rida, Graham Nash and Alice Cooper.

“As a suicide survivor myself, I know how important not feeling isolated is,” Portland musician and Keep Oregon Well Co-Founder Logan Lynn continued, “We all have trauma, and we all have the ability to bounce back – forward, even – from those experiences. Stigma exists because people have been made to feel like mental and behavioral health challenges are personal character flaws, versus being like any other medical condition. If you break your arm tomorrow, would you feel shame? Or would you just go to the doctor immediately and then have people sign your cast? I won’t stop doing this work until every last bit of the shame that prevents people like me from seeking help in the first place, is gone. I’m super excited about this tour and can’t wait to see you all at these shows!”
