LOGAN LYNN // NEW MONEY \\ 1.21.22

  

Trying to build a live show and plan for the future during this time in the world is hilarious.

I’ve been signing checks like LOL THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN.

I love you all! Be safe out there. 🖤

So anyway, I guess I’m leaving the house.

We start rehearsals next month for my new live show and just booked a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter to haul me and my lasers across the country for the big debut at SXSW in March.

Rave ‘til dawn, gays. See you in real life again this spring.

💚❤️

The demon made me do it.

The demon told me that 2022 is my year, so I have once again agreed to leave the house. Booking shows and festivals for next year that Kill Rock Stars will be announcing sometime soon.

Logan Lynn’s “My Movie Star” Tour Debacle Featured in IndiePulse Music Magazine This Week

The entire “My Movie Star” tour debacle is featured on the homepage of IndiePulse Music Magazine today.

From IndiePulse Music Magazine: (2/16/19)

“Portland, Oregon-based musician Logan Lynn, whom anticipated an amazing journey of music and new self-discovery hits major “Pot-Hole” in planning due to unforeseen, or imaginable circumstances and has cancelled his planned 2019 “My Movie Star” North American Tour.

Lynn’s tour saga, which involves an international criminal scandal involving Class B RV Manufacturing giants RoadTrek and Erwin Hymer Group, was published in a statement on the artist’s website Friday, February 15th.

In an additional email sent directly to fans on Friday, Logan Lynn wrote: Read the rest of this entry »

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.

Logan Lynn and Portugal. The Man Featured on SetList.FM

I had such a great time with these rad humans this summer! Thanks for the shout-out, setlist.fm — And thank you to Portugal. The Man, forever and ever.

Check us out over on SetList HERE, or keep reading for the transcript below.

From SetList.FM: (9/27/18)

Portugal. The Man headlined a two-night stand at McMenamins Edgefield in Portland in August. Despite the thrill of a “hometown show” (the band is based in Portland) and a sold out show, their main focus of the night was on mental health.

Partnering with fellow Portland-based musician Logan Lynn, Portugal. The Man welcomed “Keep Oregon Well” to their performance, a company designed to reduce stigma surrounding mental and behavioral health. Volunteers donning “Keep Oregon Well” shirts roamed around the venue, and trucks with the same print were parked outside.

Thanks so much, Liz. I adore you.

Logan Lynn and Portugal. The Man Wrap PNW Tour at Les Schwab Amphitheater in Bend

Thanks to John, Zach, Eric, Zoe, Kyle, Jason, Rich and the entire #PTM team for bringing us along for the ride. That was so completely beautiful. Count me in ANYTIME.  🙂

Portugal. The Man and Logan Lynn Interview About Music and Mental Health on KOIN 6 CBS News

Thanks to KOIN 6 CBS News for taking the time to chat with us about what we’re all up to at these Portugal. The Man shows this summer! Click HERE to check it out on KOIN or keep reading below for the full transcript and video segment.

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Grammy winners and Portland’s own Portugal. The Man are helping to bring mental health awareness to the forefront at some of their concerts — including their recent sold-out shows at Edgefield.

Portugal. The Man hit it big with their song “Feel It Still,” and they’re using their popularity to do more than just entertain the masses.

“Mental health is just a subject that’s very close to us personally,” Zach Carothers, the band’s bassist, said.

KOIN 6 News met up with Carothers and keyboard player Kyle O’Quin before their Edgefield concerts on Aug. 24 and 25 to talk about a new campaign featured at their Oregon shows.

Concertgoers will see the “Keep Oregon Well” vans and volunteers at their performances — talking about mental health.

“There’s always kind of been a shame about it where you’re sad or not good on the inside,” Carothers said. “And that’s just recently coming out that that’s absolutely ridiculous. People need to take care of themselves.”

“Keep Oregon Well” was co-founded by fellow Portland-based musician Logan Lynn. It’s designed to reduce stigma surrounding mental and behavioral health.

“I think the more people who stand up and say, ‘This is my truth. I’m just like you, you’re not alone,’ that chips away at stigma each time,” Lynn said.

Lynn has been working with well-known musicians for years to give people access to mental health help through concerts.

He said, “I thought about, what would I have needed when I was 7 or 12 and struggling. It wasn’t listening to the adults in my life. It wasn’t listening to folks that could have guided me into services, but I was listening to Debbie Gibson and Paula Abdul, Milli Vanilli.”

This is the first time “Keep Oregon Well” has toured with a band. Portugal. The Man has two more Oregon shows this week — one in Jacksonville on Thursday and the final one Friday in Bend.

Portugal. The Man said Lynn’s mission is a perfect fit for them.

“Have you ever met this guy? Logan is great,” Carothers said.

O’Quin added, “He’s great because he’s open about talking about things and that’s what we’re trying to do.”

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!

A Man, His Dog and the Road…

Thanks for all the sweet messages over the past week since I announced I would be heading out on this new adventure! Many of you have asked what my next steps are, so here goes:

I bought a 2018 RoadTrek Simplicity SRT (pictured) that Pretty Baby and I picked up in Las Vegas this weekend, and now will be on the road for the foreseeable future, occasionally picking up GLASYS, Matt Alber and others to drive around with us, playing shows all over the country.

10 years ago a big piece of my recovery from alcohol and cocaine was locking myself in the house where I could be safe — and I have essentially been locked in here ever since (unless you paid me to leave). It has served me well in many ways, but it’s time to lock myself outside for a little while. See you soon, friends with driveways, outdoor power and water hookups!

I’m going to spend the next couple of months at the ocean while we book shows and get the record out. If you want us to come sing songs in your city, EMAIL US with your favorite venue and we’ll do our best to come see you. 🙂

XOXO
Logan
