Veteran Portland Songwriter Logan Lynn Releases His Most Uncomfortable Album Yet
by Dom Sinacola

“Logan Lynn knows Old Portland.

Lynn came to Portland in 1996, fleeing a fundamentalist Christian upbringing. (“I grew up in a cult, frankly,” he says.) With a bedroom demo of wounded electro-pop disguising soul-baring subject matter behind disco glitz, he befriended many of the mid-’90s stalwarts of Portland music scene, like Elliott Smith and the Dandy Warhols, eventually signing to the latter’s Beat the World Records, a Caroline/EMI subsidiary.

But that doesn’t mean he misses it.

“I’m not pro-gentrification. I’d love us to have a better plan for the people being left behind or displaced,” he says.

But.

“There was a part of that scene that was mostly about getting high and not having jobs. I don’t know if I feel super-protective of that part of it. You can’t wish for something that’s not based in reality to last forever.”

Lynn has had his own issues. He overdosed in 2008, and though he’s been clean since, he says the pressures of being signed to a major label made it more difficult to navigate sobriety. That same year, midtour, he “freaked out” and quit. “I walked away and sent a press release to everyone about my career suicide, in the middle of the night,” he says. “I went and worked at a community center the next day. I needed to reclaim my humanity on some level.” Read the rest of this entry »

Logan Lynn Reviewed by Willamette Week (July 2013)

I just picked up a copy of the current issue of Willamette Week and discovered that they picked my Portland show as one of their “Highly Recommended” events this week and included the following review of my new record, tour, return to music, etc. in print and online.

Thank you, Willy Week! I love love LOVE the hometown welcome I was given this week by the local press and community. Portland Monthly Magazine, The Portland Mercury, PQ Monthly and Willamette Week all picked the Portland stop on my summer tour as a must-do…which was such a treat! I’m blushing over all the gushing, Puddletown.  Thanks so much!!!

Logan Lynn Review in Willamette Week (July 10th, 2013)From Willamette Week (July 10th, 2013 Print Issue)

“[GLOW STICKS, BOAS AND CASIO DREAMS] Since announcing his “extended hiatus” from music in 2010, former Dandy Warhols protégé Logan Lynn stepped back from the corporate machine behind major-label breakthrough From Pillar to Post and joined the staff at local queer hub Q Center. A few years and a charity record later, the Portland electro-popper is back with Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks, a layered confection of shiny beats, blips and synths with more lyrical heft (“Hologram,” “Loud Enough”) than the average dance-floor soundtrack. Lynn is back on the road, too, thanks to the Accidental Bear Queer Music Benefit tour, a five-city bicoastal trek to support LGBT and related mental-health resources nationwide. Also on the disco-ball-begging bill: trippy glam rockers Conquistador and the hairy hip-hop of Chicago bear MC Big Dipper, which is most assuredly not a football thing.”

 

LOGAN LYNN’S NEW RECORD “I KILLED TOMORROW YESTERDAY” FEATURED ON OREGON MUSIC NEWS + MORE THIS WEEK!

It’s been really touching this week since announcing my upcoming hiatus to see how many people, venues, record stores and press outlets have felt that my taking a break from the stage is newsworthy (Just Out, Willamette Week, KZME FM Radio & Oregon Music News to name a few). Makes a boy feel really loved during a rather slippery, uneasy time, so…thanks for that.

In addition to the announcement of my change of plans last week on their site which you can read HERE, OMN (Oregon Music News) picked up on my swan song today and has it featured in a story titled “Logan Lynn Releases Final Album Via YouTube“. Click HERE to redirect or keep reading below.

From Oregon Music News: (8/3/2010)

“While Logan Lynn may have decided to call it quits last week, he’s at least also decided that “The last hoorah may as well have a soundtrack, right?”

Releasing his final album as YouTube playlist, “I Killed Tomorrow Yesterday” features lyrics and vocals from Lynn with music and programming by Bryan Cecil. The album is Read the rest of this entry »

Logan Lynn (2010)

The “Willamette Week” wrote a feature preview spotlight about my upcoming show this week at Doug Fir with “Cars & Trains” and “The Gentry”. Pick up a copy of this week’s issue, Check it out online HERE, or you can read what they had to say about stuff and thangz up in these parts just below.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 7TH: Doug Fir Lounge

Logan Lynn, The Gentry, Cars & Trains / $6-

[PET SHOP SOUNDS] While recently released fourth album From Pillar To Post piles up critical accolades and new video “Bottom Your Way to the Top” strokes cable playlists from MTV to, um, Spike, Logan Lynn’s tunefully bleeped singer-songwriterly electro ballads haven’t been heard live ‘round the icon’s hometown for months. This performance reportedly marks Lynn’s debut with a live backing band (openers the Gentry), though, set against the vocals’ honeyed melancholia, beats were never the point.

-Jay Horton, Willamette Week

“Icon”, huh? Nice one.

CHECK OUT LOGAN LYNN IN THE 2009 MUSICFEST NORTHWEST FESTIVAL GUIDE & SONICBIDS AD!

Logan Lynn (2009)

As you may know, I have a showcase at the HUGE Portland annual bandfest MFNW again this year! I will be playing Friday, September 18th at 9pm at East End (203 SE Grand Ave.) with Royal Bangs, The Punk Group, & Tigercity! Come out and play!

I popped up in the guide in a couple of places this year…Here is what my blurb (on page 21 of the MFNW festival guide) reads:

“LOGAN LYNN – (Dancy Pantsy)
Portland beat boy Logan Lynn has range. His songs span from slutty to romantic, from cluttered to clean as a whistle. Since signing with Beat The World Records (The Dandy Warhols label), Lynn has been cranking out peppy, electronic dance jams like a turbocharged machine. Pairing with synth-savvy local producer Carlos Cortes (of DJ collective Assemble the Empire) allowed Lynn to pump out his most polished EP yet, Feed Me To The Wolves.”

THEN…on page 36, I am the subject of the SONICBIDS half-page ad! Check it out!

LOGAN LYNN "I AM SONICBIDS" AD, MFNW GUIDE 2009

See you on the 18th, folks!
