“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.”
– Billboard

“2021 Performers of the Year”
– Out Magazine

“New Money feels like a bedroom disco record steeped in lockdown-era dread — boasting downers turned uppers. Many tracks on the album, but especially the first two singles, harken back to the thirstiest months of sheltering in place. Whether contrarian or just comfortable with seeming contradiction, Lynn is an artist interested in turning ideas on their heads.”
– The Portland Mercury

“This Portland artist’s latest album is a well-crafted set of New Wave-influenced electro-pop with bright synths, propulsive rhythms and buoyant melodies.”
– KEXP

“Logan Lynn is a modern day Gene Kelly.”
– Innocent Words Magazine

“A testament to queer power and gay joy”
– GLAAD

“The sound of lo-fi New Order fused to Depeche Mode grime, albeit with lots more hedonism, gay sex, and musical provocations of the most pleasurable sort — the guy knows what he’s doing, and it’s a delicious thrill to hear.”
– The A.V. Club

“An amazing piece of musical art. New Money makes you dance and it makes you think. Masterfully captures the juxtaposition between dance and thought, between light and dark.”
– Portland Radio Project

“Logan Lynn returned with the delightfully high energy album New Money and fabulous songs like the ultra-danceable Rich And Beautiful really are testament as to why Lynn has endured as long as he has.”
– God is in the TV (UK)

“Simple, direct and effective. With this album, Lynn has tapped into the consciousness and sound of 1980s synthpop and stripped it back to the bare bones, leaving only deep hooks and emotion on display.”
– Music OMH

“Logan Lynn fills the vacant space in music that goes beyond drugs, sex and rock and roll to what happens next, when the wounded and victimized awaken to the potential of their own lives.”
– Sheila Hamilton (Emmy Award Winning Journalist, Radio Host, and Author)

“Empowering + Euphoric”
– Mundane Magazine

“A tribute to finding community when feeling like an outcast.”
– Voice of America

“Kill Rock Stars were my label of the year in ‘21 on their 30th anniversary and one reason they’re still vital is Logan Lynn, whose latest New Money is full of heartfelt lyrics worn hard on a Gucci sleeve, backed by disco ballsy glitch. Upbeat music with melancholic yet optimistic lyrics, it’s a real effervescent blast, a slap of cologne round your chops.”
– Velvet Sheep (UK)

“We loved Logan Lynn’s new album. Musically speaking, it’s super catchy, danceable, sensual, scintillating, halfway between 80s Synthpop and 2020s Electropop. With New Money, Logan Lynn seems to send a rainbow loaded with good vibes from Portland and it feels good.”
– La Parisienne Life (France)

“Logan Lynn captures the high beauty and strength of simple togetherness.”
– Backseat Mafia

“Somehow, a kid who grew up in a fundamentalist Christian church where even musical instruments were too secular to have around has developed into an innovative adult musician with a dirty-honest edge…blunt, raunchy, and fun.”
– Advocate Magazine

“Urgent, danceable, inspired songs.”
– MYSKEUDS (France)

“Defiant, insistent & powerful work…a thoughtful self-interrogation that pulls light out of darkness and healing out of grief, addiction and pain with subtlety, nuance, humor, and lively melodies.”
– Disarm Magazine
