LOGAN LYNN // NEW MONEY \\ OUT NOW!

  

It’s A Good Day To Support Independent Musicians

If you feel like supporting independent music, today is a great day to buy some records!

Bandcamp is giving 100% of the profits from sales today to the artists themselves, and I’ll be donating 100% of today’s proceeds to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund.

You can find my entire catalog (1998-2020) at LoganLynn.Bandcamp.com

The Netflix Saga Continues…

‪Ended the year with an album I put out in 2016 at #25 on the iTunes chart in Brazil, and an acoustic E.P. I recorded at home in 2011 at #31. ‬

‪Thank you, EastSiders on Netflix! This is all because of Kit Williamson. ‬‬🎧

Logan Lynn’s “My Movie Star” Featured and Reviewed in March 2019 Issue of OutSmart Magazine

From OutSmart Magazine (March 2019 Issue)

“Nine albums into his recording career, Logan Lynn’s My Movie Star is easily his most ambitious project to date. The oversized package consists of the 10-song album on the first disc and a second disc of remixes, as well as other artists covering a few songs from My Movie Star. With the exception of the title cut, the songs, co-produced by Lynn and Jay Mohr (yes, that Jay Mohr!), were co-written by Lynn and piano sensation Glasys. In other words, this album is a new and unexpected direction for Lynn, who is perhaps best known for his electronic music stylings. Among the cover versions on the second disc, the rendition of “Big City Now” by Tiffany (yes, that Tiffany!), is a must.”

Indie Rant # (I Lost Count)

 

Nobody should need anything but their naked eye to see that since the beginning I’ve been hiring publicity teams to promote my music and film work, boost social posts, and find creative placement angles so mainstream media outlets embed my videos, bringing views and visibility.
 
I OPENLY CLAIM THIS.
 
And honestly, it’s just how it works when you are perpetually trying to get your name out there as a relatively unknown independent artist. We’re all out here just doing whatever we can to beat the almighty algorithm and stand out in the crowd.
 
I’ve been managing and funding the entire production of all of my records, videos and tours myself for the past 20 years. There have been a few times where I’ve done that while on a label, but even then I was navigating most of this whole thing solo. And believe it or not, mentally ill gay guys who refuse to stick to a single genre longer than one album cycle and sing openly about their issues related to overcoming sexual trauma and crack addiction aren’t what all A&R reps at every record label are looking for. 👻
 
I’ve been doing all this because I need an outlet to work my shit out, and as a byproduct it has actually helped me build community around things I care deeply about; but I’m the first to admit a lot of my journey both publicly and privately has been more than a little goofy.

I’m trying to be cool about this but Broadway legend hero supertalent (and best FRIENDS guest star of all time, hands down) Joanna Gleason is holding a copy of my new record “My Movie Star” in this photograph (while standing next to her darling talented son Aaron David Gleason, who appears on side B) and OH MY GOD I’M FULL FANBOY SCREAMING!!!

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

Pre-Order “My Movie Star” Now and Download Logan Lynn’s Collaboration with Rian Lewis Instantly!

Breaking from my usual process, I wrote 19 new songs for My Movie Star by myself on the Steinway piano in my living room, then narrowed the tracklist down to 10 for the release. Unlike any of my previous work over the past 20 years, all of these tracks began with me streaming these initial writing sessions for all of you and my followers on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, live from my loft in Portland, Oregon.

I then took those Steinway Sessions live recordings offline and sent countless clips to this record’s co-Producer Jay Mohr for feedback and direction. This back-and-forth process — which mainly consisted of Jay telling me to quiet down and pushing me to be braver and more exposed — went on for most of 2016 while I was on the road promoting my last release, ADIEU

From there, I invited Portland-based piano genius (and T-Pain muse) GLASYS to come on board to build out the key parts and a few months later we locked ourselves in The Hallowed Halls with Justin Phelps (Amanda PalmerDresden DollsDead Kennedys) and Mike Blackburn (The Wild WarScars on 45Dungen) until My Movie Star was complete. Jay Mohr, who is also a writer on 2 of the songs, gets credit for inspiring the album as a whole.

My Movie Star will be released on October 12th, 2018 as a 2-disc set, alongside an album of all the songs reimagined by The Dandy Warhols, Tiffany (“I Think We’re Alone Now”), Jarryd James, Rian Lewis (Gorillaz, Chromeo), DoublePlusGood, Stose and many more of my favorite bands, artists and musical heroes.

Pre-Order on Double CD, Double Vinyl, or Digital Download at the links below and you’ll get my collaboration with Rian Lewis (Track 1 on Disc 2) instantly!

Thursday timesuck: A short musical film featuring actor/comedian Jay Mohr

“Jay Mohr is best known as an actor, comedian and radio host as well as a podcaster. He’s teamed up musician Logan Lynn to create this short film called My Movie Star, which takes us through the fakery and crap that comes with being famous in Hollywood.

This project will also come with a double album this fall, which will include a collaboration with the Dandy Warhols. Give it a watch.”
