LOGAN LYNN // NEW MONEY \\ OUT NOW!

  

LISTEN: Logan Lynn Interviewed on the Latest Episode of The Depression Files Podcast (AUDIO)

I’m the guest this week on the new episode of The Depression Files Podcast, out today on iTunes, Podbean, and at www.TheDepressionFiles.com 🎧

“With mental and behavioral health, I’m trying to break down those barriers and make it normal — and I figure it can also be fun and happy, right? Like…why stop at normal? Maybe we can all actually celebrate the joy of recovery, the joy of resilience, the joy of music, and the fact that our humanity is actually made up of all of these parts. There’s something to be celebrated in that.”

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.

Portugal. The Man Advocate For Mental Health Awareness At Oregon Tour Stops: Exclusive

Portland-based indie rockers Portugal. The Man have been touring steadily since the release of last year’s Woodstock, which housed the record-breaking hit “Feel It Still.” But they have something special planned for its handful of homecoming shows in Oregon this summer: the band has partnered with public advocacy campaign Keep Oregon Well and its co-founder, musician Logan Lynn, to help raise awareness for mental health.

“Mental Health is personal for our whole band,” PTM frontman John Gourley said in a statement. “As touring musicians, self-care can quickly become make it or break it on the road.” Gourley added that the goal of partnering with Lynn and the Keep Oregon Well street team at their shows is to inspire their fans to make mental healthy a priority, too.

Portugal. The Man

Lynn, who co-founded the campaign in 2014 along with Trillium Group CEO Kim Scott, agreed that mental health needs to be discussed more openly to help break the stigma surrounding it. “As a suicide survivor myself, I know how important not feeling isolated is,” he said in a statement. “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?”

Lynn made clear that in all he does, he has only one end point in mind: “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.”

Today (July 12), Lynn’s new album is available for pre-order; Portugal. The Man’s Oregon tour dates kick off Aug. 24. View the full list of shows below.

Aug. 24th — Portland, Oregon (McMenimans Edgefield)
Aug. 25th — Portland, Oregon (McMenimans Edgefield)
Aug. 30th — Jacksonville, Oregon (Britt Pavilion)
Aug. 31st — Bend, Oregon (Les Schwab Amphitheater)

I was interviewed by PQ Monthly this past week about my summer tour, and this Thursday’s Portland show at Mississippi Studios. Have a gander at the original on the PQ site HERE, or just keep reading below…

From PQ Monthly, July 2013:

Now that July 4th has come and gone, you can start planning for July 11th–that’s the date the tour with the longest official title ever–Accidental Bear Queer Music Tour Benefit for LGBTQ Mental Health Services and Suicide Prevention–descends upon our fair city. The lineup is almost as long as the name–it includes Big DipperLogan Lynn, and Rica Shay to name a few–and that’s a very good thing for lovers of music everywhere. (You can check out the entire lineup here.) We had a chance to chat with local music-maker Logan Lynn, who also helps head up Q Center, just before he headed out on tour–we talked un-retiring retirement, tour preparation, the mass of talent assembled for this very good cause, and queer mental health services.

PQ Monthly: You’ve talked lots about the tour prep–and the rigorous schedule involved. Aside from working your ass off, what’s been the best, most rewarding thing about all this so far?

Logan Lynn: Yeah, it’s a lot of work to make a tour happen, and I have Read the rest of this entry »

Logan Lynn Interview On Manhunt.com This Week – Summer Tour, Christian Bigotry, and Bears…Oh My!

Logan Lynn Interview On Manhunt Daily (June 2013)

I was interviewed by Manhunt.com this week for Manhunt Daily. We chatted about my upcoming summer tour, Christian bigotry, and tall hairy dudes. Read it on the very N.S.F.W Manhunt site HERE, or just keep reading below for the transcript:

From Manhunt.com: (June 26th, 2013)

Logan Lynn’s musical career has been a roller coaster ride from the very beginning. From his first professional music effort at 17, a mixtape, that ended up causing him to stay off the stage due to stage fright, to climbing back into the spotlight with a little help from The Dandy Warhols, his passion for writing music has made him a favorite of the Logo Network, and now he’s headlining theAccidental Bear Queer Music Tour. He took a moment to answer some questions about what it’s all been about.

Manhunt:  Speaking of Accidental Bears – do you consider yourself an otter, a cub, a bear or none of the above?

Logan Lynn: I mean, I’m a tall, hairy guy who likes hairy guys. Does that make me one of those? If so, I’m good with it… So long as it doesn’t limit me somehow.

What advantages do you think you gain from being a musician who is gay?

My “Burning Your Glory” video was one of the first ever shown by Logo when MTV first created the channel, and they went on to air every music video I released from 2008 through 2012 before their weekly video countdown show “NewNowNext” was canceled – 7 videos in all, each time being broadcast into something like 26 million homes. I hosted the show twice, was on commercials for the network constantly for 2 years, my video “Feed Me To The Wolves” was named one of the “Top 10 Videos of the Year” by Logo, and I did countless events and interviews by way of that relationship in the years since. That kind of cultural visibility just simply would not have happened had I not been an OUT musician.
