WATCH VIDEO FROM LOGAN LYNN & THE GENTRY’S LAST TWO SHOWS FROM THEIR SUMMER TOUR HERE!

Well it has been really amazing getting to work with The Gentry this past year. I’ve been able to realize some loud rock dreams with those guys in tow and I’m really grateful for the time they spent working to prepare for our tour together this Summer and all the time spent traveling around the U.S. with me in a van. We had some really magical moments on and off stage. I was finally able to move past some fairly long-standing stage fright and found freedom in the band format, having just been a singing DJ up to that point. I have Gino, Steve & AC to thanks for that.

We have had our share of disasters along the way as well…much of which revolved around our drummer’s body slowly breaking bone by bone. Dude broke his hand in San Francisco (and just kept playing) then he broke his foot 4 days before the big farewell show at Mississippi Studios in Portland and had surgery on his foot (metal plate anyone?) THE DAY BEFORE. He’s an animal.

At any rate, we made some last minute adjustments to the show obviously because he couldn’t play the entire hour long set. One such change was a bit of a throwback to my humble singing DJ beginnings from years back. It was fun to play some of the new stuff and have it just be pop. If my lighting guy had remembered to bring his board to go along with the lights we lugged to the venue it would have been a lot better…or maybe not. It ended up being very intimate, very bare bones, unmasked & vulnerable. It seemed like a very appropriate way to leave things. Here’s a clip from the karaoke portion of last week’s final show:

Logan Lynn: “Nobody Knows The Trouble I’ve Seen” & “Velocity” LIVE at Mississippi Studios, Portland (August 20th, 2010)

Next up is a clip from our secret show at this year’s Salem Pride Festival. It ended up being one of the best shows of the entire Summer. Sadly, the camera was right in front of Gino’s guitar amp so the sound of this video is way more fucked up than it usually is but it was such a good day I figured I’d post it anyway.

SALEM PRIDE WEEKEND WRAP-UP: LOGAN LYNN & THE GENTRY GET WILD AT FLIPSIDE BAR ON 8/6 + PLAY A SECRET SHOW AT THE FESTIVAL IN CASCADE GATEWAY PARK ON 8/7!

Well, that was fun. The Gentry boys and I just got home from a wild weekend in Salem, Oregon where we played TWO shows in less than 24 hours for 2010 Capitol City Pride! First we played their official opening party at Flipside Nightclub on Friday (August 6th) and ended up dancing the night away and filming scenes for my upcoming “Bleed Him Out” music video with me undoing my shirt and making sex face in the stripper cage. It was epic. For those of you who made it out, thanks! It was nice to see you.

The next morning I was finally able to announce that we were going to be the surprise performers at the Capitol City Pride Festival in Cascade Gateway Park later that afternoon (having kept it a secret since MAY when I was booked!) We got there and it was bustling with partying queers and their friends. We set up our electronics in the middle of the park and had one of the best shows of our whole Summer tour! As it turns out, I love secrets!!!

Thanks so much to everybody who took such great care of us this weekend and to all of you who came out to the shows! We filmed both of them so I’ll be posting clips sometime soon. You can check out hundreds of pix from our adventure on Myspace HERE or on Facebook HERE. I ended up having the best time ever this weekend and got to talk about Q Center on the loud mic for a bit at both shows as well so that was cool. Go Salem gays! See you again soon…

LOGAN LYNN INTERVIEWED ABOUT HIS DEPARTURE FROM MUSIC IN THIS WEEK’S ISSUE OF JUST OUT — DIGITAL VERSION HERE!

Last week I sat down with the editor of Portland Newsweekly Just Out (Amanda Schurr) to chat about my announced departure from my current life in Musicworld. A man has his reasons.

From Just Out: (8/6/2010)

Will Work for Good : Portland pop dynamo Logan Lynn quits music, for now…

Logan Lynn just wants a new hoodie. Sitting outside a North Portland cafe, blue hood yanked over a navy baseball hat, he points to a missing zipper pull—and later, more tellingly, to letters on the hoodie’s front, “F-R-E-D.”

“It just needs to say ‘not what I thought it was gonna be,’” he says, half joking.

It’s been that kind of decade for the Portland musician, who took to his website Thursday, July 29 to announce his self-proclaimed “career suicide,” an indefinite hiatus from the music business. With characteristic candor, Lynn wrote: “As I near the 10-year-anniversary of my debut record,… I have come to some conclusions not only about the journey I’ve been on since then musically and in my personal life, but also the journey I intend to be on moving forward with both.

One thing that is painfully clear to me and everyone who knows me in real life is that I AM MISERABLE. I have been for some time. I’m sick of being broke, mismanaged, overworked, screwed over by the folks who are supposed to be looking out for me … you know, all the hits.”

A few days later over iced coffee, Lynn pulls even fewer punches, with himself and others. “The more time I have to think it over, the more comfortable I am with the whole idea,” he says, in what begins a conversation about demons, downloads and the decision to withdraw from what he admits is an enviable, even courted spotlight—at least from the outside.

“I’m sure there’s at least a thousand bands in this town that I know that would be like, ‘Dude, you’re super blowing it. I have no idea what you’re talking about,’” concedes Lynn, fresh off a Read the rest of this entry »

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 TAKING AN EXTENDED BREAK FROM THE MUSIC INDUSTRY TO COMMIT CAREER SUICIDE – FULL STORY HERE.


Hey everybody. As I near the 10 year anniversary of my debut record, “GLEE” (which was originally released in October of 2000) I’ve been thinking a lot about all the years from there to here. I have come to some conclusions not only about the journey I’ve been on since then musically and in my personal life, but also the journey I intend to be on moving forward with both.

One thing that is painfully clear to me and everyone who knows me in real life is that I AM MISERABLE. I have been for some time. I’m sick of being broke, mismanaged, overworked, screwed over by the folks who are supposed to be looking out for me…you know, all the hits. Ever since I overcame my paralyzing stage fright, playing shows has been great and I’ve had a wonderful time on tour this Summer with The Gentry but the abnormalities that come along with being a working musician in the digital era without the proper, traditional support of a label are too much for me to just keep absorbing. I can’t be gone all the time like this. I don’t want to spend my life on the road with strangers in bars and hotel rooms. It’s not healthy. I’m homesick for a home that does not exist because I have been too busy to create it for myself, no other reason. I need something real in my life. I can no longer pretend that things are going to suddenly feel better like magic when I know that they are not. These things I’m putting all my energy into obtaining are not making me happy. They are not ever going to because fame and money and attention is not what I want anymore. It’s time that I take control of my own happiness, something I have been dreading and avoiding for years now because of the terrible consequences and pressures attached to doing so. I am finally brave enough and there is just no stopping me. My humanity is in need of repair. These are someone else’s dreams I’m killing myself to fulfill. It is time for me to chase the light to happiness, not acceptance by the masses.

I am going to take some time completely off far away from the business of being myself professionally, then we’ll see where life has led me. These final shows next month with The Gentry in Salem, on August 6th & in Portland on the 20th are going to be the last shows I play for at least a year or two so I hope you can make it. They are going to be very special nights. Please, PLEASE come to the final show at Mississippi Studios on Friday, August 20th and wish me farewell on my new journey.

I don’t know what I am going to be doing from here but I fulfilled my contract with Beat The World (so I know what I’m not going to be doing, which is a very clear start…or finish, as it were). I am Free, an unsigned independent artist once again, not bound to any contracts, people or associations. I find myself in a moment where I can do one of two things; and I gotta choose the peaceful road, you guys. Think I’m gonna go help people for awhile, do something that actually matters—that isn’t so self-serving and based in phony, superficial publicity opportunities. I am leaving the door open for me to change my mind later on so I’m not saying I’m done forever by any means but it honestly does feel that way at the moment. I just finished that new record with Bryan Cecil and have been leaking the demos all week, freeing myself of the rules and regulations that come with being a brand instead of just some stoner dude who makes funny sounding synthpop songs about death and darkness on his keyboard. If another label comes along and picks me up to release it I’d Read the rest of this entry »

WATCH VIDEO OF LOGAN LYNN & THE GENTRY PERFORMING LIVE AT ROCKIT ROOM ON TOUR IN SAN FRANCISCO HERE!

A few seriously mismanaged, mind-blowing venue/booking-related disasters aside, this was a really good night. Maybe my favorite group of wild dancing people from the whole tour so far and DEFINITELY my favorite bands to share the stage with; both The Gentry and The Hugs owned that room! There are a couple of angles I could work with this story but I have chosen to completely omit the really dumb, soul-crushing part about the dickholes running promotions at Rockit Room and only tell you about the wonderful part…for now.

(Insert evil laughter here.)

So with that being said, the story goes like this: I love you, San Francisco. Special thanks to Andrew Rodriguez who had read on Facebook earlier that week that my computer had died and proceeded to come up to me at the merch booth after dancing in the front row the whole night at our show and gave me a computer bag with a Mac Powerbook and all sorts of goodies inside. Like…out of the kindness of his heart!!! Can you believe that? He seriously deserves some sort of award. Also, serious props to Alex Jon Earl for being the most dedicated fanboy in the entire universe, following us all over the place this Summer, from Washington to California!!! I’m really glad I got the chance to meet you guys in person this Summer. Thanks for being prime examples of why I got into this whole musical mess in the first place.

🙂

Now watch some clips and pretend you are the tripod, sitting on the right side of the stage, so close you could punch any of us in the dick if you wanted to. Oh, and come see one of the remaining dates on our Summer Tour! Still up: Salem, Oregon at Flipside Nightclub for Salem Pride on August 6th & Portland, Oregon at Mississippi Studios on August 20th. Show info in the Events section of this site!
