Mystery - Michael Logen
Our next LCM featured singer-songwriter Michael Logen is currently on a UK tour with Sarah Darling and Jenn Bostic. Growing up in the small town of Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, Michael learned to play guitar, piano and harmonica in living-room jam sessions with his family playing old Tom Paxton, Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash songs. He started writing songs when he was 12 years old. After high school, he spent a year touring in the US and Canada playing shows in prisons before heading to Nashville to attend university. After graduation, he signed with Combustion Music and traveled through Spain, Italy and France where he wrote many of the songs that would become his debut album. Our LCM #TrackOfTheDay is a live version of one of Michael's favourite songs 'Mystery' from his 'New Medicine' album released last year. This live recording is part of a Sixthman Session in Atlanta.
Michael has performed around the world opening for such artists as John Hiatt, John Legend, India.Arie, Jonny Lang and Mat Kearney.
His songs have also been featured on TV shows “One Tree Hill”, “Parenthood”, "Nashville", "The Fosters", "Jimmy Kimmel", “Real World”, “Kyle XY”, “The Hills”, “Switched at Birth” and “Beauty and The Beast” among others.
Blending elements of folk and pop, his work brings the poetry and lyrical depth of the folk tradition into the infectious melodies and subtle grooves of a pop singer/songwriter.
After 2 recent European tours, Michael is now back in the studio writing and working with Grammy award-winning producer Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Norah Jones, Tom Waits, Modest Mouse), and wrapping up a new album.
