The Logan operates on the principle of POSIDIY: positive do it yourself. Think for yourself, speak for yourself and take the music scene and make it your own. They've certainly accomplished that and more in a remarkably short period of time.
"Standing tall with the world right in front of me," Conor wrote in his notebook in April 2007, preparing to record vocals for To the Right. The lyrics are representative of Conor's mindset at the start of this incredible musical journey - The Logan.
This is a band whose music and lyrics are a powerful anthemic call to the masses to persevere through the obstacles to a better world and fight to make change.
The Logan had only begun to take form weeks earlier, in January 2007 with an idea: positive hardcore rock music. Conor Logan made the decision to leave his former band, The Days in Between, and fulfill his vision as frontman of his own band. Tim Nixon soon joined on guitar and writing began for their debut, Taking the Sun With You, which will be released in June 2007.
A friend of Nixon's, Brian Bash, stepped in as the band's drummer so that Conor could move behind the microphone. Bash thunders through songs with the power of a freight train. Nixon plays guitar with substance, emotion and an indie flair in the vein of Fugazi.
What can you expect from The Logan when they hit the streets in June 2007? Look forward to positive message-driven lyrics and melodies, high energy songs meant to get bodies in motion and a unified front of sound meant to change your course of thought.
The Logan doesn't stop with the band members. A supportive group of street-teamers, videographers, comedians and writers is quickly forming in support of this band, recognizing the potential in the music, the live shows and the charisma of the individual members.
The Logan currently has its record release show planned for The Viper Room in West Hollywood on June 17th. Immediately afterwards the guys will be hitting the streets and highways of the U.S. spreading their message and love for music. Always positive and forward thinking, you can expect a rocking and thought provoking set from The Logan.
"I've got to reach you," belts Conor on Clear Your Mind as he asks for the ears of Americans, knowing that the hearts will follow. This defines the mindset of the band: The Logan hits your ears and calls the listener to action. You are encouraged to get outside, think for yourself and think of the less fortunate; these ideals drive a raw musical form meant to grow and invigorate you, the listener.
