“To write honest songs” Michael Logen's knee-jerk response to the difficult question “What are your career goals?”
His sound, sometimes compared to the likes of David Gray or Ray LaMontagne, is born out of simple, honest, often philosophical songwriting, delivered by a raw, emotional voice. Blending elements of folk and pop, Michael's music manages to capture the poetry, integrity and lyrical depth of the folk tradition with the beautiful melodies and subtle grooves of a modern pop singer/songwriter.
After graduating college in 2003, Michael signed with Combustion Music in Nashville, TN. Since then his music has taken him around the world, performing in nearly every state in the U.S. as well as in 8 other countries. Michael has recently shared the stage with such respected artists as John Legend, Jonny Lang, India.Arie and Sister Hazel.
Those songs he started writing at age 12 have now been featured on MTV, ABC, NPR, over 200 radio stations in the US and have also been recorded by such artists as Mat Kearney, Jonny Lang, Will Hoge, Gordie Sampson, Point of Grace and Josh Gracin.
With multiple awards, hundreds of shows and hundreds of thousands of miles behind him, as well as a new studio project underway, the simple goal, “to write honest songs” promises to keep fans eagerly waiting to hear what's next from Michael Logen.
