New & Noteworthy: Logan Brill

Following her independent sophomore album release ‘Shuteye’, critically acclaimed Logan Brill continues to define herself as one of the most important young artists in Nashville today with the release of two brand new tracks, “Good Story” and “Giving Up.”

Outlets like Billboard, The LA Times, Rolling Stone, The Huffington Post, Hollywood Life, Taste of Country, and Country Weekly have praised her refreshingly authentic sound, imbued with a “bluesy American grit” (Southern Living) that sets her apart as “a far cry from the slick pop country of many of her contemporaries” (The Boot).   Rolling Stone placed Logan on their “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know” list, Billboard included her as one of “13 Country Artists to Watch,” and Cosmopolitan dubbed her one of “8 Female Country Artists You Should Be Listening to Right Now.”  Additionally, she was named part of CMT’s “Next Women of Country” rising star initiative.

Since 2013 Brill has relentlessly toured North America and abroad sharing stages with icons like Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam, & Leon Russell to contemporary stars such as Gary Allan, Lee Brice, & The Band Perry.  This has included stops at the prestigious Merlefest, California’s Stagecoach, a Grand Ole Opry performance with the legendary Vince Gill, and international appearances at C2C and Country Music Week Festivals.

Musical influences – I grew up listening mostly to the music of my parent’s generation…Gram Parsons, the Eagles, the Band, and The Rolling Stones. My parents split when I was young, so I lived in a small house with my mom and my sister outside Knoxville and I think what really inspired me the most was the music my mom played throughout our house growing up. She had a stack of CD’s, all strong female artists, that she’d play on rotation. Bonnie Raitt, Mary Chapin Carpenter, the Dixie Chicks, Wynonna Judd and Allison Krauss. I idolized those women as a kid, in part because they were such incredible singers, but also because they were strong women who had something important to say.

Personal Influences – When my parents split my Dad, who is an author, moved to a small town in Middle Tennessee, a few hours away. I grew up shuffling back and forth between different houses, always packing and unpacking a bag. I think it really prepared me for the somewhat unsettled lifestyle of a traveling musician. Actually, both my parents are freelance artists themselves, so they were incredibly supportive of me chasing my dream of being a singer-songwriter. I’m lucky to have that creative support system. 

Exclusive Quote –  It feels really great to finally be releasing music again. It’s been 3 years since my last record came out, and a lot has happened for me in that time – both personally and professionally. I’ve really tried to channel those emotions into this new music, and I hope people connect with that.

Sounds Like… think Sheryl Crow meets Brothers Osborne

Why You Should Be Listening – With an authentic gritty sound that sets her apart, Brill is a breath of fresh air with music that is real, relatable, and has a little edge
