Artist You Need to Know: Logan Brill

Authenticity.

If there’s one word to sum up Logan Brill’s music she makes it’s authenticity.

She’s authentic country. If you’re a fan of Miranda Lambert and Ashley McBryde, than Logan Brill is the next artist you need to add to your playlist.

A Tennessee girl, born in Knoxville, Logan grew up listening to a wide range of music from The Beatles and Pink Floyd to Alison Krauss and Eric Clapton and B.B. King. That musical foundation would end up shaping her life. After hearing “Walking In Memphis” a song that blends all of those formats together so beautifully, she performed it at a talent show she won and had her eyes set on music.

After high school she made the move to Nashville where she pursued music by attending Belmont University. From there she started honing her craft writing songs as often as she could and co-writting with as many people as possible. That led to a publishing and recording deal with Carnival.

Since then she has put out an album in 2015 called Shuteye that has earned rave reviews from music critics, fellow songwriters, and label executives.

When you listen to one of her songs you find yourself either hitting repeat or finding the next great song she sings. Seriously. Let’s take “Giving Up.” She sings about how hard love can be and at times it can be downright depressing. In this case she’s done with her relationship and putting in all the effort from her end. The opening lyrics of the song paint an incredible picture we can relate to:

I’m giving up these numbers on these napkins
These buy me one more drinks and we’ll see what happens
I’m giving up whiskeys and cokes, these neon clouds of smoke
These not so funny jokes that I’ve been laughing at anyway
I’m quitting, kicking the habit of trying to get over you

Her Shuteye album from 2015 features even more great songs that people need to hear. Brill’s vocals are so smooth on “World Still Round” – a song about how life goes on no matter the ups and downs of life. “I Wish You Loved Me” is an acoustic performance that is just her and her guitar as she sings about heartbreak. Then there’s “Far Cry from You” which gives off a 90s country vibe to it – a song that Martina McBride or Trisha Yearwood would record.

“Roll”, her most recent release from the spring of this year is a groovy little anthem that is infectious. Yet another example of her ability to create songs that have you wanting more.

We’re hoping that there’s more new music from Logan Brill in the near future. She’s the real deal and now she just needs that one song that takes off and catapults her on to the country charts.
