'Next Women of Country' CLASS OF 2016
Following her independent sophomore album release ‘ Shuteye ’ , 25-year-old Logan Brill continues to define herself as one of the most important young artists in Nashville today. With a stunning voice that goes toe to toe with Nashville's finest, the y oung Knoxville native opts for grit and authenticity over pristine pop in her song choices, drawing com parisons to Bonnie Raitt, Brandi Carlile, and Mary Chapin Carpenter from national press.
Outlets like Billboard, The LA Times, Rolling Stone, The Huff ington Post, CMT, Country Weekly, & Pollstar have already shown their support for her refreshingly a uthentic 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 contemporari es ” (The Boot). The Huffington Post dubbed ‘ Shuteye ” a “ wake up call for Nashville ” and The Knoxville New Sentinel raved her as “ one of those country artists who gives you a little glimmer of hope that good commercial country still exists. ” Most recently, Rolling Stone placed Logan on their “ 10 New Country Artists You Need to Know ” list , Billboard included her as one o f “ 13 Country Artists to Watch, ” and Cosmopolitan dubbed her one of “ 8 Female Country Artists You Should Be Listening to Right Now. ”
It seems fans nationwide agree, as Logan has appeared on sold-out bills in markets from Nashville to Chicago to Seattle with legendary artists like Merle Haggard, Vince Gill, Dwight Yoakam, & Leon Russell to contemporary mega-stars like Gary Allan , Lee Brice , & The Band Perry. On the same weekend in April of 2015 she made bi-coasta l debuts at both the famed North Carolina roots music festival Merlefest, and California ’ s Stagecoach - the nation ’ s highest grossing country music festival. A few weeks later, Logan also made her Grand Ole Opry debut, where she continues to appear regularly. 2016 hasn ’ t slowed down with performances at Joe ’ s Bar in Chicago, Spring appearances at Taste of Country Music Festival and Country Jam Festivals in Colorado & Montana, and the inaugural Nashville Meets London Festival at Canary Wharf in London.
