Band of the Day

Kim Logan

Blood, sweat, and booze-fueled roots rock rising from the swamps of Florida to the honky tonks of Nashville
Well I been home for just one day, and you've already made it clear that my devil-born boy with his angel face just ain't sittin' with you mama dear.
lyrics from Black Magic Boy

Kim Logan arose from the swamps and beaches of Sarasota, Florida, after a decade in the opera industry, to write songs and make records in Nashville.

With her education from the Berklee College of Music, and her years of the kind of hands-on learning you can only get in honky tonks and on highways, Kim flexes her artistic muscles in every medium of art imaginable. In addition to the release of her debut self-titled album, Kim has penned a guest editorial for Lockeland Springsteen, consulted on and served as muse for a collection by fashion designer Rachel Hesse, and collaborated with filmmakers Joshua Shoemaker (Alabama Shakes, Clear Plastic Masks), and Trillbee the Hooligan (Ziggurat Records) in the mediums of short film and music video.

A classic, craftsman's songwriting sensibility, paired with sonic homage to each unique sub-genre in the history of southern music, makes for Kim's gap-bridging, line-blurring, time-traveling sound. The diverse and compelling songs on her debut album were written over the course of her first two years living in Nashville. They were recorded at Ocean Way Studios on Music Row and at Electric Kite Studios in East Nashville – there is blood, sweat, and booze in every second of the recordings, and Kim continues to write for her second album.

From the delta blues to the psychedelic ‘60s, from the golden years of classic country to the perfect rock & roll of mid-century Britain, Kim illustrates her roots through her original music. In the dark and mysterious gentleman’s club of rock & roll, Kim is the new queen.
