SCHEDULED TO PLAY MERLEFEST & STAGECOACH IN APRIL
NEW STUDIO ALBUM SHUTEYE TO BE RELEASED LATER THIS YEAR
Nashville, TN — March 24, 2015 — Up and coming song stylist Logan Brill is scheduled to make her OPRY debut on May 16. Next month, Brill will also be making stops at Merlefest and Stagecoach as she makes her way from coast to coast on tour.
The Tennessee native grew up on the good stuff; singing around campfires with a musical family and playing in her brothers’ blues band as a teenager. While other kids her age were listening to the latest pop hits on the radio, Logan was listening to iconic musical figures ranging from Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton to Bonnie Raitt, John Hiatt and Van Morrison. Her love of roots based music both country and blues has informed her decisions when selecting songs and impacted her powerful and pure vocals with an approachable bluesy vulnerability.
SHUTEYE, due later this year, is the follow up to Brill’s acclaimed 2013 debut album WALKING WIRES. Already a critic’s darling, she has earned praise from: Southern Living, Country Weekly, CMT and Billboard among others.
Immediate album stand outs include the smoldering-with-sass title track “Shut Eye,” the sultry with swagger “Don’t Pick It Up,” along with “Woman On Your Mind” with a guest appearance by David Nail and “I Wish You Loved Me” with a guest appearance by Charlie Worsham.
In addition to early praise from music critics, Logan has also been accepted by her peers who have taken her under their wing on tour. Her pure pitch and ability to turn a phrase like a seasoned veteran has helped her to earn coveted slots opening for the likes of Merle Haggard, Steve Earle, Gary Allan, Dwight Yoakam, Josh Turner, Ashley Monroe, Todd Snider, Alabama and Leon Russell to name a few.
Brill has quickly begun to create a buzz in music city, while carving out a niche all her own. On Saturday Brill performed in Nashville at Tin Roof’s 13th Anniversary Party with Delta Saints and country-soul slinger Sam Lewis. This week, she’s headed south for stops in Alabama and Louisiana.
