"One Man Band of Gypsies" represents a new musical chapter for solo artist / jack of all trades Logan Kendell. Listeners are calling it "An eclectic combination of indie rock, rock & roll, and surf." and " An escapist excursion for landlocked beach bums everywhere."
Logan was raised in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains on a farm in Idaho. "We lived eight miles in the country, so listening to music was how I entertained myself as a kid." Logan says. "My dad and I listened to people like Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Jimmy Buffett, and Crosby Still Nash & Young while we drove around the farm. My mom's influence was on the softer side: James Taylor, Jim Croce, and Carole King. I honestly didn't even realize for most of my early years that the music I was listening to wasn't current."
Logan's took his first steps as a performing artist at the age of seven as a miniature Elvis impersonator, a fitting start for an artist whose sound is always tinted with a little nostalgia. In High School he discovered multi-track recording. "I borrowed an old department store drumset from a friend, and a Bass guitar from the school choir department and basically taught myself how to play each of the songs just before I hit record."
Logan continues to play all the instruments on his recordings to this day. His most recent album, "One Man Band of Gypsies" is a melting pot of his varied influences, from the CSNY like harmonies and surf guitar solos on "California", to the pop ukulele and overdriven bass line of "Emma Stone". The album also features several covers, the thing for which Logan become known on Youtube. His cover of "Kiss The girl" from Disney's "The Little Mermaid" combines wall of sound production, classic reverb heavy guitar twang, Hawaiian ukulele, full symphonic orchestra, and his signature crooned vocals.
Logan lives in Boston with his wife, Katrina, and their new baby, Evangeline. He is studying songwriting and production at Berklee College of Music.
