Kim Logan

? Audrey Scherer

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.
Kim was educated at the Berklee College of Music, and added years of hands-on learning in various honky-tonks traveling the great highways of America.
In addition to the release of her debut self-titled album, Kim has published poetry and essays, consulted on and served as muse for fashion designers and vintage curators, and collaborated with everyone from filmmakers, to burlesque and hoop dancers, to portrait artists, in interdisciplinary displays of performance art.

The second oeuvre of Kim’s work, “Pseudoscience,” began its release in August of 2016. The first two chapters are produced and developed by the formidable sonic wizards Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton), and Brett Orrison (The Black Angels). Kim continues to innovate, reinvent, and create from nothing. Kim is also an ensemble/comprimario singer with the Nashville Opera company, and can be seen in productions throughout their festival season.
A classic, craftsman’s songwriting sensibility, paired with sonic homage to each unique sub-genre in history which has influenced her, makes for Kim’s gap-bridging, line-blurring, time-traveling sound.

But bottom line, Kim Logan is one hell of a blues singer.

So let’s check out some of her catalog.

First up her latest release, some really swampy blues. Gotta love a song about a long black Cadillac, with awesome guitar work all round. You can hear that Kim’s voice has had some beautiful training, so clear and pure, yet a goodly touch of grit for the blues. She was made to sing the blues.
