On her debut album 'Walking Wires,' 22-year-old Logan Brill sounds like she's been at it for years. With a stunning voice that could go toe to toe with Nashville's finest, the young singer-songwriter opts for grit and authenticity over pristine pop in her song choices, citing artists like Patty Griffin, Bonnie Raitt, The Band, Alison Krauss, and Ryan Adams as influences.
Call her music country, Americana, or whatever else you'd like - to Brill, it's all the same. "I'm not trying to be Taylor Swift or Carrie Underwood. But I'm also not trying to be Bonnie Raitt or Patty Griffin," she says. "I'm just trying to be authentic to myself, and make music that means something to me."
Following her move to Nashville, Brill began working with Carnival Music, home to established songwriters like David Nail, Gretchen Peters, Scooter Carusoe, Troy Jones and many others. Carnival is owned and operated by producer Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Lee Ann Womack, Chris Knight) and is responsible for generating thirteen number one songs in the past decade. As a label, Carnival Recording Company is also known for launching the career of Eli Young Band.
Logan’s debut is already turning heads, dubbed one of the “Top 10 Country Albums of 2013” by That Nashville Sound and The Boot referring to her as “a far cry from the slick pop country of any of her contemporaries." She spent most of 2013 touring the Eastern US with Artists like Leon Russell, Jerry Douglas, Josh Turner, Carbon Leaf, Holly Williams, & more….
