Bouncing onto the national scene straight from America’s Heartland, Logan Tudeen’s twist on modern country adds a light and jubilant delivery to the formats offerings on her debut project. “I’m not here to rain on anyone’s sunshine, this is a fun record. It was dream of mine to record it and I really hope everyone has a great time listening to it.” Under the production wing of Kent Wells (Dolly Parton), Logan’s debut captures both her gleeful spirit and relatable lyrics. “You don’t win best smile in high school without having a reason to share it with everyone. P.S. I also won worst driver (don’t tell my parents!)”
This performer, who shared her childhood years between Florida and Iowa, got her start on the stage at the early age of six as a munchkin in ‘The Wizard of Oz.” It wasn’t until her sophomore year of high school before she shifted her focus from musical theater to singer. “My nana [grandmother on my mom’s side] was a great singer and when I got to sing in front of crowds, I just got wrapped into the interaction with the fans and absolutely loved it.” With a supportive family, Logan began traveling between Nashville and Iowa to work on her album. Upon completion, she had eight songs, all of which were co-written by Logan. Listeners can hear the musical theater background in her approach to melodies and in her unique bends and emphasis on individual syllables. Acting much like an audio diary into her personal life, Logan filled this project with vulnerable accounts of relationships and possibly most important is an inspirational voice for her sister. “You Can Do It Girl” is a track I wrote for my sister. It’s important for her to know that she has the power and the ability to pursue her dreams and I will be beside her the whole way as her cheering squad.”
Logan’s family unit includes her parents and three siblings, a sister (17) and two younger brothers (14 & 11). Her father’s most common saying “No Worries” serves as her mantra for both how this album developed and how she would like listeners to receive it. As a fan of the country genre, she understands the impact that a song can have on your choices. “My dream duet would be with Rascal Flatts, because their song “Stand” is such an inspiration. ‘When push comes to shove, you taste what you’re made of.’ Those are powerful lyrics and I will forever be grateful that I heard them. They shaped me as a person and as an artist. I hope someday that I can do the same for someone else.”
When Logan isn’t honing her craft, her Sunshine State roots shine bright as she enjoys the contrasting likes of speed boating and inner tubing. Either way, it’s clear that this land locked performer is a water child at heart. Those experiences and characteristics were instilled early in her childhood when her family resided in Tampa. Don’t let her youthful appearance fool you; Logan can handle her own in the real world. Revealing, although nervously laughing in embarrassment, she lists her secret talent as being able to get out of speeding tickets. Any listener will agree that there are no citations to be issued in reference to her premiere album. The only exception would be a violation for sparking too many smiles or hair brush karaoke moves in the mirror.
