something of a prodigy… a man that is already showing a maturity and a musical/textural understanding that many simply never find. – BBC
Logan released to rave reviews his first solo album Cognessence (2007) at just 19. His 2016 album Flesh is a beautiful melding of organic instrumentation and experimental electronics. He has written music with Brian Eno, Grace Jones, Ivor Guest, Morcheeba and two albums with Steve Roach. Rich in texture, exploration, method and musicality of the most curious kind, his music is beautiful.
