LOGAN LEDGER SET TO RELEASE EPONYMOUS DEBUT ALBUM
LOGAN LEDGER SET TO RELEASE EPONYMOUS DEBUT ALBUM APRIL 3 VIA ELECTRO MAGNETIC/ROUNDER RECORDS PRODUCED BY 13-TIME GRAMMY WINNER T BONE BURNETT
Rising Bay-area-bred singer-songwriter Logan Ledger will release his highly anticipated self-titled debut album on April 3 via Electro Magnetic/Rounder Records. Produced by 13-time GRAMMY AWARD winner T Bone Burnett, Logan Ledger embraces the roots of country music while looking through a dark and surrealistic lens—a sound that’s stylistically wayward yet deeply grounded in classic songmanship.
“We were pretty much on the same page when it came to what kind of album we were going to make: something that drew from the traditional folk and country music I’ve loved since childhood, but with a good portion of rock and roll and psychedelia thrown in,” Ledger says of working with Burnett. “I’ve always believed that in order to create something new with purpose, one must be steeped in the past and work from within the tradition. This record represents the manifestation of so many of my lifelong dreams about music.”
Last fall, the Nashville-based artist, dubbed “a modern George Jones” by Rolling Stone, released his EP I Don’t Dream Anymore. Two songs from the EP, “Invisible Blue” and “I Don’t Dream Anymore,” will be featured on Ledger’s forthcoming full length.
Backed by T Bone Burnett, additional support on the album comes from guitarist Marc Ribot(Tom Waits, Elvis Costello), drummer Jay Bellerose (Willie Nelson, Jackson Browne), bassist Dennis Crouch (Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton) and guitarist/pedal steel player Russ Pahl (Kacey Musgraves, Tyler Childers). Ledger says, “We’re all sort of twirling around each other and creating this great big texture of sound together…. I love how everyone's constantly improvising, but without ever getting in anybody else’s way.”
Ledger will join Secret Sisters on tour across the U.S. this March and April, before joining Lilly Hiatt later this spring.
