Following on from her stunning performances at Country2Country and Nashville Meets London, Logan Brill returns to London for two appearances at the debut Country Music Week. Armed with her debut UK single, World Still Round, it is clear that the Tennessee native has mainstream UK success firmly in her sights. We caught up with her to take a trip down musical memory lane.
What song reminds you most of your childhood?
Vincent by Don McLean. My Dad used to play it for my sister and I every night to help us fall asleep.
Which song inspired you to become a musician/singer?
It’s hard to pick just one, but the first song I heard that made me want to perform was Walking in Memphis by Marc Cohn. The first time I ever performed live was at my elementary school talent show, and I loved that song so much I got up and sang it completely acapella.
Which song do you wish you had written?
Send it On Down by Lee Ann Womack (written by Chris Knight and David Leone). The melody is stunning and the lyrics are so vulnerable and honest.
Which artist/band has been the most inspirational to you?
Bonnie Raitt is probably my biggest influence. She has such a powerful voice and a commanding presence on stage. I always hope to channel some of that when I perform.
Which song/album currently dominates your attention?
I can’t get enough of the latest Bruno Mars record. It’s just such a feel good record, classic and fresh all at the same time.
Who would you most like to collaborate with?
A current act I’d love to collaborate with would be Brothers Osborne. I love their sound, and their live show is incredible. I feel like we share some of the same blues and rock influence so it could be a fun collaboration.
