Logan McKillop is a folk/roots singer-songwriter and storyteller from Onanole, MB. Equally skilled as a wordsmith and an astonishing guitarist, every song is an invitation into the best of both worlds. He is unafraid to delve into what is real, exploring the highs and lows of the human condition with absolute honesty. Supported by his unmistakable guitar prowess, he leaves no audience without laughter, heartache, and a gentle reminder that life doesn't always work out the way you think it will.
Logan’s sophomore album “Anchorless” (released on March 29th, 2019) is a collection of songs that display his maturity as an artist. Carefully arranged with a Manitoba roster of musicians, the 10 track album comes to life with the addition of a string section, piano, drums, bass, pedal steel, vibraphone, clarinet, banjo, mandolin, and a whole lot of harmony. Recorded with co-producer Scott Nolan (The Song Shop, Winnipeg, MB), engineers Jamie Sitar (Outta Town Sound) and Madeleine Roger (Roseberry Records) and meticulously mixed & mastered by David Travers-Smith (found.sound.toronto), “Anchorless” takes the listener through a heartfelt reminder of what it means to live.
Hailing from a family of musicians, Logan has been surrounded by music from the very beginning. To further his natural abilities, he enrolled in the Jazz guitar program at Brandon University. Following his studies, he set out to pursue a career as a touring musician.
Logan released his 20 song debut album “Prairie Sky” in March 2013 (produced by Lewis Melville in Guelph, Ontario). The album has received praise and radio play from a number of Canadian radio stations (CBC, Blues & Roots Radio) and has received positive reviews from notable folk music magazines (Penguin Eggs).
Logan has toured extensively in support of "Prairie Sky" and "Anchorless." He has performed in every province and territory in Canada, and has also toured throughout Europe and the UK. In addition to his career as a solo artist, Logan has been featured as a guitarist on many recording projects and tours (with Micah Erenberg, Carly Dow, Madeleine Roger, Kevin Roy, Sebastian Owl, Brady Enslen).
With tens of thousands of touring km’s under his belt, and a newly released sophomore album, Logan has covered a lot of ground with no signs of slowing down.
