Logan has performed at Eric Clapton‘s Crossroads, SXSW, the Dallas International Guitar Festival and on the final Vans Warped tour. He’s as comfortable working in the studio as he is on stage, whether creating reimagined drum covers, or recording an original album at 15 years old with iconic producer Sylvia Massy (Tool, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashing Pumpkins). Logan’s recent recording sessions include tracking drums on the title track of the new SCOOB! (Scooby Doo) movie. Though well-versed in a wide variety of playing styles, Logan’s adoration of jazz, fusion and funk drives him to rise to the level of drumming’s most elite players, while developing a sound that is uniquely his own. He is skilled in Ableton and Logic, as well as in the use of tracks, triggers and electronic drums. Additionally, Logan possesses perfect pitch; an ability that allows unique support of and communication with singers, bandmates and producers.
