Logan will meet composer Brian Tyler back stage at his concert with the Philharmonia Orchestra in London England on May 7th
Sixteen-year old Logan Jones, an innovative, highly creative, and prolific composer who recently released his second album “Platinum Grooves,” is catching the attention of television productions and music reviewers. Logan is ready to take his music to new heights.
In a recent article feature in 24hrs Vancouver by music reviewer Joe Leary “Teen writing the soundtrack of his life” Leary say “At 16, Vancouver’s Logan Jones is the youngest artist to be featured in this column. A multi-instrumentalist, he’s already built a sizeable library of music as he pursues film — and already has a television soundtrack in the works”.
Catching the attention of television producers/hosts Logan is currently working on the theme music for two television series “BC Brew on Tap” and “Get Cooking with the Stars.”
Logan’s interest in soundtracks is inspired by musician Brian Tyler, who has composed music for feature films including “Iron Man 3,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Furious 7.” Since the article Brian Tyler has posted Logan’s story to his audience. Logan will meet Brian in London, England backstage after his concert conducting the Philharmonia Orchestra on May 7th. Logan hopes to have a career like Brian one day.
Grammy-nominated Nashville’s songwriter Carey Ott says of Logan “He is tapping the pure well of creativity”. Logan’s music has also been described as cross genre, pop music accessible and undeniably interesting.
“Platinum Grooves” was forged on the site of a platinum mine in construction with a string quartet during one of Logan’s many trips to South Africa. He also worked with Free State University teacher/producer John Smit to explore African based rhythms to help add new dimensions to his music.
“Platinum Grooves” includes over 70 minutes of music composed by Logan. The sounds include keyboard, percussions, and chords that cross-different genres in a jazz, funk and rock guitar. String quartets can also be found seamlessly knitted into some of the tracks. Each layer of music has been added with a distinct purpose. Logan’s arrangement of sounds is dazzling in profound and affecting ways.
Platinum Grooves is an album of music that reflects Logan’s unique style, creativity and journey. In this album, the tracks “6474” and “Twenty Three” are named after their complex time signatures while “Fight to be Free” gives off a struggling effect. Its theme has connections to Logan’s travel to South Africa and the history of that country. The feel of David Gilmour’s legendary guitar style was Logan’s guitar inspiration for his track “High School Spy”. The dimension of a classically trained string quartet was added to the Platinum Grooves 5-9 sessions at the 1915 building of Soundsphere Studios in Bloemfontein, South Africa. In Platinum Groove 9 the sounds of hammering metal and vehicles gives ethos to the mine building in Africa.
Logan’s love for music started at the age of 3 with the French horn as his first instrument. He started playing it by lying on the carpet and playing it sideways. That was enough to fire his passion for music and to take music onto a whole new level in his own signature way. He developed a multifaceted interest in music that has brought him from playing guitar, drums and keyboard to writing and composing his own. Logan is definitely talented, highly creative, deeply passionate, and wise beyond his years.
Logan has worked with musicians from Nashville, London, Vancouver, Toronto, Paris, to South Africa. He has recorded at the famous Fader Mountain (Little Mountain Sound Vancouver) where the greats from Aerosmith to Hedley and Rage Against the Machine have recorded. Logan has also worked with Grammy nominated songwriter Carey Ott. Logan’s inspirations for his music come from rhythms and harmonies of all music types across continents and decades. Music heroes whose work has influenced Logan’s style are Mark Knopfler, Herbie Hancock, Pink Floyd, Sting in addition to the movie music of Brian Tyler. Logan’s first album “Believe” produced by Dunbar Underground Studios was released in 2014 and can be purchased on iTunes. Famous music producer Garth “GGGarth” Richardson at one of Logan’s gigs said, “I can hear his influences and I can hear him inventing for himself many things that have come before”.
Logan takes his inspiration from many experiences. He recently travelled to Honduras for a week in the jungle and a week of diving. Throughout the week, Logan completed underwater survey work and had 9 dives in total, each one at a different site, providing a great variety of coral to explore and new marine life sightings. The trip was a paradise for inspiration – with a waterfall showers and beautifully rich wildlife.
Logan lives in Vancouver, BC and looks forward to more opportunities to write for film, television and video games. Logan composes his music at Dunbar Underground Studios – but also leaves time just to write for fun.
