ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Justin Logan is an Oklahoma multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer. As obsessive as he is talented, Logan brings something new and exciting to the ever-steady Oklahoma scene. Popular Oklahoma music blog Make Oklahoma Weirder described the live experience as: “a combination of pop, rock, and soul into a slick blend that helps him stand out from other singer-songwriters. At Norman Music Fest, he and his band caught up with friends and electrified the Bluebonnet Bar Stage with a groove-filled late Thursday night set.”
Described as “one of Oklahoma’s best and brightest” by Oklahoma Songwriter’s Podcast, Logan splits his time between producing records in his Ada-based studio, playing guitar for Chance Anderson Band, and pumping out his own music.
