Breakout artist Logan Ledger is debuting a new video for “(I’m Gonna Get Over This) Some Day” via FLOOD Magazine. Watch/share the “kaleidoscopic” video HERE.

Written by T Bone Burnett, “(I’m Gonna Get Over This) Some Day” was a natural fit for Ledger. “He first played it for me in his study the day after I met him and it has stuck with me ever since,” recounts Ledger. “Singing this song feels easy. It feels like something that’s always been there.”

New dates with Lilly Hiatt have been added to Ledger’s tour, please see full schedule below.

Ledger’s self-titled debut album is out now via Electro Magnetic/Rounder Records to much critical acclaim. The album was produced by 13-time GRAMMY AWARD winner T Bone Burnett and embraces a sound that’s stylistically wayward yet deeply grounded in classic songmanship. Purchase the album HERE.

Backed by T Bone Burnett, additional support on the album comes from guitarist Marc Ribot (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello), drummer Jay Bellerose (Willie Nelson, Jackson Browne), bassist Dennis Crouch (Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton) and guitarist/pedal steel player Russ Pahl (Kacey Musgraves, Tyler Childers). Ledger says, “We’re all sort of twirling around each other and creating this great big texture of sound together…. I love how everyone’s constantly improvising, but without ever getting in anybody else’s way.”

Critical praise for Logan Ledger’s self-titled album:

“‘Nobody Knows,’ a solo Logan Ledger composition, is as chilling as some of Hank
Williams’s chilliest, and is sung and arranged accordingly blue. (‘Where goes the light when the day turns to night…Nobody knows, but I know. Cause I’m nobody.’) Mr. Ledger
will not persuade anybody listening of that particular claim, as this striking debut
introduces a definite somebody. This is purposeful and skillful crooning and songwriting,
well aware of the history it joins and adds to.”

“Drenched in steel and oozing barroom authenticity, this is utterly
mesmerizing. Sign me up for the fan club.”

“…what makes Ledger a special talent and what makes his debut a meaningful release is
the way he takes these familiar themes and builds upon them. ‘I Don’t Dream Anymore’ mixes driving roots-rock with a rhythmic, post-punk urgency, while ‘Electric Fantasy’ has echoes of the Cure’s ‘Lovesong’ in its chord progression and melody. It makes for truly exciting listening. It also does a couple other things.

First, these highlight the deceptive flexibility in Ledger’s voice. His croon is
perfect for tackling fare that evokes Willie Nelson or The Byrds, but it also possesses a
certain timelessness to it that makes it ideally suited for forays into a wide spectrum of sounds. The second thing these tracks do concerns music in general, because they highlight the way country and jangly folk-pop have seeped into seemingly dissimilar genres of music and have inspired the continued evolution of music.”

“Drifting in with the fog from the Bay Area, singer-songwriter Logan Ledger is charmingly scruffy at first appearance. But when he lets his voice loose, it’s chill-inducting—his knack for rubbery hard country melodies conjure the ghosts of ’50s singers like George Jones.”

“Logan’s smooth, near-operatic voice initially draws you into his shimmering noir world of desolate souls wandering deserted, rain-drenched backstreets before dawn. But songs such as ‘Invisible Blue’ with its reverbed baritone guitar and color-saturated lyric of ‘There’s a blue you can’t see/but boy you can feel,’ and the tearful, pedal steel sobbing ‘Tell Me a Lie,’ sung by a tearful, heartbroken protagonist, show that Logan writes ‘em as well as he sings ‘em. Kudos to roots-producing maestro T Bone Burnett who realizes Ledger’s idiosyncratic vision with clean, unfussy production and backing from longtime associates such as guitarist Marc Ribot and drummer Jay Bellerose.”

“On April 3rd, one of the most anticipated voices to come on the scene in years will make his full-length debut with a self-titled effort. Along with a select handful of others, this release has to be considered one of the most sought after in 2020.”
