Julia Logan calls for simpler, slower, and more forgiving times with New Single ‘Mirrors’

Sincere and warm, the dreamy folk-pop of Julia Logan finds her beauty in small moments of human longing — to connect, to love, to understand. With a voice at once both comforting and piercing she seems to be calling for simpler, slower, and more forgiving times in a world that seems to be careening out of order. Growing up on a small Swedish island outside of Stockholm, she got her start singing in a local church choir. After spending a few of her teenage years in southern California, where her mother’s from, she learned the guitar from a local hippie and started writing.  The music heard on Julia Logan’s debut album, Everly Foreverly, was made in close collaboration with First Aid Kit’s producer, Daniel Bengtson. Together with them in the studio, they brought in American drummer Kyle Crane, guitarist Peter Morén, Sofia Kristensen on piano and backup vocals, and a featured duet-cover with Nina Persson. Teaming up again with her producer and co-writer Daniel Bengtson, Julia’s sophomore album explores themes of personal fears and changes, isolation, loss, getting older, hope, and finding your place in the world. The album will be called “Faraway Nearby,” inspired by the painter Georgia O’keeffe. During the writing and recording process, Julia and Daniel took influences from Fleetwood Mac, Midlake, Bruce Springsteen, and Lucio Battisti. Many of the songs were written on piano and acoustic guitar — owing to a sonic mood that evokes feelings of yearning melancholy and hope.
