She’s a singer. She’s a trombone player. She’s a songwriter. She’s a performer.
It would have been a lot easier if Aubrey Logan would have just picked one. But she’s never been one to
be pigeon-holed. She lives her life outside the box and that makes her difficult to define. And that’s OK
with her because she purposely defies definition.
Her Top 5 debut album in 2017 helped establish her as one of the premier young singer-instrumentalists
in the country. Her participation in Dave Koz’ #1 album, Summer Horns in 2018 helped cement her
position. But it was her own #1 album in 2019 that really helped Aubrey Logan become a household
name with music aficionados around the world. Because it was that album, Where the Sunshine is
Expensive, that showed the depth of songwriting that she’s capable of.
In between her recording commitments, Logan finds time to share the stage with Alabama Shakes and
Meghan Trainor and Pharrell Williams and Josh Groban and Dave Koz and The Commodores and Boston
Pops at venues as diverse as Ronnie Scott’s famous jazz club in London to the expansive Hollywood Bowl
in Los Angeles. She’s appeared on Jimmy Kimmel and the Grammys’ Award Show and ABC’s The
Goldbergs. She’s recorded a duet with her childhood hero, Gloria Estefan. She’s won multiple awards at
the Montreux Jazz Festival. She’s beloved by not just the dedicated fans of Postmodern Jukebox, but
she considers the creator, Scott Bradlee, and her colleagues within the collective her true friends. And
she loves performing. But it’s in her writing that we find out who Aubrey Logan really is.
Her title track, LA revealed to the world just how difficult it is to be an artist living in the biggest
entertainment town on the planet. She opened up her soul in the song, Understand. She gave us songs
that told us how much travel takes its toll and songs that tell us what’s truly important in a world that
glorifies superficiality. She even takes us back a few decades with some retro songs that ask us to
remember what it was that first captured our imagination on the radio.
But mostly, Ms. Logan has finally given us a glimpse into the complexity of the mind of the artist. She’s
still known as a world-class singer-instrumentalist. But she’s revealed that there’s so much more.
Aubrey continues to headline sold-out shows and festivals. She continues to wow the crowds at
symphony dates all over the world and she touches us in those rare intimate club shows. And with her
latest album, we now discover that “The Queen of Sass” has depths to which we would never have
