Aubrey Logan, a winner of the top vocal competition at the Montreux Jazz Festival, electrifies fans with her stock-in-trade staccato phrasings and a four-octave vocal range that reaches to the stars!
“Her range is phenomenal and there is absolutely no genre this woman can’t handle. While there are jazzy undertones in each song she performs, there are also unexpected mash-ups and a unique mixing of styles. Aubrey’s songs are the type that you want to listen to in the car on a seriously loud volume, while belting out unattainable notes.” — Claire Hagen
Aubrey shifts effortlessly from upbeat songs that make you want to move to slower songs that pull on the heart strings of her audience, but its more than the lyrics and the sound – it’s the way Aubrey performs them. When her heart is bearing itself to you on stage you can feel it all around the room.
Diverse, distinct and dangerously sassy, Aubrey is an outstanding world-class talent who rubber-stamps the industry with an indelible vintage mark. She is an artist with vocals that range from deep and electric to delicate and vulnerable. She breaks the traditional genre barriers by combining jazz vocals with R&B, neo-soul, pop, and a touch of rock. The singer/instrumentalist/composer dazzles audiences wherever she’s seen and heard around the globe.
“She rolls together jazz, pop, rock, rap and the trombone, adds a spice of theater from her acting, and creates a show that is unstoppable and unforgettable… Logan’s vocal skills are awesome – how she can sing so fast, never missing a beat or a syllable, while moving up and down the scales and changing rhythms in mid-bar is almost beyond belief.” — Patrick O’Heffernan
“A phenomenal young singer, songwriter, trombonist that truly puts her own unique spin on music.” — Scott Bradlee
“Her new album “Impossible” showcases Aubrey’s incredible talent to combine a four octave vocal range with unparalleled musicianship and unbounded creativity.“ — www.thewimn.com
Aubrey’s debut album was released this year and is appropriately titled ‘Impossible’. According to the artist, she chose this title because she was told it was ‘impossible’ to mix the range of genres that she, successfully, mixes. She dares to take any song, of any genre and deliver it in a way that would have made Ella Fitzgerald or Billie Holliday proud.
“I have an affinity for taking pop songs and turning them into something jazzy. All of us growing up through the internet age are not just influenced by one city, one era, one group of people, but everything’s at our fingertips. And of course we’re going to swing, and do some Latin-feel things. And then what’s really near to my heart: hip hop grooves, R&B jazz.” — Aubrey Logan
Aubrey Logan is jazz, yes, but she can’t be defined by jazz alone. Hear her tap into the graces of a neo-soul ballad, then claim your seat in First Class as she pilots a flight of classic rock. Most people wouldn’t believe a successful mash-up can be made from a classic opera song and jazz or that early nineties hip-hop/rap and jazz make a winning combination. Aubrey has proved it.
When asked whether she thinks that jazz “needed” to change in order to stay contemporary, Aubrey says: “I don’t think anything needs to do anything. I think it’s whatever the artist likes the most. I think it’s really difficult to be anything but yourself… If you just wanted to play Dixieland, play Dixieland! If you just wanted to play funk, play funk! I personally would get bored, so it’s not what I do”.
Aubrey Logan, a Seattle native currently residing in Los Angeles, is a graduate of Boston’s renown Berklee College of Music and has toured the world with Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox. She has performed on numerous stages and jazz festivals in the United States and Europe. At IDeeJazz, you can enjoy her performing songs from her album “Impossible” and several adaptations of her favourite hits.
