Kim Logan

Kim Logan arose from the swamps and beaches of Sarasota, Florida after a decade in the opera industry, to write songs and make records in Nashville.
With her education from the Berklee College of Music, and years of the kind of hands-on learning you can only get in honky tonks and on highways, Kim flexes her artistic muscles in every medium of art possible. In addition to the release of her debut self-titled album, Kim has penned published poetry and essays, consulted on and served as muse for a fashion designers and vintage curators, and collaborated with everyone from filmmakers, to burlesque and hoop dancers, to portrait artists, in interdisciplinary displays of performance art.
Now working on new music out of Sputnik Studio in Nashville, produced and developed by the formidable sonic wizard Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton), Kim continues to innovate, reinvent, and create from nothing. Kim is also an ensemble/comprimario singer with the Nashville Opera company, and can be seen in productions throughout their festival season.
A classic, craftsman’s songwriting sensibility, paired with sonic homage to each unique sub-genre which influenced her, makes for Kim’s gap-bridging, line-blurring, time-traveling sound.
