Aubrey Logan is currently concluding a national U.S. tour as a featured artist with Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox and has just announced the release of her debut single, “Pistol,” later this month.
“Pistol” is the first single to be released from Logan’s forthcoming debut album, Impossible.
“We titled it Impossible because so many people were saying it couldn’t be done, that we couldn’t pull together an album with such a diversity of styles and genres.”
Indeed, works on the album range from those of Logan’s original compositions to the hip-hop of MC Hammer and the operatic melodies of Georges Bizet.
Striking a vibe not unlike the superspy soundtracks of the ‘60s (think “Bond, James Bond”), “Pistol” targets Logan’s “sassy-chick” side, according to the artist herself, who co-wrote the song with Pam Sheyne.
“Pistol” was recorded in Pasadena, CA, at the studio of producer Dale Becker who brought together an ensemble of musicians to complement Logan’s vocal and instrumental styling. “To create a 007 vintage sound, and even incorporate some of that ‘60s psychedelia, Dale and I layered the vocal and instrumental tracks,” says Logan. “That way, I was able to do my own back-ups and add trombone harmonies.” The drums were layered for a surround effect, and characteristic keyboard sounds of the period were used.
Aubrey’s much anticipated new album demonstrates Aubrey’s genre breaking and electric creativity, successfully mixing jazz with influences of many other musical styles such as pop, rap and R&B. https://youtu.be/RGmh9nodlaw
