about

Produced by Logan Anderson
Mastered by Adam Gonsalves

This album features my best work ever as a musician and producer. Its styles range from acoustic instrumental songs, to rock, to big thematic productions. Yet, the whole album works amazingly well together. You will have a hard time finding a record as diverse as this one. No two songs are alike. At all.

The lyrical content is down-to-earth and extremely transparent. I struggled a lot in my relationships over the past couple years, and many of my downfalls inspired these songs. But I wrote them in a constructive and positive manner.

All sounds, instruments, and vocals are live performances. I create synth sounds out of piano and guitars, many percussion sounds out of random household objects, and the rest out of real instruments. No keyboards, samples, virtual instruments, or drum machines were used at all. I love playing and banging on things, and being able to feel and hear live sounds. This is what helps me write new and better ideas. For me, experimenting is the key to writing songs that I'm happy with.

about

Logan Anderson Ashland, Oregon

I've enjoyed making music since I was 13 years old. It wasn't until late 2013 that I decided to be a bit more persistent, so I released my first album, "Nomad". My favorite part of making music is physically playing and experimenting with different instruments and sounds. I think this aspect helps take my songs in great and unexpected directions. ... more

Track Name: Angel
I hear an angel singing a whisper in the open air
Takes me to my favorite place, the meadow near the hilltop
I want to know the feeling of floating through a misty cloud
'Cause I hear an angel singing
Only she knows where I'm headed

Do you feel alive?
Do you feel alive?
'Cause I know I do
Track Name: What You Need
I was always the angry me
Looking for a chance to be
Another reason to make you not believe
You are worth more than you think
To the people you cannot see
I wrote down that I owed you an apology

I was only thirteen
When I had to stop this misery

Can't stop, brother
Looking for what you need
One song might ease you in
We fight, brother
Thinking we understand
What the future has in store

Do we take the shortest road?
Ditch hope to pass it on?
Do we cling to what makes us not believe?
I found love, a simple calm
When I ran into the night
Without a plan or a care or a hope in sight
Track Name: Breaking Traditions
Break
Break
Break some traditions

So here we are in a melting pot
We got a long way to go before we can't stop
It's backwards we know
Do you live around here?
Did you come too far?
Do you want to sing with us,
And break some traditions?
Break some traditions

We hate being alone
We hate being alone
We hate being alone
We hate being alone
Let's break some traditions
Break some

The day's moving too fast, we don't play don't sing, it never lasts
Who's next in the ages to come? We don't have a clue, but we still want 'em
Life's one big video game, keeping the score, who's name's at the top of the list
Can't relate face to face, bring out the name book, talk with your headphones on
So here we are in a melting pot, got a ways to go before we can't stop
Unsettled minds gotta dress up, you want blue or green? Just take it off
You want anger, sunburn red, get the attention, rumors to mention
You're in a scene of pride, like anybody cared about the fame of your time

Break
Break
Break some traditions
Break some traditions
Break some

I hate being alone, I hate the no-shows, are you ever coming back?
Sit back and relax, not a worry 'bout the promise you made, this time you're a little late
Forget about the follow through, that's it, I'm done being the broken dude
Say hello to a world of fake, a big shame grown to an idle state
We forgot how to sing when the camera's turned off, how to smile without the spotlight on, how to use our voice without our fingertips,
We gotta break out, but we're breaking down the sound of bliss (can you listen to this?), where interaction is real
Spontaneity's gone, come on, let's break it all down

I miss leavin it up to guessing, not knowing, but committed to everything
No chance to avoid the task now, others are waiting, the time is pressing
I feel sorry for the natural minds, holding us up between a tree and a grapevine
Your permanence isn't so permanent, you came too far, and now you're all ours
Welcome to the melting pot, the master plan, do you think that you can understand?
Life's one big video game, we're all the same impassable membranes
Easy to please is all we need, if the need is any, we never mind a freebee
Lose the natural, the interactual, the real, the factual
Track Name: Reaching
I want again to see you, amor
I want again to see you, amor

Like a broken flower in a barren field
As it fights the wind that brought the snow
The weeping voice, the dagger tone
From whence nostalgic whispers blow
Like a panting melody through the sky
Spread thin among the breeze it rides
The nylon sings, the fingers cry
The nylon sings, the fingers cry

I want again to see you, amor
I want again to see you, amor
I want again to see you, amor
I want again to see you, amor
Track Name: In A Dream
I didn't know that I was asleep
When the people came knocking to see what I'd done
When I woke up, all I saw was you

When I laid awake with those songs in my head
They sang me to sleep, they sang to me quietly
They alone could put me into a dream

I want to see you again
I want to see you again
I want to see you again
I want to see you again
In a dream

I wonder where you are
Why you're gone, and how so far
I wonder if you walked into a dream
'Cause so alone it seems
In a dream

I wanted something that I didn't have
I tried too hard and got lost on the way
I can't recall what it feels like to love what I do

Sometimes in life you build a hope
It burns up inside you and leaves a big hole
When I woke up, no one cared but you

I want to see you again
I want to see you again
I want to see you again
I want to see you again
In a dream
Track Name: Better Stop Soon
I ran loose with a happy heart
I ran loose with a happy heart
To the other side where the grass was green

I ran loose with a broken heart
I ran loose with a broken heart
Then I crossed the fence where the grass was green

Stolen your love
Sick of your selfless dependence
Taken for granted again

We're coming down hard this time
I don't always need what I think I do
We're coming down hard this time
And I better stop soon

I broke out with a stolen heart
I broke out with a stolen heart
To the other side where the grass was green

Quick is a lust for something too easy to have

I broke down with a broken heart
I broke down with a broken heart
Then I crossed the fence where the grass was green
I can't commit to a fate that tells me I'm not independent
That instinct is weaker than love

We're coming down hard this time
I don't always need what I think I do
We're coming down hard this time
And I better stop soon

When you're love turns to lust on the run
You better be strong
Track Name: Drive
I will not take your weight to carry

I want so much more
Suck it up and take control
I want to feel that you are mine
Here we sit just wasting time
Tell me that you need to cry
Let it out, 'cause I don't mind
Tell me that you need a break
I'll take you out, and we'll just go...

Drive
You are mine

Drive
You are mine

As long as you wait
I'll keep wearing these worn out shoes
(come on now, your suffering tastes so smooth)
I'm a stubborn hippie
Stuck in the coldest side of me
(little boy, forgotten how to mend his blues)
Whenever you hold me
(come on now, your suffering feels so smooth)
I think of the vow I made to you
(this time, this time you took me too far down)
I will put you before me
(little boy, forcing you to make you choose)
Oh how I wish I'd told the truth
(little liar boy woke up this time)

Let's just drive
You are mine
Track Name: Kyra
Up the trail again to find my light
Rose the morning sun, the shadow of my lifeline
You found me near the top, comatose
You know I'll try again, I know I'm getting so close

Left you on your own for a twilight ride
Left you waiting for a shadow in a black night
I was on my way to a dreamer's fall
I was on my way to find a man I never knew

Mercy take me in, I thought I had it this time
Mercy take me in, tell me that I got it right
Move on, move on, move on
I don't need you this time
Move on, move on, move on
I don't need you one more night

Caught you on your way to find your light
Thought you'd want to stay, or doesn't it feel right?
Kill your mourning love, and love you will
I left you on your own, and that just kills me so
Track Name: Nomads
I can run the length of shadows
On the road and in the sky
I am powered by discretion
Always moving always free

Come with me, we'll flee the city
Plant our hearts in earth unknown
Feed our souls with rich ambition
Always growing, always free

I don't need a place in a big life game
I turn myself away
I take my feet to a far away place I run to
I can find love in an empty field
Where life awaits the sun
Where I can be the hands that choose to make that life grow

I can hear my lover singing
Music of my eager mind
Lovers thrive and lovers wander
Seek to thrill and live to find
Track Name: Falling Down
Goodbye winter, now it's springtime
I've been thinking of the day when you took me for a ride
Drove to the country, looked for a steep road
Sometimes we couldn't stop quite fast enough

I really miss falling down
I really miss the bruises
I really miss falling down
I really miss my friends

It's the time of year when adventures begin
I've been thinking of the day that we fell straight through the sky
Screams washed out as we left the airplane
Then we plummeted towards the ground at holy crap speed

I really miss falling down
I really miss the view
I really miss falling down
I really miss my friends

The leaves grown out and the fruits are forming
I've been thinking of the day that we made juice from the vine
We didn't know what we were doing
But a juice so good and the mess cleaned up just fine

I really miss hanging out
I really miss hanging out
I really miss falling down
I really miss my friends
Track Name: Let's Have Some Fun
We aint got no sorrows we can't overrun
We'll start a war, we'll pick a fight, beat ourselves to the ground
We'll kiss the day, we'll make a joke, tell the villain he lost again
Our own minds take control, they're what hold us back anymore
