Julia Logan

Musician — Stockholm

Name, where are you from? 
My name is Julia Logan. I’m from Dalarö, an island outside of Stockholm. I also spent a few of my teenage years in Laguna Beach in southern California.

What do you do?
I’m an artist and songwriter, I also have a degree in architecture.  

Describe your style in three words? 
Not three words, but my style is very inspired by Francoise Hardy, Ali Macgraw and Joan Didion.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
This is a hard one, but I think unexpected and strange circumstances make certain concerts very special. My friends and I saw Phosphorescent in Stockholm in 2014, it was in the middle of summer and it was like forty degrees inside. We were all sweating profusely including the band, but everybody was in it together and just accepted the heat and enjoyed the music. In the end, Matthew Houck (the singer) handed out beers to everybody in the audience to cool off.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
Patti Smith. I’ve seen her live a few times and she truly has an amazing stage presence. She plays off of the audience and creates a dialogue with them in such a natural way. The first time I saw her live she improvised a poem out of nowhere, wish I could do that! Fleetwood Mac. They’re all individually such great musicians and songwriters. I actually discovered the Peter Green albums before the Stevie Nicks/Lindsey Buckingham era and love them equally. Wish I could travel back in time and hear Peter Green’s weeping guitar!

Which subcultures have influenced you?
Hippies and Beatniks.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Eve Babitz. She’s an evocative writer who draws from her experiences living in L.A. during the '60s and '70s and describes the cultural scene during this era.

Of all the independent venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
I got to play at a historical venue in Stockholm called Nalen. It was a special experience because I had never played for such a big audience. It’s a classic Stockholm institution, even my Grandma used to go dancing there back in the '50s.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Bobb Trimble. He’s a quite unknown artist who released music in the late '70s. I stumbled upon his music when I was listening to an interview with Aldous Harding who mentioned him as an inspiration and he has really beautiful and timeless melodies.

The first track you played on repeat?
I honestly can’t remember, but it was probably 'Barbie Girl' by Aqua.

A song that defines the teenage you?
I started learning guitar when I was thirteen, and I was listening to John Mayer’s live album 'Where the Light Is' a lot and trying to learn all the songs. We all have our teenage phases, and you could say I was obsessed.

One record you would keep forever?
'On The Beach' by Neil Young. It’s the definition of mellow.

A song lyric that has inspired you?
'Woman of Heart and Mind' by Joni Mitchell.

A song you wished you had written?
'Woman of Heart and Mind' by Joni Mitchell.

Best song to turn up loud?
'Tiny Dancer' by Elton John.

A song people wouldn’t expect you to like?
'Sign of the Times' by Harry Styles.

The song that would get you straight on the dance floor?
'If It Wasn’t For The Nights' by ABBA.

Best song to end an all-nighter?
'Come on Eileen' by Dexys Midnight Runners obviously! It’s a classic.

Any new bands you are into at the moment?
Sylvie.
