Once in a red moon, an artist emerges on the scene as if fully formed. Born on the Six Nations Reserve and raised in the small ghost town of Brantford, Ontario - Logan Staats started writing and performing music in his early teens.
From a young age, Logan’s haunting and distinct voice has won him multiple opportunities to share the stage with acts like Buffy Sainte-Marie, Keith Secola and Mumford and Sons, to name a few.
Still a young man, Logan is regarded as an accomplished, multi-nominated and an award winning artist. Forever a student of great music - Staats enjoys jamming, collaborating and learning from his contemporaries and other recording artists. A great example is a powerful late night live off the floor version of Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice” in collaboration with peer Terra Lightfoot.
Logan’s live performances are juxtaposed by a level of self-possession and control that still wildly careen through emotions of sadness, hope, longing and joy.
A product of passion, compulsion and tireless musical commitment - Logan’s songs are his own. Armed with his guitar and harmonica, he has transitioned from running the weekend bar circuit to playing sold out ven-ues across Canada including his favourite venue, The Sanderson Centre, in his hometown.
