From the corner stages of low-lit blues bars, to the spell-binding spectacles on theatre bills, Logan Richard’s beckoning melodies have swiftly risen to prominence in the Canadian music scene. As a Prince Edward Island-born songwriter, guitarist, and producer, Richard has built and continues to hone his catalogue of original music, the likes of which have already been featured in noteworthy TV and film sync placements, such as: Netflix’s Ginny & Georgia, City TV’s Hudson and Rex, and Hockey Night in Canada.
Since launching his career as a solo artist in 2017, Richard has had significant success with radio play on both CBC Radio 1 and 2, and has amassed over one million streams on Spotify alone. His latest EP, Learning to Love (2023), showcases a tender, reflective side to his songwriting— an impressive variation to his previously well-established high-energy pop hits. The evolution in this work is showcased brilliantly as he bears his heart and soul without sacrificing the production of his previous works.
As a three-time Music PEI Award winner and ECMA nominee, Richard has been widely recognized for his musical contributions, including his nomination for 2020’s Music PEI SOCAN Songwriter of the Year, and for his achievement in winning the New Artist of the Year in the same cycle. In 2022, he was selected as a participant for the RBCxMusic “First Up” Program which saw him take his honed-in, lively stage show to showcases and industry events across the Maritimes. In that same year, his self-titled debut album won Music PEI’s Soul/Pop/R&B Recording of the Year.
Richard is becoming a sought-after session and live guitar player, and his career continues to show signs of remarkable growth, spanning genres of: Blues, Pop, R&B, and Indie Rock. This year, with the direction of acclaimed Songwriter and Producer, David Myles, Logan Richard's sophomore album is well underway and set for release in 2024.
