Jazz/pop vocalist/trombonist Aubrey Logan announces her new single "L.A." from her highly-anticipated sophomore album Where The Sunshine is Expensive. Where The Sunshine Is Expensive, a love letter to her adopted hometown of Los Angeles, drops March 22 on Resonance Records. After a series of sold-out California shows wraps March 19, Logan returns to New York for an extensive run at the famed Birdland Jazz Club, April 10 through April 13.
"L.A." is a song that speaks for itself. It’s loaded with clichés about the city that are also truths based in Logan’s observations, eavesdropping in a coffee shop and driving down the I-5. “On the surface, my relationship with the city is love/hate. But to be real, it’s love/love,” Logan says. Her stark, and hilarious honesty about the city is captured in this song’s opening lines, “I have a tan in January, I make six figures and I’m broke / Oh the smog, it ain’t so scary. And the sunset, well it sure puts on a show.” Where the Sunshine Is Expensive was recorded live at the legendary East West Studios in Hollywood, in the very same room where Frank Sinatra recorded “My Way.” It all happened in front of a live studio audience over two days, with world-class musicians including guest appearances by jazz legend Dave Koz and vocalist Casey Abrams.
Logan is commonly referred to as “The Queen of Sass,” as her concerts are a mix of excellent musicality, jaw-dropping vocals, expert trombone-playing, and a breathtaking array of originals and original takes on cover songs. Her debut album Impossible shot to the top 10 on the iTunes, Billboard and Amazon charts, and her 2017 track “Habenera” was included in Amazon’s Best of 2017 Jazz Tracks. Her appearance on Summer Horns II, from A to Z (as a special guest of Dave Koz on Concord Records) became the #1 selling Contemporary Jazz Album.
Logan has shared the stage with numerous luminaries including Pharrell Williams, The Boston Pops, Josh Groban and countless others. She has performed more than 250 shows since 2016, touring as a guest star with Postmodern Jukebox, with Dave Koz and his all-star lineup along with selling out her own shows in venues all over the US and Europe. She will perform select shows in NY and California in support of Where The Sunshine Is Expensive, and will also be featured on Dave Koz and Friends at Sea in Australia (with Tower of Power, Bebe Winans and other stellar performers).
