US-based singer/songwriter Zack Logan releases his debut album Raised By Wolves in preparation for an imminent UK and European tour.
Hailing from Newton, Mississippi Zack Logan was raised on legendary country/folk artists such as John Prine, Townes Van Zandt and Robert Earl Keen. Whilst travelling the southern USA Logan became inspired by his experiences and the people that he met along the way. Subsequently, these encounters and life experiences have fed into the 10 wonderful songs featured on Logan’s debut offering.
Raised By Wolves is a beautiful slice of Americana. Each song on the record is performed on an acoustic guitar, with just Zack’s incredible voice and fiddle accompaniment. The latter of which adds great texture and features prominently alongside Logan’s intricate finger-picking style of guitar play.
The opening track of the album “Annalee” is a stunning love song. The track has also been receiving widespread critical acclaim, with Rolling Stone recently naming the song to be one of their ’10 Best Country & Americana Songs Of The Week’. Upon first listen it’s easy to understand why.
With “I’m Coming Home” Logan perfectly captures the feeling of longing to be back with the special someone in your life; as they say home is where the heart is. Furthermore, heartfelt country ballads such as “Two Weeks At A Time” and “Distance & Missin’” addresses the same subject but from a slightly different angle.
Logan picks up the pace with his passionate delivery on “Trouble Doing The Right Thing”, which is one of the most up-tempo songs on the album. On the other hand, “Home I Call Place” grapples with life in small-town America.
The great country singer/songwriters of our time all have one thing in common, and that’s their exceptional storytelling ability and this is something which Zack Logan has in spades. You can’t help but be drawn into his lyrics, Logan writes from the heart. With Raised By Wolves Zack Logan has delivered an outstanding debut record featuring a collection of country/folk songs covering many topics that we can all relate to.
