His haunting voice is distinct, wildly immediate. The lyrics, strung along by raw and honest melodies, are filled with character and life. He’s more than a guitar player, or a vocalist, or a musician. He’s a story-teller. And his name is Logan Staats.
The Mohawk, Turtle clan songster was born on Six Nations of the Grand River Territory and raised in the nearby ghost town of Brantford, Ontario. Guitar and harmonica in hand, the twenty-something Staats is well known at local bars, and more and more live shows across Turtle Island (United States and Canada) mean a growing fan-base with international potential.
Staats’ songs feel like they belong to him. His presence says clearly, “Here I am.”
Staats realized what music could be sneaking into local bars as a teen. There, he marvelled at the effect musicians had on their audience. He began to write and performed for the first time as an awkward but earnest 16 year old. As they say, the rest was “written.”
Now, the young multi-instrumentalist produces passionate and compulsive music. Sadness and joy animate his performances, and Staats takes stages with an aura of inevitability, capturing not only audiences, but the feeling he had so many years ago watching local artists on stage.
“Good Bye Goldia,” Staats’ first full-length, solo studio album was released on Aboriginal Solidarity Day, June 21, 2015.
