Logan Todd is a freelance session drummer and producer currently working in Nashville, Tennessee with producers Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse, Norah Jones) and John Rausch (Taylor Swift, Moon Taxi, Hudson Taylor)
Logan Todd grew up in Memphis, TN: musical mecca for roots music springing from the fertile delta surrounding the city.
His groove tucks in just behind the beat, like the drummers he admired so much growing up. His parents would sneak him into clubs to absorb blues and soul standards played by Memphis recording legends like the Hodges Brothers and the Memphis Horns. On these quests for live music, Logan found himself drawn to the greasy bounce of the drummers on Beale Street. The first drummers he fell in love with were local working pros: Paul Taylor and Harry Peel (RIP). Paul, a super creative multi instrumental lefty with an amazing ear. Harry, the barrel chested locomotive engine powering local Americana legends, The River Bluff Clan.
Logan sat in at several Beale Street clubs throughout his teens, before attending music school at Belmont University in Nashville. He studied under legendary drummers Chester Thompson, Zoro, Derico Watson, and Todd London. In 2016, two days after graduating college, Logan boarded a plane bound for Europe with LA born, Nashville bred, blues rockers, The Voodoo Fix. They toured Europe twice in as many years. Between runs with The Voodoo Fix, Logan began touring and recording with the Americana group, Jason Lee McKinney Band. Todd's first extended run with the band took him to the Middle East and Africa where he played outdoor shows in the sweltering heat for soldiers stationed abroad. In 2018, Jason Lee McKinney Band played the sold out Piknik Festival in Mragowo, Poland to an energized crowd of 8,000! While keeping a healthy road schedule Logan formed a group with long time collaborator, Patrick Sewalk. The two co-wrote, produced, and recorded an atmospheric, song driven album entitled "Opus Uno".
Whether drumming or producing, Logan maintains a consistent recording calendar in Nashville; working as the go to drummer for producers Jacquire King (Modest Mouse, Kings of Leon, Norah Jones) and John Rausch (Moon Taxi, Taylor Swift, Hudson Taylor). Logan's most recently credited as the primary drummer on Irish singing duo Hudson Taylor's "Loving Everywhere I Go" album, which debuted at number one on the Irish pop charts. Logan Todd's drumming is creative, groove driven, musical, and consistent. At 26, he is actively pursuing growth and improvement every time he sits behind the kit. He is a determined young player, poised to succeed with a gracious attitude and an undeniable passion for drumming.
