Logan J. Parker just released a new video for “I Don’t Wanna Go,” from her upcoming, self-titled record.

Logan J. Parker takes her cue from early influences like Memphis Minnie and Screaming Jay Hawkins. These days, she might still throw the occasional blues cover into the mix, but her set list is mostly drawn from a deep well of highly original songs, epic tales of love, loss, and betrayal.

Whether performing solo with her beloved Gretsch, or working in the studio with her regular wrecking crew of A-list musicians, Logan has a knack of crafting addictive hooks that tend to lodge in the recesses of an unwary brain. And in a music industry where the number of ‘writers’ involved in each major hit currently averages nine, she is that rare thing: a 100 percent rights owner and a fierce defender of her art.

“This song is for everyone stuck in shit jobs they hate,” she explains. “I wrote it while working in a clothes shop on minimum wage. I couldn’t face another day there, so I quit and wrote this instead. At least I got a great song out of it!”
