Josh Logan Biography
Richmond, Kentucky, USA. One of the New Countrys hat brigade with a difference - his hat is of the Humphrey Bogart variety. Logans favourite country performer was Mel Street and his own vocals were very close to the latters. He had the misfortune of having his single, I Made You A Woman For Somebody Else, covered by Conway Twitty, and thereby lost any possible success. He eventually made the US charts with Everytime I Get To Dreamin. His debut album included Streets Easy Lovin Kind and the good-natured Somebody Paints The Wall: Everytime I make my mark, somebody paints the wall. There was an excellent cover by George Jones under the title, Somebody Always Paints The Wall, but Logan disappeared for several years before bouncing back with 1996s Something Strange. Another lengthy gap ensued before the release on his own label Gentle Rain in 2004.
