LORETTA'S ARTIST OF WEEK 1/5/15
He’s a new voice for every man. Actually, make him an honest new voice for every man. That would be country-rock singer, songwriter and guitarist Logan Mize. Just listen to his current single “Can’t Get Away from a Good Time,” which was just released to country radio by his label Arista Nashville.
The anticipation is building, particularly since Mize spent a good part of 2013 behind the camera in a couple of high profile turns on the small screen. The Kansas native serendipitously found himself guest starring in two nationally- watched TV appearances that undoubtedly introduced him to new audiences.
He ended up in a widely viewed “Fabric Of Our Life” cotton commercial with Hayden Panettiere of ABC-TV’s lauded Nashville. Mize and his band are shown performing on stage at Music City’s legendary Station Inn. But there’s more: Mize played himself and sang, also with his band, in an episode of The CW’s hit drama Hart of Dixie starring Rachel Bilson.
Mize, 28, saw both tube assignments as great ways to trumpet his debut national CD release, 2012’s Nobody In Nashville, an auspicious 10 song collection that highlights Mize’s rugged voice, his earthy songs and his ability to merge mainstream country with front porch rock ‘n’ roll.
