Musical duo prepared to get freaky at Tractorgrease

Musical duo Logan and Nathan are bringing their unique sound to Chilliwack, when they hit the intimate stage at the Tractorgrease Cafe in February.

The pair, who met in Canmore, Alberta, began playing together to overcome cabin fever while stuck for two weeks behind massive flood waters in 2013. From there they moved to Vancouver Island, and while they worked on independent projects, they became a couple and eventually formed the band, which allows them the opportunity to explore their music with each other’s help.

“On the surface, a lot of songs are structured” says Logan. “But we’re experimenting with all these sounds and audience engagement. We bring in a whole new element.”

And, Logan adds, Tractorgrease is the perfect place for the pair. “I like interacting with the audience, and we can do that there. We’re a bit more experimental, but the small stage allows us to build a relationship between performer and audience. People get our awkward jokes a bit more,” she adds with a chuckle.

Although they both sing, Logan and Nathan are also experts when it comes to stringed instruments, with Nathan on guitar and Logan on mandolin and banjo. “Logan’s primary (instrument) is tenor banjo,” explains Nathan. “The kind with four strings. Her’s is a nice orbed one from the 1920s, and it sounds beautiful.”

And while the duo sticks to acoustic instruments, Nathan says their music has a spectral sound to it. “We call it Freak-Folk: we use a amplifiers and peddles, and it’s more psychedelic.”

While Logan and Nathan have both produced music on their own, they’ve been steadily working on building a library of songs for their combined sound. They’ve already released an EP, and have been working on a full album for more than 18 months, Chasing Tales and a Few Other Things, which they hope to release this spring.

Logan and Nathan will be at Tractorgrease on Thursday, Feb. 1. Show starts at 7 p.m., and tickets are $12.
