"Bryan White"

"Logan Heftel is a great artist and a wonderful singer. I can't wait to see what he's gonna do." - Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter


"Thomas Day"

Logan Heftel, "If It Does"

"This first CD has an experienced, older-than-the-artist-has-lived feel. Logan's complicated compositions make this a surprisingly interesting record. Most of the arrangements are wrapped around acoustic instruments, with Logan’s big, relaxed vocals holding the center stage. The basic band is acoustic guitar, electric bass, harmonica, and drums; occasionally spiced by a an R&B or marching band horn section.

"The sound of the record is a little erratic, in the way that many Van Morrison mixes seem slightly off-kilter. The thirteen tunes swing from traditional folk to jazz influenced to straight-forward and slightly funky pop. Logan’s sense of humor is prominent in both the lyrics and the instrumental arrangements (as in the end of “What a Way to Be”). The general feel is “easy listening,” but that sells the whole short (nowhere better illustrated than by the opening “Tell to All”). There is more to this than background noise, Logan has something to say and the story is in both the music and the lyrics. I expect to hear more from this voice." - Wirebender Audio Systems


"Jonathan Nicholson"

"There are few musicians that give me as much joy to listen to as Logan Heftel. His music is filled with an emotional depth and intelligence that evokes a strong curiousity in the listener to try and perceive the world from Logan's perspective. He seems to have an innate knack with creating a personal connection with his audience."
- Fingerstyle Guitarist & Recording Artist


"David Rachac"

“[If It Does] may be one of the best independent releases that I have heard - a bright mixture of acoustic folk and radio-ready folk-pop with a maturity far beyond his nineteen years.
“…It is rare for an artist who is so early in his career to merge thoughtful songwriting, guitar playing and singing into such a professional package, and do it with seemingly little effort. Just a few seconds into his first song, I was amazed at how complete his live performance was - his finger-picking style sounded bright and lively, his voice warm and expressive, and he played harmonica with an impressive mixture of facile speed and restraint.”

"Isamu Jordan"

“Heftel's songwriting shows the sort of wisdom that should take twice his years to acquire.” - The Spokesman-Review


"Jack McNally"

“Logan’s music is mature, finely crafted and deep beyond his years. He has a gift for writing lyrics that probe the soul. His guitar work is tasteful and inventive and his voice well suited to his ballads. One of the most talented young artists I have heard in a long time.” - Co-founder - McNally Smith College of Music
