"Danny Socolof speaks about LOGOS"

Wow! its fun and gratifying to see and feel the several hundred people who’ve joined this amazing journey… all in the first 24 hours. For me, its been a bit longer of a ride …and I get asked now….often…why did you start this thing? (with my buddy Jeff) and what motivated you? well the answer is right below us now….take a look..a close look. What’s so interesting is how an unknown band from St. Louis, a power trio named “Logos” http://www.myspace.com/logosrock who feature a lead guitarist whose double neck chops are really sharp… they get positioned between two mega stars. So; look at this: here they sit between two titans of ROCK…Radiohead and U2…a completely unknown, unsigned group; and they have worked the DeepRockDrive magic, in the dawn of our community, to be one of the three most popular petitions on the site!

Like many music industry lifers, I am profoundly concerned about the state of “our” business. But unlike most; lets call them for what they are; the “talkers” (or winer’s) I’ve chosen to to be a “walker”…a risk taker…and whilst I have fallen flat on my face, more than once, the kick, for me, is to get on with innovation and putting forth new ways for Artists and Fans to experience music the way I’d like to: deepr…(hint on our name)

So there you go. Why did I get started with DeepRockDrive? So that artists and their fans, like Logo’s , can come together and make their own marketplace for a new kind of live experience: Interactive, without the gates of old world market promoters, media titans etc, getting in their way. And you dont have to be BIG to get elected and earn some money so that you can keep your focus, as an artist, on a career in making music that people, wherever they are globally, connect with…. Oh sure you may be thinking, wait till the community grows; it’ll be just like the “real” word where the big bands always rise to the top. Well, we’ll see. I don’t believe that to be true. I’m not entirely sure that will unfold at DeepRockDrive. Could happen; but what we might be getting a peek of in this community is the excitement and power of THE new digiartists, that is artists who have mastered the digital age and the tools within it to use that power to drive (another hint about our name)…yes, to DRIVE their own fate vs. praying for some large corporation to do it for them. In the new world, one with DeepRockDrive’s of many different shapes and colors, popularity will be a function of real democracy….not big media and hype masters, rather, Artists who work with their fans, touch their fans and embrace each and every single one of them.

That’s “why” I got started with DeepRockDrive. Here’s to the “Logo’s” of the world: in jazz, hip hop, blues, classical, etc. Your time has come…its not about how popular you are, what big guns you have behind you; its about how passionate you are about your fans, your credibility and your authencity to your music and long term career…

How interesting it’ll be to see it all unfold. Go Logo’s: all of you.

"In the Silence Review 2005"

Grade: A

This seven song disc is packed full of excellent musicianship and songwriting by this St. Louis area trio. "The Lonely Man", is still one of my favorite songs in the past...oh, I dunno say 20 years. These guys really have it together and it truly shows on this effort. I expect nothing but great things for these guys in the future. Get this disc while you can! - The Audio Nut

"Beautiful Disguise EP RFT Review"

Beautiful Disguise EP
(self-released)
By Christian Schaeffer

Published on July 16, 2008
As I was leaving a concert a few weeks ago, a member of Logos handed me a CD-R with a few songs from this EP. Noticing that the band's CD release show was sponsored by local classic-rock station KSHE (94.7 FM), I jokingly asked if the band sounded more like Pink Floyd or Ozzy Osbourne. Unblinking, the band member said that Logos was more like Pink Floyd: a little psychedelic and a little progressive, but with plenty of big-time guitar licks. My comment was more a gentle dig at KSHE – serious props to the station for supporting a local band and not just hyping, say, another Rush show at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, but of course Logos would have to sound like a heavy-rock heavyweight to receive the station's imprimatur. And Logos does fit that role of a hard-rock band, but with a few tweaks to keep things current.

At first blush, all the classic-rock set pieces are in place on this five-song EP: the trio uses double-neck guitar, tricky tempo changes, and even pulls out a Frampton-esque talk-box solo on "Mystic Haze," a song that resolves after a few minutes of serious high-necked riffage. Singer and guitarist Cullen O'Donnell and bassist Zach Czajkowski are only eighteen, but have already digested a lifetime's worth of riffs and poses. O'Donnell's vocals are strong and confident, veering a bit more toward modern rock's Vedder-fied modulations than Robert Plant's wails and screeches. Jeff Hall, late of the sadly defunct Red Water Revival, keeps the beat with authority and enough inventiveness to keep these songs from being solely retreads. "Dare to Be Daring" sounds like the band's mission statement, a song about staying true to yourself and avoiding being squeezed "into a mold." It's a nice call to arms and thin line to walk for a band that clearly believes in these time-tested aesthetics but wants to avoid being pigeonholed as a tribute act. Luckily, there is enough of the familiar and the modern to let Logos straddle the past and the present.

"This Week's Featured Artist: Logos"

This week's Featured Artist is the psychedelic classic rock group Logos.

It seems weird to me that a classic rock group can still be in high school, but Logos pull it off. Lead singer/guitarist Cullen and bassist Zach started Logos in the 8th grade. The two began writing and performing at a young age and have improved ever since. In my opinon, they're prodigies.

In 2005 they released their first album, In The Silence, which included iChannel favorites, "The Lonely Man," and "Growing Apart." Their debut album showcased their raw talent and drive to be an amazing rock group.

Logos are also known for an amazing live show with dual neck guitar solos and a full out band jam.

With the adding of their new drummer Jeff Hall, (Red Water Revival, Six By Silver) Logos has become unstoppalbe. They just released their new 5 song EP Beautiful Disguise, which we premiered on iChannel. We premiered 2 of their new songs, "Everything's Alright," and "Beautiful Disguise." When listening to their new tracks, you can tell Logos have matured in their songwriting and music composition.

Now that they've premiered and released their new tracks, we are giving you the chacne to get one of them for FREE. Since Logos is this week's Featured Artist you wil be able to download their new song "Everything's Alright," for FREE.

Rock on,

"Rider of iChannel.FM Reviews LOGOS Show"

LOGOS at the Pageant

...After John Boy's Courage, Logos took to the stage. I would say that the majority of people who came out to the show were there for Logos. Logos played their familiar favorites like "The Lonely Man" and "Growing Apart" from their debut album In The Silence, but they also played a new track from their upcoming EP which should be out in late February. The guys in Logos didin't hold back either. They all had their solos during the set and Cullen broke out the "Talk Box" for a few songs too.

If you haven't had a chance to catch Logos live, then check them out on the 25th of January, at the Ten Mile House in St. Louis, Missouri, on 9420 Gravois Rd. in the heart of Affton. Logos will be on at 10pm.

Rock on,

LOGOS Earns Their Rock Badge
LOGOS needs no insignia; they have talent
Meaghan Anselm
Metromix
September 18, 2008


Some bands are stuffy and think they can do no wrong. Some bands are pretentious and are only in it for the chicks. Then you have bands that don't take themselves too seriously and enjoy playing music for any sized crowd... a band that cares more about the music, performing well on stage and entertaining the crowd than how high they can spike their hair. That's LOGOS. Hands down, LOGOS is one of the most structurally sound bands in the St. Louis area. These young rockers—Cullen (lead vocals, guitar) and Zach (bass) are barely scraping 18 and Jeff (drummer) is 24—play as if they are seasoned professionals. As of late, they have gotten a lot of practice opening for some major players that have rolled through the area. I suggest you take LOGOS more seriously than they take themselves. Check out LOGOS performing at Blueberry Hill's Duck Room on Friday September 19th at 9:45 p.m. for the Play: STL Festival


How long has the band been together?

Cullen: LOGOS started about five years ago. Zach and I decided to leave the band we were in at the time and start a progressive rock three piece. Jeff joined the band about a year ago. He came in to cover a show for us in Vegas and played the drum tracks on our latest EP release called Beautiful Disguise. He's been with us ever since.

How did you come up with a name like LOGOS?

Cullen: I swear one of these days I'm going to come up with a really interesting and moving story to explain the "naming of the band" but for right now this will have to do. Honestly we were going through lists and lists of names that "sounded like cool band names" and settled on LOGOS. It was something we found in a random newspaper article. I've heard tons of different explanations to what it means but the one that made it stick as a good rock band name was that LOGOS is what separates man from beast. LOGOS is our freewill, our ability to love, and our ability to reason.

It seems like every person in a St. Louis band came from another band. Is that case with your band? Where did you come from?

Cullen: Zach and I started playing out in the St. Louis area in a band called Eclipse which included more members than many STL venue stages can hold. After that it's only been LOGOS for us. Jeff on the other hand is an old man and the real question you need to ask him is what bands hasn't he been in?

Are you for or against the Guitar Hero and Rock Band craze?

Cullen: Uhhh….for it? I know that as a guitarist I'm not a huge fan. It's only because I'm terrible at it and I feel like I let everyone down that thinks because I play guitar I should be able to play the same way with a couple of buttons. Zach can hold his own on it though. We rehearse for shows using Rock Band…it's hooked up to the big screen in the back of our massive tour bus.

What television show do you consecutively agree on. What is the best show on the tube today?

Cullen: We used to all get together a few nights a week and watch Cops marathons. We were hooked after they featured us on their Guys Gone Wild: Almost Rocking too Hard for TV special. I have to admit we've been a little too busy for TV now… but we sure do miss those marathons.

If you had the opportunity to open for a national act that happens to be rolling through St. Louis, who would it be?

Cullen: We've been lucky enough to open for Robin Trower and Todd Rundgren and on October 3rd 2008 we will be opening for April Wine and Blue Oyster Cult. We can't really complain…although it would be amazing to open a show up for Yanni.

With varied musical styles and genres in today's music, is there one artist or band out there that has impressed the hell out of you?

Cullen: The most impressive newer rock band would have to be The Mars Volta. They're very different and very interesting musically. Every musician should catch them live. There's something to be learned there.

One thing that I think is great about the St. Louis' music scene is the friendships that are made between bands. Who are your band buddies on the scene?

Cullen: There really isn't one particular band that we do a ton of shows with. There are so many that we have been able to play with over the years that we know and respect and support. Still, we think there are way too many good bands in St. Louis to limit ourselves to just one click.

What music venue do you like playing the most/do you want to play?

Cullen: There's nothing like playing a sold out Pageant. LOGOS has come across many great venues with a lot of great people working there who treat us really well including Cruisin RTE 66, Cicero's, Mississippi Nights (really miss that place), and the Pageant. It's a band goal to one day play a really big show at the Fox Theater

Bio

LOGOS is a live performance force to be reckoned with. Winning RiverFront Times’ 2010 “Best Rock Band in St. Louis” honor, this band seals its reputation as a high-octane experience rarely to be rivaled and always thrilling to their audience. LOGOS makes it their mission to put on a great rock show for their fans while producing sonic anthems that give them a reason to blast their radio.

An unbridled musical eruption, a formidable wall-of-sound projected by only three musicians. LOGOS is the embodiment of that hypnotic guitar driven rock which today’s generation is starved for. Until now.

In every cymbal crash a rush of adrenaline.
In every guitar riff a roaring expression.
In every melody a powerful connection.
A full-on rock revival.
Turned all the way up.
LOGOS
