Aubrey Michelle Logan is an American pop and jazz singer and trombone soloist. She is a featured artist for Postmodern Jukebox.[2][4] Logan won the Audience's Choice Award and the Jury's First Place Award at the 2009 Shure-Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland,[1][5] she was an American Idol contestant who won a golden ticket (pass to the finals), also in 2009.[6]

Background[edit]

The daughter of music teachers,[6] Logan was a singer, dancer and actress. Attending a new middle-school, she found that her new friends had a different lunch period because they were in the band program. Eventually, Logan informed her mother of why she was not enjoying school and her mother pulled some strings with the school's Band director. When the Band director asked what instrument does she play? The answer was, "Nothing, but she sings and can read music." Logan was accepted, as long as she agreed not to choose the flute as her instrument. Having no interest in the flute, she enjoyed bands with brass sections sections like the James Brown Band and Chicago. She chose the trombone as a better suited instrument for her musical tastes.[7]

Logan graduated from the Berklee College of Music in 2010.[1][8]
