Francis Logan


I grew up playing acoustic violin, but was introduced by my son to electronic music, and for the last 12 years have been playing almost exclusively on my 5-string electric violin. I love creating different sounds and tones with a whole variety of effect pedals and sound processors. My main influences have been classical, but I also love folk/ world music, particularly Hungarian and Irish. I have enjoyed creating music videos for YouTube. I usually compose with a specific concept in mind, often following the text of a poem or the meaning behind a work of art.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Everything! Hand-in-hand with my religious beliefs, it helps me express my deeply felt emotions, ranging from melancholy to confusion and frustration, to profound peace and joy.

What is your music dream?

For the meaning and message of my music to be acknowledged and for people to be moved by it

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Making known the true purpose of religion, which is to unite men and women as brothers and sisters in a world which acknowledges a God who IS love

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Not a song, but a piece of music: Wieniawski polonaise brilliante for violin and orchestra, heard from a wind-up gramophone at the age of nine

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Iona Steve Roach Robert Logan Toby Mac

What inspires you to make music?

The love of expressing deep emotions and the creative process itself: discovering new sounds with my electric violin and panoply of sound processors and pedals,also the joy of creating interesting harmonies and melodies

What is the message you want to send with your music?

hope and fulfillment

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?


How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Educate and influence people to recognize the wealth of excellent music being made outside of the mainstream

What do you think of Drooble?

Wonderful! As an amateur composer, I felt like giving up since no-one seemed interested in what I was producing. Now I seem to have quite a following! it's not the fame I'm interested in, but just knowing that people are appreciating my music.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Getting my sound levels correct when recording!

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

I support my son in his musical career as an aspiring producer/ composer

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Not very good at this!

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.
