Earlier this month, Six Nations born and Brantford-raised singer-songwriter, Logan Staats became the very first artist chosen to record a new original single through CTV’s new series, The Launch!
Staats auditioned, competing against more than 10,000 performers from across Canada. The show featured five selected artists or groups competing against each other; each were given the same song – The Lucky Ones – to turn into their own, while working with music icons Shania Twain and Scott Borchetta.
His “haunting and distinct voice” careened him to the top of the group of talented, hand-picked artists from across Canada. He was described by the show as, “A product of passion and tireless musical commitment, Logan's songs are truly his own. Armed with his guitar and harmonica, he has transitioned from the weekend bar circuit to playing sold-out venues in his hometown and beyond. Logan is hell-bent on raising the bar for Indigenous/mainstream crossover music."
Staat’s single, The Lucky Ones, was released across Canada and quickly became number one on the charts. It is available to stream or buy on iHeartRadio, Apple Music, iTunes, Google Play, and Spotify.
