Bass player Logan Coale’s projects help carry forward the tradition of art music while recognizing the importance of the conversation between art music and popular music. His groups and affiliations are equally in the classical and pop and rock music worlds and he strives to continue to find himself on solid footing in both places. He has toured and recorded with Natalie Merchant, The National, Lanz Projects, and Jesse Marchant, and is a member of The Knights Chamber Orchestra and contemporary music group NOW Ensemble. He has performed with Justin Vernon, Gail Anne Dorsey, Alexi Murdoch, Aaron Dessner, My Brightest Diamond, Lisa Hannigan, Talos, and Helado Negro, and is often a guest musician of the Silk Road Ensemble, The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, The Mark Morris Dance Group, ECCO, A Far Cry Chamber Orchestra, International Contemporary Ensemble, and Alarm Will Sound and was bass player for the Broadway show Tootsie. Logan studied classical double bass with Todd Seeber and Edwin Barker of the Boston Symphony and grew up in Portland, Oregon. He lives in Cold Spring, New York.
