LACONIA — Singer, songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Josh Logan will perform in a free Putnam Fund sponsored concert Friday at 7 p.m. at Laconia High School.
Logan is well-known in the Lakes Region, having performed at Weirs Beach during Laconia Motorcycle Week this year and previously in 2013.
He is best know for his performances on the television shows Rock Star: Supernova and The Voice.
By the age of 15, Logan was already on-stage as the front man for the local New England rock band Gunshy. The band released one album in 1996, but broke up when Logan was 18. After the breakup, Logan played at local venues for two years as a solo artist, hosting open mic nights as well as performing, to hone his skills as a solo musician.
In the early 2000s, he formed the three-piece band Josh Logan & Nobody's Business with hired musicians. Within a few years, he had earned the title "hardest working musician in Manchester" from the local newspaper, The Hippo. Logan was also one of 100 semi-finalists in the Disc Makers "Independent Northeast Songwriting Competition." In December 2004, the band released a self-titled full length CD. Its first single "Painful Breath" was aired on the New Hampshire Clear Channel rock stations WGIR, ''Rock 101'' and WHEB.
In 2007, Logan formed The Josh Logan Band which is composed of Logan on vocals and rhythm guitar, Nate Comp on lead guitar, Matt Reignkin on bass, and Ryan Barrett on drums. The band released the album Gone Tomorrow, Here Today in 2012.
