Profile Johnny Logan born in Australia, but was raised in Ireland, his father’s native country. Known as ‘Mister Eurovision’, he is the only lead singer to have sung two winning entries and one of only five authors/composers to have written/composed two winning songs there. The first win was in 1980 and the song became a hit all over Europe and reached No.1 in the UK. But his solo career failed to fly due to poor management and label fights. In 1987 decided to make another attempt at Eurovision and with his self-penned song ‘Hold Me Now’ won the contest again. The album of the same name sold well and his label gave the artist a big budget for his next release.

“Mention My Name” is a very well produced adult-vocal-pop album with many moments very close to Lite-AOR. Johnny’s vocals & style are in the same league of John Farnham or Jack Wagner, with a clear tone and timbre that sometimes remember Brian Spence. What we have here is pop, but very well crafted, with some nice guitars and the typical ’80s sound. Very hard to be found in nowdays…
