Quaan Logan, a sophomore at UW-Madison, kicked off Live from the Nest for the 2017 Spring semester with a performance that combined raw, personal lyrics and homemade, ethereal beats.
Originally from New Orleans, Logan first made music back in his sophomore year of high school. However, his music wasn’t up to his standards.
“I started writing music my sophomore year of high school, and then I stopped because it was trash. Then I started again my freshman year of college,” Logan said. “I feel like it’s been a complete evolution.”
Throughout his short set, Logan delivered lines that showed his growing maturity as an artist. His spacey instrumentals achieved by self-curated beats serve as the perfect vessel for his hard-hitting lyrics and ferocious delivery.
“Now when I create something, I feel proud of it when I hear it again,” Logan said.
As this semester’s first guest at Live from the Nest, Logan set the bar high for upcoming performances held directly in our office. Tune in to The Daily Cardinal’s live stream on March 2 at 7:30 p.m. to see Obasi Davis perform in this semester’s second installment of Live from the Nest.
