The Blue Llama Fleet actually is not a fleet, they just sound like one. The "band" consists of Logan Glenn, and--Logan Glenn. Glenn performs each instrument in the band (drums, guitar, vocals, and bass). He is heavily influenced by modern blues-rock, as well as much of the blues from the 60's and 70's. Some of his biggest influences are Albert King, The Black Keys, Chuck Berry, Gary Clark Jr., The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and The Rival Sons.
In 2007, when Glenn was twelve years old, his father, Tony, turned him on to vinyl and the next following year, Logan was learning how to play songs from Aerosmith's "Toys in the Attic". Glenn has never had an actual lesson, but like most musicians, he is aware of the resources the internet holds.
After three years of learning the guitar, Logan joined Lincoln, Nebraska's Academy of Rock program and got his first taste of playing music to a live audience. His first show was in March of 2010 at the legendary Zoo Bar, where famous bluesmen such as Magic Slim, Buddy Guy, and Junior Wells performed. Ever since then, Glenn has played in two bands, The Throwbacks and The Comebacks. The latter was rather successful for a high school band in Lincoln, Nebraska.
The Comebacks were a three piece garage rock band consisting of Glenn (guitar/vocals/drums), Tyler Schneider (drums, bass), and Brad Strothkamp (drums, guitar). The band was heavily influenced by Link Wray, The Sonics, and The Black Keys. The band had even got local airplay for their songs such as, “Cruise Control”, “Spring Night”, and “Roll the Dice”. The Comebacks were together for nearly two years (Dec. 2011 – Nov. 2012) and have over 2,000 followers on Facebook and are still ranked in the top 20 on Reverbnation.com’s rankings of Nebraska rock bands.
Glenn’s second band was huge for his development in other instruments and helped craft him into a better musician. Once the band broke up, he was able to write his own songs while being able to perform each instrument well. He released his first EP, First EP, Don’t Judge under the name The Blue Llama Fleet in November of 2012.
The Fleet’s first EP was met with praise and the track, “Knock Knock, Baby” received local airplay. Since then, the band has released six more EP’s and received continued airplay for tracks such as, “Close the Door”, “Turn It On”, “Brick City”, and “Tailor Made”.
In July of 2014, Glenn finally took a handful of songs to studio and recorded an album professionally. This album was Ghetto Root Beer Float and two months after he released this, he released another album, White Lightning Ravioli Flow. Each album is free via download and can be found at most coffee shops around Lincoln, Nebraska.
