Logan Mader was born on November 16, 1970 in Montreal, Canada. Logan is best known for his work as a guitarist in the heavy metal band Machine Head, who formed in Oakland, California in 1992. Their 1994 debut, Burn My Eyes, was released by Roadrunner Records and quickly became the top-selling debut album in the label's history. Their second album, The More Things Change... Was released in 1997 and Logan left the band shortly thereafter to divert his energy and time to side projects.
After Logan's five-year run with Machine Head, he joined the aggro rock band, Soulfly, where he filled the slot as guitarist for their 1998 world tour. Logan's union with Soulfly was short lived (8 months) and the only track he technically recorded with them was one of the remixes for Quilombo. Wanting to once again pursue his own projects, Logan left Soulfly in January 1999.
Post Soulfly, Logan formed the heavy, yet melodic, Los Angeles rock band, Medication, with Whitfield Crane (formerly of Ugly Kid Joe). Due to a series of internal issues, Medication disbanded in February 2003.
Shortly after the dissolution of Medication, Logan formed the band New Black, which was later changed to Stereo Black. Although the band opened for a local Hed PE gig, tracked a full demo, shopped it to a few labels and created an internet buzz, they were never signed. Years later, the Stereo Black track Save Me was featured in the trailer for Max Payne.
These days, Logan is half the mastermind behind Dirty Icon Productions, a Los Angeles based production team, alongside partner, Lucas Banker. Dirty Icon, published by Reverb/Universal, writes, produces, records, mixes and masters for other artists.
Logan currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Lati Grobman, and their three sons.
