Logan Mize – Prairie Tapes, Vol. 1 EP

Logan Mize - Prairie Tapes, Vol. 1



3.6/5 Pros

  • Five lovely tracks
  • Very intimate recordings Cons

  • All tracks previously released

You might argue I just had to select Logan Mize‘s new EP for review, as it opens with a song called Albuquerque. This matches to one of the most popular songs by Weird Al Yankovic, who I am currently tour-chasing in Florida. However, there are (of course) many more reasons for a deeper listen to any new Logan Mize releases. These five songs have been released on 14th October 2022.


Logan Mize – About The Artist

Logan Mize is a Kansas-origin country music artist. You find a lot of material about him on, including October 2019 concert pictures from a Sound of Nashville show in Cologne. These postings also feature more bio information. About a year ago, he released the album Welcome to Prairieville


Logan Mize – Prairie Tapes, Vol. 1 – Track by Track

The five song EP lasts 18 minutes. Unfortunately, all songs have been released before.

1. Albuquerque

‘Cause there’s a mountain there that I’ll never climb
It put a cavern in my heart, spreading deep and wide
Yeah, I took the gamble, laid it all there at her feet
There goes Albuquerque, taking everything from me

The slow acoustic guitar song is not yet the Albuquerque vibe I am used to from my tour-chasing week. But, apart from Logan Mize is nicely showing his beautiful songwriting and storytelling talent. Nice opener.

2. Life Before You

The acoustic profile of Life Before You matches the opener: Logan Mize creates a beautiful, very personal, intimate atmosphere, when he is talking about his Life Before You. Very nice one.

3. Scare Easy

Scare Easy is not a rock and roll firework, which melts off your head – but it is slightly more than an acoustic guitar strumming song. Logan Mize is again telling his breakup feelings in such a lovely manner:

I don’t scare easy
Don’t fall apart when I’m under the gun
You can break my heart
And I ain’t gonna run
I don’t scare easy, for no one

4. High Plains Outlaws

The fourth track High Plains Outlaws is my favorite on this collection. The key factor for this favor is the slightly more energetic vocal performance.Very nice listen.

5. Have a Good Life

Have a good life, I am moving on – the last song of the EP is also not about the very fortunate and happy moments in life. Nonethless, it a closing track which nicely suits the composition of this EP.

Logan Mize – Prairie Tapes, Vol. 1 – My View

When I criticize the low number on Callista Clark’s debut album this week – what should I do with these Prairie Tapes? If you haven’t listened to the songs yet, you will find five examples of very nice country music. On the other hand, I just don’t feel that this is an appropriate release strategy, especially for an established artist. So I cannot assign the Top Pick! rating this EP would have deserved.
