Josh Logan




Bright Star Rising Josh Logan, 26, was a big fish in a small pond, playing for adoring crowds at Manchester’s Black Brimmer and getting airplay and attention in the local media. Then he got “discovered” by scouts from CBS’ reality show “Rockstar: Supernova,” and, just like that, his charming mug and soulful style lit up millions of TV screens. His star was still on the rise when he was rudely (and unfairly, moaned his fans) voted off in the first few weeks. Since then he’s all but disappeared, cooling his heels while planning his re-emergence. “It’s a very difficult task for one dude, going from a normal life into the rock and roll reality and then back to normal,” says Logan. “I know I’ve got the talent and I’m capable of taking it to the level of stardom, but until that happens I’ll just keep on doing what I do.” So is his career a fireworks show or a bottle rocket? That remains to be seen, but either way his fans, now in the millions, will be watching.

New Hampshire Magazine knows where "It" is at. Each November, we identify the state's most happening people and publish their names and profiles in our annual "It List."

So what defines an "It" Person?

How about buzz, panache, je ne sais quoi, currency,  a person whose time has come, a person of tomorrow, a timeless person, noteworthy, below the radar, in the news, in the know, hot, cool, high impact, slippery, a mover and shaker, a humble saint, a behind-the-scenes operator, a scenery chewer, an unsung hero, a hero who knows how to sing. 

It's a quality that's hard to define, but you know it when you see it.

Above is one member of the 2006 It List.
