No matter what it is that you want to do, you should dream as big as you can and go for it. Don’t let anyone tell you that it can’t be done because that is the worst advice. Do whatever you want to do and hard work will make it pay off.

After the band's hiatus in 2014, Henderson took a 3-year break to focus on his personal life. In December 2016, he announced the release of his debut solo single "Sleepwalker". Released on January 27, 2017, the track introduced a new sound for the artist, described by the producer Nicholas Furlong as a “dark grunge pop sound”, which was a departure of the music of B.T.R.

On July 19, 2021, the group released a video announcing reunion performances which occurred in December 2021. Since December, the group has released new music and went on tour in summer 2022.


As a lyricist and record producer, most of his songs' lyrics revolve based on his personal stories and other's stories.[citation needed] His debut EP was fixated around confronting tough personal battles in order to get closure and the payoff in getting comfortable with vulnerability.

Henderson grew up listening to Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday, B.B. King, Elvis Costello and Prince.

Logan Henderson stars in the 2009 Nickelodeon live-action comedy series, Big Time Rush, as music group member Logan the brains of the operation who is the voice of reason for his friends.

A native of Dallas-Ft. Worth Texas, Henderson always wanted to be in the entertainment business but wasn’t certain how to get started. After he attended an acting studio in his hometown at age 16 he fell in love with acting. His first on-camera role was as a guest star on the television series Friday Night Lights. “We filmed in a movie theater and I was in a fight scene with the main character Smash” Henderson recalls. “It was the coolest first experience on set.”

Henderson enjoys singing but never considered himself a singer. “In the last year I have been finding new ways to use my voice by working with a vocal coach and doing various exercises” he said. While his character is still honing his skills on the dance floor Henderson, who is 20 years old confesses “I am not a great dancer either but I can bust out one cool move – the back flip.”

When he has downtime, he prefers to be outdoors, either hiking or being on a board – wakeboard, skateboard, or snowboard. After driving non-stop back and forth from Texas nine times now, Henderson has finally settled in Los Angeles.
