boy named banjo
Born and raised in Nashville, TN, the original three of Boy Named Banjo consists of members Barton Davies, William Reames, and Willard Logan, all of whom share a love for songwriting, performing, and roots music. The three long-time friends and former high school classmates assembled in 2011 and have built a strong following in the Southeast through both their studio releases and live performances. Since the band's first full-length release in May of 2012 "The Tanglewood Sessions," Boy Named Banjo has added two members: Sam McCullough (drums) and Abe Scott (bass). Though staying true to its acoustic roots, the band's sound has developed tremendously since the "Tanglewood" days, as Willard (greatly influenced by jam band guitarists Trey Anastasio & Jimmy Herring) has taken his electric guitar playing to the next level, while Sam and Abe have provided a solid, yet subtle, Rock foundation. While the band's sound has evolved tremendously, the quality of the songwriting, the hair raising three-part harmonies, the crafty musicianship, and the band's passion for what they do will always be a constant.
