UMG NASHVILLE INKS BOY NAMED BANJO
4/10/20

UMG Nashville has announced the addition of country band Boy Named Banjo to its roster. Consisting of William Reames, Willard Logan, Barton Davies, Sam McCullough and Ford Garrard, the Nashville-based group blends elements of country, bluegrass, alt-rock and folk-pop in their sound. Delivering honest, emotional and roots-driven perspective, Boy Named Banjo pulls influence from artists such as The Steeldrivers, John Hartford and The Infamous Stringdusters.

“Not one boy, but five. Nashville natives, and raised far from the red dirt road, these incredibly talented young men formed their band while they were 16-year old prep school classmates. Eight years later and this band is road tested, polished just enough, and poised to deliver their own fresh and exciting thing to country music. Our staff is hooked, and we are thrilled to bring them to the mainstream!” Shares UMG Nashville Chairman & CEO, Mike Dungan.

Pictured above are (l-r): Top Row – UMG Nashville EVP/COO Mike Harris, Davies, Red Light Management’s Angie Coonrod and Garrard; Second Row – Reames, McCullough, Dungan and Logan; Bottom Row – UMG Nashville SVP Business & Legal Affairs Rob Femia, Red Light Management’s Tom Becci, UMG Nashville President Cindy Mabe, UMG Nashville EVP Promotion Royce Risser and EVP A&R Brian Wright.
