Emerging country group Boy Named Banjo are marking their major label debut release with an infectious new song, “Circle.”

Released via Mercury Records/UMG Nashville, the track showcases the band’s genre-blurring sound, encompassing some of the best elements from country, bluegrass, alternative rock and folk-pop.

Layered with bright electric guitarwork, dynamic banjo strums and chest-thumping drum beats, “Circles” aptly fleshes out the five-man group’s collective cornerstone influences such as The Steeldrivers, John Hartford and The Infamous Stringdusters. Their offering is fresh yet familiar, serving as the perfect introduction to Boy Named Banjo’s unique style and delivery.

“It has been a long time coming for us to get to this moment, and we are just thrilled to announce that “Circles” is out NOW!”  Boy Named Banjo share on Instagram. “Our first release with Mercury Nashville and @umgnashville. Wild. Thank you for being patient – we hope it was worth the wait! Cheers y’all. Just the beginning.”

Boy Named Banjo is one of the latest signees on UMG Nashville. Comprised of Barton Davies, William Reames, Willard Logan, Sam McCullough, and Ford Garrard, the band is currently hard at work writing and recording new music to ready their debut project, due out later this year.
