Wayward Banjos is a Vancouver company started by Wayward Hearts band lead, Bradley Damsgaard. As a banjo player he struggled to find the right instrument to get the sound he wanted so he made his own. He was very inspired by early electrical companies and wanted the logo to have a vintage feel. I stayed away from an Old-Timey aesthetic associated with banjo playing, as the Wayward Banjos sound is a lot more about volume, much like electric guitars.
