Hi, nice to meet you.

"One of my favorite parts about playing music is meeting people that love my music and hearing some of their stories. Each and every person on this planet has a unique story, a unique ambition, a unique past, a unique future. We all have in our minds the memories that caused us the most heartache, happiness, disgust, love... And the list goes on. 

It is my constant goal to always make music based on the stories of real life. That's where I draw inspiration. Every facet of life that makes us feel something - there's a story there. And I want to tell those stories as best as I can - at least, in the ways I've experienced them. Not to sound too cheesy, but thanks for joining my story and for letting me join yours." 

While all members of Wayward have unique stories about life before the band, Jonathan and Erik met in November of 2016. In preparation for upcoming tour dates in 2016 and early 2017, the duo began working relentlessly on crafting a sound as thoughtful as it is catchy. In March 2017, the pair released their self-titled debut EP Wayward, touring up to 15 show dates per month. Searching for someone to add in yet another element, Jake entered in March 2018. Now developing a polished and full-band sound, the trio is set to complete multiple tours throughout the Midwest, with further-reaching locations planned for 2018 and beyond. 

In addition to over 100 shows in 2018, Wayward is working in studio on its next project, estimated to be released in March 2019. 

We are each very excited to present to you the music we make, and we appreciate you, listening to the stories in our songs. We hope they mean as much to you as they do to us. 

Love you all. 
- Wayward
