Mumford and Sons Information

What began as a friendship blossomed into a flourishing folk band when Marcus Mumford, Winston Marshall, Ben Lovett, and Ted Dwane, all of West London, mashed their musical interest into one pure sound. All playing in separate English bands, the four mates united for jam sessions that were so effortlessly compelling they decided to drop all current projects to focus on the music at hand. What came of the concoction was a recipe for success: the foot-tapping, bluegrass of Crosby, Stills and Nash combined with the big band feel of such modern day stars as Kings of Leon. By combining their love of the past and the present in an energetic epiphany, Mumford and Sons was created.

Their first single to hit the US by storm, “Little Lion Man” has broke boundaries for rock radio stations, providing a gutsier, banjo-led alternative to the sounds that have begun to drone out our dials. Their debut album Sigh No More has received critical, going platinum both here and in the UK. With songs such as “The Cave”, “Blank White Page” and “Sigh No More”, Mumford and Sons have embedded their place in the current pantheon of good music. They will be releasing their follow up, Babel this September and are currently on tour.
