Biography

London, United Kingdom (2008 – present)

Mumford & Sons are an indie folk/bluegrass group formed in London in September 2008. The band consists of Marcus Mumford (lead vocals, guitar, bass drum), Country Winston (banjo, slide guitar, vocals), Ted Dwayne (double bass, drums, vocals), and Ben Lovett (keyboards, accordion, vocals).

Having received critical acclaim from The Guardian on their “Band of the Day” online forum, and resounding praise from nearly everyone who has witnessed them supporting The Maccabees and Laura Marling, Mumford & Sons continue to turn heads in London’s growing folk scene.

Their debut EP, Lend Me Your Eyes, features four tracks, including lead single “Roll away Your Stone”. Chess Club released their second EP, “Love Your Ground”, on the 3rd November 2009 on 10inch vinyl. The third EP, “The Cave and the Open Sea” (which was limited to 500 vinyls) is available as a download from their official rawrip page. Their debut album Sigh No More was released on Gentlemen of the Road/Island Records on the 5th October 2009, and the first single “Little Lion Man” came out a week earlier.

Several months after the release of Little Lion Man, it was voted #1 by listeners in the Australian Youth Radio station Triple J’s Hottest 100 for 2009. They played live in the Triple J studio on the countdown day to celebrate the result. In the summer of 2010, “Little Lion Man” peaked at #1 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart and #45 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States. “The Cave” peaked at #3 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart and #27 on the Billboard Hot 100. Both singles have gone Platinum in the United States.

    I woke up yesterday with a live concert of these guys on my t.v . I was still tired, so I decided to leave it on and give it a chance. That's where I made my mistake. First of all, the singer needs a diet. He looks like he went to band camp instead of fat camp. Second of all, they act all hardcore like they're good. Watch them play, or even just hear them, and you'll soon find out that's an incorrect way to describe them. P.S when the keyboard player slouches like that in front of the guitarist it looks like they're having butt-sex on stage. I wouldn't doubt it, if I'm honest.

    ''Come on now, millions and millions of people like their music. That must mean something, right?'' - sure. It means that people don't like to dig deep, don't like to find some interesting and not-so-well known artists. Mostly they just eat it all up from tv, radio, 'new internet star'-traps. Lorde, Anal Del Rey, Mumford & Son of a Guns, TRVE INDIE REVIVAL yo.

    When I read this shoutbox, apparently the worst thing that can happen to an artist is to become famous. [5] Come on now, millions and millions of people like their music. That must mean something, right? They are really really good, no doubt about that

    Mumford and Sons are fun to listen for sure, but they are not real Folk (Paul Simon, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, etc). I would place them under the "loudness is better, let's shout in the microphone" genre myself.
