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.

    @Joomla12 Mhm yeah i'm guilty of "forcing" the music up to my friends too. But that's just because I think they are great and it's a shame not to listen to them just because sometimes it's almost like its cool to hate M&S :( I'm reading comments here flaming M&S because of their looks... I mean come on...

    @yellow-umbrella that's hard to do when a handful of their fans constantly try forcing their music on you. I hate their fanbase, not them.

    This is a public forum, not a fan page so if you want to express your dislike of this band and exorcise the memories of having heard one of their songs by posting a negative opinion then it's as valid a comment as expressing your love of the band.

    When I read this shoutbox, apparently the worst thing that can happen to an artist is to become famous. [8]

    yellow-umbrella, -- People tend to hate things for no reason. The internet has turned into a hateful place. It's not only on this shoutbox.
