Biography

London, United Kingdom (2007 – present)

Mumford & Sons are an / group formed in London in December2007. The band consists of Marcus Mumford (lead vocals, guitar, bass drum), Country Winston (banjo, slide guitar, vocals), Ted Dwane (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.

    With both of their new songs, I originally didn't like them but the more I've listened to them the more I've liked them. If this carries on, the album is gonna take an awful lot of listening to!

    nope, everything is not alright. Mumford & Sons has an identity and they are giving it up for something utterly generic. I respect other's tastes as long as they don't say that it's all something made up in the heads of the people that are just not obliged to think as they do.

    Believe sounds like Coldplay, The Wolf sounds like The Strokes. Where are Mumfords in all of this?

    This album sounds like Coldplay 2.0. Sigh No More is what got me into M&S, Babel kept me but this album i will not buy.

    I feel sorry for all the people that were expecting a whole discography with similiar tunes.

    Hope the banjo hadn't disappeared.

    Actually I want and hope that the new album would be the 50/50 mix between this new style and the old one. Because, if you really think and investigate, you'd see The National's influence in Believe, not Coldplay.
