Mumford & Sons Biography

Since they formed in December 2007, the members of Mumford & Sons, four young men from West London, ENGLAND, in their early twenties have shared a love of Folk-Rock, Country and Bluegrass. Vocalist + guitarist & drummer Marcus Mumford, vocalist + banjo & dobro player Winston Marshall -- AKA Country Winston --, vocalist + keyboardist Ben Lovett and vocalist + double-bass player Ted Dwane toured extensively throughout 2008; from a barge-tour of the Thames with eight other acts, through to an island-hopping tour of the Scottish highlands and a triumphant set at Glastonbury in June, they sold out London's Luminaire in July, only half a year after they got together.

A trilogy of 10-inch EPs all on Chess Club Records followed, recorded simply at home. Their eponymous EP debuted the same month as their Luminaire show; "Love Your Ground" followed in December, while "The Cave And The Open Sea" arrived in May 2009.
Then came the time to record their debut full-length album. The disc titled "Sigh No More" was issued in October on Island Records; it peaked at #7 on the U.K. Albums chart and spawned the top 40 hit "Little Lion Man" which became a big smash in Australia where it climbed into the top 3 and helped send the album to #1 on the ARIA chart. In February 2010 "Sigh No More" was released in North America flying up the charts to claim the #2 spot on both The Billboard 200 and The Top Canadian Albums listing; the lead single, the aforementioned "Little Lion Man", went to #1 on The Alternative Songs chart and its follow-up, "The Cave", not only hit the top 3 on the same chart but also reached #27 on The Billboard Hot 100. The final single off the quartet's double-platinum debut disc, "Roll Away Your Stone", became another Hot Modern Rock top 10 hit for the band.

Mumford & Sons returned in September 2012 with "Babel", with good reason an instant smash all over the world. Their sophomore album quickly ascended to #1 in Britain, U.S. and Canada and the first single, "I Will Wait", shot to #1 on the U.S. Alternative Songs chart.
