Mumford and Sons Band Bio

Jan 09, 2013

British folk rockers Mumford and Sons have skyrocketed over the last few years from virtual nobodies who played small venues around West London to a chart-topping band that can fill arenas. Find out more about them in their Kidzworld Bio!

London Lads

Mumford and Sons is made up of Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett, Winston Marshall and Ted Dwayne. The band was formed in December 2007 by the band’s namesake, Marcus Mumford, and they took his name because when they started out he was the most recognizable member. The play a variety of traditional folk instruments like the banjo and mandolin to create their unique folksy sound. They started out by playing small venues around West London and by November 2008 they had put out their first EP Love Your Ground, and gone on tour as a supporting act to hone their craft.

Sigh No More

The band continued to tour with other bands during 2008 and 2009, letting new audiences hear their special brand folk rock, and in the process developed brand new material for their next album Sigh No More, the band recorded the album themselves so that they wouldn’t be forced to change anything, but by the end of 2009 they had already been picked up by Island Records, and the band immediately started receiving glowing praise from critics and new fans alike. They steadily gained fans everywhere, the song “Little Lion Man,” in particular piqued audiences’ interest. They won Best British Album of the Year for Sigh No More, and were nominated for 2 Grammy’s: Best New Artist and Best Rock Song for “Little Lion Man”.

Babel

After the having Sigh No More catapult the band into fame, the band didn’t lose any steam and continued to tour and worked on putting out their next album, Babel, which came out in fall 2012.  In December 2012 they told music reporters that they were already working on their next album, and were hoping to start including synthesizers and electronic sounds in their music.

Check out "I Will Wait," from Babel below!
