Mumford & Sons Biography

Marcus Mumford single-handedly organized a band and arranged performances to get their music out there. Mumford formed Mumford & Sons in December 2007 with multi-instrumentalists Ben Lovett (vocals, keyboards, accordion, drums), "Country" Winston Marshall (vocals, banjo, dobro, guitar), and Ted Dwane (vocals, string bass, drums, guitar). They would later be known as one of the "West London folk scenes", but Mumford insisted they were neither folk nor a scene, but rather a non-exclusive community.

In 2008, the band signed with management company Everybody's which delivered them to A&R at Island, Louis Bloom. With no album yet, the band opened for other music acts around U.K., U.S. and Australia, performing materials which would later become "Sigh No More". As they gained fans, it was time to make a record. Assisted by Markus Dravs, the band began crafting their debut album, using their own money to avoid artistic and technical compromises. They eventually signed a licensing deal with several labels in 2009 and the debut album was released in October that year with "Little Lion Man" as lead single.
