If you have not yet heard of Mumford & Sons, your life will surely change as soon as you do. These four young men from West London who make up the band, will become your four main men. Marcus Mumford, Country Winston, Ben Lovett, and Ted Dwane are the men who comprise this band, and once you hear them play their instruments and sing, you will surely fall in love as many others have around the world, myself included.
The four friends bonded over their love of country, bluegrass and folk, and decided to make music that sounded loud, proud and live. Once they realized they were meant to be a band, they immediately hit the road. Straightaway, they won the hearts of the audiences they performed for. They began touring extensively in 2008, and eventually had their first American tour. The reason their music is loved by millions is because it is so real.
On the band’s album, Sigh No More, the songs are anywhere from upbeat and fun, to slow and relaxing. My personal favorite being “Awake my Soul,” this song is truly beautiful and I can never get enough. The first song I ever heard from Mumford & Sons was “The Cave,” and since then I have been listening to as much as I possibly can. If you like Mumford & Sons as much as I do, you will also love Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
This band succeeded because they were always true to themselves, they never changed their sound and always played the music they loved. This is why they have made such a splash in the music scene, they are 100% original. Their folk rock music should be heard by everyone possible because it is simply happy music. The quirky style and music coming from this group is catching on quick and people are realizing how unique it is.
If I ever get the opportunity to see Mumford & Sons live, I would never pass it up. Going to a one of their concerts would definitely change my life, they are one of my favorite bands, and they deserve all the recognition they can get! This one goes out to my four main men.
