Folk time

 

Today I discover a band called Mumford & Sons.  I’m enjoying a lot of  them and I’m totally in love with the voice of the singer, which sounds me so good as Dave Matthews.

Mumford & Sons are a British folk rock band. The band consists of Marcus Mumford (vocals, guitar, drums, mandolin), Ben Lovett (vocals, keyboards, accordion, drums), Country Winston Marshall (vocals, banjo, dobro), and Ted Dwane (vocals, string bass, drums, guitar). The band formed in December 2007, rising out of what some in the media labeled the “West London folk scene” with other artists such as Laura Marling, Johnny Flynn and Noah and the Whale.

Mumford & Sons recorded an EP, Love Your Ground, and toured extensively in Ireland to expose audiences to their music and build support for an eventual album. Their debut album, Sigh No More, was released in Ireland in October 2009, and February 2010 in the United States. The album reached number one in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand and peaked at number two on the UK Album Chart and the Billboard200 in the US.

The band gained popularity throughout 2010, performing for larger audiences and making their first network television appearances in the U.S. On 1 December 2010, the band received two Grammy Award nominations, one for Best New Artist and the other for Best Rock Song (“Little Lion Man”). They won the ARIA Music Award for Most Popular International Artist in 2010, and the Brit Award in 2011 for Best British Album.

As of the end of their North American Tour in the Summer of 2011 they reportedly went home to England and started recording a new album. Various songs from the album have been performed during live shows, and the tentatively-titled track “Ghosts That We Knew” was debuted in a live studio performance at the Philadelphia radio station WRFF. The official release date of the album has not been announced.


Enjoy the besties :

Hoje eu descobri uma banda chamada Mumford & Sons. Eu estou gostando muito deles e estou totalmente apaixonada com a voz do cantor, que soa-me tão bom como Dave Matthews.

Mumford & Sons é uma banda britânica de folk rock formada em 2007, surgindo de um fenômeno que alguns da mídia local chamavam de “cena folk do oeste de Londres”, junto com artistas como Laura Marling, Johnny Flynn e Noah and the Whale.

O grupo gravou um EP, Love Your Ground, e começou uma turnê no Reino Unido para ganhar audiência para sua música, ganhando suporte para um eventual álbum. O álbum de estreia, Sigh No More, foi lançado no Reino Unido em outubro de 2009, e em fevereiro de 2010 nos Estados Unidos. O disco chegou à segunda colocação da UK Álbum Chart e chegou ao Bilboard 200 na América.

Em 2010 a banda foi nomeada para concorrer a dois Grammys, um para melhor artista revelação e outro para melhor música de rock (Little Lion Man). Eles ganharam the ARIA Music Award, na categoria de artista internacional mais popular de 2010, e o Brit Award em 2011 pelo melhor álbum britânico.
