Mumford & Sons is an English folk rock band formed in December 2007 and they became popular with the hit song “Little Lion Man”. Band members are Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett, Winston Marshall, and Ted Dawne.
The band released their first album, Sigh No More in the fall of 2009 in the UK and Ireland. It reached the top spot in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. It was then released in February 2010 in the US, where it reached the second spot in the Billboard 200.
On September 25, 2012, the band released its second album, "Babel" in the United Kingdom and United States. It debuted at the top spot for both countries and became the fastest selling album in the United Kingdom for 2012, while it was the biggest selling debut in the United States. This popular album went on to win the "Album of the Year" award at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
The band began touring the United Kingdom in early 2008 with other groups such as Alessi’s Ark, Sons of Noel and Adrian and Peggy Sue. They also had their first appearance at the Glastonbury Festival in June of that year. Mumford & Sons also toured with Laura Marling in Australia and was able to capture the audience by setting a friendly and comfortable mood.
In 2010, the band won the ARIA Music Award for Most Popular International Artist. Mumford & Sons was also nominated at the 2011 Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Best Rock Song for Little Lion Man. In the same year, they received the Brit Award for Best British Album and a European Border Breakers Award for their international success. The music of Mumford & Sons gains much inspiration from literary works. The title of their debut album was derived from Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing and songs from the album include lines from the same play as well as from Macbeth. Other literary influences come from Homer’s The Odyssey, Plato’s The Republic, G.K. Chesterton’s St. Francis of Assisi and John Steinbeck novels Of Mice and Men, East of Eden and The Grapes of Wrath.
