Mumford & Sons - Sigh No More -2010-
(Folk, Bluegrass, Rock)

From: London

Inspired by folk, rock, country, and bluegrass, London-based quartet Mumford & Sons features singer/guitarist/drummer Marcus Mumford, vocalist and banjo/dobro player Winston Marshall, vocalist/keyboardist Ben Lovett and vocalist/bassist Ted Dwane. They create a gutsy, old-time sound that marries the magic of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young with the might of Kings Of Leon, and their incredible energy draws us in quickly to their circle of songs and to the warmth of their stories. Mumford & Sons’ take on British folk is far from traditional. There seems to be a big influence of 21st century Americana that runs through the album in the same vein as Fleet Foxes or Blitzen Trapper. Sigh No More is an impressive and spirited debut album from a band that holds a lot of promise for the future.
