Mumford and Sons on World Cafe

Mumford and Sons on World Cafe London folk rockers Mumford and Sons made a splash on the indie music scene with their 2009 debut album Say No More. The album combines the raspy crooning vocals of lead singer Marcus Mumford with lush harmonies and thoughtful lyrics in songs that range from soft and soothing to rocking, toe-tapping tunes.

The band received critical success for Say No More in 2010 before breaking through to mainstream audiences in early 2011 after being nominated for two Grammy awards and performing at the 2011 ceremony. Since then, the band’s career has skyrocketed and they’ve gone on to headline large concerts and music festivals all over the world. In between their hectic touring schedule the band has made time to work on recording their sophomore album. The band’s much-anticipated (Grammy-Award-Winning), follow-up album, Babel, was released on September 24, 2012!
