Mumford & Sons

  • Mumford & Sons are one of music's most unlikely success stories. The British group broke through with a banjo-driven folk/rock sound that, Rolling Stone called, "like a horse and buggy designed in a Tesla factory." With the recent release of "Delta," their third straight #1 album, they are indisputably among the biggest bands of the past decade. Anthony Mason reports.

    So fun! I recently saw them in a tiny theater in Taipei and it was super intimate and fun! Much MUCH smaller venue than what they are used to playing I'm sure. But it was a blast and everyone was pretty close. Marcus even ran through the crowd and played at the back of th audience!

    Great little clip. I learned quite a few things I didn't know before. Love these guys. So full of life, fun, creativity. Always pushing the boundaries. Loved the first two albums. Not a huge fan of number 3. Delta is a amazing. The concert last fall in Phoenix AZ was fantastic!! First time to see them live for me. Was totally worth the 6-hour drive. We got the special performance of "“The Sun Never Sets On The Cool Kids”. Hilarious. So happy for their success.

    They are so real and I'm happy they didn't have to deal with a mega studio and recording company!!

    All recording artists today owe their success to “payola”. Unless an artist’s record company is cutting checks to radio stations, the radio listening public will never hear their music. “Payola” is accounted for in the record company’s ledgers as, “artist support”. Record company’s “support” dictates what we hear on the radio.... Sad...

      Louis Rios - pay·o·la
      the practice of bribing someone to use their influence or position to promote a particular product or interest.
      "if a record company spends enough money on payola, it can make any record a hit"

      Louis Rios - I worked in accounting for a major label. There’s my evidence... Justin Bieber was “Discovered” on RU-clip, but I guarantee his songs didn’t get any airplay until his label started cutting checks. Why do you think the radio stations play certain songs 50 million times a day?? Next time, think, instead of reacting with your over emotional state before posting a response... Bienvenidos al mundo real Louis...

      He says without evidence, and by strangely assuming that radio is still the primary way that musicians get discovered. Ever hear of Spotify, or maybe RU-clip??

    Those guys are doing something right. I’m Puerto Rican and not too much into the blue grass stuff but, I love their music! Glad I’ve heard of them.

    I saw them 10 years ago this November at a club in Knoxville, TN and 4 more times over the last 10 years. I feel like a proud big sister watching this segment to see how far they’ve come. They never cease to make me smile ❤️

    Skipped seeing them on a small stage at Bonnaroo to go see the Avett Brothers on a different stage. It was one of the hardest decisions of my life. I love the Avetts but I would have made a different decision today.

    I miss the banjo boys. How I wish they wouldn't have folded under the pressure of the critics, and kept it country/alternative/bluegrass/folk. There was something More humble, manly and rustic about that sound, But I guess they have to change with the times. wish them much more success.

      Marcus said the sound change came from within the band itself, not from any pressure. They wanted to evolve, and they did a fantastic job.

    • Reed Sowell

      I do share a similar sentiment, but I don't think it was media or critic pressure at all. They are my absolute favorite band and when I saw them back in October, right at the front, I realized that even the songs I connected with less (mainly those on the third album) were other people's favorites songs that really impacted him, and they sang every word, as did I. I've listened to their first album hundreds of times and still get something new from it. However, I think the band evolved naturally and you can see the dedication to their music in every single live performance. Their newest album was somewhat strange at first but when you get into it, you realize that really brings all of the different strands of music they've touched over the years together. The live show I saw was just incredible and better than I could have imagined. Although there was more production, more glimmer, shiny lights, and fireworks, it never took away from the same heart of incredible souls that have touched millions through their melodies and lyrics. All that to say, they have done everything from a genuine place and it shows in how they perform.

    I am happy for their success. I like their grass roots sound from this British band. It's a shame we live in such a cynical society that they've received criticism. Wish them all the success in the future.

    Saw them at ACL last year. Marcus grabbed my hand during Ditmas. I had never felt more alive than in that moment lol. Seen them 4 times I look forward to all future shows! Love this band!

    Saw these guys open for U2 here in Seattle a couple years ago. The show was absolutely AMAZING. They are a great live band. But the greatest part of the show was during the final encore of the entire night. The night ended with the stage being occupied by U2, Mumford and Sons, and Seattle native Eddie Vedder as they all closed out the show together for the final songs. I've been to dozens of concerts all over the country in every imaginable genre. But that moment, with all that talent on the stage on the stage at the same time, tops the list for me.
