Mumford And Sons: Music Career

After forming in 2007, Mumford & Son's popularity rose, as they toured the following year with support from the likes of Peggy Sue ad Alessi's Ark. At the end of 2008, the band was longlisted for the BBC's 'Sound of 2009' music poll. The poll was eventually topped by Little Boots.

'Little Lion Man' was the debut single from their first studio album, Sigh No More. The track was supported by a number of high profile radio DJs, including Xfm's Dave Berry as well as Zane Lowe and Greg James of BBC Radio 1.

'Little Lion Man' brought the band popularity across the globe, being voted number one in the Australian Triple J Hottest 100 and seeing them perform on The Late Show With David Letterman. Mumford & Sons also performed The Cave live on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

In October 2010, Mumford & Sons performed live on Later. with Jools Holland with Ray Davies of The Kinks.

In 2010, Mumford & Sons proved to be hugely popular at the UK's summer festivals, such as Leeds Festival, when the queues outside their tent were so huge that many fans could not get in to see the band.

Lead singer Marcus Mumford is dating the folk singer Laura Marling. In 2010, they released an EP entitled 'Mumford & Sons, Laura Marling and Dharohar Project'.
