The band was formed in the winter of 2007 in the UK in London. The lead singer, Marcus Mumford, gathered a group of people all from the Uk with similiar backgounds and interests. They played as an opening band during the summer of 2009 but as their album Sigh No More became popular, they stopped touring and decided to go for it all. They spent the rest of the summer of 2009 recording their famous album Babel which has now brought them mainstream success. The band’s future is looking quite prosperous as they cotinue to receive awards including ones from MTV, Grammy, and Billboard. One reason Mumford & Sons has a bright future is because money is not the motive for the band, it is for the fun.
