"I take your ukulele everywhere on tour with me.
And honestly I just wanted to tell you that your ukulele has made me fall in love with playing music and writing again! I can't stop playing it, and, most helpfully, writing on it! I think John Lennon said something about it being important to try writing on different instruments because it can break the habits that you get into, and therefore help your creativity. Your uke has just made me blow away my boundaries in the way I think about chords and melodies. It's so easy and satisfying to play that it makes songwriting feel not just natural and exciting, but necessary!!!
Anyway, my point is that I think I'm your biggest fan. "
band(s): Mumford & Sons
Since they formed in December 2007, the members of Mumford & Sons have shared a common purpose: to make music that matters, without taking themselves too seriously. Four young men from West London in their early twenties, they have fire in their bellies, romance in their hearts, and rapture in their masterful, melancholy voices. They are staunch friends - Marcus Mumford, Country Winston, Ben Lovett, and Ted Dwane - who bring their music to us with the passion and pride of an old-fashioned, much-cherished, family business. 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, to the warmth of their stories, and to their magical community of misty-eyed men.
