My friend Garrett Hacking of Photography G showed me new band pictures he took recently. And it’s not just any band. It’s Mumford and Sons who took the music world by storm. Their debut album Sigh No More(2009) landed on the UK charts at #11 and peaked at #2 on the US Billboard 200. Their fresh sound; a combination of rock and British folk drew favorable reviews from critics and sold 2.4 million copies in the USA and 2 million in the UK. Their second album Babel was released last year. They are in the middle of their US tour and that’s how Garrett was able to take these amazing pics. When not shooting everyday life scenes, he goes to concerts since music is also a big part of his life. More of his works can be found in his official website: http://www.photographyg.com/
Truth to tell it was my Canadian musician friend Layne Greene who introduced me to Mumford and Sons. He was doing a covers album. Mumford and Sons came to the discussion. I remember he was commenting about the F bombs in the lyrics of Little Lion Man. That song made me check out their other songs.I like the way they make remarkable and melodic tracks. Something that would rival my other favorite band The Swell Season. Please watch the music video Little Lion Man, but most of all Garrett Hacking’s amazing photos from Photography G!
