To begin with, Marcus was born in the USA and so has dual nationality; as British citizens, his family returned to England shortly after his birth. He entered King’s College School located in Wimbledon, where he met Ben Lovett, his future friend and current member of Mumford & Sons. He continued his classical studies at the University of Edinburgh, and while still a student he wrote most of the songs from their debut album “Sigh No More”, which was released later in 2009. After he finished his studies, Mumford returned to London to concentrate on his music career. His professional career in music really began when he joined current members of Mumford and Sons, playing the drums for Laura Marling. These tours led to the creation of the group Mumford & Sons at the end of 2007.
