5 years, 400+ shows, and four award-winning albums to his credit, New Jersey-based 21 year-old singer/songwriter Quincy Mumford is in the process of releasing his 5th album with a distinctive, polished musical style of his own.
"After releasing the live album with my band (The Reason Why)" Quincy explains, "I knew that the writing process could not stop. I needed to continue creating music, and go somewhere I have never gone before." The new album, was recorded in Nashville, TN with producer Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo). It features artist such as Jerry Roe (K.D. Lang) Ken Coomer (Wilco), David Labruyere (John Mayer), and Audley Freed (Black Crowes, Sheryl Crow). "This record is like nothing I have ever done before, deep but universal. I am stoked on the new record and can't wait for people to hear it!"
In addition to his evolution in the studio, Quincy and his live band, The Reason Why, are excited to maintain their tireless performance schedule, which has found them sharing the stage with Slightly Stoopid, Rusted Root, moe., Donovan Frankenreiter, and Tedeschi Trucks Band, among many others. The band is looking to continue building this live momentum, whether they're returning to The Gathering of the Vibes or Musikfest, supporting a band on a national tour, letting loose at hometown gigs, or volunteering their time for The Surfrider Foundation, and/or other environmental causes that Quincy and the band hold close to their collective hearts.
Optimistic, charismatic, and undeniably genuine, Quincy's music possesses the same "feel good" attitude that the young man himself does. When all is said and done, a focused, inspired Quincy Mumford and The Reason Why is a band to watch in 2013.
