Mumford & Sons: In these Bodies, We Will Live. In these Bodies, We Will Die.
On the heels of the multi-platinum success of Sigh No More, British exports Mumford & Sons have become popular around the world. Their latest tour through a string of small U.S. towns, during which they threw four single-day festivals, sold out entirely. Now, on the eve of their much-anticipated sophomore record, the band is steadying itself for another few whirlwind years. On the eve of Babel’s release, editor Josh Baron traveled to the Tennessee/Virginia border to spend time with Mumford & Sons at their handmade Stopover festival. What he found was a band not only surprisingly humble, but also surprisingly hungry.
Band of Horses: Rock and Roll, the American Way
Band of Horses are an American rock and roll band from Charleston, S.C. And, like America itself, they are also a democracy with a commander-in-chief frontman, Ben Bridwell. As Benjy Eisen explains, though Band of Horses have a strong group dynamic, Bridwell still steers the ship and ultimately carries the weight of the band he originally formed as a solo project in Seattle. Shortly before the release of their first album in more than two years, the Glyn Johns-produced Mirage Rock, Eisen caught up with the members Band of Horses and explored how the ever-humble Bridwell went from living on the streets to major label success. The answer, he finds, is the story of a great American rock band.
Jerry Joseph: I’m Fucking Happy
Jerry Joseph formed the pioneering group Little Women in the ‘80s, provided Widespread Panic with some of their best known songs, anchored the jam-rock supergroup Stockholm Syndrome and toured the world numerous times with his combo The Jackmormons. So, why, after all these years, haven’t more people caught on? In this frank interview with Aaron Kayce, the always provocative Joseph digs through his demons, deconstructs his unconventional career and explains why, despite a lack of commercial success, he’s finally found some happiness.
Joe Bonamassa: The Quiet Prince
Despite a 25-year career and numerous accolades, blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa is, in many ways, still a relatively unknown musician. But thanks to a dedicated, grassroots fanbase that he’s earned through years of touring and independent-minded releases, the 35 year old regularly sells out marquee theaters across the country. During a busy year of touring, recording and filming, Bonamassa put down his guitar to speak with writer Mike Berick about his numerous projects and why he’s having the last laugh.
Plus:Trey Anastasio, Charlie Watts, Jimmy Herring, Harry Shearer, Charlie Mars, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Bright Light Social Hour, Blackberry Smoke and much more!
