American Idol 2012 Contestant Phillip Phillips’ Song “Home” Sounds Like Mumford & Sons… So Who Are They?
ShouldPhillip Phillips win American Idol 2012, you will hear his winning song “Home” a lot. WhenRandy Jackson compared the tune to Mumford & Sons, a lot of the audience was likely in agreement, while others may not have heard of the folky, bluegrass band.
Though they’ve received Grammy Award nominations and radio play, the British band is still indie enough that it might not be a household name yet. Their debut album, Sigh No More, was released in the U.S. in 2010. The song “Awake My Soul” from that record definitely sounds similar to “Home,” so if you liked Phillip’s song, you should check out the rest of their music.
The band made headlines in April of this year when lead singer Marcus Mumford married actress Carey Mulligan.
