Quincy Mumford & The Reason Why is a band from New Jersey that plays a combination of pop, funk, rock and reggae fronted by 21 year old singer/songwriter Quincy Mumford. He credits his style of music to growing up in a New Jersey shore town near Asbury Park, New Jersey. Their debut album ‘Quincy Mumford’ was released in 2008 and was followed the next year by ‘South Edgemere.’ It was that same year that Mumford won three Asbury Music Awards including Best Male Acoustic Act and as a band they won album of the year for ‘South Edgemere’ and Song of the Year for ‘Can’t Break Free.’
In 2012 they released a live album titled ‘Live At The Saint’ which captures the band’s live sound and features songs from previous albums. It includes a DVD that contains concert footage, interviews with the band, a documentary and much more. Their latest release ‘Its Only Change’ was released last year and has different emotions and musical styles and heralds a new musical direction for Quincy and the band.
