Quincy Mumford & The Reason Why

AFTER 8 YEARS, 800+ SHOWS, AND FIVE AWARD-WINNING ALBUMS, ASBURY PARK, NJ-BASED 25 YEAR-OLD SINGER/ SONGWRITER, QUINCY MUMFORD, IS SET TO RELEASE HIS WIDELY ANTICIPATED SIXTH STUDIO ALBUM STATE OF MIND, JANUARY OF 2017.

IN THE MAKING OF STATE OF MIND, Quincy took a bold new approach to creating soul music by working with world renowned performer, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Michael Ghegan, who has worked with such established and iconic artists such as Justin Timberlake, Elton John and Andrea Bocelli.

Quincy states, “I set out to create a record that would in uence people to love and be loved, to smile, and to spread just a little bit of kindness each day. It takes many to move mountains, and in a world full of possibilities, we must work together as a human race to plant seeds of positivity.” Quincy and Michael released their rst single and songwriting collaboration in January 2016 titled, Helping Hand. This song landed the winning title at The Philadelphia Songwriting Contest.

Quincy released his fth album Its Only Change in July of 2013. Its Only Change was recorded in Nashville, TN 
with producer Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo) and features performances from Jerry Roe (K.D. Lang), David Labruyere (John Mayer) and Aubrey Freed (Black Crowes, Sheryl Crow).

Quincy Mumford and his live band The Reason Why are excited to continue their tireless performance schedule. Mumford’s previous tours have found him sharing the stage with acts such as Slightly Stoopid, Rusted Root, moe., Donovan Frankenreiter, Tedeschi Trucks Band and performing at major music festivals like Fire y,
The Gathering of the Vibes, and Muskiest.

Optimistic, charismatic, and undeniably genuine, Quincy’s music possesses the same “feel good” attitude that the young man himself does. This forthcoming album produced by Michael Ghegan, establishes Quincy Mumford as an “Artist to Watch” in 2017.
