HEADED BACK ON TOUR THIS MAY! CHECK OUT THE DATES BELOW!
Family, Friends, Fans, and other amazing people of this earth,
Quincy Mumford here! I have been working very hard over the past few years touring with my band, The Reason Why. In five short years we have released 3 studio albums (recorded and released independently right here in New Jersey!) and a live record that was recorded at The Saint last year. Live at the Saint went on to be voted as the #7 record of 2012 by the listeners of WBJB, very exciting!
After the live album, I began writing new songs…I knew that I needed to get back into the studio…. I wanted to get out of my element and try something new…. As it turns out, the Rock Gods were smiling on us and a gentleman by the name of Ken Coomer (Wilco, Emmylou Harris) contacted me after I entered a songwriting contest that he was judging. He loved my songs so much, that he asked me to come to Nashville, TN to make an album with him!
So…what choice did I have?? I packed my bags, chose 10 solid songs, and headed to Nashville. It was a once in a life time experience, from the musicians to the studio to the town itself. Musicians such as Aubrey Freed – Guitar (Black Crowes / Sheryl Crow), David Labruyere – Bass (John Mayer), Jerry Roe – Drums (K.D. Lang) and Ken Coomer – Drums (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo) all performed on the record. We had such a wonderful time making this record together.
Musically speaking I could not be happier with how the recordings turned out. The record has an extremely organic texture that I absolutely love. We got old school and recorded a few of the tracks onto 2” tape! My songwriting has evolved and this opportunity has allowed me to represent everything I love and have been inspired by musically. We mash it up with all of my influences; soul, funk, reggae, hip-hop, and acoustic songs to round it out!! Like I said earlier, everything is just the way I envisioned it….except for the part about only having enough $$$ to pay for the recording…. What did my Mom used to say? Be careful what you wish for?? She is right! Now, I need you to get excited also! Because we need your help!
That’s where you guys come in. I need help to reach my goal of $10,000 to finish this record and get it into your hands. The money will go directly towards mixing, manufacturing and promoting this release. Please know that it will not be possible without your support. Here is the cool part…You can pledge any amount you would like; in return I am offering you some awesome incentives. Anything from t-shirts, a pre-released copy of the album and a signed guitar to a house concert or ski trip with me to Vermont! (Incentives listed on the right) You help us and we give back in a big way!
Here’s the catch: Kickstarter is either ALL or NOTHING. If I don’t reach my goal of $10,000 by April 19th, no one will be charged and I do not get to keep any of the money. So that means, if we do not raise AT LEAST $10k, there might not be a new album!!!
We would like to thank everyone who has supported the band and I over the past few years. We want to continue to share music with you! I can’t wait for you to hear it!

What’s going on out there!
Quincy Mumford here to tell you about some exciting news! You may or may not know, but I just recently came back from recording a brand new album in Nashville, TN. The other day I received some rough mixes of the new record, and man I am very excited! I can’t wait to get it out to the world, but unfortunately you won’t be able to hear it until it is released in late spring / early summer. The only way to hear the brand new music is to SEE US LIVE!!
So that brings me to my next topic. Touring and the band “Slightly Stoopid”. And now I am going to mix the two…Quincy Mumford & The Reason Why will be going on tour this March with Slightly Stoopid! (dates listed below) This is very exciting for me because I have been a fan of Stoopid and their music since I was a kid.
These shows are going to be off the chain and if you are in any of these areas, you should absolutely come on out to see some killer live music! Check the dates below and Ill see you at one of these shows in the near future! For Tickets visit slightlystoopid.com !!

Today is day 10 in the studio here in Nashville, TN. After tonight we only have 1 more day left of recording. We have plans to track horns in early February, but other then that, we pretty much have a full record! Of course we still have to mix, master, duplicate, and distribute…but only one thing at a time
It has been a huge learning experience for me being in Nashville…The musicians, the vibe, the studio, the life style. It has been a dream of mine to make a record like this. A record that has pushed me to write and deliver songs in a whole new way. The songs rang from ballads, to funk, to reggae, to ska, to soul and R&B.
Working with a producer like Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo) has been amazing. His ideas and organic approach really make all the songs unique but universal! He values my input and ideas, making the process painless, fun, and creative. Not to mention how goofy he is. Between Ken and the engineer (Patrick Miller) not a dull moment goes by, constantly goofing off and cracking jokes..haha
All the musicians are absolutely incredible: Ken Coomer on drums, Jerry Roe (K.D. Lang, Head Automatica) also on drums, Brian Gearty on bass (The Reason Why), David Labruyere (John Mayer) also on bass, The Soul Sisters, Audley Freed (Black Crowes, Sheryl Crow), and John Lancaster on keys. These guys take it to the next level and I am honored and stoked to have them on this new album.
Headed back to Dirty Jers in a couple of days. More details on the brand new album coming soon!
