Captain kick was the band in which Marshall was, before Mumford & Sons and also in a bluegrass sleaze rap band called ‘The cowboy Ramblers’ and he was named as Country Winston and played Guitar and banjo.
A temporary super group was joined by Marshall in 2013 which was named ‘Salvador Dali Parton’ and consisted of musicians Gill Landry of Old Crow Medicine Show, Mike Harris and Jake Orrall of Apache Relay and JEFF the Brotherhood. The band was actually intended as a joke from start and six songs were written in 20 minutes on the first day and the next day consisted of a full-band rehearsal.
They performed six shows around Nashville, Tennessee and later on, the band broke up. In 2007, he started his own musical band Mumford & Sons with other musical artists and till today they have released three different albums. The name of the band comes from the lead vocalist Marcus Mumford The first album was released in 2009 with the title “Sigh No More” which broke several records in the UK within a week.
