After 6 years, 600+ shows, and four award-winning albums, New Jersey-based 23 year-old singer/songwriter Quincy Mumford released his 5th album “Its Only Change” in July 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). Producer Ken Coomer, states, “Quincy Mumford is a true artist that can bring raw 70′s style rock and funk highlighted with the voice of an old soul, it’s a perfect blend.”
The Levitt AMP Asbury Park Music Series is supported by Interfaith Neighbors, working to meet basic needs, build community, and increase the self-sufficiency of residents of Monmouth County. The series is sponsored in part by the Asbury Park Press, and New Jersey Natural Gas.
