Savannah Stopover band to watch: Quincy Mumford and the Reason Why

I saw all or part of more than 30 bands over the course of the Savannah Stopover, but I ended up buying just one CD: Quincy Mumford’s Speak, which you can sample and buy here.

Like so many other artists who played the Stopover, Quincy Mumford can be heard at this week at SXSW. He’s slated for 9 p.m. at the Mad Dragon Record’s Party.
