Former Mumford & Sons’ lead guitarist Winston Marshall is in the news for his comments on BBC’s Question Time about Boris Johnson’s resignation. He stated that Johnson “should have gone a long time ago”.
The musician was born on 20 December 1987 in Wandsworth London to British tycoon Sir Paul Marshall and attended St. Paul’s School.
Marshall first rose to fame with the band Mumford & Sons in late 2010, when they first performed at the Grammy’s.
In 2021, after being criticised for his praise towards Andy Ngo’s Unmasked: Inside Antifa’s Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy, Marshall left the band in order to practise his free speech without affecting the other members.
Winston Marshall Net Worth 2022
As of 2022, Winston Marshall has an estimated net worth of $13 million (£10.8 million), according to Michigan Sports Zone.
The musician started his musical pathway at 13 when he first learnt the guitar, covering rock music by ZZ Top.
Later on, he picked up the banjo and delved into folk music which helped set him apart from the others and earned him more gigs.
He met the future members of Mumford & Sons through his experience with the band Captain Kick in the early 2000s. He had a particularly close relationship with Marcus Mumford, the lead singer.
The group then formed in 2007, focusing on folk rock music.
Since his departure from the band in 2021, Marshall has expanded his horizons and dedicated himself to activism and launched a, Marshall Matters, hosted by the The Spectator.
While Mumford & Son’s success has contributed greatly to Marshall’s net worth, he is also supported by his father’s significant wealth of $746 million (£620 million).
Winston Marshall resides in the UK but he does have a Nolita Loft in New York City which was purchased for $3.2 million in 2015.
