Your singing sends shivers up and down my spine. You are completely ‘in the zone’ and bring your audience into the zone with you.
— Roxane Smith, Sing for Water, London Lord Mayor’s Festival

We create our repertoire together through playing out loud with songs, with sounds, with feelings, with ideas and with our voices. We compose, arrange and mess up all kinds of musical material. Our sound world is by turns tender, groovy, mysterious, harmonious, discordant and celebratory, with influences from Finnish and Georgian singing traditions sitting alongside funk and beatbox, jazz, pop and contemporary music; all refracted through the prism of ‘The Mouthful Way’.

Equally at home in prestigious venues as diverse as Sage Gateshead, RSC Stratford, British Museum or the Glastonbury Festival, or on a rural tour of Northumberland churches, Mouthful make all of their own vocal arrangements, charming audiences extensively across the UK. They also perform as part of 8-piece vocal collective Human Music with Helen Chadwick, Jon Baker, Sian Croose and Sianed Jones.
