Mouthful are a 4-piece a Cappella vocal group who make innovative, exciting and original music using only the human voice as an expertly-played and finely-tuned instrument. Bex Mather, Dave Camlin, Katherine Zeserson and Sharon Durant create and perform a diverse range of vocal material, with an exciting and accessible repertoire that ranges from Georgian to gospel, folk to funk, including jazz, country and outdoor Scandinavian ‘yoiking’ along the way. Be prepared to have your preconceptions about vocal music blown out of the water by powerful and exciting original work, and sophisticated and unusual arrangements…
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.
