Crooked Mouth is the recording project of guitarist/songwriter Ken Campbell.

 

Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, Crooked Mouth has, somehow, managed to keep a pulse since 2001 and over 3 albums. In that time a core of musicians and vocalists have conspired to produce a distinctive, if hard to classify, sound. Joining Campbell (guitar) are regular contributors Tony Hodge (drums), Ali Mitchell (keyboards), Leen (bass), Mike McCann (bass), Kenny Haig (lead vocals) and Lynne Campbell & Eilidh Maclean (both backing vocals).

 

Earlier recordings also featured Simon Ellis (keyboards), and Chris Stenhouse (bass). Guest slots have been taken by Mike Warren (cello on the 2007 release, Hold in the Sun) and, fresh from working with the Steve Hackett band, Rob Townsend (sax) on One Bright Midnight.

 

With a fourth album in mind, 2019 saw Lewis Moore join the ranks on lead vocals. The first offering from that album - Angels Once - was released in December of that year. A second track, Astronaut, was published in September 2020.
