Mouth 4 Rusty / Bio

Mouth 4 Rusty are a male/female duo playing songs about morality, love and loss, childhood, life in general and the relationships between ourselves.

Mouth 4 Rusty began in a handmade wooden room inside an old South London ice cream factory in 2009 when multi-instrumentalist Matt Rigsby Smith began writing lyrical music after a break of twelve years. For two years the group included a string section and percussion before cementing as a duo of Matt and Emma Davis in 2011.

Performing around London, Oslo and Wales, Mouth 4 Rusty have supported Serafina Steer, Rozi Plain and This Is The Kit, while Laish's Daniel Green has said that Mouth 4 Rusty "set the bar for songwriting" and that "we are all running behind you grasping for truth words and sweet melodies".

Mouth 4 Rusty's intention is to make simple, traditionally-inspired songs that people can relate to, hummable music based on life as it unfolds, spanning five albums and an EP so far. As Rough Trade have said, "Elegantly crafted hummable songs that you won't want to miss out on", "..all about the big themes; love and morality" (Time Out). Mouth 4 Rusty light-heartedly call them "tales of living softly on the edge".
