About Trouble Tongues

Trouble Tongues is Spoken Word, Like You’ve Never Heard. We are wordsmiths who represent freedom, challenge the status quo and feed your mind with thoughts that no-one wants you know. Oh, and we will make you angry, as well as joyous, and maybe even bring a tear to your eye. Come join us and together we will spread the word!

Feel like spreading the spreading the love vibe? Then spread the Trouble Tongues message with our merch. We’ve got socks, we’ve got T’s, we’ve got hoodies, vests and mugs, so get out there and be seen.


We are currently putting together an anthology of Trouble Tongues performers so watch this space for a publication date – YES Trouble Tongues performers in print!

Meet Your Host

Sonny Green has worked in the spoken word and live music scene for many years doing various gigs including being the first ever rap artist to perform at the House of Commons supporting Fatboy Slim. Consistently delivering confident and original live performances, what makes Sonny stand out from the crowd is that he calls it as he sees it, and his angry lyrical tirades are completely uncompromising, unmaterialistic calling out everyone from politicians to his peers without fear.
