Despite making a living from being a scientist, lab technician, DIY guitar and amp builder and repair man, playing in a band just feels essentially vital for Emanuel Preuschl. Since adolescence he has been working with bands from different styles as ska, reggae and hip hop, hardcore metal, avantgarde jazz and blues. The latter started with Sebastian Müller on bass and Antonia Wagner-Strauss (aka Tony Renaissance) on drums in 2012 when they founded the band 'Boîte', which later became 'Krooked Tooth'. Emanuel's fingerpicking electric guitar style is heavily influenced by early delta and electric blues masters like Sam 'Lightning' Hopkins, 'Mississippi' John Hurt, Hubert Sumlin and Buddy Guy, using only DIY-guitars and amps with Krooked Tooth.

​Sebastian Müller developed his unique style of bass-playing by fuseing his love for skateboarding, style and one life long of listening to rock and roll. Btw, you think bass players don't move? - Watch this dude, and think again!

Creative musician, excellent teacher, joiner and simply one of the nicest people around, Martin Peham (Furby Lewinsky, Global Groove Lab, LARK) has sympathy for heavy grooves and uptempo songs which permeates his drumming style of accented rolls and short outbursts of polyrythmic patterns.


Krooked Tooth's former drummers were Florian Wagner (Playbackdolls, Thirsty Eyes) and Andreas Dauböck (Dun Field Three, Ash My Love, Morbidelli Brothers).

Any time that a gig is big enough Krooked Tooth loves to beef things up with its tiny but hot brass section consisting of composer, arranger and saxophone virtuoso Sandro Miori (Reform Art Unit) on saxophone and the magnificient Julian Preuschl (Praq) on trumpet, who add their super powers to the mix.
