An original fusion of funk, rock, RnB and jazz – reminiscent of The Headhunters, Prince, Return to Forever and Mahavishnu Orchestra.
Currently recording their first album Acid Funk, Project PH plays a diverse range of original funk-fusion and R&B-influenced tunes full of soul. Their musical variety has drawn comparisons to Parliament/Funkadelic, Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters, Prince, Yes, Return to Forever, as well as Don Blackman, John Scofield, and even the Mahavishnu Orchestra. Their talent is exceptional and their music will have you engaged from the first to the last note.
Project pH is a group of musicians brought together by session bassist Yolanda Charles. Yolanda is well-known to music fans and industry professionals worldwide. In 2020, she was awarded an MBE for her services to music. She has spent her career performing live with artists such as Hans Zimmer, Squeeze, Robbie Williams, and Paul Weller, as well as recording with BB King, Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart, and Queen, to mention a few.
The band features the skills of London-based guitarist Nick Linnik, who provides a stunning display of highly compelling soloing as the newest member of the band. The dynamic and versatile Laurie Lowe on drums, is known for his work as part of the Preston, Glasgow & Lowe trio as well as a myriad of names in the UK jazz scene. Pianist Hamish Balfour brings a wide range of experience as a composer and arranger. His training in both classical and jazz as well as as a dance music producer, gives him the perfect mix of skills for the band sound. The voices of the band are provided by the superb soulful delivery of vocalists Paris Ruel and Adeola Shyllon.
+ Support from Cheltenham-based DEATH IS A GIRL!
Fusing rock, funk, blues and a pinch of jazz, Death Is A Girl are a big blend of musical spices that have been cooked up nicely to make Groove Rock! Heavy enough to mosh to, but groovy enough to dance to, the choice is yours. Death Is a Girl combines the groove of Prince and Rick James, with a dash of Deftones and the rocking musical vibes of Jeff Buckley, QOTSA and sprinklings of Mars Volta. Death Is A Girl is definitely a contender worth seeing and listening to.
