Project PH is a group of musicians brought together by former session bassist Yolanda Charles. Awarded an MBE for services to music in 2020, she has had a long career backing artists such as Hans Zimmer, Squeeze, Dave Stewart, Robbie Williams and Paul Weller.

The Musicians

Project pH 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


With extensive training in Classical, Jazz and contemporary music including composing and production skills, Hamish Balfour brings his prodigious talents to the band and superb soloing style to Project PH’s live performances.

Known for his extensive vocal range with a sound influenced by artists such as Prince, D’Angelo, Maxwell and Terence Trent D’arby. Paris Ruel’s strong performance style caught Yolanda’s attention at another London jam session and he has been a band member since the early days. https://www.instagram.com/parisruel/

North London vocalist Adeola Shyllon was invited to complete the Project pH line-up just before Lockdowns. She brings her warm powerful tones influenced by years of singing London-based Nigerian Yoruba music in church and having an eclectic career supporting various artists such as Emeli Sandé & Vanessa Haynes with her versatile voice. https://www.instagram.com/adeolashyllon/

We have a sister band called Project PH INSTRA-MENTALS This line-up features the core PH musicians, Yolanda, Nick & Hamish with the material composed firmly in the ‘Fusion’ genre.


With both our vocal line-up and performing as the INSTRA-MENTALS PROJECT PH expresses music with tightly choreographed detail. The scope for interplay and connection is wide and allows the musicians the room to ‘breathe’. No two shows are ever the same. In Project pH there is to be found a mix of beautiful ballads, heavy funk-fusion instrumental tracks and modern RnB influenced soulful tunes.
