Project PH


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 Band

Australian Kim Murray offers a display of vibrant sound-crafting and compelling soloing as lead guitarist, he often develops the songs in the early stages with Yolanda. 
Project pH features the skills of the dynamic and versatile Laurie Lowe on drums. Known for his work as part of the Preston, Glasgow & Lowe trio as well as a myriad of names in the UK jazz scene Laurie's presence in Project pH brings the full range of the compositions to life.


The voices of the band are the emotive Paris Ruel

and the powerful Adeola Shyllon.
Guest musicians joining the line up:
Hamish Balfour on keys
Roberto Manzin on Sax
This band express their music with tightly choreographed detail, often unpredictably performed, signalling accents or arrangement changes with a nod or glance. The scope for interplay and connection is wide and allows the musicians 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.
