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.
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.

PROJECT PH INSTRA-MENTALS
With both our vocal line-up and performing as the INSTRA-MENTALSPROJECT PH expresses 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-fusioninstrumental tracks and modern RnB influenced soulful tunes.
