PH BALANCE



Fusing organic Hip Hop, live instrumentation, a chilled-out, jazzy vibe and an old-school Soul flavor, Atlanta's PH Balance have become one of that city's most talked about bands. And the word is spreading. The quintet -- fronted by smooth vocalist Pam Howe (the PH in the Balance) -- formed in the mid-'90s around a mutual love for A Tribe Called Quest (though they more resemble the silky flow of Digable Planets and the best of the "Neo Soul" movement). Their growing success led to opening slots for kindred souls like Joydrop, DJ Krush, Tahiti 80 and many others.

The band's eponymous debut was released through Indigo Girl Amy Ray's Daemon Records, which led to some touring with the Girls. The group's latest CD, Fluent, a stunning, soulful and laid-back slab of earthy Trip Hop, is available through
