About this Act

Phasma* is a contemporary and adaptable soul, funk and R&B band available for weddings, gatherings, private and corporate occasions and extraordinary events around the UK.

They consist of performers from everywhere throughout the UK and the individuals are first class artists who have played with a portion of the UK's best bands over the jazz and funk circuits showing up broadly and globally and visiting settings, celebrations, theatres, inns and luxury ships the world over.

Its nine-piece lineup (lead vocals, backing vocals, piano, bass, drums, percussion, saxophones, woodwind and trumpet) fits a smooth, refined sound shaded by the novel idea of soul that emerged out of the African involvement in America. A transmutation of gospel, beat and blues into a hip confirmation now far reaching all through the world. Joining sultry layered vocals, jazz-tinged harmonies and danceable polyrhythms.

Phasma is a universally accessible word. It's about music as an in a general sense human type of articulation, and the energy of music having the capacity to connect and touch individuals on an individual level. A man's spirit can be their embodiment, that piece of their being that can take off to the stratosphere. Phasma's sound pulls from the grass foundations of blues and gospel, the melodic signs of that path, electrifies itself in the strengths of jazz and funk and sings from its guts, reverberating a cry of rapture that is felt the world over.

*Phasma is an old Latin word signifying "soul", "apparition", "soul".
