Eclectic neo soul band featuring Melanie Williams and Joe Roberts.

BUTTERFLY: symbol of transformation and love; sexual position; ghetto knife; butterfly kiss; butterfly effect (scientific belief that a single occurrence can change the course of the universe).
JAM: two or more musicians making music not officially as a band; to relax, chill out (jam man); a fruity preserve (to nourish the soul).
Along the way Melanie and Joe give eternal thanks to Daniel Davidson (co-writer and co-producer); picked up Pete 'Gritty Sweet-String-Plucker' Mason; and evolved as a live band with the musical flow of Will Read (Percussion, drums, backing vocals...plays everything); The Jam family bass players include Ash Darko, Ross Massey and Robbie Bennet; (a tour-de-force of phat bottom end) Bo Walsh (hot-beat-drummer boy); and the steady and sultry gospel tones of Yvonne Shelton. Other contributions include the undeniable talents of Kiiler Benz, Eric Gooden and Greg Lester.
See the Butterflies spread their jam live as they lace the velvet production of their album tracks with a heavy helping of raw molasses soul.
