"We're from Manchester, which is quite a close-knit musical community. It's a very musical city, very creative." - Louise Rhodes

Current line up: Louise Rhodes (vocals), Andrew Barlow (producer/keyboards/remixes)

Andrew Barlow had been interested in rhythm since the age of nine when he was a drummer in a marching band. On moving to Philadelphia as a teenager he also became interested in the beats of hip-hop (although he disliked the rapping) before returning to Britain and taking a liking for techno.

Andrew arrived in Manchester in 1993 to study Sound Engineering before being offered a job in a Manchester studio where he engineered and co-produced remixes with DJs. He also wrote his own material under the name of 'the Hipoptimist'. Then one day, out of the blue, Andy received a phone call from a complete stranger asking if he'd consider working with her on some ideas...

Vocalist Louise Rhodes was born into a musical family, her mother was a folk singer and took her to clubs and festivals where she encouragied the youngster to get up and sing along too. As she matured, Louise moved away from her folk roots and became interested in the world of jazz and soul.

Somehow the two managed to compliment these different backgrounds and form Lamb in 1994, an ambient drum'n'bass duo. Lamb were one of the first groups to add a lyrics-based vocalist to techno and jungle productions. They stand out from other vocal-based groups such as Everything But The Girl and Portishead because they mix contrasting musical styles.Their tunes, although as vocally catchy, are musically more complex and far more exploratory.

Lamb's debut single,"Cotton Wool", already included remixes by drum'n'bass leaders Gerald Simpson and Fila Brizillia.

Their second single, "Gold", and the self-titled debut album, "Lamb", were released in 1996 to widespread acclaim.

The "Lamb" album, successfully mixes jungle, drum'n'bass and electro-jazz, a combination which also guaranteed success for their fantastic 1999 follow-up album "Fear of Fours".

Lou has also provided vocals for tracks by 808 State and A Guy Called Gerald, whereas Andy has remixed for Space.
