IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from?

PG: I was born and raised in New York City, and moved to San Antonio, Texas about 21 years ago come this June.

 

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?

PG: I have been singing since I was 14 years old. I started in school, singing in chorus and the school plays. I tried singing in groups with my friends but nothing serious happened while in New York. I pursued music professionally at age 25 when I moved to San Antonio, and I began singing everywhere I could. I sang background for many artists and played in bands of all genres, including pop, rock, reggae, r&b, hip hop and soul. I also play drums and piano, and I write music and lyrics.

 

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Why do you want to record and release your own music?

PG: Recording and releasing my own music has been a dream of mine for a very long time. The first time I sang for my grandmother, I was 14 years old. I sang Barbra Streisand’s “Evergreen” for her; in the middle of the song, she held her hand up, signaling for me to stop, with tears streaming down her face. I felt horrible for making her cry, but she said they were tears of joy. She said God gave me a gift that must not be wasted. She made me promise that I must do something with my voice, and I promised. That promise drives me right up to this day. This album is all part of it. She passed away 30 years ago but she is still pushing me to share my gift with the masses.

 

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?

PG: My songs are about my life, and they are intensely personal. I discovered that I can’t write about things I don’t know about, so I draw from what I’ve experienced in life, love, relationships, death, abuse, etc. It will definitely be felt by the people who have been through a few things such as I have, but there’s a lesson in every story that I try to tell.

 

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who is your fan base directed towards?

PG: People ages 21-55.

 

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:Who are your musical influences?

PG: I have so many, Aaliyah, Stevie Wonder, Jody Watley, Beyonce, Amerie. Those are my biggest inspirations for writing and singing.

 

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How would you describe your music to people?

PG: It’s 90’s style r&b with a dash of hip hop flavor, and some rock infusion thrown in there. It’s very grown up, a bit edgy, a bit sexy, all sincere.

 

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?

PG: I would say my originality is what makes you notice me first when you listen to my music. I don’t really sound like anyone else and I’m not trying to. I want to be true to myself and I feel like that is something that’s lacking out there nowadays.

 

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?

PG: We are just about done mixing my very first album, which will be called “Alemaadelic,” and we hope to release it on April 25th. We are also going to begin shooting my 1st music video very soon; we’ve already begun working on staging, choreography, locations, etc.

 

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

PG: My career goal is to make a comfortable living off of my music. I love to travel and it would be great to see the world and sing while I do it. That would be a dream come true. In 10 years, I will be up in age, so I don’t know if I’ll be as active as I am right now. If I am, I’ll continue to keep going!

 

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How can your fans access your music and contact you?

PG: I can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, Myspace, Pinterest, and Reverb Nation. I am working on my web site, which should be up soon!

When you can sing and make the outstanding and critical Barbara Streisand take note with tears, well that alone speaks for itself. Wishing her ever sucess.

  4. I met Pamela last year in San Antonio through my producer. Our band was booked to sing at a reggae club/bar and Pamela sang background with me and others. Because we had a very short time to rehearse, Pam jumped in, learned the words and parts the day before the gig. I was impressed to say the least. When I heard her singing voice, I was, #1-happy she could hold a note and 2-elated to hear such a sweet and soulful sound. She managed to blend in perfectly with our established style. I enjoyed singing with her. She definitely made our performance complete. I wish her much success in her future musical endeavors. #teampamela……

  5. Pamela sounds like an artist that has the potential to be long lasting in the music business. I wish her nothing but the best and kudos on a great article.

  6. Hello girl I am so happy for you. I love the new single. congratulations Keep making hot records. I will see you at the top and we shall celebrate.

    All your vocals are smooth and breath taking. You are blessed with the talent to let the world hear. love you

  7. Pam has a heart for music and a beautiful voice! Her music is music that I can listen to, relate to and enjoy. She is an inspiration! I KNOW that she will be successful and do well.

  8. Although at 56 I’m too old for Pam’s music, I still admire her talent, her spirit and her voice. She is beautiful inside and out and that shows in her music. Despite her misguided Spurs fanship, I still love her dearly and look forward to her great success.

  9. Pam is pure music. She loves music so much you can see the joy on her face when she sings. She is truly amazing. And to think, she still has so much more to offer. Keep up the good work love.

  10. Pam is a very loving person singing is one of many things she is good at n she sings from her heart n if u listen to her music u can tell its n joy for her ..keep up the good work me n everyone else is very proud of u

  11. I had the extremely good fortune to visit with Pamela (and her husband Guy) while on a business trip to San Antonio. We are related as cousins, which means I am well acquainted with the strong “roots” from which her strength and passion flows. Her “down-to-earth” attitude, spiritual essence and infectious smile are all testaments to her ability to connect with everyone around her. Her gift of being able to express these qualities through her music makes her a breath of fresh air on the music scene. Her industry experience, perseverance and dedication to her craft not only makes her a force to be reckoned with – but a role model for other up and coming musicians to seek out. If you are reading this…please be sure to reach out to Pamela and let her know you are a great supporter of her work! You don’t want to miss this opportunity to tell your friends, family and associates that you were one of the ones who recognized a growing star and was with her from the beginning!

  12. Oh my gosh! Pam has been singing for as long as I can remember. She possesses a nice mellow style, grace and charisma that is very much needed in the music industry today. These days everyone seems to copy everyone else. Once there is a hit, every other song sounds like it. It’s time for a difference…she is that difference. Ooh I can’t wait !

  13. I have the privilege of calling Pam my sister. Although, we are not blood related, she is my family. I’ve known Pam, 31 years & not a day has gone by without her talking about her dream. Pam has always wanted to be in a band, start a band, sing lead, sing background, write lyrics, and…you get the idea. Anything & everything to do with music/performing she has wanted to do. The day has finally come when her dreams have been realized and she has put together an album/CD for the world to hear. I am so proud of you Pam!! You never quit dreaming and you ARE an inspiration to others. 143!
