About this event:
Pam is an American roots musician born and bred in the South, well versed in the blues. Her debut album Hot Mess hit #1 on the Roots Music Report, #3 on Sirius XM BB Kings Bluesville and #25 on The Living Blues charts, making a name for herself in the blues world. When her band broke up in 2014 she was mentored on guitar by the legendary blues woman, Debbie Davies. She then formed roots duo, Stolen Hearts and released an album called Dirty Southern Soul in 2015. Now she is back in the studio recording her next solo album. Although she has many awards and nominations under her belt she finds the most rewarding aspect of her career to be the impact her music has on people. After earning the right to sing the blues, by overcoming addiction, depression and physical ailments, she serves up a positive message along with her music; Knowing how it healed her, she plans to carry this message to others in hopes it will heal them too. Look for her new album to be released in Fall 2017.

MORE COOL STUFF
I am honored to be band director and guitar player for the

WiB Showcase in Memphis for the
International Blues Challenge.
I also volunteer for Girls Rock Charlotte, a summer camp for girls that teaches life lessons with music as the basis. Being a positive role model for our youth is a huge responsibility and it is the least I can do for all the blessings I’ve received.
Girls Rock Charlotte is a nonprofit that amplifies the confidence of ALL girls and women through the power of music.
Our summer camp helps girls and gender diverse youth build their self-esteem and find their voice through a unique program that combines music with enriching workshops…all featuring powerful mentors, leaders and artists.
