Bio
After becoming a local star in her hometown of Anderson, Indiana, Pam headed
East at the age of 21 and lived on Bleeker Street in New York City’s Greenwich
Village, singing anything that would pay the rent – with dance bands around the tri-
state area, show bands that played the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean, and a year’
s stint singing at the legendary Mamma Leone’s restaurant in NYC. All the while,
she was writing songs and playing rock clubs like Kenny’s Castaways and The
Bitter End and small cabarets, including Greene Street, Kelly’s Village West, 5 &
10 No Exaggeration, and Good Times.

When a band she was touring with broke up while on the road, Pam returned to her
roots in Indiana where she was immediately in demand for recording sessions for
jingles and backup vocals for albums. She was a featured vocalist with Mercury
recording artists, Faith Band, and received rave reviews in Variety magazine for
her vocal prowess and charismatic stage presence. She produced and sang demos
for various songwriters, all the while recording and performing her own original
compositions. Her new wave
rock band, Video Kids, with fellow songwriter Randy
King, Rod Coons
and Dave Myers, became a cult favorite, playing the college and
club circuit in the Midwest.

But the lure of New York City drew her back and Pam formed a new band. The Joneses, a blues band featuring Willy
Dalton on guitar and Vince Cherico on drums, played such NYC landmark clubs such as Tramps, The Lone Star, The Cat
Club and Sweetwaters. Reps from independent record label, Left Field Records saw Pam perform and signed her to a
recording contract. The result was two CDs of original music,
Die Happy and Dancing On The Pyramids, which received
rave reviews and airplay in the US and internationally.  In 2001, Pam made a splash in the NYC cabaret circuit, earning a
MAC (Manhattan Association of Clubs and Cabarets) AWARD nomination and avid following. Her third CD
Something
Wonderful
, was based on her acclaimed cabaret show of the same name. Pam's concert career includes stints as headliner
and as opening act for such major artists as The Doobie Brothers, Hall & Oates, the Go-Go’s, Stray Cats, Joan Jett, Asleep
At The Wheel and Ronnie Blakely.

From 2008-2012, Pam served as Associate Director of
The International Cabaret Conference At Yale University, producing
a summer program which trains a select group of singers from around the world in the art of cabaret performance. In
addition to running the Cabaret Conference with her long-time colleague and collaborator, Erv Raible, Pam also co-
coordinated the Conference's acclaimed public concert series, Summer Nights Cabaret Concerts at Yale.

As an actor, Pam has appeared in leading roles in NYC and regionally including: Crazy Mary, August Osage County, Sam
Shepard’s A Lie Of The Mind, Blood Brothers and Women of Manhattan by John Patrick Shanley.

In 1997, Pam started writing and subsequently earned a degree in dramatic writing at The New School in NYC. She wrote
the award-winning play,
PURE ART: A PLAY ABOUT LENI RIEFENSTAHL, and is at work writing and composing
music for
SHIP OF FOOLS THE MUSICAL, based on Katherine Anne Porter's acclaimed novel. BEHIND THE MASK,
