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, Pam's
play based on a story by Louisa May Alcott was produced at
Stella May Gallery Theater in Kingston, New York in June
2011.  Pam is the Artistic Director of BEAT THEATER, a music and theater production company in New York's Hudson
Valley.

Pam is an active member of  the NYC and New York's Hudson Valley arts communities, as a musician, actress, director and
teacher. Pam has lent her time and talent to many community service projects, including Next Step Men's Homeless Center
in NYC.
