Hailing from San Francisco, jazz and blues vocalist Pamela Rose brings audiences to their feet time and again with songs, stories and images of the great women songwriters of American Popular Song.
Boasting a rich, bold voice and a swinging soulful style, Pamela Rose has been wowing audiences at home and internationally for many years. She is that rare breed of entertainer who connects solidly with her audience by always delivering a personal and unforgettable musical experience. Her sold out appearances at the Monterey Jazz Festival and SFJazz while touring with her Wild Women of Song: Great Gal Composers of the Jazz Era show from London to Los Angeles, have earned Rose that coveted title of both fan and critical favorite.
Originally from Southern California, Rose began her touring life at age 19 with B-3 organist Merl Saunders, who took her on the road in 1977. Rose began exploring American Songbook standards she recalled hearing her mother sing. Performing and recording in the US, Germany and Denmark during the 1990's up until 2008, Pamela continued to explore jazz, blues, original music and hone her deft stage and vocal skills, while teaching at the California Jazz Conservatory in Berkeley.
But it was her dazzling 2009 album, produced by multi Grammy award winning producer Leslie Ann Jones, "Wild Women of Song: Great Gal Composers of the Jazz Era" , which really launched Rose into the national limelight. Rose developed the concept into a touring multimedia live concert, website, youtube channel and published a book with in-depth biographies and discographies of these fascinating, feisty women, from Alberta Hunter to Peggy Lee.
Pamela's 2014 CD "Hammond Organ Party!" just won Rose her 2nd invitation to sing at the Monterey Jazz Festival in four years.She is also hard at work creating a new touring show "Wild Women of the Blues" which should be ready for 2015.
Pamela's six albums On the Jazzy Side of Blue, Every Time I'm With You, You Could Have it All, Just For a Thrill, Wild Women of Song, Hammond Organ Party! and her Book Wild Women of Song; Great Gal Composers of the Jazz Era,are all available through Amazon and at pamelarose.com.
