My newest Release, Days Like These, is out!
This has been such a cathartic process, from the actual writing of this song, after having lost my beautiful Mom, following a brief illness, at only 78, in 2013.
I wrote it, and played this song live for the first time (incredibly hard to get through it, without getting emotional), at Light of Day, in 2015, and continued to do so, at people’s requests for it, at gigs, and have finally recorded it.
Now, to create this video, infusing the very essence of personal emotions and memories that I wanted to convey, to complete my story about her, has been the best part of it.
I want to thank Kyle Ward, one of my guitar players, of Kyle Ward Productions, who totally gets me, and my process, so well, and adds his expertise, and enthusiasm, which is so contagious, that helps me bring my songs to life.
He and I designed a very unique synth dynamic to this tune, to give it the spacey, ethereal, and contemporary sound it has. Finally, I asked my ubertalented musical compadre of 30 yrs, Norman Seldin,
to add his piano magic, and he rounded out my vision to perfection.
Breathing life into these songs I’ve written over the years, is so amazing…and when they are finally ready to launch, it’s like watching your child walk for the first time….it’s terrifying and exhilarating all at once!
I hope this touches anyone, who has lost someone dear to them, with a lightness and gentle hug, because I wanted to impart comfort to others, with my belief, that life continues, just in another form, and that you can keep loved ones near, by embracing all life and nature around us. I hope I succeeded in doing that, by releasing this very personal story to the world. Peace, Pam
