Pamela Means Jazz Project at Luthier's Co-op
Pamela Means, singer-songwriter and jazz musician, with “mad guitar-and-vocal skills” (Time Out New York) has toured throughout the US, Canada, Europe and Australia, winning awards, delighting audiences and impressing critics with her seven independent releases along the way. Currently, Means is preparing her eighth album, a solo acoustic live-in-the-studio recording, for national release.
Pamela Means’s multiple honors include being named Falcon Ridge Folk Festival’s “# 1 Most Wanted New Artist,” “Wisconsin Folk Artist of the Year,” “Wisconsin Female Vocalist of the Year,” and her politically provocative album, Single Bullet Theory, was voted 2004’s “Outmusic Outstanding New Recording.” Pamela Means was twice voted “Best Acoustic Act” of the year in her hometown of Milwaukee WI, and later nominated for the “Outstanding Contemporary Folk Artist” Boston Music Award. Curve Magazine calls her “one of the fiercest guitar players and politically-rooted singer-songwriters in the music industry today.”
Pamela Means has shared stages with Pete Seeger, Ani DiFranco, Indigo Girls, Joan Baez, Howard Zinn, Angela Davis, Eve Ensler, David Strathairn, Neil Young, Shawn Colvin, and many more. Notable appearances include the Newport, Falcon Ridge and Clearwater Folk Festival(s), SXSW Music Conference, Woodford Folk Festival (Australia), and Stockholm Pride (Sweden).
With virtuosic musicianship, razor wit and a disarming sense of humor, Pamela Means is building a vibrant and remarkable career, delighting audiences from Anchorage to Amsterdam to Sydney to Stockholm to Honolulu and New York. Thrilled audience members often exclaim they’ve ‘never seen anyone play guitar like Pamela Means!’ Plus, Ani DiFranco said to Pamela Means, “you groove so deep, so deep I can’t get out. And I wouldn’t want to.”
