Pamela Moore Interview
Adopted from: http://www.thewimn.com
Interviewer: Describe the moment and time you first realized you could sing.
Pamela Moore: Oh gosh… maybe a more accurate question would be, “…When did you start singing” (laughing). My mother has said that when I was about three or four years old, I would constantly sing at the top of my lungs making up my own melodies and words that never made sense but I sure sang them proudly! That passion I just never grew out of, I guess (smile).
Interviewer: Which singers or bands have had the most impact in your career?
Pamela Moore: This question is always so difficult for me to answer because I find so many artists (men and women) who inspire me all the time! But, if we are talking about my earlier influences I would have to say the Wilson sisters of Heart.
As a teenager, I would be completely enthralled watching them perform. Nancy has such great presence and looks so damn sexy playing that guitar and singing. And her sister Ann? My God! The woman is SPECTACULAR, even to this day! Vocally she has power but can be tender; she has range, color and her expressive delivery is magical! Other songwriters? Many. Just too many to mention. Seriously, my taste in music is very eclectic and open to so many genres of music.
Interviewer: Do you think the metal scene is friendly to women? Feel free to elaborate.
Pamela Moore: Ugh. I seem to grapple with this question even more so as I mature. Age seems to be more of the culprit but women in general seem to bare the burden at a higher level visually than do men. Perhaps the ‘metal’ community can be a bit of a good ‘ole boys club, too, but women are powerful beings. We can rock and we can roll, and there is no reason not to do so! It is what it is… be smart, hold your head high, don’t forget to smile, give a little wink and by all means wear that sexy little outfit if you want (smile)!!!
Interviewer: You recently launched the Pamela Moore Icon Design Contest. Did you select the winner? If so, when will you reveal the final design?
Pamela Moore: No winner just yet… I’ve received some really great idea’s but I feel the Icon/Symbol should be a very definitive design that resonates with me and my brand. So, I’m keeping it open until the right one pops up! I have faith it will happen! No hurries…
Interviewer: We LOVE your latest album, Resurrect Me. You’re truly a trailblazer for women in prog rock. Tell us about the creative process for the album – did you write, produce, etc.?
Pamela Moore: Thank you so much. Resurrect Me was truly a labor of love. It took nearly four years to finish but the positive response has been overwhelming, very emotional and validating! I feel very fortunate and blessed.
During those four years, I had a lot of growing up to do. I was experiencing a very painful divorce, moving from my hometown of Seattle to Chicago, then moving back only a couple of years later. Life got in the way, but for me became the perfect “breeding ground” for the songwriting process. Needless to say, I was feeling a lot!
Michael Posch and I wrote all of the songs on the album except for the song “Breaking Down,” which I co-wrote with my dear friend, Brooke Lizotte. Michael and I also co-produced the CD along with his friend Mark Alano and Chuck Macek. It was Chuck who also mixed the record. Because I moved back home, we were forced to write the material long distance which worked pretty well, actually.
Thanks to technology, Michael would send over his music files filled with these wonderful, guitar riff-laden, musical compositions! I would write and record my melody and lyric idea’s, move around the format if I had to, then send the files back to Michael. I loved the whole process. Am looking forward to doing it again…
