Pamela Knowles Trio

With Noriko Ueda on Bass and  Takaaki Otomo on Piano.

The power that Pamela’s singing has to move an audience owes a lot to the acting experience which shaped her career.

Pamela trained at The American Conservatory Theatre and The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. After several yeas as an actress in New York, Pamela based herself in Europe to pursue jazz where she established herself as an international jazz vocalist, recording artist, and teacher of voice.

The wide-ranging appeal of her talent has taken her on a musical odyssey around the world. She is equally at home at Ronnie Scott’s Club in London, in a Paris jazz cellar, at a supper club in Istanbul, appearing in concert with the Christ Church Symphony Orchestra in New Zealand, in jazz festivals throughout Australia or performing in at the Chicago Humanities Festival, in New York at the Bowery Poets Club or Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater.Pamela’s self-produced CD, Thirteen Kinds of Desire is a collaboration of revised myths and contemporary story-telling produced, co-written and sung by Pamela with 13 original compositions set to the lyrics of Pulitzer Prize winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa.  Since returning to New York, Pamela has created a successful jazz residency singing with some of New York’s finest musicians at Pisticci Restaurant in Harlem.
