Hamilton, Ontario born Pam Brooks' earlier country band brought that city's local venues a unique blend of new country with a splash of bluegrass. She retired her country career at a ripe old age of 23 years after successfully booking her band, Pam Brooks & Country Connection. During her 5-year stint with her country band, she also made several appearances on the 820 CHAM radio Country Chamboree. She honed her bluegrass skills while fronting her country band from the bluegrass musicians in the area. Pam learned her strong rhythm guitar style and vocals from her father who also served as her mentor.
After many years Pam re-entered the music scene with a powerful punch, deciding to perform the music she loved, bluegrass and traditional country. She teamed up with seasoned musicians in the bluegrass circuit with past recording careers of their own and created a new band called Lonesome Wind. This lead to a new CD titled, Pam Brooks & Lonesome Wind, Waiting for the Wind. The CD features her fabulous band along with some very special guests. Pam also shows her emerging talent as a songwriter with her song she wrote and arranged, Waiting for the Wind. The CD features both the bluegrass and traditional country sounds that Pam loves. Not only does she sing lead vocals on this CD, but she also sings most of the tenor vocals over her own lead vocals, plays guitar and takes a hand in producing the project. Another word for talented, would be Pam.
Pam has performed regionally including radio and TV in Ontario and Quebec. Lonesome Wind is also featured on various Internet sites including the Nashville Independent Play list. Pam's love of the music and people will make her a sought after performer. With her positive attitude and energy, she will become a voice and a name that won't easily be forgotten.
Pam lives with her husband and 2 teens in London, Ontario.
