Pam McCoy is a local musician and songwriter, who performs regularly with her group, Familiar Faces.
She has worked with a number of musicians over the last three decades, such as:
Stormin' Norman Seldin
Dr. Bob & Co
She recorded three songs on an original soundtrack for a Broadway hopeful production, called SPIRIT, written entirely by George Severini, and including some of the most talented area musicians.
Further studio work has included backing vocals and arranging on a number of cd's and ep's with some very talented artists, like Holiday Express, Stormin' Norman Seldin, Sam Sims, Emily Grove, and Kevin John Allen.
Her love of music and arts has always been a driving force. Classical vocal training gave way to playing guitar and singing folk-rock in the 70's, adding her signature gutsy spin to blues, motown, country, pop, and rock along the way.
Performing with Tim McLoone's Holiday Express since 1996, an annual 6-week project, bringing music and the gift of kindness to area hospitals, soup kitchens, and homeless shelters in the tri-state area, has allowed her to integrate her passion for music with charitable giving.
The Twilight Concert, for Children with Aids Foundation, is another ongoing pursuit since 1997, as well as Women of Song, Light of Day Foundation, Musicians on a Mission, Rock the Runway, 180 Turning Lives Around, and others.
in March 2014, she was asked to join longtime friend, Slick Aguilar, on backing vocals in a fundraiser being given in his honor, and headlined by Marty Balin, and Lou Gramm. In August, she joined Slick again, this time at BB Kings, for a 40th reunion Jefferson Starship show.
She is currently working on her original music, soon to be recorded, that weaves in and out of a life well lived, loves won & lost, and simple musings of human nature…..
"I am, simply, happiest when I'm playing music, anywhere, anytime….It feeds my soul, and fills my heart to be expressed to the fullest. That I can share it, and maybe make a difference in someone's life, even for a short time, is the greatest gift, for which I am eternally grateful!" pm
