Music is one of the cultural aspects of society. It is an art, a form of expression, and entertainment. It can stimulate the senses and change a mood. Music is so powerful that it can influence a person and draw a crowd. Through the years, music has helped individuals grow, improve creativity, and foster relationships.
Musicians come from around the world with different styles and genres. All of them promote individuality, uniqueness, and their passion for music. While there are thousands of musicians worldwide, one artist stands out from the rest and leaves a lasting impact on listeners because of the refinement, excitement, and joy in her singing style – Pam Brennan.
“What is most striking about Brennan’s voice is not the acrobatics that is heard on so many albums these days, but the respectful refinement and the excitement and joy you can hear in her voice singing these tunes,” shared Jeff Becker of Jazz Sensibilities.
Pam Brennan is a very talented singer who is jazzing up the music industry with her emotive voice. Tagged as a fresh voice in the American Songbook fabric.
She performs in front of a live audience with her band, The Pam Brennan Quintet.
Brennan is also the beautiful voice behind the album Moonglow, a collection of soothing jazz songs that will take listeners on an intensely romantic journey. The Vocalist of The Pam Brennan Quintet, along with her bandmates, Ron Afiff – Guitar, Richie Iacona – Piano, Tom Kirchmer – Bass, and Tony Tedesco – Drums, carefully curated jazz standards that may not be played as often as some others, but these songs speak to its listeners and lift their spirits. The group came up with 11 of the most heartfelt jazz tunes and rendered their versions, thus the Moonglow CD was born.
But before the success of the Moonglow album, Brennan has had her fair share of singing experiences that trained her to be the singer that she is now.
Brennan has been singing since she was a little girl. She started her music career as a young lady, singing different genres such as country, folk, pop, and rock. She was also able to work with the late, great Richie Havens, a memory that she is deeply fond of. Her first professional gig was in Japan, where she sang jazz music—the kind of music that she considers to be her home. It was during these times that she became grounded in the American Standards, the same songs she also grew up listening to and singing along.
Further into her music career, she spent 10 years in Japanese piano bars in New York. She also did a bit of Cabaret with a trio.
Then in 2010, she started covering some lesser known songs from the 1960s with Side B.
A few years later, she went back home—that is, jazz music.
