Enchanting, versatile songstress, PAMELA RUBY RUSSELL, draws from her own adventures - singing atop a Mayan temple, riding an elephant in a Mexican circus and living on a tropical island, to bring her Americana/AAA/World Country Pop flavored tunes alive for you. PAMELA RUBY RUSSELL''s independently produced CD, "HIGHWAY OF DREAMS" irresistably invites you to travel with her.
Her songs are perfect for use in film soundtracks, and could easily be recorded by other recording artists with sensitivity and depth.
Besides being a writer, singer and lyricist for most of her life, Pamela has been a restaurant owner, a Tarot card reader, a bar tender in the West Indies, an elephant rider in a Mexican circus, a house painter, a photographer and a vocal coach.
Her life is her art. She writes about finding the strength to make choices and accepting the unexpected twists and turns life presents us, all the while seeking the bliss, and a reason to live.
Hobos and boxcars, Mayan temples, full moons and tropical nights, muggers and policemen, soldiers and sisters of mercy, all looking for a home, a place to belong... accepting the finite, and learning to live this life to the fullest...
A two time BILLBOARD Song Contest award winner, Pamela has had songs aired on many radio stations in the New England area and on web radio as well.
So where did this eclectic beauty come from? An adventuress and an enthusiastic lover of life, Pamela has always sought to expand her horizons. She explains, "working sixteen hour days in a funky Cape Cod restaurant
I co-owned in Provincetown, MA wiped me out. I moved to St. Barth''s, FWI in the Caribbean to heal and clear my head, to feel the tropical breeze on my skin and get to know myself."
Designing jewelry, meeting incredible people and having fun in the sun, one day an exotic Frenchman challenged her as they walked through a bamboo forest. "So, what do you really want to do with your life?" Bittersweet memories of a little girl playing dress-up, creating fantasies to escape from, at times a not so wonderful reality, she and her grandmother going to the opera, the ballet, the beautiful old piano her now deceased mother bought for her, and hanging out with her friends1 bands in NYC coffeehouses, gave her a fertile place to begin to find the answer. She decided to return to the U.S. to learn how to put music to the pictures inside her head.
Pamela''s first rock band, "Beauty and the Beast" achieved recognition in Boston. Her second recording was picked up by Beantown''s WBCN. Doors began opening, including being approached by Gordon Meltzer (former manager-Miles Davis and tour manager-Foreigner and Cyndi Lauper), and other Industry interest.
Her life was forever changed, and the seeds were planted for her HIGHWAY OF DREAMS CD when Pamela''s godmother, a former Ziegfield Follies girl living in Mexico, asked her to come and visit. A week1s stay turned into almost a year, with stints as a cantina Tarot card reader and Mexican circus elephant rider. Ms. Ruby befriended Andean and mariachi musicians, retired bull fighters, expatriate mystery writers, learned some Spanish, wrote many songs and eventually picked up a bad case of typhoid fever. Pamela headed back to Boston, taking with her a bit of the warmth, generosity and beauty of Mexico that would remain in her heart and in her songs.
Months later she headed back to Mexico in search of the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon outside the puebla of Teotihuacan. She had decided to go to the sacred temple ruins alone at midnight on August 15th 1987, the eve of the Harmonic Convergence, in order to face a nagging fear of the dark. On her way, Pamela was approached by an old Indian man with a drum, and two women. The four of them scaled the barbed wire fence surrounding the ancient site and climbed to the top of the Citadel across from the Temple of Quetzalcoatl. Pamela began singing while the old man played his drum. The next morning before sunrise she went back to the ruins, where a crowd of pilgrims who had been camping at the base of the Temple thanked her for cleansing the sacred site with her voice. An elderly medicine woman asked her to climb up the steep crumbling steps of the Temple for her since she no longer was able to. This amazing moment is captured on HIGHWAY OF DREAMS in the haunting song "AVENUE OF TEARS".
Back in the USA, Pamela knew it was time to let herself be known!! The priceless result is her CD HIGHWAY OF DREAMS, now featured on web and Boston college radio stations and available for sale to you at:
