The Music and Art of Pamela Holm
Pamela left us a rich collection of her original songs – melodic, poetic, luminous.
Her sister, Heather Holm, continues to add Pam’s music, art, poems, stories and other creative output to this website.
Some of her songs were recorded, even if only roughly for her own use. Many were not, so I’ve been getting them recorded by talented friends.
Browse the items below, or use the menu. There is also biographical information, a chronicle of her final illness, a video of the Memorial Service and more, under “Remembering Pamela”.
