About Heather Holm

I’m Pamela’s older sister by two years. We grew up mostly in Nova Scotia with the same musical influences: going to church, singing in the car, junior choirs, piano lessons, learning guitar with 1970s pop and folk, school band, classical music concerts. She loved to sing, so I learned to harmonize.

Accordion became my main instrument, but music has not usually been my main gig; that would be web design. I’ve played in a few local band configurations in Nova Scotia: Cuckoo Moon, l’Ensemble à part, Salt and Heather, and others. I’ve been in a few recording studios. I consider myself a backup player – a legacy from being Pam’s sister.

I was gobsmacked and moved by the music manuscripts I found in Pam’s apartment after she died. I’m grateful to have the musical skills and sensibilities to edit and publish her songs so that others can find them and sing them and keep her music alive.

  1. My condolences to you regarding your sister, Pamela Holm. I was in one of her Community Choirs in Vancouver. I regularly take out my Christmas music and December and came upon a membership from Inchoiring. I looked at the music that she had arranged and thought to myself; "I wonder how she is doing?" I looked her up via Google to discover that she had passed away. Very sad for such a lovely, kind talented and the list goes on person to pass at a relatively young age. She had a wonderful ear and would say, "There is someone not on the note.. Is that you, Janene?' I would laugh and say, "No, it can't be me." She was very patient and dynamic and encouraged even the tone deaf singers. Surprisingly, through much practice, his singing improved and he even soloed. I never realized that Pamela was so involved in so many musical activities and pursuits. Just a lovely woman. I really remember her fondly. She challenged us to Spanish, German and Finnish music which is just wonderful. I still am in Community, Church, and Musical get togethers. My thoughts are with you as you journey through your loss. I lost my brother when he was 52 yr. old and still grieve for him. Two bright and shining stars not to be ever forgotten.
