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.
