Pamela Means,singer, songwriter, guitarist

Pamela Means "one of the fiercest guitar players and politically-rooted songwriters in the music industry today," (Curve Magazine) is a Brooklyn-based, internationally-touring singer-songwriter and jazz musician.
Pamela Means brings her “mad guitar-and-vocal skills” (Time Out New York) and “insanely brilliant” tunes (Press Herald, Portland ME) to town along with her latest release, Precedent.

Pamela has shared the stage with artists including Ani DiFranco, Joan Baez, Neil Young, Shawn Colvin, Richie Havens, Patty Larkin, Melissa Ferrick, Violent Femmes, Pete Seeger, Janis Ian, Holly Near and many others.

Quoting her inspiration, Warrior Poet Audre Lorde, Pamela asks "I am myself- a Black woman warrior poet doing my work- come to ask you, are you doing yours?" With Truth as ammunition, a Pamela Means performance brings the fight for social justice and human dignity to the forefront of a new generation.
