Interview: Pamela Moore (Singer/Musician) (September 2017)

Singer, Pamela Moore.
Pamela Moore is a solo musical-artist from Seattle, USA. She also found fame with the band Queensryche in 1988's Operation: Mindcrime. She has also been a great vocalist (in my eyes) and continues to make music - starting in the early 80's with Solo Albums and Musical experience and style changes!

Tell me a bit about the NEW up-and-coming Album?
Well,  without saying too much…  the new album is being mastered right now, design for the cover artwork is underway and once all that is finished we will be announcing the name of the album and a release date with pre sales 3 months prior to the release date.   I’ve invited some stellar musicians to join me and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it!  Casey Grillo (Kamelot) on Drums, Rudy Sarzo (Ozzy Osborne, Quiet Riot, Whitesnake) on Bass, Randy Piper (W.A.S.P.) on Guitar and “spoken voice”, and Ralf Scheepers (Primal Fear) sharing his voice on a duet, with my guitar players and co-writers,  Michael Posch and Craig Church.

What Singers Inspired you growing up?
I was inspired by my cousin, Terri Nunn (Berlin)  Just watching her stage presence and confidence was beyond stunning… she still IS STUNNING, inside and out!   I’ve always been in awe of Paul Rodgers too! But, this question is so difficult because I have so many artists that have inspired me in so many different ways.

You have a Harder Metal sound on Resurrect Me Album... What was your Input?
MY input?  If I’m understanding you correctly perhaps it’s the many years that I worked with Queensryche.  Sharing the stage with Geoff was an embedded offering of inspiration and I would say that rubbed off on me.  But, I’ve always wanted to do a hard rock, metal album and finding the perfect collaboration for that was key.  It just seemed fitting.

Is there anybody you'd Dream to Collaborate with in Music?
Well,  I had a huge dream to work with Chris Cornell.  I can’t believe he is gone… such a loss we won’t ever be able to hear anymore new music from him.  His voice was incredible!  Chris could be gritty, clean, powerful and tender all in one song.  But, his inspiration lives on forever.  RIP Chris Cornell.

Over the Years, how do you feel attitudes to Female Singers have Changed? Positive - I Hope?
I’ve seen a lot of progress over the years as attitudes have changed toward Women In Rock and I would say, artistically, it feels more equal.   But, we still seem to place so much emphasis on how we “look” that some artists (men and women) may get “overlooked” because they don’t fit the “cookie cutter” image.  “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance”. ~ Aristotle.
