Pamela is a frequent live performer in the Front Range area of Colorado. Her new album will drop in the spring of 2020, and will be available on Spotify, Apple Music, BandCamp and on her website.

Westword says:

"Machala's witty, eclectic, and charmingly technical take on piano-pop is catchy, engaging, and thought-provoking all at once," and nominated Machala for Best Pop Act of 2019.

ABOUT PAMELA MACHALA

Singer/songwriter Pamela Machala ("MOCK-uh-luh") sounds like a warm embrace between the timeless pop sensibilities of Carole King and the R&B-inspired harmonies of Stevie Wonder. 

BolderBeat says of her newest album, "The grand takeaway from When I Get Home is this: Pamela Machala is a big, fresh talent to keep an eye on...Machala’s vocal performances are revelatory…It’s that catchy; it’s that well-executed by Machala, who may be a transcendent talent; and it’s that well-produced."

American Songwriter Magazine awarded Machala an Honorable Mention in their July/August 2018 Lyric Contest for her original song “Cardboard Cutout.” The South Florida Folks Festival selected her as a finalist for their 2020 singer/songwriter competition.

About her winning song: “I sometimes refer to Bleeding Me Dry as my "La La Land" song because it was inspired by the scene in that 2016 movie where Emma Stone's character decides to quit acting. I think many people who work in the arts have experienced a moment of feeling "I can't do this anymore, it hurts too much." I have been there on several occasions with my music career. My hope is that the song resonates with other artists and helps us feel less alone in those moments."

We're thrilled to welcome Pamela to our roster of Grand Award winners, and can't wait to see what her future holds!
