About

Few voices have the power to cut to the bone like Pam Rose’s. Layer that over her profound songwriting gift and her consummate musicianship on an assortment of instruments, and you begin to get a glimpse of a real artist.

With longtime writing partner Mary Ann Kennedy, Rose has been nominated for two Grammy Awards, and has won praise for her powerful alliance with Mary Ann as the acclaimed duo Kennedy Rose. The twosome won the ear of rock star Sting and recorded two CDs for his private label Pangaea Records. As an added treat, they were asked to open for him on one of his World Tours. As special guests of Emmylou Harris, Kennedy Rose also performed twice for President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton, and later at the Nobel Peace Prize Presentation in Oslo, Norway. As a solo artist, she has been touring with guitar virtuosos John Jorgenson and Tommy Emmanuel, and has recently rejoined Mary Ann Kennedy and Emmylou Harris to do an acoustic tour of Europe and North America in 2006 and 2007.

Born in Chattanooga, she moved with her family to Atlanta, then to Brevard County Florida where her father worked as a communications engineer for the Space Program. After majoring in Music at Florida State University, she lived in Atlanta and was mentored by musician Paul Mitchell before returning to Tennesse.

The fact that Rose has chosen to live in Nashville for most of her career has proven very beneficial for her career as a songwriter, and has added yet another facet to her range of influence. Many artists in country music as well as pop music have recorded her songs, ranging from Reba McEntire to Art Garfunkel. Some of these songs include “Ring on her Finger, Time on Her Hands”, “Safe In The Arms of Love” by Martina McBride, and the classic country/pop crossover ballad “I’ll Still Be Loving You”, by Restless Heart, which won her one of her Grammy Nominations.

Pam proudly plays Collings Guitars and uses Shubb Capos.
