Pamela Hart

Pamela Hart is highly regarded as Austin, Texas’ finest jazz vocalist. Noted by Austin Women’s Magazine as “Austin’s First Lady of Jazz,” audiences rave about Pamela’s excellent pitch, clarity and soothing vocal quality. “Her warm, clear tones and meticulously controlled pitch carry an illusion of effortlessness”—Tribeza Magazine. Her sultry rendition of classic jazz standards and contemporary music wins immediate acceptance by any audience. Born in Los Angeles, California, Pamela moved to Austin, Texas in 1982. In addition to regular appearances at Austin clubs, restaurants, live music broadcasts, weddings, banquets/parties and festivals, Pamela and her husband Kevin Hart have produced (and she has performed in) the semi- annual Women in Jazz Concert Series—the greatest events for female jazz musicians in Texas—1994 through 2013. The series also includes a Vocal Performance Workshop where Pamela and other professional vocalists and musicians share performance techniques, communicating with musicians and many other aspects of jazz singing. Throughout her singing career, Pamela has repeatedly opened shows for, and shared stages with, many popular artists including Miss Nancy Wilson (2000, 2001); David ‘Fathead’ Newman (1997, 2008); Dianne Reeves (1999, 2001); Kirk Whalum (1998); Rachelle Ferrell (2005); Patrice Rushen with Teri Lyn Carrington (2007); Joyce Cooling, Pamela Williams, Althea Rene (2009); Norman Brown and Richard Elliot (2011); Bobbi Humphrey (2012) In addition to regular appearances in local venues, live music broadcasts, weddings, and banquets, Pamela and her husband Kevin Hart have produced (and she performed in) the annual Women in Jazz Concert Series in Austin, 1994-2013.
