Biography

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again -- There are no words to truly describe the phenomenal Pamala Stanley. Her unparalleled voice encompasses everything from the most intimate whisper to the soaring "bel canto" that is surely her trademark. And her vivacity and natural warmth allow her to connect with each and every person in audiences around the globe. Pamala has accomplished, and continues to accomplish, remarkable success in the music and entertainment industries.

By the age of ten, Pamala had recorded her first three singles, and by seventeen, she began her astounding solo career. After moving to New York in 1977, and finding additional success in national commercial work, Pamala landed a recording contract with EMI in Germany and began touring extensively. While recording in Berlin, Pamala wrote the album "This Is Hot" with Joachim Heider, her producer, and David Zippel [this recording also included songs from Lou Shere and Rhoda Roberts]. Eventually signing with EMI America, Pamala released "This Is Hot" in 1979. This single reached #13 on US Disco charts and received great acclaim in Europe, Mexico and South America.

In 1983, Pamala's remarkable single, "I Don't Want To Talk About it," written by her brother, James Lee Stanley, shot up to #13 on the Billboard Disco charts. This hit set the stage for tours throughout the United States, Mexico and Canada, and introduced Pamala to national television shows like Dance Fever. Her next single, "Coming Out of Hiding," was #4 on the 1984 Billbaord Disco charts. and the video received extensive worldwide airplay on networks, including MTV, Showtime,Top 40 Viseos and still being played. In 1986, Pamala's "If Looks Could Kill" single reached the top 20 in the Disco charts. Wide publicity followed with its inclusion in the Schwarzenegger film, "Raw Deal.

In 1992, Pamala stormed Las Vegas and blew away audiences at the Hilton, Sands and Riviera with her sensational voice and irrepressible style. While performing in Vegas, Pamala was offered a headlining spot at Evangeline’s in Ft. Lauderdale Beach and she formed the widely popular Pamala Stanley Band -- the hottest New Orleans Boogie Band in So. Florida. In 1996, responding to demand, the Pamala Stanley Band, with its Blues, Jazz and Boogie style, released "'Live and Cookin' ". This upbeat, live, outdoor concert CD wowed the critics and added fuel to Pamala's reputation for excellence. In late ‘97, Pamala made a critical career decision and left PSB to go solo. The break from The Pamala Stanley Band gave Pamala the time she had longed for to write originals, as well as the freedom to explore her multifaceted styles of singing and recording. Once again, responding to demand for her music, Pamala released "It's All In The Game", a recording filled to the brim with Jazz classics, which she recorded with the Eddie Higgins Quartet. She followed this recording with “This Is The Moment”, featuring her most requested and favorite Broadway tunes, and a compilation CD/DVD called “Looking Back: The Disco Years,” which included 15 songs spanning 1979-1989.

2003 brought a new adventure for Pamala when she began relationships with Norwegian, Celebrity and Royal Carribean Cruise Lines, as well as Atlantis events. Traveling extensively, she has cruised the Caribbean, South America, the Panama Canal, Hawaii, Alaska, across the Atlantic Ocean and throughout Europe, the Baltic and Iceland, touching people around the world with her sensational voice and her endless enthusiasm. Pamala’s popularity continues to grow beyond her wildest dreams and she feels so blessed by the friendship and support she receives from fans all over the world.

Pamala's new CD– Season’s of My Heart. An adult contemporary release filled with original songs, “Season’s Of My Heart” takes the listener on a journey through Pamala’s heart…where subtle shades of Blues, country and pop tell a story of love lost, love longed for and love found.
