Pamela L. Dow is a music journalist/freelance writer specializing in blues music. The same passion and commitment she feels being a blues guitarist is equally identified throughout her written work surrounding this treasured format. If she's not playing the blues, she's writing about it.
Dow is a staff writer for numerous music- and blues-specific websites and Sound Waves Magazine. Her in-depth interviews and profiles offer the reader an intimate look at the artist, both personally and professionally. Dow's interviews and profiles have graced the cover of Sound Waves, made featured artist of the month for Blues Free Press, showcased at Blue Coupe, including publication at Blues On Stage, Perfect Sound Forever and Rambles.NET. Her concert reviews recreate the sights and sounds of each event as if you were there, and her CD reviews provide detailed information about specific tracks, the overall presentation and message of a new recording. You'll find her concert and CD reviews at Blues Free Press, Minor 7th, Blue Coupe, Just Like Honey, Roots 66, Blues On Stage, Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange, FM Sound, Musical Discoveries, Rambles.NET and Sound Waves.
