A musical message of hope
The COVID pandemic and recent flood disaster events affected many townships across NSW. Pam's personal experiences within the big river cane country community of Maclean during this time has left its mark on her heart sound and style, inspiring her to write her most recent single release song "Big River Run".
Pam explains how the resilience she witnessed from within her local community gave light to this piece.
That's what rivers do, they keep flowing, just like the community here. They're really strong and resilient. They just keep moving forward.
Local businesses and independent artists collaborated in times of need creating an event to help lift the spirits of the devastated community. Pam was contacted to join the fundraising event relief efforts just after she and her family had been relocated out of their home by the SES.
"I received the call while standing in the evacuation centre. When we can help we should help, if it is in our power to do so."
"Big River Run" became the message of hope Pam used to directly contribute to the local community. With the help of Flat Jack's Sound Shack for the studio version, PTP Studio 31 and FM 103.1, Pam was able to have the single ready to air and was able to donate proceeds to the cause.
