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.
As a solo artist, she has recorded CDs, Morpheus, Fly and most recently The Temple Sessions. Since 2006, she has enjoyed a vibrant life of touring, rejoining Mary Ann Kennedy and touring as an acoustic trio with Emmylou Harris in North America and Europe, and traveling the world as a solo artist with Australian guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel.
For the better part of 2016, Kennedy & Rose will reunite with Emmylou Harris to tour as an acoustic trio, spotlighting the duo and treating the crowds to their impressive 3-part blend with Harris.
Pam’s song “Walls” (co-written with Kennedy and Randy Sharp) has become the signature song for the multi-national Interdependence movement, and she has performed it at peace events in Istanbul, Indonesia, Belfast, Berlin, Moscow and Mexico City.
As a guest artist, she has sung harmony with the likes of Art Garfunkel, Neil Young, and appeared on a host of hit records, most notably “How Do I Live Without You” by Leann Rhimes, and “Independence Day” with Martina McBride.
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.
The original musical compositions of Americana singer-songwriter Kim Person have been best described as “music written in the key of life.” An accomplished vocalist, finger style acoustic guitarist, and pianist, Kim has performed nationally and locally as a solo artist and with artists Pam Rose, Jill Colucci, Stephen Bennett, Judy Ward, Tommy Emmanuel, The Kinston Trio, and with her co-writer, Lana Puckett. Kim, along with her writing partner, Lana, have garnered an impressive list of career accomplishments including four-time finalists at the Kerrville New Folk Festival and first place winners at Napa Valley Folk Festival Emerging Songwriters Contest. Kim and Lana are nationally recognized for their award winning songwriting; most notably having their original song "Cornstalk Pony" recorded by ledgendary singer-songwriter Steve Gillette of Darcy Farrow fame. It is Kim's passion for the natural sound of the acoustic guitar that led her to becoming one of the most sought after acoustic guitar producers and recording engineers, working with Stephen Bennette, Martin Taylor, Frank Vignola, Pam Rose, Matt Thomas, and earning a Grammy nomination and earning her two Austrailian Golden Guitars for her work with Tommy Emmanuel.
