Pamela Machala


The New SCENE Magazine

"The piano is the core of her signature soulful and jazzy pop sound. And that sound has helped her find a niche, and plenty of partnerships."

Denver Westword

"Machala’s witty, eclectic, and charmingly technical take on piano-pop is catchy, engaging, and thought-provoking all at once. Her stage presence sits somewhere between a cool, laid-back grace and the inner-workings of a pop-mastermind trying not to shine too bright."


"Pamela Machala kicks and booms on the keys, and she croons with conviction. She has no anxious inner voice warning her to 'reach the note' or 'nail the transition.' Her songs become her, and when she reaches us, we aren’t quite sure how we feel, but we feel so much. That, to me, is a mark of a great player: one who induces disorientation, who provides the listener a multitude of emotions at once with opposing forces like tumult and serenity, elation and sorrow."

Twin Cities Newscastic

"The meticulously masterful song-craft of Pamela Machala is the perfect soundtrack for a Twin Cities Saturday. The feel is both modern and familiar, like a new offering at your favorite restaurant."

"Singer/Songwriter Pamela Machala provides us with a truly soulful, fresh sound that inspires us to question, and tempts us to love deeper. For a soft-spoken person upon first contact, her singing voice bursts forth with a soulful edge inspired by greats like Aretha Franklin & Patti LaBelle, while her classically shaped round sound, and musical writing style - influenced by Joni Mitchell - give her a truly unique flavoring one cannot bear to miss. When Pamela is playing in town near you, GO EXPERIENCE HER."
