(Pamela Hute - getting well earned recognition)
It thrills me no end to see artists whose work I have loved since Day One get the recognition they've worked so hard for. Last year I ran a cut off Pamela Hute's then-unreleased album Turtle Tales From Overseas. I had the feeling in my gut that Pamela Hute had a good shot of getting her music out to a huge audience all over the world. Well, the album came out on May 3rd to wonderful reviews and great sales and she hasn't looked back.
So tonight I thought I would take a slight look back, to 2006 when Pamela first got on My Space and the first track of hers I heard was Chocolate Soup. She has re-recorded it since, so this version could be considered something of a demo. But it's a great demo and a finished piece of work that, in my mind, needed no improvement. But then, this was the song that first got my attention and whatever flaws there may have been in it, certainly the artist heard and not me. I love this song and this version and I hope maybe you feel the same way.
Get her album if you haven't already. Hopefully she'll be touring the U.S. at some point.
