Pam Duronio & Tim
Where voice & guitar meet with a most unique interpretation of today's jazz

Originally from Up-State, New York, Pam started singing as a teenager in
various R&B, Soul and Mainstream venues while also studying classical
and drums. During this period, she was introduced to recordings by
Billie Holiday and other legendary jazz
vocalists, whom she greatly admired. Their scat singing and vocal
nuances presented new options for Pam. You will hear a
blend of all these influences flowing throughout her singing while she
maintains her own unique vocal style and expression.
As a young boy,
studied guitar privately and became a professional musician
in his teens playing in and near his home town of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His
diverse exposures range from
Howard Roberts and Johnny Smith to Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana & others. Tim has
a keen sense for rhythm and even became adept at playing hand drums. Tim has
developed his own special brand of sound.
After working together in Milwaukee, Pam and Tim performed throughout
the U.S., South Pacific and Caribbean as well as various regional venues. They
eventually settled in the Milwaukee
area. Coincidentally, both came from families of home building and real
estate and consequently developed a real estate brokerage called
Real Estate while
continuing to perform their music.
