“Pam Tate, who was new to us, has a winning, distinctive sound and a gift for theatrical immediacy.” – Barbara & Scott Siegel (September 11, 2001 – The Musical Response)



"Her songs brush literary quality imagery against sparkling melodic canvases of pop, torch and even reggae. Throw in enough hooks to fill a tackle box, and Tate’s work can’t help but overwhelm mainstream aficionados." – Music Monthly



“…with a haunting vibrato that sizzles, this is one versatile singer who is very focused and unafraid to strip emotions bare with a powerhouse delivery and a divine poignancy that captivates the room.” – John Hoglund (NY Native)



“She’s based her several different styles on Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Dinah Washington, Martha Reeves, Aretha… I also heard Laura Nyro, Streisand at her best, even a little Janis. But it comes out all Tate, in a big, full voice capable of anything from heartfelt intimacy to soaring off heroically into final chorus fades.” – Stereophile Magazine



"Singer Pam Tate has pipes the White House would kill for. She’s an awesome belter with enough power to fill an arena." – The Record (North Jersey)
