A graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and Berklee College of Music, she has studied with Ray Santisi, Diana Krall and Donald Brown.

She is also in demand as a sideman, having performed and recorded with Conte Candoli, Joe LaBarbera, and John Clayton.
The L.A. Jazz Scene says, Pamela York plays each melody with a singers' grace and vibrancy. She plays music rather than technique." Pamela was one of five finalists in the 2006 Mary Lou Williams Women in Jazz Piano Competition chosen to perform at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Her new CD will be released this fall.
