Pamela Hopkins has taken an interesting road to her current status as a working musician. Prior embarking on a full time career in music, the singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist raised her kids, worked in law enforcement and was a Middle and Elementary school English teacher. These days, when she’s not in the recording studio working on her own original music, you’ll find her entertaining audiences at piano bars in her hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas.
Pamela introduced her brand of autobiographical singer/songwriter fare to the streaming world in 2018 with the EP “With or Without You.” That record represented Hopkins’ return to recording after a 20 year hiatus. Since then she has released a steady string of original material. Although her sound usually leans Country, she is equally adept at Pop and Rock material. She has even recorded her own version of the Cranberries’ Alternative classic, “Zombie.”
Over the past few months Pamela Hopkins has been hard at work writing and recording. She’s and now ready with a handful of fresh new songs to be released throughout the year. She co-wrote each tune with various Nashville writers. “Little Things” is the first of those singles, released on February 5, 2021. The track is a touching Country love song duet featuring Pamela and co-writer Matt Dame. Opening with a mostly acoustic arrangement the track builds gradually into a full Nashville production. The band is excellent throughout. There is some particularly nice slide guitar, later in the tune. Meanwhile Pamela and Matt sing a touching tale about the beautiful simplicity of a loving relationship.
