Pamela Helmer McNeill

Eden Prairie’s Own Singer-Songwriter Joins Minnesota Music Legends

On April 19th, 2024, the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame inducted Eden Prairie’s greatest resident singer-songwriter: our very own Pamela McNeill. 

A native of Winona, Pamela has written for many artists including lyrics for Yanni and songs for Wynonna. Pamela has also released seven original studio albums, including American Breakup (2002), Hurtsville, USA (2014), and Neon Lightning (2022). Her induction celebrated Pamela’s long commitment to her craft – and placed her among legends.

“Prince. Bob Dylan. Judy Garland. When I first learned I would join such a rich company of artists, I was moved to tears,” Pamela reflected. “All it took were decades of practice, a million rehearsals and auditions, and more shows than I could count. It’s been a tremendous and rewarding journey, and receiving this honor was its highest point.”

See Pamela perform live! May 17th at Pioneer Place on Fifth in St. Cloud, May 30th at The Dakota in Minneapolis, and June 7th and 8th at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres. Wave After Wave, Pamela’s new six-song EP recorded in Nashville, releases in July. |
