The concept for this poster design explores themes dealing with everything from 1960’s/70’s films to redefining the modern day femme fatale. The dreamy blues and pinks for the color palette and illustrations are based on vast desert landscapes as well as drive-in theaters. Complete with a hand-drawn typeface wrapped in southwest nostalgia and influenced by the colors and typefaces from vintage National Parks posters.

Pamela Flores is a singer/songwriter based in Bradley Beach, New Jersey. Her sound can be described as blues rock with a jazz influence. Think Janis Joplin meets Duke Ellington. Pamela has a soulful voice and a contagious smile. Her music has explored concepts of feminism, traveling, breakups, her roots in Chile, and her passion for working hard and helping others through her music.
Where are you from and where are you going?
P.F: New Jersey... I don’t claim any specific place because I spent my half of my childhood in one place and half in another.... I’m going wherever this ride called life takes me.
What made you want to become a singer and who were your major influences that still inspire you and influence your sound today?
P.F: Ever since I could remember it was all I wanted to be. My influences differ so much from one another but definitely Janis Joplin, Selena, Envogue, Lauryn Hill, Aretha Franklin, Disney princesses (because let’s be honest they were my most major influences as a child)
Which songs off of your EP are you most proud of writing? Do you prefer to play/write alone as opposed to playing in a group?
P.F I only have two original songs on my EP and I am proud of both. It’s hard to choose because they came from different places and different experiences. I like to write alone for the most part. Music to me is so intimate and writing from my heart and soul is such a vulnerable experience that I have to write at least the foundations of each song alone.
For a lot of people, music is their muse. Do you have other hobbies that you love just as much as music?
P.F Nothing compares to music. So lame and cliché I know, but I guess other than that I do love doing yoga and practice quite often.
