Captured Tracks

Pamela first became involved in the music industry as a 19-year-old intern for Ba Da Bing Records and Chouette Promotions in 2006, just as Beirut's Gulag Orkestar was garnering acclaim. That same year, she began working at longtime New York City cultural bastion, the record store Other Music, where she was a buyer, helping to curate the store's taste, as well as in charge of the store's mail order and customer service business. Throughout this time, she toured extensively as a member of Blank Dogs and Widowspeak and became closely acquainted with Brooklyn indie stalwart, Captured Tracks. Today, she is the label's manager, overseeing the brand's catalog and guiding new signings. Within Omnian Music Group – the umbrella company founded by Mike Sniper to house Captured Tracks, Sinderlyn, 2MR, and Manufactured Recordings – Pamela also holds the role of Head Project Manager and her responsibilities in that position include overseeing all other Project Managers and production, assisting in retail and digital marketing and A&R for new releases as well as reissues. She has overseen album campaigns by Mac DeMarco, DIIV, Wild Nothing, Molly Burch – her recent signing – and more.
