This is a story by singer-songwriter Pamela Maurer formerly of Poor Elvis. While her background is in theatre and art, her craft these days is performing music under the nom de plume Baby Money. This May, she released her first album of original songs, In Memory of John Doe, which was greatly inspired by 1960s girl groups, soul, old time revival, gospel, and traditional rhythm ‘n’ blues. The album has been in regular rotation in the CHIRP library. This story is about Pamela’s first impression of Pittsburgh and how it allowed her to embrace her inner weirdo.
