"Peeks" Pammie Cobaugh
“Peeks” Pammie Cobaugh, is an 18 year old singer and songwriter from Havertown. Her style ranges from country, pop, alternative, and soul.
Vincent James, recording artist/composer/author, is passionate about the importance of music education. While busy with his own career, he launched the Keep Music Alive non-profit organization and two international music holidays: Teach Music Week (March) and Kids Music Day (October). Keep Music Alive now partners with over 1,000 music schools and organizations, music stores and other institutions that share his music education mission. They offer free lessons to new students and special events that benefit and celebrate kids playing music. Keep Music Alive also presents Musical Instrument Petting Zoo events in his hometown area, the Philadelphia region.
James has worn many “hats” in the music industry. He launched his music career as a songwriter penning “Rock & Roll and Wrestling Connection” in the mid-80s that was made into a music video by PRISM Television starring Cyndi Lauper, Hulk Hogan and Rowdy Roddy Piper. James later began managing local bands, worked in recording studios and eventually journeyed into the artist route releasing several recordings of his own. Highlights included the humorous “Y2K” song that was reviewed by Billboard and seen in the media – on the nationally syndicated Jenny Jones Show and in the local Philadelphia market. A few years later, James’ single “One More Night” aired on over 80 radio stations nationwide. Over the next decade James wrote dozens of custom love songs for weddings, anniversaries and other special occasions through his LoveSongs.com website.
James and his wife Joann wrote the book “88+ Ways Music Can Change Your Life”, first published in June 2015, that features inspirational stories about the positive impact music has played in changing lives. It includes over 100 stories contributed by more than a dozen celebrities. They are working on their next edition of the book.
