Pam Sawyer

Pamela Sawyer is an American-based songwriter from Romford, East London, most noted for her tenure at Motown Records from 1967 to 1977, though she had enjoyed success prior to that, including hits for the Young Rascals and Lulu, writing with Lori Burton, with whom she also recorded as the Whyte Boots.

Sawyer co-wrote several hits for artists such as The Supremes, Diana Ross, Michael Jackson and others during her time at the label. Among her co-compositions are singles such as "Love Child", "Love Hangover" and "My Mistake (Was to Love You)". One of her regular writing partners was Gloria Jones. Sawyer has also written for many non-Motown artists, including The O'Jays and Patti LaBelle & the Bluebelles.
