“I've recently been introduced to Louisville, KY folk artist Mammsie Graham's music, dubbed by some to be “the bad boy of folk”. He is a very interesting 'feller', I must say. His philosophy is much like that of John Denver, peaceful and calm. I take from his songs and words a feeling of "we're all here together, might as well make the most of each other". I find it amazing that such a nurtured sound comes from only a few years of songwriting.
In 2008 Mammsie first began playing guitar and never looked back. His style is a bit different from Folk I’ve heard in that he has swear words, an attitude and honestly, it seems like his approach to lyrics and mindset could stem from a hidden rock star child within. This is also a possibility since he has a unique style of percussion that he uses on his guitar.
Since 2008 he has written over 150 songs with a goal to “one day write a good song”, he says. With over 20,000 fans, most of #1 on Reverbnation for Folk he mus”
“Bleed that soul into our ears...love the sound of your shared experience...”

hey reviewed my song notin to lose heres what he said
"Hi there Thank you for your submission, This is an interesting track with a varied use of vocal and harmony techniques. I think it needs a little more structuring and tightening up. Great use of guitar and low melodies, very funky blues sounding. With a bigger production and some tuning on the overall sound this song could really stand out and become something a lot bigger. I feel it needs more of a build up towards the end"”
