“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”

Q: What are your biggest influences and inspirations for writing and creating music?
A: thank you so much for the ? music bonds us all in a magical way no matter what style genre classification ,its spiritual, healing,touches on every emotion in our vibration!!!!! breaks down all cultural and sometimes moral beliefs.we all grew up on our parents tunes and our own peers favorites so we all get influenced i dont know persay i have one main influence i never want to limit myself ,cause music like us is timeless and infinite.When i write a song it almost writes itself i like to get a groove goin then words just flow but i say stick to what u know what is dear to your heart and has meaning ,folks can spot real a million miles away and lots of times what we lack in production skills or engineering we make up for in soul heart and lyrical feelin & emotion.Folks here a song at a time when they need it or in a certain mood we may write them the way we feel and know but that persons perception translates it beautifuly the way they need it to mean something in their lives,some folks and songs may be straight forward enough but metaphor is a beatiful mind exercise gets the creative juices flowing so i find alot of influence from folks like yourself right here on reverbnation. you can learn from a book but u cant learn to feel it from a book thats inside us and it will always shine through the world is our influence lets all soak it up!!!!!!!!!
