Jeff Mamett is a singer-songwriter influenced by writers such as Guy Clark and John Prine. He is a storyteller whose songs have an authentic, earthy quality.
Growing up with horses and cows, made a deep imprint in his life, but music seemed to have the stronger hand. Jeff began learning the guitar at age 7 and by 12 was performing regularly with older players. After years as a sideman, recording and touring with various artists, he left the music industry to raise a family.
During that time he worked feedlots in the Texas panhandle, ran a cow/calf and stocker operation, and worked as a large herd consultant. Once the kids were grown, Jeff began writing and singing his own songs. His 2018 album, "Carry Me Back", was critically acclaimed.
