Hey.

Mamet’s voice is one of the best around. Her sound is smoky, sensual, folksy, emotive and controlled.
— Art Edelstein (Times Argus, VT)
 

Origins

Singer and songwriter, Willa Mamet was born in a trunk and raised by performers of all kinds.   She’s made music since about that time, singing irrepressibly and playing piano and guitar. With her musical partner, Paul Miller, she recorded two albums, East Hill Road and Let Somebody Love You, both of which won the VT Times Argus “Tammy” Album of the Year in 2013 and 2015.  Her next album will be born Spring 2020. Meanwhile, she plays out sola, with Miller, and other beloveds, bringing her unique blend of rapier tongue and honey heart to audiences everywhere. Hear the voice that Patti Lupone calls, “Heartbreaking. Musical. Contemporary and ancient.”

Willa lives in Oakland, CA, with her beloved upright, her uncle’s guitar, a whole lot of elderberry bushes, and her six-pawed cat. She travels. A lot. For music.



What’s she up to when not making music? Offering Bodywork in her holistic health practice and making Judaica. What else should a musician do on days off?

Willa’s gorgeous vocals are warm and silky,
