Marv Ramsey


Marv Ramsey originated in Munising, Michigan and was moved around many places before settling in the Children's Farm Home in Corvallis, Oregon at about 12 years old.

He can't remember a time when he wasn't thinking about cowboys and horses - and music.   He started playing music around 11 or 12, and was playing professionally by 18.   He's written songs since he was a kid, and poetry just followed along, becoming a natural extension of his writing.

His passion for horses and music has never waned, and he's been training horses for over 30 years.   He still consults and works with folks with problem horses.   His son, Lonnie, has followed in his footsteps, becoming a very good horse trainer as well, and his daughter Jeanine never misses one of Marv's shows at the local cowboy gatherings.

He's currently putting things together to make a CD, featuring one of his latest songs - which is showcased on Reverbnation.
