Doug Wamble (born Samuel Douglas Wamble, October 22, 1972) is an American jazz guitarist and vocalist from Tennessee.
Wamble grew up Memphis, Tennessee. He was inspired to play guitar after hearing records by Charlie Christian. He entered Memphis State University intending to pursue audio engineering, but he changed his mind after seeing Harry Connick Jr. and Russell Malone in concert. He switched to the University of North Florida, then got a master's degree from Northwestern University. At North Florida, he met pianist Roy Dunlap, bassist Jeff Hanley, and drummer Peter Miles, with whom he would later form a band.
In 1997, Wamble moved to New York City, where he met Wynton Marsalis. He played guitar on Big Train (1999) by Wynton Marsalis and Traveling Miles (1999) by Cassandra Wilson and signed with Marsalis Music. He released his debut album, Country Libations, in 2003. He was formerly married to opera singer Janna Baty.
He performed on the soundtrack for The War, a television documentary about World War II directed by Ken Burns. He contributed music to Burns's documentaries The 10th Inning and Prohibition and completed the original score for Burns's feature The Central Park Five. He produced the album Hunter (Epic, 2014) by vocalist Morgan James, whom he married in 2016.
