Brian Warren is an independent Canadian singer/songwriter with a sound rooted in smooth vocals, luscious surf guitars, and gritty Latin rhythms. His songs are a characteristic fusion of folk rock, surf music, and heartfelt songwriting that is as honest as it is infectious. On stage, Warren is backed by a killer band that features a Regina Symphony Orchestra bassist, a Cuban-trained conga player, sultry saxophone, and drumming that’s heavy on feel.

Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Warren has never stayed anywhere for long. At 19, he left Canada with a guitar and a backpack. He lived and worked in Seattle, Denver, and then traveled further, to Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. After settling down in the Canadian prairies, Warren spent years working the drums for a living, all the while, tinkering with his love for song craft. Since 2010, he has recorded two self-produced albums, playing almost every instrument himself, with some notable contributions by talented friends. In the Dead of Winter (2010) and Summer in the Dark (2012), both available on iTunes, represent a diverse array of genres and instruments, engaging various aspects of love and life through changing seasons.


In addition to his own music, Warren keeps a busy schedule with other musical and artistic projects. He currently plays drums with Latin-rockers, Andino Suns, as well as the Down Home Boys, a rock and roll bluegrass band. He is also an emerging music videographer, most notably in the single-handed production of the Andino Suns’ video, “Cantando el Pajaro.”
