About

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Warren Hill began his musical journey on the guitar and vocals at the age of 7. In his first lesson, his guitar teacher simply asked him “tell me your favorite songs, and I’ll teach you how to play them.” It was this simple question that set the stage for Warren’s entire musical future: playing the music that he loved.

Since 1991, Warren has released 11 solo CDs which have reached combined worldwide sales of over 1 million copies. His live show is critically acclaimed as one of the best in his genre and has taken him around the globe, including Southeast Asia, Europe and the Caribbean. He has earned accolades from a variety of institutions including: six Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards, Berklee Distinguished Alumni, multiple SESAC Songwriter Awards, a Juno Nomination, multiple Number 1 songs at Radio & Records, USA Toda and Billboard. He has performed as a special guest for many artists, including the number 1 Pop hits "Baby I Love Your Way" with Big Mountain and "Tell Me What You Dream" with Restless Heart." In the field of Contemporary Jazz he has been heard on recordings with Chieli Minucci, Keiko Matsui, Jeff Golub, Steve Oliver, Special EFX, John Tesh, to name a few, many of which became number 1 songs. Still a vocalist at heart, Warren continues to include his vocals on his CDs, one of which reached Top 20 on the Billboard Charts in 1998 "Shelter From the Storm." His television credits include performances on Arsenio Hall, The Tonight Show and BBC's Top of the Pops....
