Add to Calendar 2013-04-12 8pm & 10pm 2013-04-12 Warren Hill at The Additon 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.

In 2002 Warren had an idea to create an event that would bring his fellow artists and fans together for a brand-new musical experience. He created the concept for the world's first Smooth Jazz Cruise. After two years of development and planning, Hill launched "Warren Hill's Smooth Jazz Cruise" in January 2004. It was an instant success. So much so that it spawned additional cruises mimicking Hill's design. After three years of sold-out cruises, Warren decided to move on to other projects and handed over the reigns of his cruise to the capable hands of the late, great Wayman Tisdale. Seven years later, Warren's initial concept and design are still producing several sold-out cruises per year, earning him the right to be referred to as a music business "pioneer."

The true loves of Warren's life are his wife of 16 years, Tamara and their 13 year old daughter, Olivia. He has written countless hits dedicated to them, including "The Passion Theme," "Our First Dance," "Tamara," "U R the 1," "Olivia" and "Still in Love." Olivia is now getting ready to take over the role of "star" in the family, as her career is beginning to take off. She has a feature film "Olivia Rox" being released as one the the world's first family oriented webisode series. Olivia is an incredible singer/songwriter with over 200 songs composed since the age of 4. A natural performer, Olivia starred in the role of Annie for 75 shows during the summer of 2009, receiving an Ovation Award Nomination from the critics.

Currently Warren is working on several projects including: a new CD; his daughter's CD and next film; his online Sax Club - with student members around the globe; concert promotion; and an innovative new internet music series. When he is not working, he enjoys the outdoors for long family walks with the dogs, jogging, cycling and swimming. Although if you ask him his response would be "Technically I don't feel like I ever stop working. Even when I go for a jog, I'm working on some new song or arrangement in my head. But I'm not complaining!"
