Bio

John W. Warren is a classical guitarist, composer, and publisher, originally from Santa Cruz, California, now residing in the Washington DC area. Specializing in Latin American classical guitar, Warren performs his own compositions as well as the music of Baden Powell, Agustín Barrios Mangoré, Leo Brouwer, Luis Bonfá, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Eduardo Falú, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and many others.

"Classical Guitar" magazine says "Warren has a lovely, lyrical style," and of his CD, says "Warren’s title track is warm and Latin in style, with a nice melody and harmonies. Leo Brouwer’s arrangement of 'Drume Negrita' follows, with a new interlude composed by Warren… Antonio Lauro’s short 'La Catira' is a rarity that Warren plays very well. There are also two pieces by Baden Powell: 'Berceuse a Jussara' is a work I had not heard before—Warren dispatches it with an almost jazz-like touch that suits the piece nicely; and 'Afro Sambas' is complex and highly rhythmic through-out… "

Warren has performed throughout the United States, and on the radio and in concert in countries such as Brazil, Peru, and Mexico. He is a regular contributor to "Classical Guitar" magazine on topics such as composition and improvisation.
