John W. Warren, composer and Latin American classical guitarist, has performed extensively in the United States and Latin America. He performs the music of Brazil, Cuba, Latin America, and Spain; his own compositions; and arrangements of popular songs.

Warren performs original compositions and pieces by Latin American composers on classical, acoustic, and electric guitar. Warren has presented concerts, radio performances, and performed at private and corporate events throughout the United States, and in Brazil, Bolivia, Mexico, and Spain. He is a regular contributor to Acoustic Guitar and Classical Guitar magazines.

Warren performs solo at more intimate house concerts, and with sensational Brazilian percussionist Bruno Lucini at larger Groupmuse gatherings.
