Lee Warren is the son of a once successful bluegrass musician, Mike Warren. He was inspired at a young age to pick up the guitar and follow in his fathers footsteps....until he discovered Led Zeppelin! While primarily a cover artist, Lee has no problem throwing a bluegrass or country lick right up in some Aerosmith or a blues lead over a Johnny Cash song. It's good to mash things up once in awhile.

"I want people to be able to sing along because they recognize the song, but somewhere in the song I want them to pause and be like wait, what?!"

At 33 years old, Lee makes his living performing for enthusiastic audiences from the Midwest region all the way down to Tennessee. So if you get the chance stop on out. Bring your friends, your requests, and your appreciation for the one thing that surely connects us all, music!

“Americana rock and roots” is the way Jimmy describes the music that he plays.
He started playing guitar at age 19 and immediately fell in love with the instrument. He began by teaching himself songs by the Beatles, Bob Dylan and acoustic music of the late 60’s and early 70’s. Over the next several years, he played in various types of bands including folk, bluegrass, country and rock and roll. As he began to listen to swing and jazz, he developed more interest in songwriting, especially the music from the American Songbook by Irving Berlin, Cole Porter and the Gershwins.


In recent years, Jimmy has fallen back in love with the blues and plays songs by many of the great blues legends such as Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and Eric Clapton. From simple folk, to Beatles-influenced rock, delta blues, Motown-flavored R&B, country or Swing Jazz, his music reflects elements from all these styles of music. Jimmy now lives in St. Joseph Michigan where he performs at various venues throughout Southwest Michigan and the Michiana area.
