Dave Ruben of Guitar Player Magazine said, “Jimmy Warren is as good as it gets.” For over twenty-five years Warren has been tearing up the guitar, while sharing the stage with numerous music legends. A versatile guitarist who pushes beyond his limits, Warren has been called a “powerful guitarist” by Alligator Records President Bruce Iglauer and a “smooth guitarist with a great feel” by legendary bassist Chuck Rainey (Steely Dan).
Warren’s upcoming EP Thunderclap Sessions (Fretbar Records; Release Date: May 7, 2021) has been called a “super solid project with emotional tone” that will make the listener want more. Backing Jimmy on new the new EP are the top-notch rhythm section of bassist Johnny Griparic (Slash, Richie Kotzen, Walter Trout) and drummer, Michael Leasure (Walter Trout, Edgar Winter, Buddy Miles).
