“This is where it really all begins,” says Brian, with his million-dollar smile. Around the age of 14, Brian started taking an interest in playing guitar. He says, “My older brother calls me one day, and says, “Brian, you’ve got to hear this”. As I’m listening, someone starts playing an AC/DC song on the guitar. At first I thought my brother was joking around with the radio. But what I was really hearing was someone PLAYING a solid black Gibson SG guitar, coming through a Marshall half-stack tube amp. Just like Angus Young of AC/DC plays! That’s what hooked me right there! After that, I was playing all the time.”
Brian started out on a little Yamaha acoustic guitar that his uncle Bob gave him.Warren says, “I would sit in my room for hours starting and stopping my favorite songs on cds – just to learn all the guitar licks.” When he was 16 years old, a group of buddies started a garage band, which would later be known as LOST CREEK. After school, they went their separate ways for awhile, during which Brian did factory work. During this time, music never left him. In fact, he got into some serious songwriting. Warren then got back into playing solo and with Lost Creek again. His working musician career took off! Brian plays about 80 shows a year at schools, concerts, restaurants, bars and clubs all over the state. People are drawn in by his clear voice and passionate singing and playing.Brian is a regular performer Friday Nights at the Commodore Hotel & Café.
