Born in the prairie town of Calhan, Colorado, pianist Warren is the granddaughter of a true cowboy. She came to Northeast Ohio in 1986 to begin her Bachelor's of Music at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, where she studied piano performance and jazz studies, with mentors Wendell Logan, Neal Creque and Kenny Davis. Following her 1990 Oberlin graduation, she earned a Masters in Music degree from Cleveland State University. Now living in Cleveland Heights, Warren is on the faculty at the Cuyahoga Community College Jazz Studies program (Metro Campus) and has taught since 1997 at the Cleveland Music School Settlement. She has performed and recorded with The Jazz Heritage Orchestra, the Afro-Cleveland Orchestra, Sammy DeLeon y su orquesta and other groups. She often plays out around town with her own trio or quartet. Wynton Marsalis, Clark Terry, Solomon Burke, Percy Sledge, Marcus Belgrave, and Terence Blanchard are among the notables she has performed with.
