Comment: I knew Warren as a "local" in Emergency Exit with Bram Peterson and Richard Augustine when I was a vocalist in Thumper and The Press in the early '80s. Not only could Warren out-wail ANYbody around, but he was also one of the best bassists we ever saw. Awesome, amazing talent. Just amazing....

Comment: I only knew Warren when he was one of us "locals" - down here in San Diego in the seventies, we worked at the same bars, played to the same crowds, and "sat in" on each other's stages. He was a truely great and gifted musician. Although this site speaks mostly of his vocal abilities, I always thought he was one of the best bassists I have ever worked with, and could really "drive" a groove. I was very sad to here of his passing, but "If there's a rock and roll heaven..." they have a hell of a bassist/vocalist now.

I'm still sad as hell you're not around but listening to you sing makes me feel better. And I can still hear you saying "Oh, Claire! Oh, Claire!" For that matter, so can Claire. (We both miss you)

Comment: I'm Michael Thompson's brother. I was privelaged enough to hear Warren play and sing for years with Exit, Stratus, and others. As a kid watching him play and sing I tried to emulate is bass playing style. It was as good as his singing! When my brother left Exit, I was the one they hired to fill those big shoes.
The band disbanded a year and a half later, but it is a time in my life I will never forget. Playing with Warren made me realize just how great he, Ed Cook, and Tom Hankla were
together. Today as I still perform, rarely does a gig go by that I don't think back to those times. Warren is missed.

I know you could have helped all of us with your beautiful voice singing our nation's songs, but I know now that you are in a better place.....and that you are safe.

Comment: I have been totally immersed in two new businesses and obviously a bit out of touch. I just heard of Warren's passing.
Honestly, what Warren did for me in sharing that amazing voice has made me so very proud to have met and worked with him. Those of us who have cut tracks with warren know that feeling in the room when he is singing. Everyone starts smiling, shaking our heads in disbelief of how great it sounds in the studio with the giant speakers tuned so perfectly in the control room.
Hearing this man sing a ballad in a major studio through a vintage Neumann tube microphone with a solid engineer at the board will make you cry! I know because I did!
I swear it was a completely emotional experience. He felt and delivered the music like no one else I ever heard, and he did it on the first take!
I can just listen to the songs for hours on end (still) in complete disbelief that my songs could sound like this! He really shocked me!
Warren was suggested and connected by a friend who is in the jingle business. I had this ballad, and I wanted to find a really strong voice with convincing emotion. I always said that... but this time it actually happened!
When Warren came into the studio, I was surprised that he was so big. Then when he spoke I was stunned again that he was so childlike, and shy.
Well, he completely blew my mind when he sang the first pass on the lyric. It's the one we kept! I just sat there "shocked." My eyes were watering, and I didn't even know what to say! I think I just nodded my head a little, and tried to remember to breath. I was, and remain, blown away by this guy! This voice! He was just a total pro, a kind and gifted man.
The ballad was picked up by producer Denny Diante, but still remains unreleased. Warren commented several times that he really liked the song. He made me very proud because I knew with whom he worked, and I'm not in this league. He made my songs sound so much better then I thought they could be. My fingers are crossed!
Thanks Warren, I am so lucky to have met and worked with you in the studio! One of my favorite memories is when you first started singing my song... I was just speechless! We did two songs that day; I just wish we could have done more!
Ironically, the ballad is called "Don't Know How To Say Goodbye".
You are missed!

Comment: Tonight I heard a part of a song that reminded me of another song. I couldn't recall at the time what song it was; only that it had a profound impact on me as a person. I remembered that it was the type of song is truly rare, the type that reaches through the grit and grime of today's daily, empty life and touches your very soul. Now, the part of the song I remembered was a very specific part and it was it was who sang it that affected me so. As I drove home, I turned off the radio, and began to try and recall the song and the singer. It wasn't until I reached home that I recalled the song, "Voices that Care" and that last part of the song, " . . . feel in your heart our love burns bright”. With much haste I rummaged through my CD collection, (which were somewhat dusty since the on set of the MP3), searching for that CD. I found it and plugged it in and listened to the whole thing. And it occurred to me, that the better version of the two (in my humble opinion) was the Demo. Now, you didn't have the power of Celine or the rap style of Agent "J", but you had a feeling that carried through the notes and lyrics that just wasn't there in main track. I decided that I had to find out who that artist was and get more music from him. It is with great sadness and surprise that at the same time I found that person to be Warren Wiebe, I found that he had left this world.
I have related this story here tonight, so that you his fans and wander-byer's can see an example of how this WONDERFUL vocalist touched someone in a way that wasn't even recognizable until years later. Gabriel Raya has certainly done his memory a service with this wonderful site.
Thank you Warren, and my most sincere condolences to his friends and loved ones. I have no doubt that the angels shed a tear when they had to escort Warren from this life.
God must truly have a taste for good music, for he claims all the good ones far too early.

Comment: I have known Warren since Jr. High School. We weren't close friends in the beginning but as the years turned into high school and I began dating my husband, Tom, we all became friends. In fact, I remember a time long ago that he talked me into changing my hair style, this happened while he and Tom were trying to straighten their hair. (The funny things you remember from the past) Memories of him eating tacos that I cooked for him, boy could he eat!! Alot of you talk of hearing Warren sing.....I was very lucky to hear him for many years while he was in Emergency Exit with Tom. We were so very blessed to have him sing at our wedding 26 years ago this month in Borrego Springs, CA. His voice has always brought me great joy! He was a wonderful friend and we have alot of great memories of him...from band practices, to Warren and Tom riding motorcycles. If only you all could have known him! We miss you Warren and I still remember watching you sing on stage at Mom's Saloon. We love you and hope that you are at peace!

Comment: I first heard him from the ending song of the anime Gundam X... His song Human Touch was just so heartwarming and it really does have a deep meaning when you listen to it.And I am sad to hear the fact that he's already passed away... His voice is somewhat kind of haunting now, I mean, now that I know that fact it's just not the same. But who are we to judge on this subject maybe it was God's will for him...
Thanks for this website...I'm sure many more fans of his would really be grateful...If I were to be an artist like him I'd dedicate all my songs to him and his family, friends and the fans...

I met up with Warren again and was honored that he used my song on one of his demos. It meant a lot to me since I had a lot of respect for Warren and his music! I was sad to hear of his passing away, although he will always be remembered by me and many others. It's upsetting when such a good natured and talented person is taken away from us!

Comment: The first time I heard Warren I was amazed of the pure voice he had. It was in the River of Love CD with David Foster that I knew this singer was special. I live in the east coast so west coast music is sometimes hard to find but I find alot of stuff with Warren most background vocals but I make sure I buy it. When I heard he past away I was shocked but his music will always be his reminder that god is looking and he also shares cause Warren was heaven sent. Well I know Jeff Porcaro and Warren are jammin up there.
I will always be a big fan Warren we miss u man!.

Comment: I must confessed that I signed the previous entry before browsing the entire site. I didn't know Warren was involved in so many songs & albums. When I first heard Human Touch I was so impressive by his voice. Now I only wish someone could compile all his songs into one album in tribute of him. People should know more about Warren and his songs. The revenue from these album could either be given to his family or some charitable organisation or to fund some research for diseases like Muscular Atrophy/Dystrophy, Aids and what nots. Just thinking aloud, pardon me.

Comment: Great to see that Warren has his own site now! He deserves it so much. I first heard him on a Quincy Jones record on a duet with Gloria Estefan (Is it love that we're missing). I was immediately attracted by his remarkable voice. Since then his name has been in my head and I looked for other music that featured him. Shortly after his tragic passing, I read the news on the Internet, while looking for information about Warren. I was shocked. I am a musician myself and I consider everybody, who plays music, a brother.
In Warren Wiebe's singing I heard the Human Touch.

Comment: As an aspiring songwriter/producer, I was lucky enough to have worked with him on a demo for a song I had written. I remember calling Warren and asking him if he would sing a song I wrote for a demo. I was kind of nervous to ask him because he had already been working with David Foster, Celine Dion, Peabo Bryson etc. I was nobody big. So when I asked him he said yes and quoted me is rate. I said fine I will call you back when I have the track ready for you. A minute later he calls me back to say that he was lowering his rate. I don't know why he did that other than maybe he thought I wouldn't hire him becuase I thought the rate too high. That was not the case. So I sent him a rough copy of the song for him to learn. He called me back a few days later to say how much he loved the song and would do it for free. He came to the studio a few days later a layed down the vocal track. All I can say is when I heard his voice on the moniters singing my song, I was just blown away. And working with him was fun too. He was a bit shy at first but after he started to sing, he became alive. Needless to say, I paid him the rate he first quoted me because he was worth it and more. I have trasured that recording till this day. I don't think anybody else could have sung it like him. I only hope that someday we can hear the recordings or outakes or anything else he might have done especially with David Foster. I will always treasure that day I got to work with such a talented singer. We miss ya Warren. Rest in peace and God Bless You.
