Born to the union of Abraham and Ruby Wiebe in San Diego, Warren Wiebe was a child who soon discovered a great love of music.  Warren showed a great interest in performing music while enrolled at San Diego's Crawford High School, a place that turned out an inordinate amount of talented performers, such as Nathan East, Stephen Bishop, Carl Evans Jr, Hollis Gentry, and Kathy Najimy. Warren just loved to sing. He could do a perfect Stevie Wonder, Al Jarreau, James Brown, Paul Rodgers, or Garth Brooks. And all this without a single vocal lesson in his life. He never practiced or studied music. He had the uncanny ability to learn a song perfectly in one pass and then be ready to roll tape and lay it down.

Warren started his musical journey in San Diego doing trio gigs as a bass player with one of his best friends, Brian Price, and culminated his career in Los Angeles by singing with the best of the best, under the guidance of David Foster (taken in by Foster under his own wing.)
