  • About Warren Floyd

    His original songs grace us with a much needed reminder of the humanity and grandness of

    everyday life and have been featured on John McEuens Acoustic Traveller show on XM Satellite

    Radio. He also covers rock and roll, folk - rock and a little country from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and

    90s. His stories, from watching Frankenstein on the late movie with Jimmy Buffett, coloring with

    Dolly Parton and hanging out with Richie Havens, to exchanging letters with Doors singer/lyricist Jim

    Morrison and touring with The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band are as entertaining as the songs they inspired

    and prompted singer/songwriter Mare Lennon to quip Warren is the Forrest Gump of Folk!

  • Warren Floyd Bio

    Warren Floyd discovered America on a Texas farm. By the age of twelve he was playing piano, guitar and saxophone, and singing in the church choir. Extra-curricular activities at North Texas State University included joining in on back stage jams with John Denver and Helen Reddy, and The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band at concerts he co-produced for the school.

    In 1973 he began working with bands in Texas and Louisiana and he moved to Colorado in 1979. In the early 80s he spent a few months each year touring with The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Chick Corea and The Little River Band working on the production crews as stage manager and lighting director.

    In 1992 Warren performed for ten days in Hong Kong at The American Food Fair, sponsored by The U.S. Department of Agriculture.

    From 1984-1986 Warren was co-producer of Cominatcha Live, the local cable television series which featured local and national artists. From 1986-1988 he was the operations manager of The Boulder Folk and Bluegrass Festival which featured local, national and international acts.

    Warren has appeared on concert bills and stages with

    The Marshall Tucker Band The Denver Symphony Steve Goodman Richie Havens Doug Kershaw The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band The Dixie Chicks John McEuen John Denver Arlo Guthrie Michael Martin Murphey The Mavericks Jim Messina Leon Russell Bonnie Raitt The Bellamy Brothers Dave Mason Doc Watson Richie Furay Vince Gill Asleep At The Wheel Levon Helm Eric Burdon Donovan Poco

    In addition to his solo work, Warren performed for over 27 years with Eric Baker, who died in 2004. They released their Tired & Decaffeinated album in 1991. Warren & Eric opened concerts for Dave Mason (Traffic and member of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame), The Beat Farmers, The Mavericks, Jim Messina (Buffalo Springfield / Poco / Loggins & Messina and member of The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame), Eric Burdon (The Animals / War and member of The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame), Richie Havens, John McEuen and Jim Ibbotson (The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Poco and were joined on stage by Richie Furay (Buffalo Springfield / Poco and member of The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame).

    Warren, a former high school graduate (Our Lady of the Homecoming Queen), also plays bass, harmonica, kazoo, accordion, autoharp, washboard, ukulele and various implements of percussion.

    Warren enjoys spending time in his recording studio, hiking, back packing and photography. Outside interests include fund raising projects to increase public awareness of the need to prohibit the senseless abuse brought on by the capture and training of parakeets as birds of prey.
