My Town (2018)

Bob's 2018 release, "My Town," is a collection of songs about his home town and his life there. He received a state grant to write songs about his community - a recorded history of the town - and three of the songs on the album come from that project: "Dunbarton," "Four Leaf Clover," and "My Town." Other songs are more personal, but still about his life and his town.

Bob plays guitar, piano, keyboard and harmonica, and sings, and is assisted by Tony Markellis on bass, Matt Donnelly on keyboards, Danny Whelchel on percussion, Don Warren on electric guitar and Joy MacKenzie on vocals, with Joe Gitto (chromatic harmonica), Oona Gradey (fiddle, vocal), James Gascoyne (banjo, guitar, vocal), Marie De Mott Grady (flute), Leah Grady Sayvetz (bodhran), The So What Singers: Lou Della Valle, Joanne Della Valle, Bonnie Warren, Bea Román (vocals), and The Grady Girls.

All the Days of the World (2015)

Bob Warren's 2015 release, "All the Days of the World", spotlights his songwriting and singing in an intimate aural setting. Spare, but satisfying arrangements feature many of his long-time musical compadres, including Tony Markellis on bass, Joy MacKenzie singing harmony, Matt Donnelly on keyboards, Danny Whelchel plays percussion and brother Don Warren adds some of his signature electric guitar.

You Taught Me Something New Today (2014)

Bob Warren & Joy MacKenzie's CD, "You Taught Me Something New Today", puts the spotlight on the voices. In a spare setting of acoustic guitar, bass and simple percussion, the two singers shine; alone and in harmony. The songs cover many years of Bob's writing. There are some old favorites in new arrangements and some great new songs. Tony Markellis ably supports Bob & Joy on bass and percussion. Recorded at Bob's own home studio, this will particularly please those who love music in its most intimate and human guise.

The Poet in Me (2013)

"The Poet in Me" is Bob and his band recorded "live" on March 2nd and 3rd of 2013 at Edie Road Studios in Greenwich, NY. It is Bob's first album that does not add additional musicians or instrumentation. It is a true reflection of the band and the songs during this time.

Two of the songs; "A Whole Lot Of Rain" and "There Is A Place" feature a smaller ensemble, and were recorded at Bob's Studio B in Greenwich, NY.

The band is bassist Tony Markellis, drummer Danny Whelchel, guitarist Don Warren, cellist Monica Roach, keyboardist Matt Donnelly , and singer Joy MacKenzie.

The songs tackle a variety of subjects, which vary as do the musical styles.

Bob Warren (2010)

"Bob Warren", his 2010 album, is a collection of 12 new original songs featuring guitarist Paul Asbell, bassist Tony Markellis, and a host of great players. The musical style ranges from folk to heavy metal, the lyrical content from funny to poignant. The protest song, "Prove Me Wrong", is perhaps the highlight of this very strong album.
