Biography

Warren Kramer, jazz, classical-style & sacred guitar
Warren Kramer makes a roomful of music with just one guitar. His fingerstyle instrumental technique allows him to play melody and accompaniment at the same time, at times sounding like two guitars and a bass. Warren learned jazz styles from Al Swan (himself a student of Earl Klugh), and studied the classical guitar under Andrew Schulman, Joel Yaggi, and Jerry Klickstein. His solo guitar styles include: jazz standards, Brazilian/Latin jazz/sambas, and old favorites in jazz or classical styles. Warren's original pieces blend jazz, classical and folk styles, while his classical guitar style hymns, praise & worship songs are most appropriate for Christian weddings and events.
