Saxophonist * Recording Artist * Touring Musician
The legendary Warren Hill is an entrepreneur and the creator of Warren Hill's Smooth Jazz Cruise in 2004 – the first of it's kind. Paving the way for the music cruise industry. After selling his cruise business in 2007, he began branding his own hotel destination events with Jammin' in Jamaica in 2009, Warren Hill's Saxophone Summit in 2011 in Los Angeles, and most recently; the sold-out Warren Hill's Cancun Jazz Festival, which is now in its fifth year. Besides being known as one of the world's premier travel companies, Hill's company Music Getaways is known for their "hospitality from the heart" mentality, which stems from the humble man himself, Warren Hill.
If all of that isn't enough, Warren Hill is a recording artist as well. With a prominent and impressive career thus far, including thirteen CD's, touring with his dynamic live show to over 25 countries and selling well over a million records worldwide, whilst garnering multiple awards along the way. Hill also broke barriers with his solo CD's and collaborations topping the almost unheard of multi-genre charts: Pop, Adult Contemporary and Smooth Jazz. Hill was born and raised in Toronto, Canada, a graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston.
He began his career in 1991 when his debut RCA album shot to the top of the contemporary jazz charts and landed him the opening spot on Natalie Cole's "Unforgettable" 40 city US tour. Since then, he's had numerous number 1 records, singles, awards and has been touring the world for 28 years. Warren along with Tamara Van Cleef-Hill (his wife of 24 years), and their daughter Olivia Rox (Season 15 American Idol Finalist) are not just any family; they are a dynamic power family.
You can usually find this uber-talented and innovative team running festivals, building a musical instrument company (that also has a charitable spin on it), recording music, touring the world and running Songbird Records (a Malibu-based record label that they founded together). Next in the works for Warren Hill includes a new CD, a line of signature saxophones and instruments, producing music, saxophone summits, and a new CD dropping soon from his daughter, pop artist Olivia Rox.
