Clint Warren is a South-African-born and American-raised Reggae Rock multi-instrumentalist whose heady life lessons over 30 years and 3 continents have shaped a unique blend of Reggae music not often heard in the genre (according to Grammy-U Mentor Oliver Sean). He has been described by music publications (Lacaverna, RatingsGameMusic, ReggaeTasteMaker) as one of the most versatile singers in Reggae music with a low and alluring voice reminiscent of Rag’n’Bone Man meeting David Bowie.

 

Clint draws listeners in with his soothing yet unassuming guitar riffs. The laid-back vibe he creates with his music is perfect for a day at the beach or pool, an outing on a boat, or just a lazy day at home with your dog. His low, smoky baritone vocal timbre has been compared to a mixture of Trevor Hall, Caleb Followill (Kings of Leon), and Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys).

“I decided to become a singer/songwriter after performing music since I was a kid. I started out as one of those child stars kind of like Sarah Lynn in the animated adult sitcom “BoJack Horseman.” Born and raised in South Africa, I starred in a few TV shows growing up. One of them was focused on music and performing called, “Zap Mag.” That’s where my fellow Saffer musicians Dave Matthews, Shaun Welgemoed, Watkin Tudor Jones Jr., and Yolandi Visser also got their start. I also grew up listening to Tiken Jah Fakoly, Lucky Dube, Ras Dumisani, and Colbert Mukwevho in South Africa, so those guys have an influence on my music too. In high school, I moved to Florida and got into ska-punk bands like Sublime and Ballyhoo. After serving in the Marines, I moved back to Florida and got into the island and Caribbean-vibe kind of styles. Now, living in the Pacific Northwest, I try to write music that’s not so mainstream that it blends into the rest of the boring music out there.” – Clint Warren
