Bio

Bob Warren and Joy Mackenzie share a love for singing. Bob is from the mountains of New York; Joy, from the mountains of Northern California. The strength of their musical partnership rises from the diversity of their individual experience, and grows in the union of their voices.

Bob’s music reflects a poetic artistry that is both articulate and evocative.  With his roots in the folk troubadour tradition, Bob’s writing is surprisingly diverse.  From musicals to rock and everything in between, Bob’s music shares his humor, wit, and heart. The songs address a wide range of topics: one, a portrait of The Battenkill (the river that flows through his town), another, an adrenaline rush of a song about his former noisy neighbors, yet another written for the AARP crowd. Social commentary about the peace movement, born again philosophy, and the ongoing debate following the shooting in Newtown, CT also play a role in Bob’s writing. Then, there are the catchy, soulful tunes that just feel good like a summer’s day at the beach!

Music is a way of life for Joy MacKenzie.  She sings whenever anyone will let her. A mountain girl from a small town, she keeps it real and believes that music is close to the heart of what makes us human.

Bob Warren and Joy Mackenzie perform as a duo and as part of the larger, Bob Warren Band. Their singing has placed them in front of appreciative audiences on various stages including live radio, theaters, clubs, and house concerts.
