WARREN THOMAS FENZI
“Settle in the space between, It’s where the flowers like to grow.”
Exploring the complexity of life choices, Warren Thomas Fenzi challenges any clear line between generalities, inner truth and self doubt. Suspended, he peers into a looking glass, exploring the possibility that what we believe to be legitimate and authentic, may not be so.
While inviting his listeners on a journey of introspection, Fenzi fosters an ongoing curiosity and examination of the emotional disunion we often find ourselves in. As a multi-instrumentalist, his explorations in sound and songwriting lay the foundation for what has become his unique style of cinematic, musical storytelling.
Since releasing his debut album, Fenzi has performed on multiple national radio and television programs; toured the US, opening for well known artists such as; Mother Mother, Kyle Craft, and Walker Lukens, and has received both national and international critical acclaim through radio, print and new media.
As an independent, self published artist, Fenzi has grown a loyal following. He has been a part of multiple musical projects, establishing himself as a progressive leader and front man. His long standing position as head of artist relations at a renowned venue has given him the opportunity to sharpen his understanding of the relationship between production and performance within the music industry.
“Garden Street,” his new, upcoming dual album release takes the listener one step farther along a pictorial musical path that explores the duality of life. This project reaches for the rich fabric of diversity, dissonance, harmony and the thin line we all walk between The Upside and The Downside. With each song from the project being released singularly, Fenzi underscores his unique style of storytelling.
"Live in the Atrium,” released in 2020, consists of purely acoustic instruments, recorded and filmed live in an atrium in northeast Minneapolis. The album revels in the beauty of acoustic performance as well as truly captures the magic that is: people, a room, a moment in time, together... making music. No overdubs, no added reverb. Similar to Fenzi's previous works, "Live in the Atrium" is drenched in Warren's love for cinematic story lines. The entire album is accompanied by a video for each song.
Throughout his work, Fenzi has found a home in allowing each song to act more as a question rather than an answer. One thing is certain: Warren’s work maintains a message of honesty, growth and transformation as he continues to evolve his art with an unyielding earnestness that is undeniable.
