Warren Hill (born on April 15, 1966 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada)[1] is a Canadian smooth jazz and adult contemporary musician. A graduate of Berklee College in Boston, Massachusetts, Hill performed at his own graduation day in 1988, where he caught the attention of record producer Russ Titelman, who helped him sign a record deal with RCA Records in 1991, and Hill released his debut album Kiss Under the Moon that year. He also backed Chaka Khan and Natalie Cole in the early 1990s.

Throughout the 1990s and into the 2000s (decade), Hill continued to release albums: Devotion came out in 1993 and Truth in 1994. By 1997, he had switched to Discovery Records, where he released 1997's Shelter and 1998's Life Thru Rose Colored Glasses. Love Life followed in 2000 on the Narada label, followed by Love Songs and A Warren Hill Christmas in 2002, PopJazz in 2005. In 2008, he signed to Koch Records, issuing La Dolce Vita in June of that year.[2]
