Warm Winter features a wide range of guest performers, including two leading members of the 1970s progressive rock movement (Robert Fripp, Peter Hammill) and several from its 1990s/2000s equivalent (Jim Matheos (of Fates Warning and OSI), Huxflux Nettermalm of Paatos, all current and several previous members of both Nosound and Henry Fool, and Porcupine Tree's Colin Edwin and Steven Wilson (the latter of whom is also Bowness' partner in No-Man). Other contributors to the album include Julianne Regan (All About Eve), Estonian jazz trumpeter Aleksei Saks and cellist Marianne de Chastelaine (Samuel Smiles, Heather Nova).

A different version of the song "Beautiful Songs You Should Know" appears on the 2008 No-Man album Schoolyard Ghosts (this album shares a title with another song on Warm Winter, which is itself closely related to the No-Man track "Mixtaped").
