Warwick Embury was born in Chelsea, London. He now
resides full-time in Ireland. His deep passion for being a songwriter
has led him over the last 25 years to work with varied troubadours,
many famous, many not.
In the 70šs he made friends with the brilliant American
songwriter Bobby Whitlock, who was at that time with Eric
Clapton and he co-wrote 'Layla', 'Bell Bottom Blues', 'Let It
Rain' and many more. Warwick co-wrote a song with him which has
been released this year on his new album 'About Time' on Grapevine
For most of the '80s, Warwick managed the legendary
"Donovan" - most of that time being in the USA. He refers
to that period as "most fruitful". In the late '80s and '90s, he
was approached by many recording artists to act as their manager.
He declined, wishing to fulfill his own career.
Primarily a writer, Warwick has spent the last few
years, consolidating his writing and performance skills. His musical
influences being manly Black American, Blues, Soul and Tamla. Several
of his songs appeared on 3 compilations, and in 1996 he formed 'The
Regulators' with the marvelous Irish Guitarist Philip Donnelly.
The Regulators first and only album 'The Spirit
Of Communication' was well received, however after 3 years Warwick
decided to go solo and released his CD 'The Demo Tapes' in July
Both his music and delivery are honest and soulful.
He remains an enigma whose live shows bring out the best in him.
He injects his own enthusiasm and eccentric view of live into both
the lyrical content of the songs and the overall philosophy of his
Warwick's eclectic musical heritage ensures a varied
and stimulating experience!
