Originally from Auckland New Zealand Warren’s first inspiration to become a musician came from his parents. His mother was an ardent music lover and his father a professional drummer. Like many drummers, he started playing with pots and pans at a very young age before graduating to a full drum set given to him by his father at the age of 10.
Whilst in high school, Warren was considered an outstanding performer. He joined the school jazz band and went on to win the "Best Drummer" award at the Queensland Festival Of Music several times. His music studies were then complete when he graduated from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music where he majored in Jazz Studies.
Warren then moved to Sydney and became a highly sought after session musician and drum tutor. In a short space of time he was regularly called upon to play jingles for radio and television. His touring, recording and live performance credits include: Kylie Minogue, Will i Am, Men At Work, Jimmy Barnes, Delta Goodrem, Guy Sebastian, John Farnham, Joel Madden (Good Charlotte), Go West, Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet), Martha Davis, Paul Young, Doug Fieger (The Knack), Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Ronan Keating, Paul Gray (Wa Wa Nee), Samantha Fox, Richard Clapton, Ricki-Lee, Ricky Martin, Shannon Noll, Seal, Tina Arena, Lee Kernaghan, Little River Band, Jon Stevens, Glen Shorrock, Vince Jones, Kate Ceberano, James Morrison, Human Nature, Diesel, Damien Leith, Australian Idol (Final 10), E.O.N, Carl Dewhurst Quartet, Grace Knight, Angry Anderson, Ross Wilson, Joe Camilleri, Daryl Braithwaite, Keith Urban, Lionel Richie, .........among others.
Being able to inspire and encourage other talented drummers, in the same way that he was inspired at a young age is his passion. To give back what he has learnt as a drummer is what it's all about. He can be seen giving Drum Clinics / Masterclasses for Yamaha Drums, & Paiste cymbals.
Warren is an immensely talented artist. He can play different genres of music with equal adroitness. Well versed in Rock, R&B, Funk, Soul, Latin, and Jazz, Warren Trout continues to astound with the gifted and individual style he brings to every performance through his dexterity and stage presence.
He is currently the drummer for the house band on Channel 9’s hit TV show “The Voice” Australia.
