Born to the union of Abraham and Ruby Wiebe in San Diego, Warren Wiebe was a child who soon discovered a great love of music. At the age of 14 he formed his first band, Mankind, while enrolled at San Diego's Crawford High School, a place that turned out an inordinate amount of talented performers, such as Nathan East, Carl Evans Jr, Hollis Gentry, and Kathy Najimy. Warren just loved to sing. He could do a perfect Stevie Wonder, Al Jarreau, James Brown, Paul Rodgers, or Garth Brooks. And all this without a single vocal lesson in his life.
