We had the good fortune of connecting with Warren Sabori and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Warren, we’d love to hear more about your end-goal, professionally.
I think the end goal is always to have a strong fanbase and to feel like my music has elevated the lives of others. Playlists, to me, have always served as soundtracks to the different stages of my life, and I would love to know that my music soundtracked the lives of others. Additionally, I’d love to make music my main source of income. I want to support my family whilst doing something I love, y’know? It’s every artists dream.
Alright, so let’s move onto what sets you apart from others?
Lately, since I’ve started my new project – The You Paradox – I’d say that what sets my art apart from others is that nobody in San Diego, I feel like is making music that sounds like it belongs in a movie soundtrack. I think I’ve begun to properly develop a sound that feels like it belongs in, like, a 90s/early 2000s rom-com. Part of the challenges to finding a sound to finally settle on was trying different things and acknowledging what did/didn’t work. It’s a bit discouraging when you find a lot that doesn’t work. But it’s all a learning experience. What I want the world to know about this new brand of my music is that it’s a soundtrack. Romanticize your life always. Live life like it’s your favorite movie and treat your music like it’s the soundtrack.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I have to be honest with y’all. I’m an indoor cat- I’m probably the biggest homebody you’ll ever meet. But when you’re in San Diego, you have to hit up the beaches. You have to. I love crown pointe. There’s something about the sand there- it’s softer then the other the beaches. My fiancée and I have made dates just walking there. We got coffee from Better Buzz (great coffee! 10/10) and then walked on the beach at crown point. A couple places you should hit up though whilst you’re here, though: Ho-Dads. Those burgers are just glorious! Not much of an itinerary, I know, but no matter where I am, I’d almost always rather be home with my family. Nothing beats that.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I dedicate everything always to my fiancée and my step-kid. They are the driving forces for everything that I do, always, but if there’s someone that deserves a little credit and recognition in my story, it’s my good friend and collaborator, Roysha Arielle. Not every friend or family member actively supports me, and that’s fine, but it’s not always encouraging, so when you have a friend that not only regularly streams, but collaborates on music with me as well, it inspires you to keep persisting and to keep following that dream, so big shoutout to Roysha
Other: These links are for my newest project. The Innø brand took a different turn during the last two projects and I decided to start fresh with a new sound that’s more inspired by the guitar-central music I mostly listen to. There’s an album dropping soon, with a proper announcement to come.
