He is a highly evolved artist distinguished in music, writing, photography and the electronic arts. His music is favored by many loyal and devoted fans globally and is considered to be one of the finest composers living in the world today. He has recorded, engineered and produced hundreds of hours of his own original music since the 1970s and for over 70 years, Paul’s mission has been to help find peace and heal the mind body and soul.

Born 1938 and classically trained in the piano since age 7. Young PLW studied that instrument formally and continuously from his childhood through his university years at UCLA where he majored in literature. His graduate work brought him to Florence, Italy where he studied Italian Renaissance Art History and taught English.

Later, in 1976, while living in Maui Hawaii, Paul was asked by an independent film producer to discover if whales responPLW playing for Dolphins Oahu, Hawaiid to music. A grand piano was put aboard a 72’ sailboat for the filming. The whales were sited, they dropped over an underwater hydrophone to listen and speakers for the whales to hear. Magically, they came around squealing and swimming around doing large somersaults under the boat. Truly one of the greatest moments in PLW's career.

In 1983, Paul relocated to San Francisco, then to Santa Cruz the following year.  There he set up the business of distributing his music in the United States by direct public sales. 

In 1989 he purchased a 37’ Winnebago. He then met up with his new traveling marketing partner, Arion Jay Goodwin (AJ). They converted the motor home into a mobile recording studio and throughout the 1990s, they traveled across the western United States where PLW was inspired to compose and record many hours of electronic piano and symphonic instrumental music on multiple keyboards.

This was a dream come true where one man could compose, conduct, engineer and play all the instruments of the orchestra ... all in one sitting without any mixing, multi-tracking, sequencing or any gimmicks. The music was recorded just like you would hear an orchestra and to top it off, these performances were recorded "LIVE" from hundreds of sites on their travels, including Grand Canyon, Sedona, Zion, the Grand Tetons, the deserts and coastline of California to the Great Northwest of Oregon and Washington.

With these new fresh digital recordings based in nature, they were then put into individual and packaged collector sets of tapes and CDs where PLW, AJ and street team ambassadors sold tens of thousands of units at prestigious art shows, festivals, trade shows and many fairs. Now with the digital downloads and streaming technologies, to date Paul Lloyd Warner’s music has sold well over 1.5 Million copies.

In 2002, after losing sight in one eye during an operation that removed a benign tumor in his brain, Paul is now dedicating the rest of his life to creating music collections for peace, education and healing, publishing his books of poetry and prose and later working on a series of films from whales and dolphins to stars.

Most recently, Paul partnered with scientists to conduct a study that will identify the effect that different sound patterns of his compositions have for healing.

PLW’s music and writings are Powerful, Evocative, Beautiful and Revolutionary. Through years of study, PLW possesses a prodigious piano technique for the music and art he creates. What is noticeable about Paul Lloyd Warner‘s Waterfall Music style, is the incredible speed of notes...executed with such flawless clarity, one begins to actually see, feel and hear poetry in his music.
