About Joey Waronker:
Over his 30+ year career, Joey Waronker has played with some of the most influential artists of our time. Some of the most notable acts include Beck, Paul McCartney, Johnny Cash, REM, The Smashing Pumpkins, Norah Jones, Elliot Smith, and Air.

In addition, Joey is also a member of the band Atoms For Peace, whose full-length album is to be released early 2013 on XL Records. Joey’s bandmates on this project include Thom Yorke, Flea, Nigel Godrich and Mauro Refresco.

Joey Waronker began playing professionally as a teenager on the LA punk scene opening for "cowpunk" bands such as Los Lobos, The Blasters, and X. Waronker was playing in clubs like the King King in Los Angeles and partaking in the blues revival that was occurring in LA through the 80s. Prior to the age of twenty, he played with a diverse group of musicians, including Dave Alvin and legendary New Orleans saxophonist Lee Allen, among many others. Throughout this time he studied with legendary drum teacher, Freddy Gruber. He attended Macalester College in St Paul, MN, where his college band, Walt Mink, was a Rolling Stone buzz band and signed to Caroline Records. He embarked on his first world tour in the early 90's.

In 1993, Joey met Beck in Los Angeles. They began working together almost immediately, resulting in an enduring relationship that has seen numerous world tours and recording on every album since Odelay, including Mutations, Sea Change, Modern Guilt, and The Information.

In 1998 Waronker joined REM. He toured and recorded with them for 5 years and 2 record cycles. Since that time, he has focused on recording, producing, and composing. One of his recent productions was the 2011 album Tamer Animals from Other Lives.
