Warren & Flick explore the nuanced textures of a two person ensemble. Using both original material and arranged standards from many genres, this ensemble finds new depth in the simplicity of a duo. Jacob Warren plays double bass, while Grant Flick plays violin, tenor guitar and mandolin. Currently based out of Ann Arbor, Michigan, the two met at the 2015 Acoustic Music Seminar (AMS), a program accepting only sixteen young string players from around the world to participate in a week of intense improvisation, composition and performance training. A part of the Savannah Music Festival in Georgia, AMS is led by multi-instrumentalist Mike Marshall with the help of guitarist Julian Lage.
After discovering their shared musical interests, Jacob and Grant began collaborating as a duo as well as in a larger project called Westbound Situation, both of which are comprised of AMS alums. Grant currently attends the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance, where he is a jazz studies major. Jacob graduated in 2019 from the University of Michigan with a Master of Music in Improvisation and a Master of Music in Chamber Music. Jacob also hold a Bachelor of Music in Double Bass Performance from U of M. Jacob and Grant spend much of their time arranging, composing and performing together. With Jacob’s classical foundation and Grant’s experience in bluegrass and jazz, their contrasting backgrounds give this collaboration a unique and compelling musical narrative.
