Ask your #MCM with Warren Dean Flandez

This week we are crushing on singer/songwriter Warren Dean Flandez!

Hailing from Vancouver, Warren began his music career studying with Checo Tohomaso. Checo was a  backup singer and keyboardist of Marvin Gaye, Lionel Ritchie and the Commodores, making him more than qualified to teach Warren the method of Motown. Under his tutelage, Warren developed his voice, his craft, and his talent for the stage.

In 2011, Warren released his debut album, Vintage Love, under the management of Mitchell Davis, son of music industry icon, Clive Davis. The album debuted at #2 on the Toronto Star’s Top 10 R&B Albums of 2011. That was the same year that Warren placed 4th in Canada on CBC’s Cover Me Canada.

In 2016, Flandez’s sophomore EP release What The World Needs Now debuted #2 on the iTunes Inspirational Charts Top 100. This year, Warren’s latest album Eternally Grateful received a JUNO Award nomination for best Contemporary Christian / Gospel Album of the Year.

Along with his talent for recorded music, Warren is a force to be reckoned with on stage. His remarkable performances have earned him opening spots for notable powerhouses like Joss Stone, and the late James Brown.

Warren’s voice is full of passion and his love of music is undeniable. Check out his single “Joy” here and you’ll see what I mean:

With that much passion for music, we wondered about the passion in his heart. We were not disapointed. Read about Warren’s take on romance here!

What is your definition of romance?

Romance is unexpected, spontaneous acts of amazingness that show someone how much you love them.


What’s the best date you’ve ever been on?

The best dates are the simplest ones. On a whim, I once asked a girl I liked to dinner and a movie after a band rehearsal. The movie ended up being lame and the food was mediocre at best, but the hours of conversation and getting to know each other that night is what made it amazing. It was spontaneous and it was simple, and it must have worked because she’s now my wife.


What is the best piece of romance advice you have ever received?

The K.I.S.S. Principle.  Keep it simple, stupid! Trying too hard never works out.


What’s the strangest thing you have ever done to get a love interest’s attention?

I’m usually not one to play games, but I once waited a week to reply to an email from someone I was interested in -my version of playing hard to get. It was silly at the time, but I told myself that your average person would either follow-up or forget about it.  She ending up pining over it thinking something was wrong. Needless to say, it worked.


If there was one piece of advice you could give to other men/women out there, what would it be?
Be yourself…and if that’s not good enough, then they’re not good enough for you!
