38 years after writing her first major hit (1983’s Laura Branigan’s “Solitaire”), legendary, GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter Diane Warren – who has penned massive hits for the likes of Celine Dion, Cher, Toni Braxton, Beyonce, Whitney Houston, and more – has finally released her debut album.
Titled ‘The Cave Sessions Vol.1,’ the August 27-released set sees Warren take center stage but still get by with some help from her celebrity friends including Dion, Maren Morris, John Legend, Santana, G-Eazy, Ty Dolla $ign, and many others.
The nearly 40-year journey is one Diane is most proud of.
“I am so excited to release this album which is like a microcosm of my career – writing songs in all kinds of genres of music for a wide range of amazing artists, many of whom I am thrilled to be working with for the first time and others with whom I’ve been delighted to work with before. I just love writing songs that reach across all genres…each song is like casting a role in a movie. But in the end, I always leave it up to the artist and how they want to do it,” she said.
