LR-60 is trumpet player Skip Warren, who found the fulfillment of a vision when he discovered electronic artist Christian Denis aka Mr. Moods. Through their correspondence they discovered that they shared the same musical goals and tastes.

He toured with blues legend Bobby Blue Bland for a decade from 1981 to 1991. That connection nabbed him countless shows with B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Greg Alman, Albert King, Little Milton, Clarence Carter, Tyrone Davis, Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Wilson Pickett, Junior Walker & The Allstars, John Lee Hooker, Dr. John, Millie Jackson and James Brown just to name a few.

He also enjoyed a stellar opportunity recording with gospel singer Kirk Franklin on the Nu Nation Project album with noted gospel artist Fred Hammond. LR-60 has also written and recorded original compositions for CNN. LR-60 & Mr. Moods can also be heard on the premier internet chill/lounge station
