VAN WARMER 02

Singer-Songwriter Randy VanWarmer was a Denver native who departed the state in 1979.  Randy was raised in the Colorado town of Indian Hills.  He was best known for his big hit “Just When I Needed You Most” (Spring, 1979 – #4 on the charts for 20 weeks).  He would chart two additional times with “Whatever You Decide” (#77 in 1980 and “Suzi” (#55 in 1981).

He moved from Colorado at the age of 15 after his father passed away – moving to England with his mother.  In 1984 he composed a number one country song for the Oak Ridge Boys, “I Guess It Never Hurts to Hurt Sometimes”.  He also composed a number 7 country hit for Colorado’s late Michael Johnson, “I Will Whisper Your Name”.

VanWarmer died on January 12th, 2004 losing a battle to cancer while residing in Seattle, Washington.
