At the age of fifteen, Monte and two friends formed the country group Whoa Trigger! In Austin . . They quickly made a name for themselves in the local scene. In 1983 the trio received an award as "Best New Band".
Whoa trigger! broke up in 1986 and Warden founded the Wagoneers group with musician friends . Two albums were recorded on the A&M label, of which the first - Stout And High - was particularly convincing in terms of quality. With his exceptionally good voice and songwriting skills, he was the undisputed front man of the group.
The Wagoneers disbanded in 1989. Warden initially retired due to personal problems - his first son was born with a severe disability - from the active music business and worked exclusively as a songwriter.
In 1993 his first solo album was released on a small independent label: Monte Warden . Former Wagoneers guitarist Brent Wilson participated in the recordings. With his following albums - 1995 Here I Am - and 1999 - A Stranger To Me Now - Warden turned more towards pop music.
