Singer-songwriter Roem Baur has seen his "star steadily increasing" (The Examiner) as the next emerging artist from the diverse, and culturally rich, San Francisco music scene. Last March he was handpicked out of 3600+ bands by Counting Crow's frontman Adam Duritz and Ryan Spaulding, music blogger turned television producer, to play the "Outlaw Roadshow" during SXSW 2013. His "blistering" performances were "blowing minds" in Austin, TX according to Duritz' Instagram and Facebook pages.
No overnight success, Roem has played thousands of shows and house concerts in a career that spans 4 continents. With roots in opera, he trained as a lyrical tenor before breaking the mold to become an award-winning singer and songwriter (Elly and MAMA Awards.) His new single "Natural Disaster" marks a bold artistic step with his first full band studio recording and was co-written with friend Jeff Spence and #1 hit songwriter Danny Myrick (Jason Aldean, Big & Rich, Tim McGraw). His upcoming EP to be released late Summer 2013 was recorded with GRAMMY nominated producer/engineer Damien Lewis (Rihanna, Katy Perry, Keane) at Laughing Tiger studios in San Rafael, CA.
