Roem & The Revival
Roem Baur has seen his "star steadily increasing" (The Examiner) as a new emerging artist from the San Francisco music scene. Last March he was handpicked out of 3600+ bands by Counting Crow's frontman Adam Duritz and music blogger turned television producer Ryan Spaulding, to play the “Outlaw Roadshow” during SXSW 2013. His “blistering” performances, a powerful mix of soulful rock and blues were “blowing minds” of all in attendance, according to Duritz.
No overnight success, Roem has played thousands of shows in a career that spans 4 continents. With roots in opera, he studied in school as a lyrical tenor before breaking the mold to become an award-winning singer and songwriter (Elly and MAMA Awards.) His new "boisterous" (Bay Guardian) full band EP "ROEM & The Revival" marks his first studio recording and was recorded with GRAMMY nominated producer/engineer Damien Lewis (Rihanna, Katy Perry, Keane).
Recently selected as the winner of Guitar Center's National Singer Songwriter 2 Competition , Philadelphia native, Campbell moved to San Francisco in 2004 specifically for the newer Rock scene he had heard was developing.
After a few years of trying to balance learning the West Coast Music Scene with his day job, the job was cast aside in favor of full time touring, writing and recording for a living.
Jeff’s onstage experiences have found him sharing the stage with John Mayer, members of Counting Crows, Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead and opening for Grammy-winning band Train.
The Stages of Sleep
The Stages of Sleep is described by most as Indie Gypsy Rock. They have been compared to such bands as Patrick Watson, Beirut, Alt-J, and Gogol Bordello to name a few. Accessible, often danceable, yet intricate and subtly textured, their sound defies expectation and consistently impresses audiences. In recording sessions on both sides of the country, the group created complex multi-instrumental arrangements and brought in an impressive array of session musicians, from The Quartet Rouge of the Green Day musical “American Idiot” to Trumpet/French horn player Kelly Pratt of Beirut. (Early tracks from these sessions were released as the self-titled Stages of Sleep EP in April 2011, while later material is featured on their latest release Carousel.)
