Info: Baumer’s story begins late ‘03 in Columbia, SC with guitarist Kenny McWilliams, who was working in his garage-studio on a low-key solo project. McWilliams invited Nate Boykin down to his studio to try out some vocals over his project; the results were favorable and the two soon began collaborating and recording demos. However, what started as mellow acoustic guitars and lounge beats morphed into upbeat, dance-able rock.
