Craig Baumann

Born in Oconomowoc, WI in 1982. Raised in Dousman/Sullivan, WI. Learned to play guitar and drums when I was 8yrs old. It’s been a good journey thus far with plenty of challenges, in music and life.

My early music career involved getting to know the blues genre. You will hear it in everything I do. My grandfather is a vintage country player. You’ll hear it in everything I do. I love the sweet soul grooves of Stax and Motown etc. You’ll hear it in everything I do.

I believe there are two kinds of music, good and bad. Genres are made to be broken.

Every note is a word, every phrase a sentence, every song a chapter. Let me tell you a story.

I now own and operate a full-service family-owned music store in downtown Waukesha, WI. www.outpostmusicwi.com and manage the non-profit www.jamforjam.org.

Currently doing performances with The People Brothers Band, Craig Baumann and The Story, The Smokin’ Bandits, solo/duo, and the occasional Fat Maw Rooney sighting. Expect a new FMR album in the next year. Yes, really.

cbStory will also be hitting the studio in February 2018.
You’ll find us in WI, IL, MN, IA, ND and sometimes beyond, such as a set of Negril, Jamaica shows in January 2018. See you around.

Thanks for your support!
