Combining elements of crunchy, organic folk reminiscent of Will Oldham, with quirky pop sensibilities. Baum's debut release has a genuine, laid-back feel.

Baum's lyrical strength comes in part from his life-long affinity for writing. He recently released a novel titled North of Sunset. This comes after his first book, Oscar Calibur Gun, also published under the title The Golden Calf.

The featured track on Living Room is "Down the Rabbit Hole."
