POM 11/21 No. 2 JimBaumerMe plus new Plague Dad

Based in Biddeford, ME, JimBaumerMe operates as the performance unit of singer/songwriter, Jim Baumer.

Baumer’s music originates from a space occupied by tragedy. In January 2017, Baumer’s only son—an award-winning poet and well-known environmental activist—was killed on a cross-country walk. A year later, Baumer picked up the acoustic guitar he’d had for 20 years and started playing and writing songs. He’s written more than 30 over the last 2 ½ years, and began posting music on platforms like Bandcamp and Soundcloud

His music is one part stripped-down acoustic, but Baumer is first and foremost a rocker and over the course of 2021, has developed a lively electric performance set that finds him operating as a one-man-band—playing electric guitar and utilizing a drum machine/stomp box as his percussionist. His originals speak from loss and sadness, but also offer newfound hope found in music.
