Satori Bob has toured throughout the East Coast, Colorado, and Wisconsin, and is now based in Eugene.

Their first CD, Strangely Familiar, brings together influences ranging from John Prine to Tom Waits.
John Baumann has been performing for over 20 years, fronting bands, duos, trios, and traveling widely as a solo singer/songwriter. John writes and performs original compositions, and draws from a collection of eclectic cover material, including great writers and performers like Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, John Prine, and Jerry Garcia. John's original music ranges from slow, intimate ballads to gypsy-inflected fast waltzes to upbeat country/folk melodies.
Baumann formed Satori Bob in the wilds of northern New York state and has shepherded its evolution through the years. John and Satori Bob are currently plotting to achieve cult-like status in the Pacific Northwest.
