Aum was discovered by photographer Jim Marshall when the band performed at Swiss Village in San Francisco in 1968. Marshall brought Aum to Bill Graham's attention and to the "Sounds of the City" auditions at the Fillmore West where the band wowed the audience. The blues-rock group featured Wayne Ceballos, Kenneth Newell, and Larry Martin. The trio lasted through 1970 and released two albums.
