Sunset Junkies

Sunset Junkies

 Lima, Ohio, USA

4 individuals who love rock and roll--that's who we are. Our music reflects our influences, so while it's always rock, you'll get some tasty different flavors sprinkled throughout our songs. Our goal--to make some killer music that'll move you. Our sound--unique.


For ten years and counting now, Sunset Junkies have been writing and rocking out with their own form of rock and roll.  While we're known to perform a few old familiar favorites done our way, we've always focused on writing and performing original music.  Our sound has been described as a mashup of Kings of Leon meets Zeppelin, with a dash of Sublime.

We roll with two guitars,  bass, drums, and no drama.  Members are Craig Bauman (lead vox/rhythm guitar), Joe Swora (lead guitar/backing vox), Jeremy Patterson (bass/backing vox), and Mike Rogers (drums).

We've got four releases to date--our self-titled debut album in 2008, Therapy in 2011, the Fantasy World EP in 2013, and Dragon Tooth in 2016.  Our fans and listeners continue to enjoy the evolution of our music, and we've got lots more still to come!
