Sunset Junkies were formed in 2006 by members Craig Bauman, Keith Mason, and Jeremy Patterson. Their self-titled debut was released on May 30, 2008, and is available in hard-copy or online through sites such as iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby. In 2009, lead guitarist Joe Swora joined the band and has been a great addition. Sunset Junkies completed their second album titled “Therapy” which was released in May of 2011. All members have prior professional experience with other established groups, and are dedicated musicians who are committed to making great music. Their original new music has a rock and roll style that you can find yourself singing and grooving along to. Their influences include classic rock bands from the Seventies and Eighties, as well as new rock and alternative rock bands from the Nineties and present day. The total music experience includes stylish accompaniment accented by great lyrics and baritone vocals.
