"Since embracing the "raw" and soulful side of his craft, Stephan has been able to really tap into what is his best writing.  With his newest to date, a double LP that doesn't fall flat as a whole, but rather shines throughout.  One LP is all about the West.  The other, about his home state of Michigan.  Each captures the essence of both places.  A history lesson that roots deep into the characters' mind and soul.
"Low Desert Cadence" & "Echoes On The Lakes" are a peek into what talents as a writer, Stephan possesses".
  ~  John Neil.com

"With passion and imagery, Stephan paints a canvas filled with the bleakness and isolation of the desert west and the love for his home in the north.  Able to convey a sense of hope and desperation that the heroine of the story feels, Stephan's lyrics and raw voice puts you beside them, as they navigate through the song".

Sunset Rumble certainly do not disappoint with their latest album ‘Soul Plow’. . . . . " Their style is charismatically melodic, there’s no harsh drama, just an indulgence in the sweet sound of rock combined with ubiquitous soul".

 ~  A&R Factory.com

"Reminiscent of 60s / 70s Rock & Soul music. With a hint of Memphis soul and a tip of the hat to Detroit rock & roll. From harmonica infused rockers to soulful ballad, a great mix of fresh sounding tunes".  ~  CDBaby.com

Stephan  Buehrer

"Growning up on S.S. Johnny, Ruffin, Dewar and Coverdale, I have always had a sense for the soulful side of a performance.  Times change and although I'm still into what I grew up on, my influences have changed too.  Music has evolved and I'm hoping, I have along with it.  Maybe with age, I have matured into a better understanding of what I really want to convey.  Right now, that seems to be a more "roots in the dirt" side of what I listened to in my youth".

Stephan has embraced a sense of vulnerability, that allows him to get more personal.  In the same place, as the listener.  Not singing to, but more of - feeling with.  "It's a challenge to be able to have this affect on their emotions and make them feel like this song, is just for them".  That's what Stephan is wanting for his music and lyrics to do.

Born and raised in Southeast Michigan, it’s no wonder they are into the “soulful” side of Rock & Roll.  In the early days, founders of Sunset Rumble, Stephan and DK Corbin, loved all that was funky and soulful and done with attitude.

From Pickett to the Staple Singers and JB to Al Green. From Otis to Marvin Gaye and MoTown. Throw in a pinch of Jr. Walker and a smidge of The Meters.

They were into all that had funky horns and vocals sung like it came from deep down in the soul.

Even as teens, being introduced to Rock & Roll by what was coming out of Detroit, they leaned toward the soulful, somewhat bluesy side, with bands like Bad Company, The J. Geils Band and Michigan's own Bob Seger, Mitch Ryder, Cub Koda and the like.

let's talk

Become Part Of The "RUMBLE" Fan Base

What a time to be born.  We can still remember as kids growing up near Detroit listening to CKLW and later WRIF, just hanging out with friends, waiting for the next LP of our favorite group, to hit the air waves.  Back then, there were no VIP tickets to concerts on line, no Twitters telling you to go to the "cloud" and get the latest single before it even hits the web for purchase.  Back then, you would wash a few cars and mow a few lawns, then go hang out at the nearest record store, to get that new vinyl or concert ticket.  What a time to be born.

There's nothing like the beginning of a particular song, that can take you back to a specific place and time and conjure up a lifetime of memories.  You know what I'm talking about.  Here's a few that do it for us.

"Let's Do It Again" ~ Staple Singers  /  "What Does It Take" ~ Jr. Walker  /  "Tired Of Being Alone" ~ Al Green

"Rock & Roll" ~ Mitch Ryder  /  "Lovely Day" ~ Bill Withers  /  "Shambala" ~ 3 Dog Night  /  "Dynamite" ~ King Floyd
