Indie/Alt-Rock Band The Delphi Ravens’ New Single ‘Burn At Both Ends’ Is Out February 24
The song was co-written by Stephen Andrew Burgess (aka Papa B.™) and Kira Herdklotz-Yasutake aka Kira H/Y.
The Delphi Ravens are an indie/alternative rock band combining influences from several genres. Delphi Ravens were founded in late 2019 by bassist and ASCAP songwriter Papa B.™ The band comes from the Pacific Northwest with its rich history of breakthrough music. Vocalist Kira delivers her dynamic vocals and co-writes many of the songs.
Kira wrote the lyrics and melody, and Papa B. wrote the music for the song. The lyrics come from Kira’s experience having to work multiple jobs to try to pay her bills. The stress and burnout from working 3 jobs with odd hours is what the song is all about. And even after 3 jobs not always being able to pay all the bills adds even more stress. Many people can relate to having to do this, especially in these times of fast rising inflationary expenses.
Kira Quote: “I couldn’t sleep one night after working 2 jobs from 9 am until 2 am with only a short break. So I sat down and wrote these lyrics all the while knowing I had to get up in a few hours to start all over again. Papa B. and I agreed on a song key and then he wrote the chord progressions and bass line while I finished the melody. Really pleased with how this song came out. Hope people can relate as well as enjoy the song.”
