Biography

Burn was founded in 1998 by Joseph Greene (lead vocals, lead and rhythm guitar) and Joshua Fletcher (drums, percussion, and vocals). Burn played as a duo for a few years before adding Demetrios Karathanasis on keyboards and backup vocals. They have played extensively on the East coast and have two full-length albums, both recorded at Barrick Studio in Glasgow, Ky. Barrick has recorded such well-known acts as The Kentucky Headhunters, George Clinton, Nashville Pussy, and Black Stone Cherry. Burn is an unsigned band but their goal is to acquire a record deal and tour the country. Here's what some of the area's critics had to say about Burn's debut album: "With the combination of powerful straight ahead rock, Spanish, rockabilly, and even acoustic guitar riffs, Burn clearly covers a lot of ground on their self-titled debut record...Burn has proven that young men with many musical interests and influences can combine these in an effective and ear-friendly rotation. Burn begins with a very Nirvana-esque guitar that takes you back in time, if only for a short time, until singer Joe Greene's lyrical persuasion quickly overtakes the song entitled appropriately enough 'Burn.'" Erik Lake of News 4 U Magazine, 2001. Interesting notes: "Just for the Night" single aired on XM Satellite Radio Alternative Station hosted by Billy Zero "Paradox" single aired on EDO International Radio in Athens, Greece. "Alien Love" single aired on WEBN Radio in Cincinnati, Ohio. "Stoned Out" and "Space and Time" single aired on Z103 Radio in Lexington, Ky. "Burn" single aired on WRFL Radio in Lexington, Ky. 8 tracks from Burn's first CD were included in the movie soundtrack of "Becoming Morris," directed by Paul Grundy and produced by A Heavyweight Production Co.

Lyrics

Does Anybody Care

Written By: Joseph Greene - Burn

Verse:
Tied to a car that wouldn’t break
Spinning ‘round the room I couldn’t take
Despite it I stay
Does anybody care
Does anybody care

Chorus:
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Verse:
God isn’t dead he just needs his rest
Be careful where you step or you’ll be blessed
It’s a bit much too much but
Try to choke it down
Go on and try to choke it down
Hey man need a leg to stand
I’ll give you what I can
If you need a hand
And if so you’ll need to know
Take it while you can
Come on and get it while you can

Chorus:
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Bridge:
Dare me or dare me not
The finer things in life should not be bought
We have won wars for who have fought
Who has fought
I think we just forgot

Verse:
It takes all come and ride the ride
It will eat you one and all and you can’t hide
Cover up your eyes
If it takes you by surprise

Chorus:
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Used Up

Written By: Joseph Greene - Burn

Verse:
Going to the city to get away
Riding on the edge is so cliché
I had a ticket and went nowhere
And there’s no way to be prepared

Chorus:
And I’m used up
And I’m used up

Verse:
Guess I should leave before damage is done
Same old story a bad rerun
I really don’t know where I’ll end up
Guess I should leave before I erupt

Bridge:
Timing means everything to me
What I mean is I’m leaving

Verse:
Going to the city with a friend in mind
Riding on the edge leaving life behind
I really don’t know where I’ll end up
But I know I’ve had enough

Chorus:
Repeat

Verse:
Going to the city to get away
Riding on the edge is so cliché

Timing
Timing

Bridge:

Chorus:
Repeat
