“It’s the group sound that’s important, even when you’re playing a solo.” – Oscar Peterson
Failed marriages or relations, financial instability, disoriented family, low academic profile, and whatnot. That’s quite a lot of problems that can occur in society; do we even have a haven to kill our stress for a while? There might be many, but let us not underrate the impact rock bands have imposed on communities in all aspects. From boosting the economic growth of a particular region to adding more culture to society, the benefits of rock bands top it all when a community feels less burdened and at peace by attending an event hosted by some rock band.
Ever since the evolution of rock bands dating back to the 1950s, youth has felt moved by their presence. Rock bands like Delphi Ravens have proven bliss for many, as their performances create a moment of relief among the audience. Many studies have proven that the performances of rock bands have a therapeutic effect on the souls of the general populace. The process used in certain performances makes one realize that sufferings are evident in every person’s life and they are not alone in a certain situation. Apart from this, many have felt the release of substantial aggression through such performances.
Steve, founder, co-songwriter, bassist, and producer, professionally known as Papa B™, came up with an amazing idea to create a band in 2019, “Delphi Ravens.” It is an American alternative/indie rock band based out of southern Oregon, U.S. The band hails from the Pacific Northwest with a rich history of breakthrough music. Their supremacy in blending alt-rock with other musical styles makes their music exceptional. Ravens perform their original music with a few covers depending on concert length. The band’s musical work has been compared to many artists, including Deftones, Evanescence, Fleetwood Mac, and Foo Fighters. Due to this, they gained fame in a few years and won six songwriting awards in 2022-23 for 4 of the band’s original tracks.
The RAVENS were recognized as Artist of the Month by MTV Rocks. They have composed fifteen new songs from 2021-2023, and all are a part of their live performances. Two of the first three releases made the Top 20 on the Top 100 Alternative Music Chart at Hypeddit. Their song “Hardest Goodbye” went all the way to #2 on the Top 100 Alternative Chart. It was also used in the film series Nate & Laura & How They Met.
The band also ranks as the #1 Alternative Rock band in the Pacific Northwest and Top 30 in the USA by ReverbNation. Their recorded tracks have gained thousands of followers and more than one hundred thousand streams on Spotify alone, helping them to gain even more exposure. The band had their music played on more than 100+ radio shows in 2022, mostly in the U.S. and U.K., including KIIS FM and KLOS FM in Los Angeles, both iHeart stations, and by 2023, Delphi Ravens’ music was featured on over 3,600 radio stations.
