Luna State presents New Music for your Morning: "Burgers and Fries"

Dear Luna Friends,

We're thrilled to bring you "Burgers and Fries," with music/lyrics/keyboard by Ben Morss, performed by Varín Ayala. This song is inspired by an interview with a West Orange diner cook who knows that what matters isn't the food, it's the way food brings people together.

We began SONGS OF UNSUNG HEROES prior to the current pandemic, to celebrate the people who inspire and uplift our communities. We dedicate this song to all the restaurant workers who are finding creative ways to care for their communities during COVID-19.

Do you know someone whose story should be sung? Email us and let us know! (And if you're a composer or lyricist or singer who is interested in joining us as a creator on this project, please reach out too!)


This is the first of several programs we will be sharing in coming weeks to bring our communities together, inspire creativity and connection, and offer hope at this time.

SONGS FOR UNSUNG HEROES is supported in part by Stages Online, a partnership with New Jersey Theatre Alliance to bring theatre content into homes during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To suggest a song idea, please email Luna's Artistic Director at

Warmest wishes from our Luna Family to yours,
Ari, Annika, Liz, Holly, Ann, Dawn, Jeff and Danielle
