WV’s Premier Songwriter, Todd belongs in the company of Peter Stampfel, Todd Snider and Paul Thorn with Roger Miller winking from beyond. Look upon his works, ye Mighty, and despair!" Larry Groce, Host of NPR’s Mountain Stage

“Like a Randy Newman with a guitar, he's also been described as a Warren Zevon who can evoke bizarre characters and situations…. hearing Burge live takes the cake. The only other live Mountain Stage albums by a singe artist are by Jesse Winchester and Laura Nyro, so Burge is in good company. “Amos Perrine – No Depression

TODD BURGE

Employing wry humor, dexterous guitar work and drawing on a rich variety of life experiences, Todd Burge has emerged as one of West Virginia's most prolific singer/songwriters. Burge, has played everything from Alternative Rock to Contemporary Folk, performing concerts at festivals and in venues as diverse as CBGB’s, The Country Music Hall of Fame, The Kennedy Center, and of course, literally hundreds of clubs including the obscure, to the world famous Caffe Lena, Club Passim and Music City Roots. He has been a repeat guest on NPR's Mountain Stage and has been called the “West Virginia’s premier songwriter”, by its host, Larry Groce. In 2014, he wrote 13 songs for a musical adaptation of Love’s Labour’s Lost by William Shakespeare. The musical has been produced in theatres in the Mid-Ohio Valley. Burge, who is known by many for his method of writing songs from the perspective of odd characters, humans, bugs and animals (listen to Building Characters produced by Don Dixon) released an album of very personal songs in 2015 entitled Imitation Life. The recording was produced by longtime collaborator and Grammy winner, Tim O’Brien. (To date, they have collaborated on three full length album projects) The album includes his original song, Change (For Clean Water) which features Kathy Mattea on backing vocals. Most recently, Burge has released “Live on Mountain Stage 2006-2015”. The 17 track CD features his many performances from the popular NPR radio show and podcast. In July of 2018 he will begin to release a series of singles recorded at the Butcher Shoppe in Nashville with Tim O'Brien. In August of 2018 he'll return to the studio with Don Dixon. Todd Burge resides in Parkersburg WV with his wife Lisa and their children, Will and Sophia.

“Literate, witty, off-kilter & always highly entertaining...a real revelation. We definitely want him to come again."
Pete Marshall, Prism Coffeehouse, Charlottesville, VA / WTJU Charlottesville

"He's got a great talent as a writer and unique view of the world; he's invented his own art form. His songs just get better and better.”Tim O’Brien (Singer-Songwriter, Grammy winner)

“I'm convinced - Ingenious Todd Burge successfully blends more wit and wisdom per song than anyone else I've enjoyed in years.” Ron Goad - Vice Pres – Songwriter’s Association of Washington DC

"His by-turns smart, serious and funny tunes and his confident stage presence are a master class in the art of the solo singer-songwriter craft." Douglas Imbrogno - The Charleston Gazzette

"Man I have really been digging your Building Characters CD. Sometimes I literally laugh out loud at the some of the lines and stories. Great stuff Todd. The Jesus Night Light song cracks me up, but the whole CD is really original. My thanks and compliments to you." Jason Ringenberg/Jason & The Scorchers/Farmer Jason

“With wit and pathos in equal measure, Todd Burge takes on subjects in his songs that never occur to most folks. Subjects too quirky, too controversial, too obtuse for most writers to get a handle on. His compelling vocal style and unique perspective keep me interested long after the last note rings out.”
Don Dixon – Producer (R.E.M. Joan Baez) Performer, Songwriter
