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 is a repeat guest on NPR’s Mountain Stage and has been called the “dean of WV songwriters, the best we have”, by its host, Larry Groce.
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)

“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

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
