If it’s been discovered by man, West Virginian Todd Burge has written about it. Born to ponder and observe life, each of his songs tells a story. Whether drawn from personal experience or a tale of poetically woven fiction, you’ll live every second of it through his songs. Heard on Mountain Stage Radio, The Kennedy Center and Music City Roots.
“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 single artist are by Jesse Winchester and Laura Nyro, so Burge is in good company. “

Don Dixon is a record producer, songwriter, musician, bass guitarist, and very occasional actor. Dixon is considered to be one of the key producers of what is called the jangle pop movement of the early 1980s producing acts including REM, James McMurtry and many others. His songs have been recorded by Joe Cocker and others.
Jess Baldwin's voice has been described as “world class,” “effortless,” and “pure beauty.” After a period of exploring many different styles as a singer, she found her home in a blend of indie soul, pop, and jazz once she began writing later in her career. She appeared on American Public Television’s Songs at the Center in 2018, NPR’s Mountain Stage with The Fields of Gettysburg in 2013, was a quarterfinalist in the 2015 and 2017 American Traditions Competitions, and won Best Cover Song in the 2015 and 2017 Ohio Music Awards. Outside of performing, Jess wears many hats including voice teacher, vocal coach, voice pedagogue, writer, conductor, and music director. Learn more at jessbaldwin.com
