OWEN DAVIS
For more than 40 years, Owen Davis has been writing songs that could be described as folk, and yet they are so much more. Davis combines the best of rock and ska with undertones of country. His diverse style mirrors his diverse life experiences. The native West Virginian has been a geologist, Peace Corps fisheries volunteer, glass factory worker and a public-school science teacher.

Davis has played in numerous original bands most notably the Free Hummus All Stars as well as Gene Pool, who shared the stage with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Swimming Pool Cues.


 


Davis waxes full of clever observations and unpredictable rhymes sounding like R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe backed by sitars and bouzoukis. — Charleston Gazette

TODD BURGE


A native of West Virginia's Wood County region, Burge spent the '80s and '90s earning his place as one of the most important and enduring figures in the state's music scene, fronting everything from the alt-rock band 63 Eyes to the outlaw-country cover project Triple Shot. Since the early 2000s, Burge has concentrated on his singular brand of folk-pop storytelling. 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.


 


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)
