Mr. Burke,
Hello from Cambridge. Ohio!! You are one awesome actor! Then I watched your video Pollyanna Ride then Removed I’m in shock you are one HELL of a singer!!
In truth I couldn’t get into the Twlight movie series. I’m just not much of a fan. I do love you as Uncle Miles on Revulution a group of us on GetGlue are calling you Daddy Miles! We believe you are Charlie’s bio-father. We have debated on this since the mid season break. Then March 25th we watched everything alot more closely the body language was going on & that kiss??? My knees went weak!
So we talk each week about are you Uncke or Daddy Miles? We are hoping its the latter,
Drive Angry is my favorite movie with you in it! I’m not a Nick Cage fan as most people are. You made that movie awesome although he did drunk that beer out of your skull (that was funny)
The Closer had a great ending sorry you were the serial killer & Brenda f-Ed you up in that elevator then shot you, I thought Brenda’s nuts instead she was right. That was weird!! You played that part to the perfect time!
Acting x singing x movies x. Is Broadway next?? Perfect acting singing / anything left??
Mr. Burke, you are a great actor singer keep going and as my Grannie would say Keep On The Sunny Side Of Life Find The Gold In The Sun & Love From The Moon !!!! Bright Wishes And Many Brighter Blessings To YOU

I confess I started following you because I use actors for the character inspirations in my books. Billy, you’re in the current one, playing an extremely reluctant hero and the project is giving me fits. But you’re very helpful. :) Love the music, BTW!


Theresa Diffie April 11, 2013 at 3:21 am

I am a super big fan! Love your work both music and acting!


Linda Tomchick December 2, 2012 at 4:59 am

OMG I can’t stop watching your videos Pollyanna Rose and Removed I am irrevocably hooked to the core your voice is like unlike anything I have ever heard and I can’t wait to tell everyone to listen and be amazed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I absolutely love your work in movies and TV especially Revolution one of the best series I have seen in a long time. I am going to kiss the mailman when he brings the Removed CD I purchased one of the best things I have done in a long time. Now I will look forward to driving to and from work everyday…my husband thinks I am obsessed and I don’t care! All the best Billy to you and your family!

Finally, an actor who can sing, has classic Star quality and a down to earth persona! You’ve totally won me over!! I’ve grown with you for many years and wish you continued success!

Hello Billy: I came here to greet you. I have no more news about you. Movies? Music????
Please, msj me…

Billy, I just watched your video for Pollyanna Rose. Wow! I LOVED it… You have a phenomenal voice. I am just so blown away. We do a CD exchange with my husbands cousins every year for the holidays. Yours is at the #1 spot on my request list! (Times are a little tough at the moment, or I’d already have bought it for myself!)
Thank you SO much for sharing your talents with us. Oh, and my daughter (3 1/2) also loved Pollyanna Rose… she danced all around the room to it! And since the only other music she loves to dance to is our house favorite (The Beatles) and the Bubble Guppies, you should feel VERY honored! LOL. xoxo♥

Figured I’d post my congratulations on the Pollyana Rose video here as I guess it will be added shortly. Great job, man. There is so much to love about this video. Start with the ethereal vibe and the warm glow that alone conveys a feeling of love. The way love makes you feel all warm and wonderful. I really liked the personal footage, it really balanced the stylized moments of you and Pollyana. Holy hair Batman! What was up with that hair of yours? Caught a few second glimpse of you laughing with total Heat Miser hair. Make me laugh and I really needed that. I dig the whole vest thing you were sporting, a throw back to your early rocker years perhaps? Whatever the reason, you looked good. Pollyana continues to look like an angel with a devilish side. What else can I say? I’m proud to be a fan!


Jacqueline Christian June 28, 2011 at 7:54 am

Hey BB…I love you in the Twilight movies! My opinion…you were the whole reason I enjoyed them so much.I live on the Hood Canal, and have been on fishing trips up by Forks, so of course I had to watch them. I’ll be honest… the reason I went to your website, is because I work with someone you went to school with in B-ham.He is one of my best friends…LOL..a total brat, but very charming! He had mentioned that he was friends with you in school, which I thought was way cool. So out of curiosity, I decided to check it out! I love the video “Removed”… impressed! I totally enjoyed watching the photo shoot too! I have been a photographer for 20 some odd yrs…so that was a treat! OH …and you have an incredible sense of humor….love that! I wouldn’t generally even bother sending someone like you a message, but sometimes in life…it is good to know people agknowlege the fact that you do something well! I also suffer from the delima of being a perfectionist, and never being satisfied. My worst downfall…I am my own worst critic, so I totally relate! Will be watching for more movies and albums..and if you are at all curious who my friend is?..Well…if you have some extra time one of these days….I will clue you in! ;D


Melony Martinez May 10, 2011 at 4:49 pm

I am in love with you!!! You are an amazing actor and an even better singer! I am going to get a tatoo wit your name on my shoulder!!


chloe March 3, 2011 at 3:05 pm

shay August 2, 2010 at 3:11 am

Hi B,
It’s Shay here. Awhile back you wanted to host a Q&A video for your fans. We supplied and I’m demanding…. When is this going to happen? Don’t get your britches in a twist. I’m just joking with the demanding part. I know you are very busy, but everyone is probably wondering the same thing. I would love a reply.
Thank You For Your Talent,


Audrey July 25, 2010 at 7:41 am

You are funny. I love how you play Charlie. They couldn’t have picked a better person. I love your voice. Good luck with all your future projects.


Schnecksville PA July 13, 2010 at 2:31 am

Great job on Rizzoli and Isles!


Kelle Strike July 8, 2010 at 2:35 am

Great voice, great song, great music…I love it.

You are very inspiring, bb — thank you :) 40+ people still kick some serious butt!!!
Think I’m-a gonna write me some songs, again.Seriously.

Hugs to you and yours,
~ Kelle ~


ilia blandina July 8, 2010 at 12:27 am

Nice music video


Sandra July 7, 2010 at 12:54 pm

I just saw Eclipse last night, and the scene where I felt the most emotion and got choked up is where your character stood to applause Bella at graduation. Although it was very short you conveyed utter pride in that scene. You have added heart and some reality to the film. Congratulations!


ilia blandina July 8, 2010 at 12:26 am

I agree, i loved that scene. Reminded me of my sons graduations. Also the kitchen father/daughter “talk” was priceless!


Keather O'Malley July 1, 2010 at 12:29 pm

Hi there!
Congratulations on all your success! Your song is great, really enjoyed it, very soulful. Think its great someone that I knew and have good memories of, has done so well in the entertainment world.
Wishing much continued success and happiness!


Júlia Demétrio Salgado June 24, 2010 at 1:24 am

Hi Billy, i lestened “removed” and i just loved, that music leaves me calm, it’s a good music to listen, and the video is so good too!
Congratulations! Is a pleasure can talk with you, and Brazil loves you!! I’m brazilian


Kate June 22, 2010 at 9:44 pm


I’ve gotta hand it to ya. I really wasn’t expecting this. Your singing has entirely floored me! I figured that I knew the way you spoke, so I could pretty much guess what you’d sound like musically, but boy, was I wrong! You pulled a “Susan Tedeschi,” so to speak, where I was expecting one thing and received another. Congratulations on the release of your “Removed” cd, and I honestly hope to hear more from you as the years pass by. By that I mean vocally, not just in your acting career.

Oh, and for the record, I’m in love with your e-mails. You sound so down-to-earth, and it’s very refreshing to read something very genuine. I laugh aloud to your cussing and I just wanted to thank you for being so, well, COOL. Congrats once again, Billy!


Angel June 22, 2010 at 12:54 am

Simply Awesome!!!!


Carol June 19, 2010 at 9:35 pm


Music scene is not easy to break into, even harder the film industry!!!
unless you have contacts & money, sure you have done OK out of the TWILIGHT SAGA, due to it’s unexpected success.along with all others involved in it.
Sorry not my cup of tea but, I wish you well & good luck to you.


Sandra July 7, 2010 at 12:56 pm

If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.


Geri June 19, 2010 at 3:37 am

Hi Billy,
THANKS for treating your fans the way you do Billy – In my book you are a VERY SPECIAL GUY!


Ane June 16, 2010 at 10:33 pm

Hi! Billy, my name is wivianee I wanted to ask you, what you think of Brazil?

AJ June 15, 2010 at 11:26 pm

Hey Billy
So when can we order your cd on your site? Love Removed, want more!


Deborah June 11, 2010 at 11:39 pm

Hey, again. I had a comment on your video, The 1st time that I watched it I wondered who the girl was, she’s very pretty and I wondered where you found just the right person to fit in the video. Then I read that you got your wife to play. I’m glad she played she look good in your video!!!!!! Love it !!
More Love,


Emma June 9, 2010 at 2:01 pm

This makes no sense; because I don’t know you but I’m unbelievably proud! It’s strange to think of it, but I really really like it! Makes a change from most commercial stuff and sounded very Bryan Adams at times :D Brilliant work Billy, you’ll have an army of loyal fans in no time


Fatih Said Ünal June 9, 2010 at 12:41 pm

Just saw and listened to your video, sounds good. I was wondering if it was posible to see the lyrics as I’m hard of hearing. Once I know these I always enjoy the music more :-)

Gretchen May 23, 2010 at 4:16 pm

Nice, Billy. You should be proud. I liked the darker (lighting-wise) shots.

And yeah…the cheeky grin at the end was a classic.

Well done. Congrats.



Sarah May 23, 2010 at 1:45 pm

Well done Billy, it’s great, loving the cheeky grin at the end too!!


Anna May 23, 2010 at 1:41 pm

Hi Billy
The song is great, and must say a glass of wine tastes even better when it plays! Video is great as well. Now all I can do is wait patiently for your album…
