Listeners appreciated The Burned for its evocative tales, proclaiming the album “fantastic” and “worth every penny.” Television and radio also responded well, with “Man Running" featured on NBC's hit show Chase, "Make Believe" on CW's Gossip Girl, and "Time" on ABC's Make It or Break It. "Hard Lesson" became a most requested song (2012, KINK in Portland, Ore.) and settled in at number 3 on Seattle’s The Mountain.
