The Burney Sisters, comprised of sisters Emma and Bella Burney create music with a maturity and emotional intelligence that belies their age. They write keen and knowing songs while arranging for multiple instruments and structuring unique and resonant harmonies. The result-personal and penetrating music that both connects with and captivates their listener. Their soul nurturing sibling harmonies and tunes are reminiscent of The Avett Brothers, First Aid Kit, Lake Street Dive, The Staves, and Joseph. First Aid Kit, Lake Street Dive, The Staves, and Joseph. While drawing inspiration from various genres, they hold a special affinity for Motown and soulful melodies from any genre or era.

Emma has established herself as not only a vocal powerhouse, but highly skilled with multiple instruments. Her first love was the guitar, but it was followed quickly by bass, fiddle, cello, piano, banjo, and basically anything she can get her hands on. She has recently added more of her own original songs to the set, and continues to be a major voice in arranging all of the songs the girls perform.

Bella, the youngest of the songwriting duo, adds not only her vocal talents, but also rounds out the girls’ harmonic sound and rhythm on bass, as well as piano, guitar, and cajon. Bella has also started writing songs of her own, and adding them to the show as she and her sister breathe life into her creations.

Their journey has taken them to grand stages, intimate event-locations, and festival stages such as Blissfest, Shoe Fest, Shipyard, Moccasin Creek, Columbia’s Roots N Blues, Ozark Amphitheater, and most notably the Cayamo Music Cruise (2023). They’ve shared billing alongside luminaries like Wynonna Judd, Brandi Carlile, Jo Dee Messina, Jeff Tweedy, Willie Nelson, The Avett Brothers, Sheryl Crow, Larkin Poe, Del McCoury, and Sawyer Fredericks from ‘The Voice.’ Beyond the spotlight, the Burney Sisters have cultivated a strong bond with their fanbase through over 200 house concerts across the US and Canada.
