"They play with a heart-on-their-sleeves earnestness in a similar manner to North Carolina folk-rockers, The Avett Brothers."
- Riverfront Times

"For the Burney Sisters, age ain't nothin' but a number. Sisters Olivia and Emma Burney are just 13 and 10 years old, respectively, but they've got talent that'll blow you away..........Their vocals are powerful, their melodies are pitch-perfect -- and, yes, their family harmonies are on point."
- The Boot

Audiences are captivated by this dynamic duo’s jazz and Americana vocal styles harmonized beautifully with their guitar and ukulele riffs. The Burney Sisters are fueled by that feedback, continually filling their music meeting notebooks with more achievable dreams to conquer.”

- Her Magazine

"The voices. The harmony. The raw talent. Those are the first things you notice about this young, dynamic sister duo called The Burney Sisters from the college town of Columbia, Missouri. The fact that this indie folk/pop act is made up of a 10- and 13-year-old is really an afterthought, as this much melodic charm and soul-nurturing sibling harmonies coming from singer-songwriters at any age would set most music lovers’ ears on high alert. The Burney Sisters (Emma and Olivia) will amaze you with the maturity of their songs, all while crushing you with skills! The kids are alright!" 

- Big Hassle

The Burney Sisters aren't even old enough to drive their tour van, but they have the talent and wisdom of artists three times their age....

Olivia, Emma, and Bella are a dynamic sister trio with an indie folk/pop sound.


The sisters started singing around the house when they were barely able to walk. With some vocal coaching from Mom, they began harmonizing well before they picked up instruments.

Olivia found her first love with the ukulele after finding one at a garage sale for a dollar. She's since evolved to play guitar as a primary stage instrument, as well as bass. She wrote her first song at 11 years of age and nearly  4 years later, she's filled multiple books with over 100 songs of original Burney Sisters' lyrics.

Emma, who plays fiddle, cello, bass, piano, and guitar has followed suit in her writing endeavors with her first original work debuting in 2020. Her single debut will be released in 2021.

Bella, the youngest and newest member, bassist, and 3rd part vocal harmony, rounds out the trio in a magnificent way.  She's excited to add her creativity to the mix and to travel with her sisters.

The sisters have written and arranged 4 EPs between 2017 and 2020, and most recently released a full album in Spring 2021 called 'Then We'll Talk', a body of work that continues to show their expansion of lyrical growth and creativity.

Their soul nurturing sibling harmonies and tunes are reminiscent of The Avett Brothers, First Aid Kit, Indigo Girls, The Staves, and The Wild Reeds, and their music can be found on Itunes, Spotify, Google Play and Amazon.
