Voices of Columbia 2023 Performers

The Burney Sisters, comprised of sisters Olivia -17, Emma-15, and recently joined 12-year-old sister Bella, create music with a maturity and emotional intelligence that belies their age. Olivia and Emma 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, Indigo Girls, The Staves, and Joseph.
