About Emily Burgess

“Emily Burgess is an engaging guitarist and vocalist. Her obvious youth belies the expertise and passion that charge her writing, singing, and playing. Emily knows how to put the “art” in “artist” and hearing her is a joy you won’t want to miss”

-Barbara Barnes Sims (Sun Records Promotion and Publicity 1957-1960)

Emily Burgess is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter based in Peterborough, Ontario. She is currently working on her 3rd studio album, slated for release in January 2024. As a freelance guitarist, Emily has worked for a wide variety of artists and groups, including The Weber Brothers, The Women’s Blues Revue Band, The 24th Street Wailers, Rita Chiarelli, and Sue Foley. Fronting her own trio (with Marcus Browne on drums and Dawson McManus on bass), she won the Best New Artist Maple Blues Award in 2018. As a member of The 24th Street Wailers, she and her band mates were nominated for a JUNO award for their 2014 album ‘Wicked’.

In November 2017, Burgess released her debut solo album ‘Are We In Love?’, produced by The Weber Brothers. CBC music journalist Bob Mersereau called the album “Empowering” and “A Big Winner”. John Valenteyn of The Maple Blues Newsletter wrote “…she has a knack for writing attractive tunes that feature her biting lead guitar…a combination not often heard”. He adds that the album is “Gorgeously produced”. 

“Emily Burgess – Never-Ending Fling”


She’s always shown excellent skills as a player, and now unveils a whole bunch of talents, as a vocalist, songwriter and a multi-genre performer.  This one’s a big winner. – Bob Mersereau,
