About Emily Burgess

Emily Burgess graduated with honours from Humber College’s prestigious music program at twenty-two years old, majoring in guitar.  Direct from the hallways to the roadways, Emily began touring Canada and the U.S with the JUNO nominated 24th Street Wailers. 8 years and hundreds of shows later, she fronting her own band, The Emburys, and playing guitar with many different acts across Canada. Emily has shared the stage and traded riffs with guitar greats Jimmie Vaughan, John Primer, Garrett Mason, Suzie Vinnick, Sue Foley, and Sam Weber, among others.  Burgess wrote two songs and took guitar duties for 2015’s JUNO nominated album “Wicked” by The 24th Street Wailers.

Since 2014, Emily has toured year-round with ‘The Baddest Band in the Land’, The Weber Brothers, bringing her constantly evolving approach and style to the band.

As a guitarist for the Women’s Blues Revue Band since 2014, Emily has had the opportunity to take her place alongside many of Canada’s top musicians at Toronto’s legendary Massey Hall every November.

In November 2017, Burgess released her debut solo album ‘Are We In Love?’, produced by The Weber Brothers. CBC music journalist Bob Mersereau calls the album “Empowering” and “A Big Winner”. John Valenteyn of The Maple Blues Newsletter writes “…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”. 

Joined by the dynamic combination of Dawson McManus and Marcus Browne on bass and drums respectively, Emily Burgess and The Emburys are currently performing in support of the new album.

“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,
