Burnett plays guitar, piano, a little harmonica, and sings. He was recently called 'a kindred spirit of Fred Neil' by the London Sunday Times. Probably the best description of Abner Burnett's music came in a review of the CD, Calavera,'Punch up tracks 5 & 9 and you'd think this was a classical album then you come to gentle acoustic songs sprightly blues. Washed out, late night jazz. Rugged soul. A wildly eclectic album then, but one bound together by the quality of Burnett's writing-- which is intelligent without being self consciously clever--his ear for a pleasing melody,and a consistent, low key since of sincerity.'
