The Burney Sisters

The Burney Sisters

Olivia and Emma Burney are a dynamic sister duo with an indie folk/pop sound. They started singing around the house when they were barely able to walk, and with some vocal coaching from Mom, they began harmonizing well before they picked up instruments. Olivia found her first love in the ukulele after finding one at a garage sale for a dollar. After a few online tutorials, she was well on her way to being the performer and (now) teacher she is today. Currently, Olivia writes the bulk of the tunes the Burney Sisters perform, including their single “Constellations” and the popular “Plastic,” which appeared on their debut 2017 EP. Not to be outdone by her older sister, Emma picked up a guitar at the age of 9, and began learning songs on her own. Now, she helps Olivia with all of the arrangements and harmonies and has since expanded her instrumental arsenal to include bass, banjo, keys and a recent revival of her love for the fiddle and cello. Their soul-nurturing sibling harmonies and tunes are reminiscent of the Avett Brothers, Cowboy Junkies, First Aid Kit, Indigo Girls, The Staves and The Wild Reeds, and their music can be found on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and Amazon, including their most recent EP, ‘Where We Stand ‘ produced by St. Louis label Gaslight.

You can find The Burney Sisters and all of their upcoming events on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter. The Burney Sisters were recently featured on the cover of the Riverfront Times, and have opened for national acts such as Lake Street Dive, The Avett Brothers, Wynonna Judd, and Lone Star to name a few. The Sisters performed in 2018 at the well renowned festival Roots N Blues N BBQ in Columbia, MO and will be embarking on their Westward Tour In March 2019.

The January Lanterns

The January Lanterns

Andrew and Kristen Camp are The January Lanterns. They became The January Lanterns in October 2017 but they have been singing together for 14 years – since they were 15 years old (High School Sweethearts)!

Andrew and Kristen became involved with Voices of Columbia because, “We know and love Suzanne Guerrant, a CASA advocate, and love the mission of this organization. We want to raise as much money as possible to help children in need of love, support, and care.”

The January Lanterns will be performing “I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You” by Elvis Presley and “You Climbed Down” by The January Lanterns. “You Climbed Down” is about an advocate/loved one/friend who climbs down to someone’s lowest place to show them that they are not alone, they are understood, and that they are unconditionally loved through their pain.  We felt that this song fit with the message of the CASA fundraiser and could bring hope to children in need.”

The Naturelles

They are the winners of the 2017 Midwest Regional Quarterfinals for the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella, and they had the honor of competing at the Midwest Regionals in Indiana against 10 other top a cappella teams around the Midwest. This particular group of women has been together since the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year, and they are excited to participate in Voices of Columbia because, “A member of our group suggested we sing at this event, and we love singing especially for a great cause.”

We had an amazing night listening to eight local musicians raise funds for Heart of Missouri CASA. The winning group, The Burney Sisters, raised $1,545! The January Lanterns brought in $1,391, and The Naturelles raised $1,250. We’d like to thank everyone who supported our 1st annual Voices of Columbia, and helped us raise over $33,000 for children in foster care. Stay tuned for the date for our 2nd annual Voices of Columbia to take place in April 2020!
