This A Cappella trio explores repertoire that is diverse while being complementary: performing works by Hildegard of Bingen and other early masters; traditional songs and arrangements from around the world; and contemporary compositions. Their distinctive sounds is driven by individual voices that blend to create beautiful harmonies, and choices of repertoire reflects the style of music they most enjoy performing. The ladies of Voice, Victoria Couper, Clemmie Franks, and Emily Burn, look for music that is a bit unusual, and songs they can make their own.

On recording and live in performance, Voice regularly collaborates across all art-forms. They have appeared at a diverse mix of venues from the prestigious Royal Festival Hall to the National Portrait Gallery, and have also taken part in festivals in London. Individually, the members of Voice have been heard in a wide range of unusual collaborations including with the BBC Concert Orchestra, Bobby McFerrin, and installation artist Martin Creed. Voice was featured at the 2012 Cultural Olympiad in London, followed by performances in Berlin and throughout the United Kingdom in preparation for their US debut tour in 2013. In preparation to their debut US tour, Voice received funding from Arts Council England to perform at APAP NYC.

More recently, Voice toured the UK with a project called Megaphones for the Unheard. The project explored the voice of women through music and poetry and was a collaboration with poet, Jamsine Ann Cooray, and four British composers commissioned by Voice to create a suite of songs inspired by the theme. They also worked with early music instrumental ensemble, Dufay Collective, performing 'A Distant Mirror: Machaut, Mannerism and the Medieval Mind' at Dartington International Summer School 2013.
