Calm, Clear, Velvety, Seductive Voice
I am an experienced Pro British Female Voice Over Artist, Storyteller and One Voice Awards Nominee, recording in a neutral English accent with a natural warmth for Narration, Commercials, Marketing Videos, Explainers, Web Films, Apps, Voice Mail and Children’s Audiobooks from my Professional Studio in Hereford – where the river runs and my voice flows.
My voice is described in essence as eloquent, empathetic, warm, calm and soothing, relaxing, inviting and reassuring. I’m frequently asked for my calming warmer tones to voice well-being relaxation therapy courses and similar projects. It’s a relaxing experience! For E-Learning Modules and Medical Narration I eloquently voice with a pleasant informative and authoritative style.
Having written and recorded my own original song, I can sing a jingle or provide a spoken word element for your own songs…I don’t just say I can do whatever you need, I truly mean it.
I have created a calming environment in my professional studio so I love being there either for VO or for the mental health volunteer support work that I am involved with. It is always a creative place whether I’m voicing a children’s book, reading a corporate script in the vocal booth or singing my heart out as music really activates my mood.
I believe that listening in VO is as important as speech itself, listening to you – the client, listening to direction, to my voice during recording sessions and listening to colleagues and coaches. It’s this attention, patience and understanding that allows me to actually hear what you need and capture it in a single session. Whatever your project, I will bring your words to life with my voice, delivering the impact you need to communicate to your audience. Whatever your objective, I will create that connection and draw them in.
So, Why Use A Voice Over Artist?
Nothing can replace the human voice for it’s naturalness, adaptability and real emotion. A silent film presentation doesn’t fully impact and a simple text E-learning module really needs a voice to assist the online learning experience. It’s undeniable that nothing informs, sells or illustrates better than a voice over providing a richness that can’t be captured, even with the flashiest graphics and wittiest copy. Whether it’s your brand, product or service – a human voice offers essential communication to your listener that is embedded deep within us as human beings.
As your media projects take shape with your graphics, script content and music effects then enlisting the power of a voice will drive home your campaign to stand out from the crowd and ultimately benefit your business.
The Early and Later Years…….before VO
Early on, two principal interests for me were living the life of a crazy horse girl in the competitive world of showjumping and Speech & Drama around my home city of Birmingham and The Midlands. I eventually pulled up the ponies and forged ahead with my LAMDA training in speech, drama, poetry and the spoken word gaining various bronze and silver medals for performance and receiving The Bolton King Award at Birmingham’s Old Rep Theatre and The Acting Award at Northfield Festival Of Music and Speech. Following on from this I immersed myself in Theatre Workshops with plenty of improv, mask performance (literally the only time I haven’t talked!!), singing and theatre performance narration, all of which has illuminated my voice over work.
Working in the Corporate world at McCanns Advertising and PR and Marketing for PricewaterhouseCoopers and law firm Wragge & Co (now Gowling WLG) were hugely enlightening and the time spent in business helped me discover my love of voiceover and has made me especially good at voicing for corporates because I’ve already lived it. When I take a break from talking to myself I’m normally at business networking events and expo’s, meeting new contacts, listening to their stories and gaining an insight into their work. As part of my continued professional development l regularly attend Voice Over industry events to further my knowledge or refresh.
Getting In Touch and Working with Me:
From the moment we start talking you can expect a friendly welcome, full focus and reliability from start to finish. I always endeavour to give a quick response and ascertain your exact requirements for your project and maintain a pleasant working relationship. You can download any of my demos and I can either provide further samples of my work if required. I can even record a custom demo for you so you can get an idea for how everything will sound.
I use Source Connect and Clean Feed for live remote sessions from my home studio or a session can be arranged at a studio of your choice.
