Mature, Caring, African American, Grandmother, Pro
I have a mature, somewhat gravelly, voice of caring authority and experience. My narrative presentation is crisp and well paced. People hear their patient advocate, counselor, school teacher, grandmothers and wicked step moms when I speak. I have an authoritative tone that personifies maternal concern as well as professorial knowing.
My dramatic characterizations range from intense and menacing to airy and lilting. My pitchwoman spiel is rapid fire and intriguing. I have a soft, whispery timbre that can also be either child like or sexy. My voice is very expressive and well suited to refined innuendo and insinuation.
Whether you need to hear the female voice of calm and authority, I can deliver.
