My Voice Experience

"We are more than satisfied with your performance... we appreciate your professionalism in handling our project. Hope to work with you again."
-Michael R., Voice123 client 2014 (Music Video Intro Narration)

"The client loves your voice, intention, tone and mood!!"
-Daniel M., Voice123 client 2014 (Video Promo Narration)

I am a professional singer-songwriter, musical theatre performer, actor, vocal tutor and musician who has recently decided to enter the world of voicing after my demo and I recently made the very final round for a day job as a Radio Copywriter & Voiceover artist for a major network- a job that ultimately went to a guy on this occasion. Time for this gal to give it a go!

As a singer, I have had years of experience in professional studios and my self-produced material has appeared on radio and television as well as in prominent events including a recent concert with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra.

Original song placements:

2013: "Seeing Other People" - Theme song - Short Film appearing at Dam Short Film Festival, Colorado, USA

2012-2013: KidsCan Charitable Trust NZ Nationwide Television + online ad Campaign theme song: "Other People"

2012: "Fairy Lights" performance with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra at their annual Christmas concert, CBS Arena

2011: "Fairy Lights" performance at Coca-Cola Christmas In The Park, Christchurch. Screened on Nationwide TV Highlights show

2011: " The Emotion" featured on "Anthem In Black" NZ Olympics Committee Official Album of the Games.

2005 " Stupid Nothing Song" featured on NZOA Kiwi Hit Disc #73

As a classically trained singer (to grade 8 level) and actor who also sings jazz/pop, my voice is very malleable and I am able to access a wide range of techniques to adjust tone, placement, pitch, and breathiness/lack thereof for a wide variety of characters and sounds. I have a great understanding of vowel correction, rhythm, pace, breathing and articulation.

In my home studio I am not only able to record spoken and sung voices, but I am also able to create and add original music/jingles/sound fx to your projects. I also have a royalty free music and sound fx library.

I am also happy to write copy. I have scripted all but the first demo that you hear.
