Elinor Hamilton

Warm, assured, friendly, natural, experienced, fun

Voice Description

Elinor has a warm, friendly, natural, neutral British voice. She can be everything from smooth and corporate to sexy, clubby and commercial (and most things between!)

She's always happy to take direction, and offer samples if you'd like an idea of the read first, before you go ahead and book the whole session.

Clients enjoy working with Elinor because she's professional, friendly, and always good-humoured - and is particularly proud of the repeat business she gets as the female (and probably slightly prettier) half of SayerHamilton.

My Voice Experience

Elinor has a warm, friendly, natural, neutral British voice and can turn her mild northern accent on or off, depending on your preference!

With over 15 years' experience, she has voiced a variety of projects for major multinational corporations - from commercials, to health and safety training and e-learning, as well as more locally focussed projects for smaller organisations. She also has one of the most iconic voices in the UK - as the female voice of several London Underground Lines.

From her own broadcast-quality ISDN studio, she's heard on all the major UK radio and TV networks, including the BBC, Channel 4, ITV, Global Radio, Bauer, UTV, as well as numerous independent commercial outfits and TV stations. Previous and current clients include Coca-Cola, Sony, British Telecom, Virgin Trains, Santander, Braun, AstraZeneca and Tesco.

As one of the leading corporate narrators in the UK market, Elinor is particularly comfortable with medical and technical terminology, but is equally happy recording audio for educational resources, thanks to her clear, friendly, non-patronising delivery which is perfect for children.

My Training

Ellie began her broadcasting career as a presenter and producer with Emap Radio (now Bauer) from 1997-2002, then Real Radio (GMG) in from 2002-2005, bringing her sparkly character and cheerful nature into every programme. A background in production made her very technically able - and she still is.

In 2001, she formed SayerHamilton with MVO Phil Sayer, one of the UK's leading male voice overs and corporate narration specialists.

Between them, their friendly approach, technical knowledge, and their understanding and passion for the spoken word, has made SayerHamilton one of the UK's most successful voiceover partnerships.

Elinor has 3 years' acting training and holds a first class honours degree in Drama from the University of Manchester.
