Akire Erika

Female Voice...Great Singer. (10-50 yrs.)

Voice Description

-Played VH1 Mob Wife Love Majewski in ID Discovery Channel's #1 Rated Episode "I Married a Mobster"

Just like my personality, my voice wears many "faces" as well!!! I have experience in both speaking voice work AND singing, and am currently a full time working vocalist.

**I have also COMPOSED and RECORDED many high quality original JINGLES and SONGS for radio/tv/film and more. (check IMDB profile for more!!!!)
COPY and PASTE LINK: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3505540/

Singing work has been for both commercial and musical projects, particularly pop, dance, R & B and rock songs. I have worked on every level including doing demos for major labels and jingles for commercials. I know how to "sell a song."

My SINGING voice for both COMMERCIAL and MAINSTREAM MUSIC and can be:
-warm and sultry like Blondie and Shirley Manson (from the band Garbage)
-high pitched like Axel Rose
-friendly and happy like the Corrs
-soulful and a little rough like Bonnie Raitt
-country twang like Reba Mcentyre
-loungy and Vegas style
-soulful, deep and bluesy
-and more

For SPEAKING voice-over work again, I take direction very well and can sound anywhere from 10-50 years old. Because of experience in and training with singing I am familiar with how to manipulate my voice to be anything from:
-have extreme or little trebel, bass, etc.
-sound rough, smooth, young. old, alien, etc.

For documentary, industrial and corporate presentations, I have a friendly and familiar sound to my general speaking voice and know how to manipulate it to be different ages.

I am able to manipulate my voice easily and take direction very well. I have gone into the studio and produced sounds I have never done before because I seem to have a very good understanding of what people want.

My availability is VERY flexible and I can record from home upon request. I am looking forward to working with you!
