This is what a few of Kara's clients had to say:
“Working with Kara is a pleasure..her voice work is first rate..more than provide a variety of reads, she can accommodate and improve upon any direction/and or revision that my clients would request.
Plus...her easy going nature makes any type of project more relaxed and enjoyable!”
"We love working with Kara. She's a real pro who brings her energy and
unique character voices to every session."
"The best thing a director could ask for is a cast of voice actors who "get it". Kara is one of those actors. Always professional, forever creative, and shockingly charming, Kara Edwards is on my short list of talent I try to use on all of my projects. From the first day she was cast as Goten in Dragonball Z to her most recent role on Solty Rei, she has been consistent, reliable, and an absolute joy to work with. With Kara, you're guaranteed 100% performance and no excuses. When it's time for her to do her thing, she delivers. I would recommend Kara Edwards to anyone and I am fortunate to call her both a gifted colleague and longtime friend."
“Experienced, easy to work with, great sense of timing - and humor. She was first recommended to us by Pro Media Labs, and we were thrilled with the results. The very next spot that came up, she was our first choice.”
I want to thank you for lending your talent and personal inspiration to the TV spot we recently produced in cooperation with The Charlotte Bobcats. Your amazing range of talents brought an unexpected dimension to the lead part and, in my professional opinion, greatly increased its potential effectiveness with our target audience. In addition, your genuinely charming personality and approachable demeanor had a noticeably calming effect on the Bobcats personalities appearing in the spot.
Once again, thank you so much for making this project a success. And I do hope we will work together again in the future!
“YOU ROCK!!! I AM THRILLED THAT YOU ACCEPTED THIS!! You did an awesome job and it is going to be a better routine thanks to you and the voice you lent to Izzy! I have sent you the payment for your AWESOME services.”
"I was searching for a female voice for a videography job I was doing. Listening to at least 25 professional female voices, I decided on a young lady by the name of Kara Edwards. While on her Web site, I emailed her and told her of my interest. My inquiry was replied to promptly and a deal was struck. Not only did I get a timely professional result that was right on target but I met an amazing woman with many talents. The richest being her ability to handle her many gifts in a way that genuinely brightens your day, and makes you feel special."
"Thank you again for being so quick and professional! You're always at the top of my list! :)"
...Dana from Serious Vanity Music
