My Voice Experience

Rachel Alena began her career as a session singer in Los Angeles at the age of 15. Her first job for hire was as a vocalist on the children's fantasy album 'Toad.' At twenty one, she began her voiceover career. While she was in the studio singing, the producer asked her if she could speak as well as she could sing.

It's been more than 20 years since she began her career. Rachel's voice has been heard from performing with the Los Angeles Phil Harmonic to television to radio commercials to audiobooks. Rachel is also a voice talent coach.

Additional Skills

Along with voice acting I've had the opportunity to gain numerous other skills. Some of my other life experience includes:

--Traveling the country singing live music with my band; Rachel and the Ruckus, www.rachelandtheruckus.com
--Owning my own business, hiring and managing multiple employees;
--Raising two beautiful children;
--Working in a corporate environment; and
--Being a consumer in today's market.

I believe all of these things are often relevant to the voice projects that I'm presented with.
