Shelley Chester

Character, Animation, Deep, Wry, Strong, Versatile

Voice Description

Deep sultry smoky voice. Great comedic timing. Very dynamic in range and expression. Easy to listen to with a warm caring vibe for narration. Professional and strong yet smooth for presentations. Character specialist! For characters I have a wide variety of stock voices as well as a number of dialects. A wide range from low scary male sounding creatures to as high as a small child amped on candy. I can conjure up hundreds of voices. Mix a dialect with a character and it takes on a whole new dimension. GREAT cartoon characters, children, animation and comedy voices. Wide vocal range. Versatile! Perfect voice for children's animated features, narrations, educational videos and audiobooks.

My Voice Experience

I have been in the acting field for over twenty eight years. Uniquely gifted with the ability to mimic voices, characters and dialects, I am poised to take on a variety of projects. I taught acting, specifically dialects and characters, for over two years in Denver. Having done improv for an additional two years, I developed characters on the fly. Mixing dialects with a character brings a whole new dimension to the voice. My voice is one that needs to be heard! Perfect voice for children's animated features, narrations, educational videos and audiobooks.
