Andrea Leigh

Straight-Read QUEEN, w/sultry/warm/quirky side

Voice Description

Before a couple decades of multiple, varied on-air and VO jobs and experience, I've received endless compliments on my voice tone and quality, diction and enunciation, beginning from reading into a mic on a tiny reel-to-reel at the age of 5 for kindergarten classes in my school!

I can be your bubbly best friend/girl-next-door OR the girl you're not sure you'd want to take home to Mom - and everything in between for commercials, audiobooks, narratives, PSAs, promos, etc.

- Commercials, infomercials and promos for radio, TV, Internet, and related media.
- Documentaries and audiobooks.
- Character voices: cartoons, films, videogames, and dubbings.
- IVR, voicemail, phone systems, and on-hold messages.
- Business: podcasts, corporate or industrial presentations, and web sites.

My strength is in my straight reads, whether the job calls for a compassionate, serious, or sultry female, or needs to grab attention with a business or intelligent appeal or just a fun, approachable girlfriend-style.

I love campy, comic, over-the-top, smarmy, cocky, sarcastic reads also.
