Brie O'Banion

Smokey, Sultry, Sophisticated and Edgy

Voice Description

Deep, rich, smoky, bass-heavy tone - perfect for narrations, commercials and promos that call for a warm, soothing, intelligent and or authoritative voice. Sexed-up for more sensual and playful projects, or toned down for pieces that call for a more authoritative, mature, conversational, professional, or sophisticated tone. Young, edgy and raspy for more youth-oriented projects. And though most jobs seek a conversational voice, I can give you a traditional announcer's delivery as well.

I'm often sought out for jobs that are looking for an Allison Janney or Peri Gilpin style read.

I'm capable of a wide range of character voices and have a knack for impressions - which has put me in demand, specifically, for video games and animation projects.
