My Voice Experience

Cara Jones is the voice of the GPS car navigation systems of the Jaguar, models of the Mercedes Benz, Land Rover, Cadillac, Ford, and Lincoln. Cara was the English-language announcer at the awards ceremonies of all outdoor games at the Winter Olympics at Nagano, broadcast around the world. She hosted a weekly radio series with Barry White, has voiced hundreds of TV commercials including spots for Toyota with Christian Slater, very successful ads for Shick, Canon, and a top jeans maker. She has voiced characters in million-selling Playstation and Sega games, such as Shenmue, Einhander, and Tekken 3. In addition, Cara spent 8 years as a prime-time English-language DJ on the #1 FM radio station in Tokyo, and much more. Working out of a commercial recording studio in Los Angeles equipped with phone patch for remote direction and full-time engineer, she is available for voice-over work around the world.

My Training

Cara began developing her signature, silky-sounding voice while at Harvard University. After completing a BA in Japanese, she signed up for the local radio station and spent three years DJ-ing in Cambridge while she finished her masters degree. She studied voice with Mark Baxter in Boston, and underwent serious on-the-job training during her nightly radio show in Tokyo - with a listenership in the millions - becoming one of the top English voices in Japan.

My Studio Equipment

Cara co-owns a commercial music and voiceover studio in Los Angeles. The Pro-Tools audio suite is staffed with a full-time engineer, vintage and modern (Neumann) mics and pre-amps, dozens of instruments, and a soundproof acoustically-conditioned vocal booth. Designed by Nigel Martinez, the studio is available for commercial use and is a client-friendly facility.
EQUIPMENT INCLUDES: Pro Tools 10; Lynx Aurora converters; Vintec preamp; Neumann mics (our favorite being a 1960s Neumann CMV-563); a large variety of analog preamps, EQs and compressors; a soundproof and acoustically-treated booth.
