Baby to Bag Lady, Chicken, Accents, Characters

Voice Description

Evette brings just that right panache to your project! She works hard to understand your story to make every voice believable. The flexibility in her bright and versatile voice produces deliveries that are fun, enthusiastic, energetic, and sincere. She can give you the voice of a baby, a young child, a teen, adult, an elder, multiple characters, and even a chicken! She can also accent them with a sophisticated British or Southern charm, or a less than sophisticated Southern draw or working class Cockney. She has a great ear and picks up quickly on accents and sings on key. She is ready to try anything and give her very best. Whether it's for a commercial, animation, cartoon, narration, puppets, audio book, radio, promo, film or video game, Evette can tell your story just the way you imagined, or even better!

My Voice Experience

Evette’s very first VO job was in 2005 on a looping project replacing the voice of a waitress in an independent film. That year she also had acting roles in 3 independent films (one which has an IMDB credit), and 3 student films. During that same time, her young daughter became a very successful SAG and AFTRA commercial and voice talent, and she spent a lot of her time managing her daughter’s auditions and gigs. Evette had the fortunate opportunity to be in the booth while her daughter worked and to get loads of experience behind the scenes, which included recording some of her auditions from home using one of the first USB microphones, the Blue Snowball, and editing with Audacity and submitting for roles, some of which she booked. In 2008 Evette volunteered with AIRS-LA where she again had a most fortunate opportunity to take instruction from great masters such as Ed Fallen, Max Flehinger, and Steven Heller. She was responsible for 5-10 minutes of content each week, which required her to find/create the content, record it, edit it, and upload it. “These guys kept me on track and taught me so much!” She also has Voice Over training from Marc Cashman, Janet Wilcox at UCLA Extension, and Susan Palyo at VoiceTrax West. She has taken voice lessons from Pat Whiteman and Roger Burnley. She has taken numerous acting classes and a commercial acting workshop, which include The Beverly Hills Playhouse, Second City, John Homa, Jeff Dockweiler, Toni Attell, and Henry Leblanc.

From 2005 (to present), Evette’s young daughter is a very successful SAG and AFTRA commercial and voice talent. Especially earlier, Evette spent a lot of her time managing her daughter’s auditions and gigs.

Her daughter is in college now, and Evette has more time for her own work.

Additional Skills

Evette is originally from Southern Indiana, and moved to Southern California almost 15 years ago. She has spent most of her adult life being a single mom working multiple odd jobs while keeping up with her daughter's education and acting career. She has done everything from selling artwork door-to-door, to cleaning toilets, to decorating wedding cakes, to being an executive assistant to an engineering genius, and then to a music business manager. She has done bookkeeping, tax preparation, babysitting, and has taught gymnastics to little kids. She has bought and sold real estate, including short sale deals. She remodeled a house with day laborers and a smart friend, which included her finishing drywall, painting, and putting stucco up on the entire outside of the house with her own two hands. She sold golf apparel online with eBay and her own webstore. To save money she learned PhotoShop to edit her daughter’s headshots, and some programming language to do a little web design. You name it, and she has probably had some sort of hand in it along the way. She is a beauty school dropout, and enjoys home repair projects and drawing. She has played basketball, although she was a cheerleader in high school. She also played trumpet in the marching band in high school and college. This past summer she took a motorcycle riding skills course.
