Janet Wilcox

Warm, Real, Mom, Authority, Characters, Accessible

Voice Description

My voice has a lot of range for commercial clients because I was the voice of Lifetime's billboards. It's warm for PSA's, and real for mom roles. Strength and authority mixed with warmth work for medical products. Narrations can range from straight forward, to dark for Discovery ID kinds of reads to sexy for fashion and beauty. Rich dark sensual tones come through for beauty and fashion. A range of real person characters are used for multiple dialogue roles. Improvised characters come to life for comedic parts.

A range of broader characters work for children's stories, animation, and video games. Different ages and accents bring these characters to life.

Promo copy has the vocal punch it needs to cut through music and effects.

Believable characters come to life in audiobooks and credible narrators come through in non-fiction books.
