HOW I CAN HELP YOU:

Being naturally down to earth and friendly, I'll share your information in a relatable and conversational way - like a trusted friend. With many years of acting on stage and on camera, I'll bring experience and creativity to the mic. Being a lead singer in multiple rock, blues and jazz live bands, I communicate with various forms of expression, from soulful and heartfelt ballads to inspiring, upbeat dance tunes. I've got the performance chops and options to deliver your copy the way you need and desire.

I've been told I have an authoritative, warm, relatable, professional, trustworthy, caring, friendly, calming and wise yet young voice.

Wryness and attitude comes easily too, so if you need wry, I'm your gal!

RELATABLE, AUTHORITATIVE VOICE:

I have a unique gal next door voice in the alto range with a generic North Eastern American accent. Having lived in the south eastern part of the country for a few years, I can deliver a natural southern accent easily too. I get hired continually because I have a lot of versatility in pitch for many different characters and the acting chops, but mostly for the way I sound natural and real.

I live to perform and be creative. I'm a helper and doer. I'm reliable and grateful. Be assured that when we work together, I'll do my best to make you happy.

TESTIMONIALS:

“As a voiceover artist I think of Joell as a ‘go-to’ gal…she’s talented, smart, flexible, quick to adjust and responsive to feedback, as well as highly dependable. What more could you ask for?”
Ira Sakolsky
Owner, Riverway Studio

"Joell has it all! A great voice, a great look...she can really act...she looks super on camera and on top of all that she is a true pleasure to work with. Always on time, takes direction extremely well and is often found with a smile on her face. As far as we are concerned it doesn't get much better than that! L&R feels lucky to have found her and I am sure we will continue to rely on her talents well into the future."

“I had the privilege of working alongside Joell in the world premier of Lary Bloom's play, "Wild Black Yonder," at the Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center. She is the consummate professional, bringing incredible commitment and heart to every ounce of her work, constantly working to improve and develop a craft in which she is naturally gifted. I hope to have the opportunity to work together again!”

You are a wonderful reader, so great with the various dialogue, and especially the humor….thanks for your professionalism and the clear dedication you bring to your work.

My Voice Experience

I'm an experienced theater and on camera actor with strong performance ability to bring to the mic. A student of Bel Canto singing and years of performing with live rock, blues and jazz bands also helped develop skills of expressive story telling as well as breath, stamina and rhythym.

I've voiced e-learning and corporate training videos, local and national commercials, audiobooks and video game characters. I love to get creative, so if you have a character of any species, object, idea or person, just ask. I'm also a trained and experienced singer and performs live regularly, so if you got a jingle, I'm in!
