Korissa Olson

Extremely flexible from sultry low, to cartoon hi

Voice Description

I have the ability to be extremely flexible and chamelion with my speaking voice for voiceovers and my singing voice for jingles and ads. I have a deep sultry low voice as well as the ability to be warm and confident for narrations. On the high end I can do cartoon voices. From my experience as a professional singer, I am able to have complete control over my vocal mechanism. My biggest asset is the ability to be extremely flexible with my speaking and singing voice. I am able to sound British one second and an airhead the next. Or is it a Sultry Brunette you're seeking?
I am most fluent in German, but am able to speak in Italian and French as well. Mix in Marvin the Martian and Buffy the airhead as well!

My Voice Experience

I grew up in a singing gospel family! I then studied classical Voice performance and Opera. I sang professionally and still continue to be an active performer. I have appeared in the Minnesota Opera, Opera in the Ozarks, Erie Opera Theater and D'Angelo Opera to name a few. I am a light dramatic soprano, which means I have highs and lows in my voice which gives me great versatility in doing voice overs. I have sung country music, jazz as well as contemporary. I have always enjoyed doing voiceover work when I started doing ads in high school for department stores and local MTV ads. Recently, I was also a member of a professional group for 3 years called the Dale Warland Singers which really fined tuned my sight singing skills and the ability to sing seamless and blend beautifully. I enjoy doing cartoon voices as well! Some of my recent voice over clients have been:
General Mills- Disney Project
Concentus Assessment
Lauren Hanna Interiors
Mountz Jewelers
City Creek Press- Software Audio
National Hispanic MBA
