Diana Dolan

Natural, Clear, mid-tone, whimsy, easy on the ears

Voice Description

Natural, comfortable voice that is easy on the ears. Able to alter voice slightly, or add effects for animation character modeling. Overall voice sound is warm, mid-tone, sexy, seductive, can be slightly nasal or giddy and childlike for children or teenage needs.

My voice has been described as: professional, neutral, low to mid-range, full, articulate, credible, friendly, upbeat, authoritative, smooth, conversational, sincere, mature and/or sexy woman's voice. I am often complimented on being very easy to understand (even in fast or very-technical deliveries,) without sounding over-articulate or preachy. I have an emergency radio background, and can certainly be strict, concise and authoritative. But I can also sound warm, loving and soothing.

My Voice Experience

I have done voice overs for a variety of projects including jingles, pop, jazz, and modern vocal stylings, and spoken voice work. I have done voice overs as a computer in a "Hal from 2001 Space Odyssey"-fashion for the Houston Rockets promotional Fan Appreciation CD, corporate training voice overs, book announcement trailers, and whimsical animation voices.

When needed, I can provide beginning to end productions, including script concept and copy writing, recording, filming or visual elements, and editing.

My Training

I have studied voice since childhood through private lessons and have studied classical, jazz, and chorale voicing styles with a number of well-known musicians and vocalists, including Jazz pianist Rob Mullins, Jazz vocalist Robin Braun, and the former 1940's film vocalist, Sylvia Bagley, who unfortunately passed away several years ago. I have also been the lead female vocalist in many local bands, including cover bands, jazz vocal groups, City Chorale groups, and original Alternative bands. My range can go from Alto to Mezzo soprano, and this carries over into my spoken voice as well.

In college, I studied graphics, design, recording, and animation technologies as well as French language and culture. Meanwhile, I was singing and playing keyboards in local bands around the Denver area. It was this experience that taught me to appreciate the uniqueness of my voice.

I now have a home studio and in my studio, as well as other studios, I have recorded several promotional recordings for teleconferencing systems, promotional CD's, educational programs, and a variety of other spots. I also acted as Executive Producer for a PSA addressing elderly concerns that aired on Jefferson County cable networks.

I love vocal work and I love helping people create the perfect recording. I am available at a moments notice 7 days a week to get things moving. I'm ready when you are!

My Studio Equipment

My studio is a cross between a Level 1 and a Level 2 studio:

Samson C01U condenser mic with shock mount and windscreen,
Headset mic setup (for lower quality voice over needs such as scratchy, or telephone sound, etc.),
Panasonic Realistic Highball unidirectional dynamic mic.

Filters and effects as available in the following software programs and interfaces:
Garage Band,
M-Box interface,
and for video needs...
Final Cut Pro,
and Adobe Premiere.

Additional Skills

I have editing skills in both audio and video.
I have copy writing skills, editing skills, illustration skills, and I am a published author.

Photography and video are also passions of mine, and I use Canon, Nikon, and JVC cameras for a variety of projects.

If a little music is what you need, I am an accomplished vocalist and keyboardist and have three keyboards and a drum machine when an original composition is needed. I also have a working music library and have existing background music when required.

With 15 years experience talking on emergency radios for the fire department, I have a great deal of experience re-creating the "radio" sound and feel. I also have skills in management, training, budgeting, operations, communications, executive level presentations, PSA production, and customer service.
