Gretchen Martin

Girl Next Door, Sexy, Spirited, Accents, Elderly

Voice Description

I've always been told I have a "good phone voice", a "sexy" voice and a "warm" voice. And so I'm running with it... I've been cast for mother, woman, british accent, southern accent, elderly, and teen voices. I do a lot of character work. I played around a lot as a kid, was very imaginative, and gave all my stuffed animals a voice. Being a voice over actress is a natural progression from where I came.

I have also done PSAs, radio announcements, and have a clear presentation voice. I'm a great speaker for business presentations as well. I can do flat or spirited reads upon direction. I can also do fast talking and remain audible. I can sometimes sound a bit raspy (best for morning recordings! hee.)

Try me.

My Voice Experience

My first experience as a voice artist was doing background voices at Klasky Csupo animation studio where I was an employee.

I later became a toy sculptor and artist. I was hired to sculpt and create characters and then hired on to do their voices.

I got a big break and was cast alongside Kevin Costner for the DVD extras on the movie "Open Range." I played all the female character voices, including Ben Miskimon (elderly pioneer woman) and Evelyn Cameron (British by birth) in the DVD extra documentary entitled "America's Open Range".

I was cast to play more pioneer women in an interactive display at the Las Vegas Springs Preserve Museum where my voice comes out of statues.

I have done PSAs for radio.

I regularly do voice overs for online video web advertisements.

I recently did six voices for a 1920s documentary entitled "Flappers, Speakeasies, and the Birth of Modern Culture" that will be offered in school libraries and is planned to air on public broadcasting station, PBS, for educational purposes. It is also available on Amazon.
