TESTIMONIALS about ilene Russell....

ilene is a gifted and memorable voice talent, filled with life and rhythmic passion.””...upbeat, fun to work with, easy to direct.”

E.Houser, Video/Radio Production Editor, Gaithersburg, MD

We had the pleasure of working with ilene in the summer of '09 where she graciously recorded a voiceover for our website. Her captivating voice introduces viewers to our artist's, Marcus Johnson, latest CD release, Poetically Justified. We have gotten a very positive response regarding ilene's voiceover and believe it has contributed to peaking interest in our product.

ilene is very professional and easy to work with. She was able to work under our tight deadline and deliver a phenomenal voiceover. She proactively created the script of the voiceover and took direction well. We were impressed with the style and variations in voiceover delivery that we were able to choose from.

We are very happy to have worked with her and look forward to working with her again.
