Voice Description

Hi,

My name is Jo Edwards, I would love to work with you to help your project come to life!

I am a British female voice-over artist, actress and singer.

I have a bright, clear, soothing, calming and warm tone, with a neutral British accent. I would describe my speaking voice as confident, friendly, natural, and inviting with clean articulation and diction.

I have been commissioned on a wide variety of projects and have adapted to a variety of styles, age ranges, and created both regional or international accents (from 'cockney' , UK Northern, to 'downtown New Yorker'). I also speak french too :-).

With direct access to a recording studio I can ensure a fast turn around and the highest quality recording.

I look forward to working with you.

I would have no hesitation in recommending her and hope to work with her again in the future."
