Lisa Firestone

warm, real, trustworthy, sweet, authentic, sensual

Voice Description

I have a grounded, expressive voice which well suits audiobook, presentation, and anything requiring explanation or a trustworthy source.

Authentic and warm - a loving mother or embracable stranger.

My more mature delivery is smooth, natural and richly expressive, allowing a listener to hold interest in even "dry" reading material.

When it comes to character acting, I can portray a believable woman with a clear conviction and motive - whether it's vengeance on a husband-stealing neighborhood soccer mom or a tender bedtime story to a child.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

As far as characters go, I can play a rich sensual feminine voice, strong and convincing.

I can play a sweet, mild natured woman - concerned, uncertain or vulnerable.

I can vary my dialect from an American intellectual - with impeccable diction - to a California surfer.

I can play a southern belle.

Can be a valley girl or whiney teen.

I can also use the sing-song quality of a Frenchwoman speaking English.

strangely, these are all part of my past!

My Voice Experience

Once upon a time in Los Angeles, there was an insanely talented and creative young girl with a mother who tried to protect her from the evils of the entertainment industry (having failed as an actress) -

By the age of 5, she was a near-prodigy pianist ... but hopelessly glued to sheet music. While she could play Bach Fugues and Rachmanonoff Concertos, she couldn't play the Beatles or the yummy hits of her day by the BeeGees, Michael JAckson and the Knack.

Once day in 4th grade she happened upon the sheet music for the Debbie Boone She was a knockout singer - but this was before American Idol. all she could do was play and sing "You Light Up My Life" until her family begged for mercy.

In dance (ballet and jazz), she was a standout - but never joined a "company" of performers, and alas - became a master . . . student . . . of dance.

As a grown up, Lisa figured out that daydreaming has it's perks, and has managed to create a successful career as an artist - thriving to the degree she is expressing herself.

My Training

I grew up in LA. My career in the arts began in middle school when I found theatrical acting. In college I started studying at a serious professional acting school and found a commercial acting agent, which allowed me to do some local commercial work in Los Angeles.

I studied abroad in France for several months, where I continued theater, and returned to college at UCLA where i included courses in acting and film. I received my Bachelor of Arts from UCLA in English, creative writing emphasis.

In 2000, I became a professional singer songwriter, and have since recorded 4 personal cd's plus a good number of cuts on other projects. I have written and performed commercial material for local companies, and have been awarded a number of different musical awards. Recently I was asked to read script for a few local projects for the expressiveness, warmth and clarity of my voice. It comes so easily for me, I've decided to give Voice-over work 100% commitment!

My Studio Equipment

I have recorded my own demos for several years now.

I have 2 different condenser mikes to choose from.

An Alesis mixer which plugs USB into my computer.

An M-Audio interface if I choose to line XLR without any mixing or effects, also USB to the computer.

I use Sonic Foundry software, which allows me to edit or multi-track. I have also used Cakewalk and Sibelius.

I recently downloaded Source for the purpose of voiceover; fortunately I'm a quick study with software.

In the past I used ADAT - digital recording - to multitrack my songs, and have worked in a good number of local recording studios.

Additional Skills

As a professional singer-songwriter, I am very familiar with studio work and the importance of sound clarity and catching "the moment". This is something that cannot always be taught - you have it or you don't.

I have worked in professional singing situations which include everything from weddings, funerals, special events, to acapella harmony groups, and work as a Unity church Music Director part time.

What I love most about my life and work is the ability and opportunity to be expressive. Whether it's subtle or big, it's my life work.
