Natural, Trustworthy, Wry, Engaging, Soothing
Linda's voice is a distinct mix of everyday casual and sophistication.
For Commercials, Linda is definitely the real woman with attitude. She's direct, wry, provocative. However, Linda can easily transition to a warm, natural and nurturing sound.
An endorsement from veteran voiceover actor and vo teacher Jeff Lupetin (http://www.ultimatevoiceover.com):
"Linda Hamm was one of my earliest students at Acting Studio Chicago. She was highly prepared and professional in class, giving over to direction easily and quickly. As time progressed, she has become a top notch professional in the VO business. I highly recommend Linda Hamm for your next VO project!!"
For Narration projects, Linda thrives on delivering the corporate professional, "subject expert" read. Corporate, Industrial, E-Learning/Instructional clients rely on Linda to deliver a read that engages the listener and serves as the ambassador of the company.
An endorsement of Linda's Narration work from Sammy Listro, Learning & Development Consultant at The CARA Group:
"Linda has a wonderful voice and her delivery is very professional. She has a distinct tonal quality which makes listening easy to understand. I would highly recommend Linda for any voice over or recorded audio presentations."
