~Amy Egana / Marketing Consultant / American State Bank

"Shirley Dalmas is a one-of-kind artist. Not only does she read well on camera and come across to viewers as genuine and authentic, but her Voice Over technique is also spot on. She understands how to breakdown a script and work with the director to get the best VO read for the job. But, interestingly enough, she usually hits the read right on the money during her first try and typically doesn't need many adjustments. Shirley is extremely professional and a delight to work with. She would be an asset to any team, production or project."
~Beau Puckett & Pat Cauley / Producer & Creative Producer / brand new media US (BNM)

"Shirley is a highly talented voiceover professional I had the pleasure of collaborating with. All around she was fantastic to work with, and most importantly her talent made her a clear winner among many who auditioned. Her control over tone, pace and personality was superb. Her commitment and level of service went above our expectations. I would highly recommend Shirley for any VO project if you're looking for the best result possible."
~George, Executive Producer / Company name withheld as per NDA

"It must be a dream to get to work with Shirley all the time."
