Tobyn Leigh

Believable, credible, funny, sexy, real

Voice Description

I am an experienced voice actress with a wide range and proven delivery. Believability, sincerity, heartfelt and genuine, my vocal abilities always deliver a "real" quality, but if announcer is what you want, I can do that too. As a vocal artist I can give you funny offbeat characterizations for commercials or animation, as well as reassuring authority for corporate or industrial presentations. I can sound knowing, warm and personable in educational videos, sexy and fun in commercials, and inject warmth with clarity into telephony IVR. I can tackle long scripts and bring them alive, finding just the right inflection and nuance to keep them real.

My Voice Experience

When I started in VO work in the early 80s, it was all about radio and TC commercials for the most part, with the occasional narration for a corporate or educational piece. I have years of commercial retail experience for clients large and small, and have done work on longer projects for major universities, banks and other financial institutions, hospitals, HMOs, insurance providers, pharmaceutical companies and the like. I started branching into telephony and IVR work around 1994, and these days the applications for voice work are almost endless. I do lots of material that is destined for the internet and cyberspace in one way or another. I have small town clients, regional and national clients and have done work for international companies as well. I've done various kinds of work for Converse shoes, AT&T, Microsoft, Keystone Mercy Health, KPMG and others. I just finished doing a set of lectures for a Japanese company that specializes in English as a second language instruction.

My Training

I have a BA and an MFA in theatre art. I currently teach communications and public speaking at a small Midwestern college in the U.S. I first began doing VO working at a college radio station. Later I worked in radio and then in TV news. I also have worked in creative at a couple of ad agencies. Along the way I have written lots of copy and produced lots of various media, as well as performed on camera, on stage and behind the mic.

My training and experience in theatre, music theatre, media and in advertising have all informed my career as a voice actor/artist. I also have done studies in psychology and sociology -- understanding why people behave as they do and make the choices they do also helps understand the emotional quality vocally necessary in making words on a page become real in performance.

And then there's life itself. I've had rich life experience which also translates into rich vocal performance.

My Studio Equipment

I use Cool Edit Pro (which has now morphed into Adobe Audition) and I have a Behringer Euroback1202 mixer and an MXL V6EM mic in my home studio. I have a small music library and I can do some production and mixing, but that's not my forte. I am best at performance. I have high speed broadband internet access and most of my jobs these days are transmitted electronically. However I could go to a studio in the region if need be.
