Testimonials

“I've known Paula Burke and have had the pleasure of working with her in the recording studio many times. She is highly talented, very directable, always utterly professional and completely reliable. The results have been radio commercials and TV audio tracks that consistently perform well in the marketplace and exceed client expectations for delivered quality. I do not hesitate to call upon her when the situation dictates female voice talent with an extensive range, flexibility and interpretive strength. Nor do I hesitate to recommend Paula to anyone needing a top-caliber female voice.”

“Paula is the MOST gracious, understanding, accomplished, compassionate voiceover artist, I know. She is hands down, the easiest, most agreeable talent to work with. She still continues to amaze me with her versatility. She can play it “sweet and motherly,” then switch it to “sexy and provocative,” then change it again to “classy female professional.” Paula definitely has a wide range, but don’t look for “plain vanilla” – it’s not there.”
“Not only is Paula an exceptional voice talent, she is also extremely easy to work with. She’s always ready and eager to take direction and provide the voice and tone a producer might require. (Not that a lot of direction is usually needed – she is a true pro and knows exactly how to deliver.) Congenial, professional, talented – it’s all in one package. She’s called “Paula Burke.”

“Paula couldn't be more of a joy to work with. Her dedication is exceptional... from being on time for the start of sessions, staying extra minutes to make sure our scripts are to the Producers standards, to returning after a session for a last minute read. Paula is personable, always in a good mood and very professional. We've had the pleasure of working with Paula for many years and we could only hope she'll continue to work for us for many more.”
