Highlights

Warm, smooth, soothing ,motherly, sophisticated and engaging....all used to describe the voice over style of Mary Ann Jacobs. But there's more, this versatile performer can also project an upbeat, conversational style, educational and methodical delivery, engaging and story telling approach, and character voices when needed. With a professional career ranging from television news ...to feature reporting...to live television interviewing...to television commercials...to professional voice over work, Mary Ann has the ability to quickly interpret and convey various forms of written copy. While working in broadcasting, she co-hosted a daily live talk show for WJAC-TV; she was also a professional spokesperson for a local window manufacturer, a weekly television movie reviewer/host of the "Jacobs" Ladder" news segment...and host of the popular "Heritage Kitchen" cooking show. Mary Ann has also been a private voice instructor and has taught music and directed numerous school-related and community musical productions. Her theatrical experience includes 7 years of summer theatre at Indiana University of PA's Theatre by the Grove where she performed starring roles in numerous shows including Promises, Promises, Canturbury Tales, Cactus Flower, and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Mary Ann was also the featured singer in the local jazz/rock quartet Celebration, and sang in the show group Vocal Express which performed as the warm up group for Bob Hope and Henry Mancini.

Service Description

I recently upgraded all of my equipment and relocated to a dedicated voiceover studio. All of my voiceover recordings are made in a professionally acoustically tuned room. Now I can choose from a variety of large diameter condenser microphones and the latest in digital and analog preamp technology to suit the project. Noise free recordings result from having the recording hardware outside the studio itself.
