About Darla Middlebrook
My voice has been described as youthful, cheery and not sounding at all like an older woman. I can make my voice range from child to elder, human to creature, female to male.Read More
I can deliver finished voice tracks of dry reads (no SFX or music) or voicing with minimal SFX. I have a home studio and can take direction over the phone or via SKYPE.Read More
34 years as a Speech-Language Pathologist (recently retired), more than 20 years as a stage & film actor and over 20 years as a trained singer has given me knowledge and insight into the mechanics of the voice and speech. This wealth of experience has also helped in my development of character voices (male, female, mature, extremely elderly, creepy, bright, exotic, etc). My acting and singing background has enabled me to develop good emotional range to my voice. Currently, I am voicing podcasts for AIRS-LA (an audio internet service for individuals with visual challenges). I have completed projects for ACX, (Website hidden), Redwood Audiobooks, and Iambik Audiobooks. I am able to produce retail quality audio books from my home studio. I received a diploma as a Certified Medical Narration Specialist. I can, also, serve as a proof-listener for audio book narration productions.Read More

Bringing out the soul is exactly what Darla did! Darla is a true professional in every sense of the word.
Darla was great -- very responsive to my requests and an excellent voice. The only slight issue is that her recording setup sounds a little too bassy.
