Highlights

Before she was a voice over artist, before she was an actress, Bobbi Owens was a pop/rock singer. Maybe that’s the reason her voice is so rich and resonant! Over the past few years she’s lent her voice to various Commercial spots, Documentaries, Podcasts and even Phone systems. As an actress she often gets roles that require her to portray or mimic Oprah Winfrey, so much so she was asked to narrate one of Oprah’s Biographies for (Website hidden) – BUT don’t ask her to do anymore – she loves doing voiceovers but NOT audiobooks! One of Bobbi's favorite voice-over sessions however was voicing "Female Worgen Vendor" for Blizzard Entertainment's World of Warcraft - "Cataclysm" And although she’s African American, her voice is clearly NON-Urban, in fact it’s quite Polished, Powerful & Professional – an Educated Sound. Other adjectives used to describe Bobbi’s voice are Warm, Lyrical, Elegant, Bright & Upbeat w/lots of smile, Friendly, Sassy, "Divaesque", Spokesperson. Bobbi’s Specialty: Voice “Acting” & Comedic Partner Reads. Bobbi is a featured writer/reporter on several nationally syndicated radio programs reaching over 17-million listeners, and is regularly heard on: ABC, CBS, FOX Radio, Business Talk Radio, and other syndicated programs across the U.S. If you want to see as well as hear some of Bobbi’s voiceovers please also log onto:

Experience

In 2004, Bobbi started training and working as a Commercial Voiceover Artist. Already an Actress and Singer, voiceovers seemed the next logical step. Since then, Bobbi has expanded into Narrations, Industrials, documentaries, film, web VOs, and IVR/Phone messages and systems. Verizon, Siemens, HBO, NPR, PBS, Time Warner, and HGTV like Bobbi's style. And, that style is Polished, Powerful & Professional. African American, NON-Urban, warm, rich, lyrical, elegant, bright & upbeat w/lots of smile. A friendly, sassy, "Divaesque", spokesperson. That's Bobbi

Testimonials

... Oh, I wanted to compliment Bobbi Owens. She sounds great for my format (Bright AC) and she's a great up and coming African-American announcer. I really like hearing her do the forecast for us on the weekends. Please let her know I appreciate her hard work for us.

Georgia State University for Job #199860 Vocabulary Tutoring System for Middle School Kids

Bobbi is excellent, the consummate professional! When she posted her bid, she provided information on her prior experience with audio recordings for intelligent tutoring systems and explained her process for creating individual files for each word and sentence. After we started the job, she responded promptly to all of our questions and requests. She was remarkably fast in turning around files (including individual re-recordings on our request), and she patiently advised us on the payment process (SurePay system). The recordings themselves were high-quality and were exactly what we had requested. I would happily recommend her to colleagues.
