About Kira Gurnée

Overview

Kira did a wonderful job with all of my voice over / talent projects. On one occasion, she provided exactly what I needed on 1 day's notice. We were able to drop in her voice over and produce a radio commercial in less than 24 hours start to finish. She also has great range. I strongly recommend Kira Gurnee. - Bill Cegelka, Ronald McDonald House Charities I hired Kira on several occasions. She is such a true expert that she not only pleased my client with her work, but was so efficient that the cost of renting the sound booth was a lot lower than expected because she nailed it the first time around. We didn't have to spend time redoing anything! I call it one shot, one kill voice over work. She is a true professional and recommend her highly to anyone needing her work. I look forward to hiring Kira again very soon. Thank you Kira!-Jean-Michel Bernstein, President, Emarcom, Inc.

Kira did an excellent job for us. She already knew the medical jargon and also knew how to look up specific words without any help from us. She understood what we were looking for and gave it to us as well as alternates. Great experience.

Testimonials

I've had the pleasure working with Kira on multiple projects that required VO. Not only is she quick to respond to any request but is able to turn around VO reads within a day! She provides dynamic takes, appropriate cadence, multiple accents [specifically British and American], solid educational/instructional vocal style, and is always friendly whenever pickups are needed. Be sure to reach out to her for any of your VO needs! - Samantha Thornhill, video producer

Kira is the best. I love that she allows you to listen in during recordings to provide real-time direction. She also has a magical ability to take any note you give her, regardless of how good or badly articulated it is, and either turns it into something fantastic or helps you better articulate what you are trying to say. Whenever I need a female voice, she is the first person I think of as she is so wonderful to work with. - Katie Robbins, e- learning designer

Sykes/Talent Sprout medical animations

Kira is an amazing voiceover artist to work with. Her optimistic spirit and can do attitude helped the project go through multiple rounds of full revisions. Each time keeping the integrity of our communication, collaboration, and over delivering with her voice each and every time. That is why she is amazing for our team and clients to work with. Thank you Kira. - Jason Worley, creative director
