About

Overview

Nicole is a South African female voice over artist with her own studio, specializing in radio and TV commercials and advertising, animation, corporate, documentary and e-Learning narration.

Passionate about making waves with her voice, she offers 24 hr delivery on her work depending on length, and runs her business, Waves, full time. She is a classically trained singer and dramatic artist with over 20 years of vocal, speaking and acting experience.

Her natural voice print is South African Neutral English, but she can perform various local and international accents. As a well-travelled South African, Nicole is exposed to, and has an ear for a multitude of accents and languages. Her natural accent lends itself to a more international audience as her voice can sound like she is from everywhere, nowhere, and somewhere depending on the brief.

Nicole has a very flexible, natural, clear and engaging voice. She is genuinely believable and confident behind the mic, delivering professional and personable reads. Her voice is warm, confident, and conversational. She is able to appeal to, and sound like many different characters and age groups. She can be a mother, a daughter, grandmother, medical professional, CEO, boss, diva, teacher and friend. From down to earth to over the top, she can sound shy and sexy, sensitive and cheeky, simple and smart, cheerful and sad and so much more.

Nicole can deliver in many different styles, hard and soft sell, business, corporate, motivational, educational, serious, fun, fictional, and realistic.

Her 5 years of work in corporate sales has given her a particular talent at providing hospitable, engaging, professional voices for your business' IVR, VOIP, on hold messaging or phone answering services. When voicing corporate videos for training, events or customer service she becomes part of the team, confidently and professionally making the audio authentically believable, authoritative, and sincere.

She started her voice over career reading for Tape Aids for the Blind. This experience gives her a real empathy for characters, and perfect pronunciation and professionalism, always keeping the authors intent and energy in every audio book. She brings words to life in the mind's eye of listeners, to transport them into the text with clarity and imagination.
When reading e-Learning and educational materials she is natural, paced, inspiring when needed and knowledgeable delivering informatively and intelligently.

Nicole's natural character is warm, friendly, kind and real. She is a perfectionist, who is reliable, hardworking, and quick to understand the needs of her clients. She listens more than she speaks (which is a lot) so she takes direction very well, and sources specific sounds from her vocal instrumental repertoire to perfect all her performances.
