Best of the Best. I originally had a male voice in mind for the project, but her audition was simply too good to pass on. #1 out of 50+ auditions. Great communication and quick turnaround too!

John Bowes

I had the pleasure of hiring Abby Elvidge for my latest project, Gadzooks! A Comically Quirky Audio Book. Abby had the difficult task of imitating a very unique voice – something she did with uncanny accuracy. In addition to Abby's remarkable talent as a voice actress, she is the consummate professional. I truly enjoyed enjoyed working with Abby and would recommend her to anyone who seeking versatile voice work plus reliability and competence.

Adele Park, Straight to Audio Productions

Every word that is spoken by Abby Elvidge radiates a kind of magic hard to describe. Her intuitive nature allows her to share a story that is truly connected with the writer's vision, while captivating the listener yearning for more. I speak from a place of genuine admiration and my own personal joy of experiencing Abby's work first-hand. Abby Elvidge is a top-notch Voiceover Pro with gifts beyond measure.

Melissa Moats Productions

Abby was such a perfect narrator for my first book that I hired her for the next two. Her skill was evident when she was able to successfully narrate a character who progressively aged from 4 to 44 over three books. I had many, many requests to narrate and could not be happier to have chosen Abby. Aside from her narration skills (including nailing the character voice and perfect timing,) she was professional and a joy to work with. She completed all projects before they were due. Abby's a pro from start to finish! Thank you for all your work Abby!

Mary Roach; 'America's Funniest Science Writer' - Washington Post

Over my 42 years teaching and performing,
I have come across a few performers that
make me think about being an agent.
Abby Elvidge is one. Every time I hear her, I get
sucked into the vortex of her spooky-good
storytelling skills.
