Highlights

Strong, wry, conversational,warm, relaxed.

With her low, resonant, warm voice, Alison specializes in natural, conversational reads -- her voice embodies the "non-announcer" style.

Alison's authoritative, intelligent delivery keeps her in great demand for narration projects; in commercial work she is frequently hired for her relaxed, approachable tone. As for characters, she goes anywhere from the syrupy-sweet mother, to neurotic secretary, to deadpan beat poet.

Testimonials

Thanks again. I can tell you are a true pro and I appreciate working with people like yourself. The spots are on the air... Look and sound good.


Pikewood Creative

The show in Washington is doing well -- good response all around. A very good review in the Washington Post last Monday.

I should mention that Canadians who visit the show usually insist that they recognize your voice. Famous in Canada, now famous in Washington!

Many thanks again for your great work on this project.

The match was like magic.  I'm serious.  It was a dead ringer for what you tracked a year and a half ago.  How is that even possible?  You are a voice-over machine!  No, scratch that.  You are a voice-over artist of the first order.
Sincere respect,
Randy Hayes

Alison was a pleasure to work with, we found post recording that our system required different audio quality than we were previously aware of. Alison worked with us quickly to make the appropriate adjustments. Our IVR sounds great!

Alison is one of the finest voice talents I have worked with. The quality of her voice is outstanding. She provided several creative options and turned our project around very quickly, addressing my revisions to perfection the first time. My client is equally delighted, which is always the Number One objective. Thanks, Alison!
