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.

Terence Gower, visual & multi-media artist

BTW you did a great job and we will have other work for other clients for you I'm sure.

Happy New Year – I hope you enjoyed your time off. Your V/O’s all sounded FANTASTIC and I was so happy with them. Your voice was perfect, and I’ll really glad you were willing and able to do these before you left.

Thank you SO much!! It was an absolute pleasure working with
you.

You have a wonderful voice and have been very easy to work with. I will certainly keep you in mind for other projects.

Spark Plug Pictures

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
