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.
