Highlights

Fun and Spunky to warm and soothing...I offer expressive reads and can provide a wide variety of interpretations. I've been described as "attention getting", "compassionate" and a "real person".

I'm a Full Time Voice Talent, recording voiceovers since 1996, and have the added benefit of having worked on your side of the glass: voice casting; coaching talent; engineering; editing since 1993.

All that experience means I respect the process and everyone's roles.

As a web startup, we had some specific needs concerning the tone, the rythm, the voice that Barb Lyon met in such an unexpected way.
MORE THAN 100% SATISFIED!!
- Such a promptly reply ... just a couple of hours!
- Very professional!
- More than we expected!
- Very available by email and really friendly!
- What else could we say....just perfect!
We received more than 45 replies from other talented voices. We decided to choose Barb Lyon because we found she had this little something in her voice that makes the difference.
At the end, we can just more than recommend Barb Lyon! A real pleasure to collaborate with her!
