Highlights

I am a full-time professional voiceover artist, radio and television announcer, commercial actor, and corporate spokesperson, (VO and On-Camera) with a BA in Theater from UC Irvine and over 20 years of experience in studio, on camera and on stage in the Los Angeles area.

Experience

As a classically trained and highly versatile actor, Debbie Grattan has leveraged her talents over the past two decades into a very successful career as a voice over professional. With a degree in Drama from UC Irvine, and awards for her stage performances from the Los Angeles Times, Drama-Logue, and a Theatre Woman of the Year Award in Southern California, this Orange County native played nearly every stage venue in the Southern part of the Golden State, culminating with leading performances at the Tony award-winning South Coast Repertory Theatre and the Laguna Playhouse.As she loaded her resume with stage work, she was also finding the proximity to Hollywood and the television industry a draw, and won roles in episodics, TV movies, commercials, infomercials, and many gigs, both live and filmed, as a corporate spokeswoman. Debbie also found tenure as an actor with a decade of service to a comedy improv group, performing live interactive theatre, and honing her skills in thinking “off the page”.With a lifetime as an actor, and over 20 years behind a microphone, voicing literally thousands of scripts for hundreds of satisfied clients, her customers have come to expect professional, dynamic, top quality delivery from this seasoned veteran. Debbie uses her warm, friendly style to voice everything from online narrations to Disney parkwide announcements to national television and radio campaigns. She has worked with scores of well-known clients including BMW, Hasbro, Microsoft, TimeWarner, AT&T and HBO, seamlessly shifting between the conversational, the humorous and the dramatic. She has trained diligently with respected experts in the field including Kalmenson & Kalmenson, Voicecaster, Marc Cashman, Joanie Gerber and Carroll Day Kimbel.Not only will she deliver exactly what you need, in record time, she’ll make sure everyone has a good time in the process. Once you work with Debbie, you’ll understand what all of her other loyal clients already know….that Debbie delivers ….a LOT more than just lip service!

Testimonials

I was just telling Shannon that I can tell the talent who have had to deal with broken washers and outdated kitchens ~ love the real-ness of your reads ;)

Casting Company - Various bookings

Thanks Debbie. This is outstanding! I shared the Overview audio with the client and they love it.

I look forward to working with you again in the future.

Fishing Lounge

Thanks, Debbie. Great, as always.

Egg Studios

Thanks, Debbie. This is fantastic!!!
We really appreciate the quick turn-around.
Debbie's quality of work as well as work ethic have been superb.


Dodge Communications

I wouldn't change anything on VO, as it was executed perfectly within our tight timeframe which was greatly appreciated and you were awesome to work with and will surely use you again.
Awesome work! Thank you, these sound perfect and thanks for supplying several different speeds and tones.

They Creative

Wow, Thanks Debbie!!
Just also to let you know, the client was very pleased with the VO on the recent Surgin DSS Device animation project.

Device Pharm

Debbie was immediately proactive to our email inquiry.. From helping us get a sample read of a script within hours, to several takes to choose from for the finished VO in less than 48 hours! I normally don't have that short of a time to produce any recoded project, but between her and the studio, they helped us deliver VO for a finished TV spot in record time. I am very grateful for her talent and professionalism and I am delighted to offer a very enthusiastic recommendation. In a word... remarkable!

Orange County, CA Ad Agency

I work in a call center, and literally found Debbie on a random site offering a host of VO talent, to work on our IVR prompts. it was one of my best 'finds.' I interviewed the best from that site, and Debbie jumped out as the person we wanted our clients to hear everytime they call in. her prices are fantastic and she has become a true partner for our business. She is superb in all facits of customer service. Debbie's quality, speed of delivery, and professionalism is above the rest. She is always willing to go the extra mile, or ask great questions that i might have overlooked. having a partner that will review your scripts instead of just recording and assuming you are perfect is awesome. that is a great attribute when you conduct all business via email in separates states! Distance is nothing since debbie is very response oriented and never hesitates to jump on the phone and figure out the small stuff. Although im sure we are a small part of her 'book' of clients, i always feel like we are her top priority! Being in a service business ourselves, we often have fast deadlines that appear out of nowhere, and Debbie always works with our schedule and has never once mentioned a time constraint. thats all the business. But I cannot exclude the fact that she sounds Great! I get compliments on her talent from callers... and a few recognize her from her other work. really puts a professional glossy cover on our IVRs! thank you Debbie for all your hard work! truly appreciated!!

CWB

I've worked with Debbie for over twenty years and she continues to be the consummate professional: an excellent voice, wonderful to work with, creative, always open to suggestions, and always prepared for every session.

This was our first time using voices.com. The choices were very tough... Debbie clearly stood out over the other 80 artist. We had a very low budget and a short timeline but what we got was top quality service, performance, professionalism and best in the business talent... Thank you Debbie for giving our project the "upgrade" that we needed !

Debbie is a very talented voice actress. She takes direction very well and masters a lot of different styles - from the commercial to the more personal 1-on-1. She is super professional and for us it was a great plus that we could participate live over the phone during the recording session.

We give our warmest recommendations of Debbie.

Debbie is very professional and made what seemed technically difficult appear to be easy! For instance, we needed her to sound natural and unrushed - yet she had to cram our script into 2 minutes when it looked like it should take 45 seconds longer!

She did it - quickly and without pulling a Star Trek Scottie ("this is impossible, we've only got one engine").

Highly, highly recommend her and look forward to working with Debbie on future jobs!
