Warm, friendly, and trustworthy - a classic English voice. Any visitor to London who travels on a bus, overground train, or Riverbus will hear me - I'm the voice of much of London's public transport!

What makes me stand out from other voiceover artists - well clients regularly comment on my flexibility in working with them to get exactly what they want, whether that's fitting in to their schedule, taking direction, or whatever's needed. Give me a try, and you'll find that out for yourself.

If you're looking for a great delivery in a British accent, as well as quick turn around of your project, or an ISDN recording session, then please get in touch to discuss your requirements. Recent clients have included Virgin Money, Tommee Tippee, VISA, Mothercare, Early Learning Centre, Alton Towers, Microsoft, X-Box, Samsung, Ciscos and more.

Emma is an absolutely top draw voice artist and presenter. I have contracted her on numerous occasions over the last fifteen years and she always delivers beyond expectations. Fantastic voice and delivery and a lovely person too!

Saland Publishing

A lot of female voiceovers seem to fall into one of two groups – young and clubby or mature and corporate. We’ve used Emma recently and were very impressed, she fills the gap between those two extremes perfectly. She has a great voice and knows how to use it, she injects enthusiasm and energy into her reads as well as warmth and pathos. I expect us to be working with her a lot more in the future.

The Giggle Group

What I liked about working with Emma was that she just made it happen: I asked her for something quite complicated to arrange but she went the extra mile to deliver what I wanted.


A big thank you to you! for being so patient and going the extra mile!
