"Kira did a wonderful job with all of my voice over / talent projects. On one occasion, she provided exactly what I needed on 1 day's notice. We were able to drop in her voice over and produce a radio commercial in less than 24 hours start to finish. She also has great range. I strongly recommend Kira Gurnee." - Bill Cegelka, Ronald McDonald House Charities

"I hired Kira on several occasions. She is such a true expert that she not only pleased my client with her work, but was so efficient that the cost of renting the sound booth was a lot lower than expected because she nailed it the first time around. We didn't have to spend time redoing anything! I call it "one shot, one kill" voice over work. She is a true professional and recommend her highly to anyone needing her work. I look forward to hiring Kira again very soon. Thank you Kira!"-Jean-Michel Bernstein, President, Emarcom, Inc.

With a wide vocal range and knack for nailing what someone hears in their head, Kira is currently the promo voice for some of the SONY Pix movie channels and has done hundreds of projects for clients including The Grammy's Pacific Northwest Awards, Yahoo, Bayer, OPI nail care, Marriott, Bank of America, Rolls Royce windscreens, Simmons Beautyrest, Ronald McDonald House, Oribe hair care, Duke University, American Girl, Disney Family Travel, Dunkin Donuts, Kia, Fortune Magazine, A T & T, Bausch and Lomb, Hewlett Packard, MTV animated shorts, PBS documentaries, SPEED TV show narrations and many others.

Kira's voice can be heard on hundreds of commercials from local Radio and TV spots to National and International campaigns. Clients know she will always represent their brand image just they way they want. She easily embraces many vocal attitudes and descriptions such as:
guy next door
- warm
- trustworthy
- girl next door
- genuine
- non announcer
- mom
- doctor
- sexy
- smooth
- breathy "beauty read"
- textured husky or gravelly

- and many more

As one of the most sought after vocal talents for Industrial and Corporate Videos, Kira takes delight in making potentially dry material engaging, interesting, and easily understood by the listener. Her repeat clients know they can count on her to keep the listener's attention and help them understand the material.

With her knowledge of Medical and Pharmaceutical terminology, Kira is at the top of the list for Training Videos by companies like Astra Zeneca, Novartis, and Merck since producers know they can count on her to get the pronunciation right and actually understand the material.

Kira has done numerous Book Trailers for best selling authors such as Janet Evanovich, Debbie Maycomber, and Sophie Kinsella. She was fortunate enough to be asked to do the tongue in cheek children's Audiobook, GOODNIGHT iPAD, which garnered critical acclaim and many adult fans.

Kira often surprises clients by getting it right the first time and cutting down the time needed in the studio and editing booth, thereby saving clients money! A true "one take wonder."

Kira has a vocal range and sense of fun that allows her to play characters from grade school age to old age. She has a catalogue of character voices ranging from little boys to evil queens, with a little bit of everything in between. Kira has done Animated Films, Shorts, Cartoons, Video Games, and even on screen Avatars that interact with a live audience. She can also be heard as three of the characters in the animated short "Nimrod and Stinky's Antarctic Adventure" on the Mr. Popper's Penguins DVD.

-Kira is fun to work with! She loves what she does and:
- takes adjustments well
- understands the audience for a project
- is quick to pick up on small details in the script
- maintains good energy and vocal quality
- and can even spot grammatical errors and suggest changes if wanted

Service Description

You know that moment when someone else really gets what you're talking about? That is what Kira loves to bring to the table. She doesn't just talk. She Listens.

- All projects include a free rehearsal to make sure the vocal attitude and sound are just what you have in mind. Most clients are surprised how quickly Kira nails it, saving them time and money. She can give you subtle changes in the read so it is just what you were hoping for!

Kira also prides herself on recording in a broadcast quality sound booth, at professional levels, so you get a product that you will be proud to hear representing your brand. No barking dogs or noisy children in the background, and no huge breaths or mouth pops on the recording.

Finally, if by chance she doesn't get it right, or there is a technical issue, Kira will be happy to do a pickup session free of charge to make sure you are happy with the final read of the script! Script changes after the fact would incur a small pickup session fee.

    / 5 Demo Duck for Job #151133 Internet Security Kira was great to work with and very professional! My only comment is that it would have been nice to get at least a single read all the way through so the flow of the script would be more natural rather than a line by line recording to edit together.
