***Jan. 1, 2014: Check out Shannon's newly recorded Commercial, Audiobook, and Narration demos on her profile!***
Meet Shannon Gingell: a fresh voiceover talent who can’t wait to make your project a success. An extensively trained actress with a BFA in Drama from New York University: with training in Theatre, Film, TV, Voiceover, Commercials, and more. Shannon will charm your listeners with her relatable, friendly, Girl-Next-Door quality. Her conversational and intelligent sound will underscore both the appeal and credibility of your project.
Shannon is highly versatile and well-suited for many varied types of vocal projects. Her youthful, cheerful and energetic style is great for television and radio commercials, as well as for animation & video games. She is especially well-matched for projects geared toward child and teen listeners such as advertisements for electronics, clothes or college visits. On the other end of the spectrum, her intelligent, professional style is great for documentaries, podcasting, educational projects & tutorials, industrials, audio tours, & corporate projects, among other things. She is comfortable with medical & technical terminology. Her wide vocal range makes her a perfectly suited narrator for audiobooks of many different genres, styles, and age ranges, from children’s books & teen novels to self-help books to tense thrillers.
Shannon’s voice has also been described as: believable, sweet, warm, witty, enthusiastic, sympathetic, upbeat, genuine, confident, perky, educated, caring, spunky, soothing, persuasive, natural, and engaging. Regardless of the vocal style she uses or type of project she’s working on, Shannon will help bring your project to life.
Shannon’s language is Standard American English with a vocal age range of Child to Young Adult. She already has a few accents under her belt, and since she is a quick study of dialects, Shannon would also be happy to learn a new accent specifically for your project.
Shannon is a talented and hard working artist who brings strong choices to the table but who also takes direction very well, ensuring that the final recorded product is exactly what you’re looking for.

I've gotten solid voiceover training (both through my NYU program and through workshops in NYC and Philadelphia) as well as extensive training and experience in acting, voice/speech, singing, and more. Acting resume available upon request. Also much experience working with children in educational and playtime settings, as well as a "reading buddy"/storyteller, etc. (more information on this is also available upon request).
I have a promising, unique voice along with plenty of enthusiasm, professionalism, and dedication to my work. Since I've been on Voices.com, I've recorded a PSA for an online weekly radio broadcast, and have had numerous producers tell me that they love my voice and that they'll be keeping me in mind for future projects.
