Barb Lyon


Warm - Clear - Engaging - Inspiring - Positive ------ 5 Star Voice Actor FAVORITE me so I'm only a click away! I want to be part of your team. No, really...I love collaboration! You bring the script and concept, I’ll bring the optimism, natural wit and my down to earth nature that’s sure to resonate with your audience. Best of all, I’m pretty darn fast, routinely delivering projects in 1 business day, if not mere hours. ​ I like to be ready for anything. My StudioBricks Vocal booth features a Neumann TLM49, Source Connect Standard, ipDTL + ISDN, Skype, Zoom and Phone Patch capabilities. ​ As a member of Global Voice Acting Academy, I’ve trained with David Rosenthal, and I’ve workshopped with Gabrielle Nistico, Joyce Castellanos, and also Linda Bruno and Allison Jayson. Gotta stay sharp! ​ Ultimately, I’m just a creative, simple gal who keeps my bird feeders full, loves cooking (my home-made BBQ sauce is to die for), and enjoys spending time training my dog. ​ So c’mon…let’s make something great!
