Voice Over Testimonials

Laya is my go-to voice-over talent with the ability to make my technically complex scripts sound more like a conversation than a lecture. She knows how to punch and inspire that passage of the text… I vouch for her as a person, creative partner and voice-over talent. — Andres Soler, Creative Director

Capgemini

We’ve used Laya as our go-to talent for a range of Fortune 100 clients. She’s a pro in every sense—on time, offers a variety of reads, takes direction well, our clients love her and her passion for what she does is evident in every session. I wish everyone we booked were as easy to work with as Laya! — Dana Hazels Seith, Copy Lead

Accenture

I don’t think I have ever worked with someone who got it right the very first time and even included a few options for me to choose from. We have used Laya on multiple projects that have required a wide range of different styles, tempos and characters. She is the master at providing the most versatile scope of work—from smart to sexy to cool—for all of my clients’ VO needs. — Bill Kaelin, Owner

Laya is a pleasure to work with. She turned around the job in no time at all, and even provided options on the tone before moving forward with the actual recording. I needed minor revisions a few times due to script tweaks and she was great about getting them done ASAP - and didn't even charge extra. She's a great communicator and I look forward to working with her again on future projects.
