About Breanna Lees

I am told I have a very soothing voice, and have even been asked to make a relaxation cd. I’m 27, white, and naturally have a noticeable Iron Range/Northern Minnesota accent as I was born in Hibbing. I have a B.A. in Anthropology and a Linguistics minor wherein I focused my studies primarily on language change and regional dialects. I also am a spoken word performer.

Service Overview

Voice Over

I have the knowledge and training to be a versatile and nuanced performer.

Explanation/Examples:
-My voice and speech are central to my passions and career goals.
-I’ve received coaching/advice in oratory skills by various people including theatre professionals, spoken word artists and MCs from Min/St. Paul, Duluth/Superior, and Chicago, and musicians/sound techs. -
-I minored in Linguistics, and studied German (5 years), Mandarin Chinese (2 years), and Ojibwe (2 years) language from native speakers of those languages.
-I apparently have a verbal IQ (if it has any standing or relevance) of around 147 (about a tenth of a percent of people tested have higher scores in this category), but have always been made aware of my status as a “walking dictionary”
-I come from a working class background in a mining community, though. My education and experiences together have given me a unique understanding of language, particularly English.
-My accent German is apparently difficult to place, with the first guess typically being an incredulous Ireland or Australia. So I have an indistinct “English speaker” accent but not one that is immediately placeable.
-I respect different dialects and languages, and I respect the people who speak them. I adhere to the stance put forth by Linguistics as a field that no dialect/language is any more correct, expressive, or valid than another.
-I can also do some other, somewhat peculiar, things with my voice- a pretty convincing goat bleat, a crow caw, overtones, whistle register, etc...
