Jenny M

Jenny's voice is real. Believable.  Young(ish), quirky, upbeat and engaging.  A warm northern voice, clear and conversational, bright and energetic with a Lancashire twist.

From girl next door, to energetic young Mum to edgy youth, Jenny's voice is equally at home in a regional radio ad or edgy Spotify sound bite as it is in a professional corporate read or compassionate charity project. 

In the late teens to mid-40’s age range, Jenny can temper tone from fun and enthusiastic to compassionate and understanding, sophisticated and stylish right around to confident and contemporary.  She is often booked as ‘the voice of the customer’ or when clients want an authentic northern voice to create real standout for their brand.

Voice Descriptionengaging, young, warm, friendly, genuine, down-to-earth, cheerful, relatable, confident, youth, hip, bright, clear, chatty, melodic, quirky, open, animated, believable, natural, real, upbeat, honest.

Accents - Jenny has a natural Lancashire accent, but northern accents are her forte, particularly Scouse, Mancunian, Yorkshire and of course broad Lancashire.  She can also read completely naturally and believably in Welsh, Cockney, Scottish and Irish accents as well as internationally - standard, none regional American, New York, Texan, Californian, Russian, French and Australian.

Characters - what do you need?  Sloany, excitable Aussie, bumbling old Lord, deep south redneck, Texan dixie chick, well spoken newsreader, Californian valley girl, agressive Russian, French seductress, Lancashire lass, edgy Landan teen innit… give Jenny 20 minutes prep and there isn’t much she can’t do.

A commercial and corporate VO with an impressive portfolio of radio, animation, film, corporate, audiobooks, promo, product demo, e-learning, in-store, on-hold and IVR projects.

Jenny has an in-depth understanding of the radio industry in particular, having enjoyed a 10-year career in sales, creative and voiceover for Bauer, Global and The Wireless Group.  She is also a creative copywriter and still writes ads on a freelance basis for The Wirless Group.  So, she understands the creative process and the importance of interpreting copy and taking direction effectively.  As a result, commercial delivery comes naturally.

Testimonials
“Jenny has a very clear voice with great intonation. She was asked to narrate a film for a high profile client on a fast turnaround and she delivered on time and on budget. She is a true professional and a pleasure to work with. I can’t recommend her highly enough."
-EMMA CLARKE - PURPLE DOOR MEDIA
"Jenny is one of the friendliest and easy to work with people I deal with on a weekly basis. Never one to turn down a challenge, Jenny deals with each project with a cheery demeanour. Professional and helpful to a fault, I can't recommend her highly enough."

Emma

In 2006, Emma was asked to voice the announcements for London Buses’ new onboard announcement system, iBus.  11 years and more than 60,000 announcements later, it’s fair to say that this job has completely changed the direction of Emma’s career – and she’s certainly not complaining!

Having trained as a dancer and spent several years dancing her way around the world, when her knees faltered Emma had a lasting ambition she wished to fulfil, to become a television presenter.  En route to becoming a TV weather presenter, Emma found and fell in love with radio, presenting breakfast shows for Cardiff’s Red Dragon FM and London’s Capital Gold along the way.   But it was the impact of the work for London Buses that turned voice overs into a business and a passion.

Working primarily from her home studio in the heart of Teesdale, Emma voices for clients from around the world, working not only on transport announcements but also on commercials, e-learning projects, explainer videos, phone systems and more. 

Emma’s clients include Transport for London’s Buses, Overground Trains and Riverbus systems and TfL radio advertising, Go North East’s buses, Amazon Fire TV, BP, Stanstead Airport, DLA Piper, Boehringer Ingelheim, Unilever, Anglia Examinations and Skype. 

Emma’s voice is accentless and clear, a little bit upmarket without being in the slightest bit plummy! Equally aspirational and accessible, but with depth and richness – hence being described as a ‘cabernet I’d have to cut with a steak knife’.  Her clarity makes her ideal for audiences where English is not the first language, which is no doubt why she works for numerous overseas clients, and on internationally-targeted e-learning projects.

Testimonials

I have worked with Helen on several e-learning projects here in Dublin and I can say without hesitation that she is a first-rate voiceover artist. In her wonderful, neutral English accent, Helen demonstrated her ability not just to narrate, but to do character-based voicing as well. Add to this her exceptional sight-reading skills and her ability to interpret direction and you have the perfect ingredients for a VO who won't have to do take after take after take, ultimately saving you grief and expensive studio time. Helen is personable, reliable and professional and I'm happy to recommend her to anyone who needs a great VO for their project.

Testimonials

Anthony delivered some excellent voice work for our BBC Bitesize ‘Food Chain Challenge’ project . He came in at short notice, and turned around a series of tests to ensure the client were happy with his tone and delivery, and then, not only delivered work at a consistently high standard, but also ensured a smooth process to launch with pick ups where we discovered additional v/o was needed. He turned around work efficiently and responsively, and, most importantly, with good humour. We would absolutely work with Anthony again, and would recommend him wholeheartedly for any voiceover work.
