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. The sideline to chatting on the radio daily, was regular requests for voiceovers! But it was the impact of the work for London Buses that turned voiceovers 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, Skype and many more.
Voice - 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.
