Published by Lin Parkin

January 3, 2011

Amy&Grace Taylor Voicey Winners.jpgAmy Taylor, a voice over professional based in the United States, is the current winner of the Voicey Award for Best Female Voice. To add to the excitement, Taylor's daughter, Grace, also won an award in the category of Best Child Voice. Mother and daughter were elated to be able to share in this momentous occasion.

"It was thrilling to be acknowledged by my peers by receiving the Voicey. I'm speechless" says Taylor. "I was especially happy for Grace. She works so hard at her craft."

The Taylor's are close enough to New York City that they can travel there if asked to by clients. But thanks to technologies like ISDN and Source Connect, they can live in a small town, audition and even record the gig from their home studio.

The pair received matching Voicey Awards made of optical crystal, which are prominently displayed in their home recording studio.

You may have heard Amy's announcements while shopping at BJ's or Kmart. Or perhaps Amy's voice helps you navigate to your destination on your GPS. On TV, radio, on the web, on your phone or in your favorite store, Amy's voice can be heard in English and Spanish.
