Julie-Ann DeanWhose voice hosts the Voice Over Experts Podcast?

We had very specific voice casting requirements in mind when we set out to find the perfect voice to host Voice Over Experts, and this charming voice actress from the UK met and exceeded all of our expectations.

Want to meet her?

To start off, I must say that picking the voice for the Voice Over Experts Podcast was an exhilarating experience.

Why was that?

Voice Over Experts is one of my favorite projects as well as one of the most uniquely helpful to both aspiring voice actors and established professionals.

When we went about casting for this position, we were looking for a voice that was clear, exuberant and quintessentially sophisticated with an edge of spunk. Also, we were interested in giving this podcast more of a universal feel.

Female British, South African and Australian voice actors (a prerequisite was that they had to be native speakers of the dialect) were considered for the role of host.

I'm pleased to announce that we did find the perfect voice for this specific project and it is with great pleasure that I introduce you to Julie-Ann Dean of the United Kingdom.

Julie-Ann Dean has a beautiful, sophisticated and endearing voice that exudes an air of confidence, wrapping a ribbon of authenticity and a youthful glow around the Voice Over Experts podcast in typical œEnglish Rose style.

A native of Coventry in the United Kingdom, Julie-Ann™s clear, crisp delivery embodies all of the characteristics that the team at Voices.com had in mind to inspire and encourage voice actors, whether beginners or seasoned professionals.

There were several aspects that set Julie-Ann apart that contributed to her being hired for the job as the host of the Voice Over Experts podcast. Contributing factors that made all the difference include Julie-Ann™s invigorating voice, her voice type, and native British accent coupled with the quality of her recording studio, Julie-Ann™s quick turnaround time and her ability to take vocal direction.

To listen to Julie-Ann Dean host the Voice Over Experts Podcast, you can subscribe to the podcast in the iTunes Podcast Directory (free of charge) or go directly to the Voices.com Podcast Center.

Please share your comments and support for Julie-Ann here. I will be notifying Julie-Ann by email to read them in the near term to hear from her colleagues!

Thank you and best wishes,

      I must admit that I was a bit thrown when I first heard her voice and how heavy her accent was... but... on the other hand... it lends an air of sophistication and professionalism to the podcast that sets it apart from just another podcast if you know what I mean.

      You guys have excellent thinking caps, that's all I gotta say!
