“Jo really knows her onions!” (Paul Carter of Get Carter)
I’m your friendly North-Easterner, Durham born and bred, now living in Newcastle upon Tyne- “an intelligent, educated, but down to earth voice…Jo will bring any voiceover project to life..a warm, husky, relaxing voice with a hint of England’s North East”(Gary Terzza, Channel 4, E4 & More4).
My voice is versatile, to suit your project- assured and articulate, calm and reassuring, friendly and chatty! As a mother of 2 energetic boys,I deliver an authentic soft, loving, maternal voice as well as a frustrated, tired one if required! Self-confessed chocoholic that I am, I have no trouble with serving up salivating, sultry tones for delicious food and luxury products too!
Previously a family lawyer for 18 years (hmmm), now a professional voice-over artist (infinitely better and much more fun!), I’m a natural people-person, flexible, reliable and organised, comfortable with deadlines, able to give a great first read and always professional.
I appreciate the value of listening, absorbing and delivering- efficiently!
I’ve voiced national and regional TV and radio commercials for top brand nappy rash creams, hair products, insurance, lingerie, travel, luxury hotels, spas, pubs and a whole lot besides…!I really enjoy corporate work too, such as corporate and website videos, explainer guides, promotional films, on-line training videos (technical language not a problem!) Having worked on several Awards ceremony short films, Charity campaigns and “calls to action” and with telephone answering, on hold and IVR under my belt too, I absolutely love the variety. No day is ever the same!
I record in my lovely “Whisper Room” booth, with IDSN facilities, in my home studio in the North East of England or often pop out to one of our wonderful local studios. I’m more than happy to travel elsewhere too- email or call me for a chat about what you have in mind!
When I’m not working, I love tennis, golf and Barre. There’s also nothing better than getting out onto our stunning Northumberland beaches with my hubby and gorgeous boys!
I’d really love to hear from you!
I look forward to working together soon!
