A Little Bit About Me

“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, England- “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 has been described as “refined northern”- natural, 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, smooth and sultry tones for delicious food and luxury products too!

Previously a family lawyer for 18 years (hmmm), now a voice-over artist (infinitely better, much more fun and creative!), I’m experienced in the corporate world and appreciate the value of listening, absorbing and delivering- efficiently! I’m accommodating, reliable and organised, comfortable with deadlines and direction and a good sight-reader, able to give a great first read.

I’ve voiced TV and radio commercials for top brand baby and parent brands, cars, spas, insurance, lingerie, travel, luxury hotels…! Unsurprisingly, I really enjoy corporate work too (promos, website videos, explainers, awards films, on-line training, animated videos, e-learning (technical language not a problem!) and telephone messaging/IVR. It’s safe to say that no day is ever the same and I love that about voiceover work!

I record in my lovely “Whisper Room” professional booth, with IDSN, in my home studio in the North East of England. I pop out to one of our wonderful local studios whenever I get the chance and I’m more than happy to travel elsewhere by arrangement.

When not in the booth, I love hitting balls with bats of various shapes and sizes- tennis and golf mainly but I’ve also recently discovered Racketlon and am getting pretty hooked! There’s also nothing better than getting out onto our stunning Northumberland beaches with my hubby and 2 gorgeous boys or travelling and discovering new places en famille.

I’d love to hear from you- do get in touch and we can chat about how I can help you!
