Melanie is an award winning, experienced British narrator, voice artist and trained actor with a grown-up, honest, compassionate, down to earth kind of voice.
Her versatility is impressive: she’s great with comedy and has a fantastic ear for accents but there’s a basic kindness and a hard-wearing, well-constructed mature quality to her voice that helps her to convey the drama in any narrative – whether its the climax of a tense scene in a novel or a 30 second radio commercial.
Her specialisms are narration for audiobooks and other long-form narration, audio and radio drama & comedy and commercial reads for radio. She is in demand by charity’s and social enterprises to voice their commercials, campaigns and corporate videos.
She works as a voiceover for various corporate projects – from e-learning to presentations and she supplies overdubbing for film and TV.
