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.

    She’s brilliant!

    On the first session I had with Melanie, I knew I’d been missing something special. Her exceptional acting abilities bring something magic to everything she reads.
    As a producer I couldn’t ask for a more talented, creative and versatile voiceover artist.

    What’s more, everything she touches turns into awards! And rightly so.

    Thank you!

    I wanted to email you direct, essentially to say, in capital letters to stress my gratitude, THANK YOU. I think you have done an amazing job, with such subtlety and sensitivity – and such compellingly accurate accents, too. I’m absolutely thrilled with it – it actually sounds like a proper book, by a proper writer! – so I wanted to convey, here, both my admiration and appreciation.
