2017 has been ace so far! I’m voicing full time, have worked on a few national campaigns already & have fulfilled a lifelong ambition of voicing for kids tele!
However, with over 10 years experience of presenting radio shows on local, regional & national radio stations, I can’t say I’ve not had the odd pang of wanting to make a brew, grab a biscuit & chew the fat with a listener, so this Sunday, April 30th, I’ll be back on air on Viking FM!
I’ll be hosting their afternoon show, & if my radio silence these past few months has left you wondering “What does she sound like again?”, here’s a reminder. ENJOY!
Stuff like this makes me REALLY love my job! This is for the Kiss FM network & my script direction was simply “forceful & confident with shades of bitch” – brilliant! Hear me really going for it about 17 seconds in – ENJOY
No really, I REALLY am.
I mean, the first time you meet me I’ll try to say the right thing & act like a grown-up.. but in reality, there’s always at least 50% of my brain that’s just sat there, singing the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” theme tune over & over, or wondering whether it’s acceptable to have those smiley face potato waffles for more than one meal in a day.. they do make dinner more fun though don’t they?!
Anyway, I get to be a massive kid here, voicing promos for kids & teen tele, & I absolutely love it! ENJOY
Imagine this: you’ve got a work training day coming up where you’ll sit in a boardroom & watch training videos for hours, & there won’t even be any food. How do you feel? *Bleak? Like you would rather read an instruction manual for a microwave that is no longer in production whilst having your hair done by a snotty 3 year old with sticky fingers?
Hear me lessening the pain with my corporate videos which strike the right balance between clear & informative, & warm & friendly. ENJOY!
*And if you’re a boss who organises these training days, that first paragraph was just a joke.. Just me trying to fit in with the kids in the office. Definitely didn’t mean any of it. Honest.
You know that voice.. somewhere up there.. *points to the ceiling & squints*.. that reminds you that you need bin bags.. oh, and tinfoil.. well, if you’re in a Spar shop, somewhere in the UK, then that’s me! Hear a few examples of me voicing for them, & listen out next time you pop to the shop! ENJOY
The other day I had the pleasure of hanging out with Olly Murs on my show – we talked stalkers, moonwalking & that time he worked in a jam factory! Hear a clip of it here.. ENJOY!!
Oh & not only did we talk the moonwalk, we also had a bit of a dance off – who’s moonwalk is better?! Vicky vs Olly..
Going all dancey on you with this! Wez Parkes hosts a weekly show on Soundcloud with big name DJs & you can hear me voicing all the imaging.. Here’s a bit of it to give you the vibe.. ENJOY!!
Hear me doing punchy, funny, cheeky, edgy, chatty, relatable – it’s my new commercial demo & it’s all in there! ENJOY
In December 2015 I won Presenter of the Year at the UTV Awards! I was so gutted that my flight home from holiday was delayed & I missed the do but absolutely delighted that I won! Massive thanks to Trev, Terry, Iain, Scott & Jon, everyone at The Lodge (past & present, you know who you are!), everyone that’s ever given me advice, listened to a demo or given me a shot on their radio station, & my ACE friends & family who’ve put up with me moving all over & working silly hours. This really does mean loads!
Here’s to a crackin’ year of radio in 2016!
House of Fraser have an awesome & edgy attitude to Christmas this year! They’re telling us it’s “Your Christmas, your rules!” & I’m their new in-store voice in both UK & Ireland stores.. Hear a selection of their new in-store messages here, ENJOY!!
