Talking, 100%, to the students!
Coz when you didn’t get the GCSE results you expected.. or you’ve finished school & don’t know what to do next.. or where to live when you get to uni.. the LAST thing you want is some old adult grown up type giving you advice. That’s where I come in – every student’s cool big sister who’s on your level.
60 seconds of me doing all the above here. ENJOY!
So Facebook does that thing where it shows you a post from this day several years ago doesn’t it? Then asks you if you want to share it with all of your friends? Well, today it showed me a post from 6 years ago, when I played a small part in Absolute Radio winning a silver Sony Award for their station imaging.
Paul Sylvester, Absolute Radio’s Content Director, asked me, at the end of 2010, if I’d like to get onboard, along with actor Matt Berry, & voice the station imaging for their newly launched, little sister station, Absolute Radio Noughties. Of course I said yes, & to this day, all these years later, it is still one of the most fun jobs I’ve ever done.. & winning a silver Sony Award?! That just makes me feel like I’m going to fall off my chair with excitement. Glad I got to be a part of it.

Loads of fresh audio for you to get your teeth into.. Teeth? Ears?.. Well, you know what I mean!
Here’s my latest commercial reel, & whether it’s young, natural, warm, girl-next-door, credible, upbeat, cool or quirky that you need, & whether you want a light or more defined northern accent, I can do it all for you! ENJOY
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!!
