"Award-winning, warm, natural, International English voice"
Ashleigh Somerville

My natural sound is warm, genuine and friendly. I am equally at-home with sincere and engaging reads, cheerful and chatty characters, sophisticated or sultry smooth reads, clear and educational training videos, caring and compassionate public service reads, children's projects, etc. I have a naturally upbeat disposition, take direction well and truly care about the finished product.

 Training

I was originally educated in voice-overs at Pacific Radio Arts in Vancouver, BC and the National Institute of Broadcasting, in Toronto, Ontario. I began my career as a script writer for various radio stations in Vancouver and Kelowna, Canada. I also work as a singer-songwriter (www.smashlee.com) and as an actress for stage and film. My first vocal training was at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, and I've attended several Vocal Workshops at the Banff Centre for the Arts, and many independent voice-over workshops.

 Experience

I've been a professional voice-over artist for over a decade, and have recorded commercials for radio and television, corporate projects, explainer videos, phone apps, documentaries, radio imaging, game trailers, audio books, e-learning, technical scripts, as well as children's stories and educational tools. Recently, my voice has represented brands such as Old Spice, Neutrogena, BMO, World Vision, Canadian Tire, Cake Mate and many more.
