"Distinctively rich, warm and soothing"
Julia Collura

With a diverse career path as a professional pianist, Drama and Musical Theatre director, Acting and Yoga Teacher, I have a strong aural sensibility. Further, as an Italian American, I have a natural affinity for narrative and storytelling.

My voice quality is distinctively rich, warm and soothing with a late 30s to mid-50s sound. I can offer both youthful as well as spritely – smooth or seductive. Although American born, with over ten years living in the UK, my Northeast American accent has softened to ‘Mid-Atlantic’.

 Training

MA Educational Theatre, New York University and Goldsmiths College, London, UK

MM Piano Performance

As a former teacher at Arts Educational Schools, London, training young adults for Drama school auditions, I relish performing and have an innate understanding and ability of how to add nuance and musicality through voice to a piece of text. I understand well the importance of how timing and rhythm can effectively be used to draw the listener further in and ‘hook’ them into an audio-book. As a theatre director, I aim to inspire actors to in turn inspire their audience to enter ‘the world of the play’. This approach encapsulates my intent as a voiceover artist – I wish for the listener to ‘enter the world’ of the text.

 Experience

I am currently producing 2 audiobooks via ACX and am a co-presenter for Hospital Radio Plymouth.

 Specials

As a musician, I have an excellent ear for the musicality of a line of text and am especially sensitive to tempo, pace and pitch.
