Who is Darla of Darla's Voice?
My voice is a versatile instrument that I use with skill. Mine is a voice filled with intelligence and warmth. My sound can range from mature to youthful female, but I can also produce convincing male timbres. Narrative can be presented in a conversational, down to earth, matter-of-fact manner and also display a broad emotional range across a large repertoire of characters (female, male, young, old and "creature"). All of that and still convey a sense of wonder when telling the story.
With experience of 34+ years as a Speech-Language Pathologist, more than 20 years as a stage & film actor and over 20 years as a trained singer with knowledge and insight into the mechanics of the voice and speech, I bring a wealth of experience to bear to develop character voices (male, female, mature, extremely elderly, creepy, bright exotic, etc) with an impressive emotional range.
Currently, I am one of many voice actors who narrate podcasts for AIRS-LA (an audio internet service for individuals with visual challenges) in addition to narrating audio books.
