    Short description of my voice

    Having been raised in Scotland with English parents I have an excellent ear for regional accents. I have a soft Scottish accent which I can easily convert to a very natural RP. My voice is very pleasant to listen to and as a trained actor am especially strong at character, cartoon, animation and dramas as well as e-learning and commercials. I am also especially good at heightened RP (1930's/the queen). Whatever your requirements you will find me professional and easy to work with.

    Referees

    "Ruth was a pleasure to work with, her talent gave our TV advert something special with a positive, well delivered narration that tied everything together perfectly. She was very professional throughout and delivered the final recording in less than an hour. I'd recommend working with Ruth for any of your voiceover needs - she's fantastic!"

    Damian Livesay (Producer, 'Onit' TV ad)

    “Ruth is extremely professional and easy to work with, always providing us with a quick turn-around. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services.”

    Engine Creative

    "What a great audio team. The VO and soundtrack they produced for our animation really brought it to life. No hesitation in recommending them and hope to work with them again soon."

    Paul Rigby, Stepworks Agency, Hong Kong (writing in respect of a project completed where as well as my voice over, my partner also composed and produced the music)

    "Thanks so much for your excellent and prompt work for us on Iron. This recording will give the actors an extremely clear guide to accent as we progress rehearsals and I'm very grateful you've been able to get this to us so quickly and with such good sound quality. Very best of luck for the future."

    Matt Beresford, Director, Bold Over Theatre

    "Ruth's variety of voices are impressive. I had a script that required lots of different characters with varying voices and accents. Ruth was very good at understanding the nuances between each character and her sense of timing was exactly on point. I would certainly hire Ruth again given the opportunity."

    Rebecca Gower, Cherryduck Productions

    ‘Ruth was a pleasure to work with – she was very professional.We’d certainly recommend her and use her voice again.’

    Amber Hollman, Bliink
