    Short description of my voice

    warm, bubbly, clear, young, humorous, versatile, child-like, animated

    Referees

    Zehra has worked with me on a number of occasions, in musicals and straight theatre. She has a terrific range and has played roles ranging from Indian children to American mothers, from contemporary Australian to RP. Her vocal versatility makes her completely convincing across age, ethnicity, class and period. Her extremely professional attitude and intelligent approach to the text means that she makes and sustains strong, clear choices.

    Lucy Skilbeck - West End Director

    Zehra is an exceptional singer, actress and performer.

    She has recorded demos for me in the past singing the leading role in "Mr Christmas" and "The Return Of The Soldier".

    She has performed in a review of my songs called "Build Me Bridge" at the Bridewell Theatre and Battersea Barge.

    I highly recommend Zehra in any capacity that involves the arts

    Charles Miller - British Composer

    Thank you for all your effort! You have an amazing voice. The client is over the moon!

    'Merck' for Mothers

    Zehra was a pleasure to work with. If you are looking for someone who is extremely positive and dedicated to their work, Zehra should be considered for your next job. She was very detailed with her audition and even dubbed the reading over our project piece as opposed to just reading it without the soundtrack. These elements as well as her professionalism really sold me on her talent. Thanks Zehra and good luck!

    From Christy Colburn

    We were very much impressed by the work Zehra did on the job. Portraying two almost identical characters as the twins is pretty hard but Zehra nailed the job! We will be happy to work with this professional again. Thank you, Zehra!

    Natalya Chumak

    Elephant Video Games

    I have worked with Zehra on a number of audio projects over the past few years. I have always found her to be extremely professional, well prepared and very personable. She takes direction well, and is adept at quickly getting into character and giving a wholly believable performance.

    The stories we have recorded have required a variety of accents, characters and styles. Whatever the piece, Zehra's characterisations are always authentic.

    Zehra is a versatile, collaborative actor, who is a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend her for your audio project.

    Ian Skillicorn - Producer of www.thestoryplayer.com

    "Heron Fleet is on the verge of publication and as a result I've only just turned to hearing the final form of the podcast voiced by Zehra. It was excellent and made the book sound so good I wondered if I'd actually written it all. Zehra's improvisation of the song and the tone she used in the incantation bit were inspired." Paul Beatty - Author of published novel, 'Heron Fleet'

    "Zehra's narration for Nightingale was profoundly moving. She managed to capture not just the voices but the essence of the major characters throughout the book. I was incredibly nervous to listen to this work narrated by the voice of another as these characters had lived in my head for many years by this time. I was afraid that I would listen to someone else's interpretation of my words and feel that they had missed what I was trying to convey in the story. Zehra brought my story to life in every way. I could not recommend her narrative skills high enough. Thank you for bringing Nightingale to life."

    Andrea Bramhall - Author of 'Nightingale'
