Oh Muffy!

It’s been 16 years and I still get a kick out of the Muffy character I play on Arthur! The Muff (as I like to call her!) is confident and sassy and goes after what she wants. What a great model for young gals. Okay, fine, she’s a bit spoiled and snotty at times, but nobody’s perfect :) We had our first record today out of 20 for this upcoming season. It’s great to be back in action! Click below to hear some Muffy snippets from seasons past!

*new* demo: Erica Wood

Hello there friends and voice lovas! I have a spicy demo for you this evening performed by the lovely Erica Wood. I am so feeling her deep and dark villainess in the first spot. She has quite the polished mischievous laugh! I think her youthful character pieces are totally adorable and she has a nice wide-eyed approach to her reads. It was a pleasure working with you Ms.Wood and I think it’s fair to say you now have one fine voice demo to your name!

*New* demo: Andrew Cromwell

Good evening fine blog readers! I’m silly excited to introduce Andrew Cromwell to you all. This dude is the real deal when it comes to character play. Andrew’s versatility is amazing. With ease he flits from the strong and masculine type with his full bodied voice and then in the next breath he’s an old timer muttering about “kids these days” and then poof, he transforms into Elmo’s twin brother! I admire Andrew’s ability to free style and flow in his characters. I’m very proud of the dedication and focus he’s had over the last couple of months working towards his demo recording. Congrats to you Andrew for knocking it out of the booth (yep, that’s a right, I swapped park for booth). Pow!
