Voice Over

I’m a professional audiobook narrator and voice actor working from my studio in Sheffield. I work consistently narrating mainly fiction books, usually contemporary drama, thrillers, mysteries and historical fiction and regularly on corporate projects. I also work often on radio sketch comedy and drama projects.

I have an assured, no-nonsense, trustworthy natural voice; mature, believable, sincere and gentle – naturally lightly northern accented. I’m a versatile character actor with a range of accents, able to deliver intensely dramatic readings as well as excellent comic timing. My voice ranges from late 20’s into 50’s and I can provide character voices across all ages.

“What I most enjoyed about this tale was the narration itself. Melanie Crawley does a fine job of endowing each figure of the story with their own voice and style, and her narration keeps the tale alive. Well done.”
Review by George Ellington of The Malvern Mystery
“Melanie is an excellent voice over artist. She can adapt her voice to different age and accent groups. She delivers professional narrative voices, but she is also a voice actor. Her performance has such an emotion and warmth you can’t avoid being totally blown away. Highly recommend her!”

‘Melanie’s narration was excellent, this is the first time I have listened to her narration and certainly won’t be the last time. Melanie is able to adapt her language, expressions and accents to suit all of the characters in the book perfectly…Superb.’  Ellie S. Audible review of Missing Gretyl.
