Female Political Voice
Check out Heather’s recent political projects!
Are you in need of a female voiceover for a political ad?
2022 was a very busy political season and one of the costliest election cycles in U.S. history. On Television, Radio, YouTube, and Facebook – just about everywhere we were, we saw and heard ads from Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. There were ads not only for Federal Senate and House races but many more, state legislative elections, municipal elections, tax levies, school board races, mayoral races, city council, infrastructure initiatives, votes on marijuana legalization, Abortion, and many, many more issues and 2024 is heating up to look like a wild ride for sure!
Political ads have been a huge force in our election process for quite some time. Print was king for hundreds of years, but now political content is being created for television, radio, websites, YouTube, Facebook Ads, Instagram, Twitter, etc. Nothing is really new except the sheer volume! 2024 is nearly here, and everyone will be eating, breathing, and sleeping political ads. For those who create this content, you need reliable, talented, professional voiceover talent who are ready to fulfill your voiceover needs lightning FAST! Chances are you will continue to be inundated with so much of this work that you will need a political voice at your beck and call. Heather is such a voice. Her rich alto lends itself to being the knowledgeable, heartfelt authority people will trust and BELIEVE.
Heather has been honored to have voiced ads for such high-profile elections all the way from National Senate races to tax levies in small towns.
Here in the United States, politics are very polarized, to put it mildly, and U.S. citizens have so many messages that they will have to sort through. Therefore, it is imperative that the right voice is telling your political story. Your voice over talent must speak directly to the viewer and/or listener and be able to cut through all the other chatter. The viewer/listener needs to be able to not only hear the voice but feel the voice. They need to believe that the political ad is telling them what they need or want to hear. Whether the voter wants to feel safe and protected or alarmed and protective, the voting public now insists on authenticity.
It’s important that the right voice connects with your viewers and listeners. Perhaps your project needs a warm, wholesome mother voice to let people know that your candidate is trustworthy (positive ads). They want to be comforted and to know that things are good. In the alternative, you may need a voice that is giving a warning about a particular candidate or a proposed law (negative ad). Heather has voiced for projects of both types and understands these need to be handled in very different ways.
Whether it is an issue about safety or gun rights, abortion rights or taxation without representation, a candidate that they really, really like or a candidate that they really, really don’t like, the voice of the project needs to resonate with that voter so that they know they are being heard. Authenticity leads to votes, and isn’t this why political ads are made?
It takes someone who is skilled in reading political copy. Heather gets the undertones and subtext of what’s really being said. More than ever, we realize that every vote matters. Therefore, it’s more important than ever to make sure that the voice of your candidate or your institution suits the project perfectly.
Women had a big say in the 2022 election cycle, and it looks like 2024 will be no different. Gone are the days of the big, authoritative male voice telling people how to vote. People want to hear from someone just like them. Heather is 100% authentic as a passionate, knowledgeable, warm, suburban white female.
No matter how one feels, no matter what the political affiliation, there has never been a more exciting time to be involved and pay attention to politics. For some people, it’s a very scary time, and others feel back on track. Whatever the case, the next political season will be one for the history books. For the content creators, it will be fast and furious!
Heather records her projects from her professional studio. She records on a Sennheiser MKH416 microphone, uses an Audient iD14 as her interface/preamp, and uses Adobe Audition as her recording software. The audio quality is top-notch, and because it is recorded in her home studio, the turnaround is supersonic fast. Consider Heather to be a part of your team.
