Allyson Briggs: Versatile and accomplished voice over artist by day, songbird and bandleader of 1940s-style jazz band, Fleur Seule, by night.
Allyson was enamoured with music from a young age. After a highly musical childhood, her passion for the power of the human voice brought her to New York University where she trained for a career in voice over.
Her vocal versatility has cultivated a diverse resume that features a vast array of voice over clients and projects. To date, perhaps the project that has best showcased Allyson’s range has been the aptly titled 16-character audiobook, “The Chameleon” by Merrick Rosenberg.
After graduating from Tisch School of the Arts in NYU, Allyson’s polished vocal abilities made it clear she had found her calling in her chosen career path – a hybrid of voice over work and music.
Though her natural voice over talent garnered rave reviews and validated her decision to work in the arts, finding and organizing steady work proved to be a demanding process.
While Allyson’s affinity for voice over organically attracted a few clients, she knew in order to go full time she had to take her career to the next level.
Since joining Voices in 2013, Allyson has been able to become a full time voice over artist. She auditions consistently and has booked over 130 jobs, working with many internationally recognized brands, including American Airlines, Samsung, Tropicana, and GE.
Allyson’s warm, intelligent sound has made her a highly sought after choice for phone greetings, technological scripts, and tutorial and explainer videos. One such project of Allyson’s, an explainer video booked through Voices for Zurich-based health and tech company dacadoo, has been viewed more than 552,000 times!
Allyson’s remarkable linguistic prowess has helped her to create a wide range of character voices. She can easily switch between voices for characters young or old, male or female, and can record in English, French, German, and Spanish. Recently, Allyson created several unique voices for the award-winning multi-character iPad game, “Match & Learn the Greek Gods” by Pepita Demas.
Whether she’s singing in seven languages with her band, Fleur Seule, or lending her voice to any number of voice over projects, Allyson’s unique talent is sure to impress.
For Allyson, the ease and speed of communication on the Voices platform has allowed her to stay on track with project deadlines and further strengthen the relationship with her valued clients, benefits that will allow her to continue to find success.
