Best Female Voice Award winner Rachel Robinson, a national voice talent, has had several forward steps and ‘breaks’ throughout her career, including a fortuitous opportunity to work with Paul Reiser on his film “The Thing About My Folks”. Rachel has also performed voice over work for the infamous television program “Celebrity Death Match” and most recently, voiced six commercial spots for The Coca-Cola Company’s “Make Every Drop Count” campaign.
A favorite of Los Angeles talent agencies, Rachel not only thrives on her accolades and variety of work acquired but on voice acting itself. In a recent interview, Rachel shared her passion for voice acting and what keeps her going in this highly competitive yet fulfilling field of work, “I really love it; anything you want to do to earn a living that you also enjoy takes your constant attention and focus, which, if I love something, doesn't feel like work at all. Perseverance and patience have to go with talent and timing, so I've tried to balance all of that. Besides, it's the most fun I've had for anything I've gotten paid for, and that is priceless.”
In an acceptance speech, Rachel expressed gratitude to Nancy Wolfson of Braintracks Audio for her rapier-like honesty and crystal-clear method of communication under whose vocal coaching she came farther in four months than experiences with several other coaches, recommending Ms. Wolfson to anyone from novices through to aspiring amateurs and established working professionals. Additionally, Rachel acknowledged several voice teachers, directors and working actors, including but not limited to Bob Bergen, Ginny McSwain, Dolores Diehl and Larry Moss.
Rachel intimated “I'm also grateful to anyone who was generous enough with their time and knowledge to share it with me, either paid or not; and I am always more than pleased to pay it forward by sharing information with anyone who actually thinks my advice and acumen are valuable.”
Voices.com and Voicey Awards co-founder, Stephanie Ciccarelli says, “Rachel Robinson’s versatility and vocal prowess has rewarded her with top honors from judges in the voice over industry. It is an honor to congratulate Rachel on her Voicey Award for Best Female Voice.”
Now that she has won an International award for Best Female Voice, Rachel has committed to remaining in top form outside as well as inside the voice over booth, honing her creative skills while researching fresh ideas for her voice over business. Rachel also looks forward to more animation voice over work in features, series and gaming as well as the ongoing pursuit of commercial and narration projects, which have been very kind to her thus far.
