Elizabeth Feltes: Voice-Over Artist
Artist Name

Individual
About

I'm a Voice-Over Artist specializing in Commercials, E-Learning and Explainer Videos. I also do Voice Mail System Prompts, Children's Book Narration and Medical Training Videos.
I have a recording studio and provide editing services with my Voice-Over recordings.
My vocal style is Articulate, Clear, Confident, Genuine, Informative, Spokesperson, Persuasive, Passionate, Professional, and Upbeat.
Vocal characters that I can portray include: Announcer, Detective, Diva, Mother, Narrator, Princess, Queen, Salesperson, Spokesperson, Storyteller, and Teacher.

I was a child the first time I saw “The Little Mermaid” on the big screen at my local theater. Ariel’s voice was captivating and the story about the power of a voice made me fall in love with the show! From that moment, I knew I wanted to work in voice overs! As I grew up, I was involved in music, theater and competitive speech (earning 4 State Speech medals). I went on to earn a BA in Vocal Music Performance from Gustavus Adolphus College. In 2016, I portrayed Mary in a stage performance of “Mary Poppins.”
All of this training, including technique coaching with Nick Kaiser through Such A Voice and demo production with Bill Brooks, has prepared me for the launch of my Voice Over Business. Julie Andrews has always been a role model for me! Her poise and precision are traits that I try to emulate. Her crisp articulation and clear voice are descriptor words my clients have also used about me.
In addition to my Voice Over business, I also teach piano and voice lessons, direct my church’s Children’s Choir and serve as a Coordinator for my local Mothers of Preschoolers Group. As a singer and vocal coach, I am passionate about making sure the meaning and emotions of the words comes through in every performance and every recording.
I currently reside in Sioux Falls, SD with my husband and 3 young children, who are a constant source of inspiration and support.
