Tracy-Ann is a well known much sought after voice over artiste.

 

Combining class, sophistication and sex appeal with unassailable comedy chops and bags of sass, Tracy-Ann is a true force to be reckoned with a very familiar TV face already, and with lots more to come (Friday Night Dinner, Monroe, etc), she's covered a lot of bases –as well as being a massively popular stage and radio presence, too!

 

As if this weren't enough, she writes –for radio, for newspapers, for stage...vocally, her character skills are second to none, she brings inventiveness & fizz to the party, but she can also deliver the right amount of good sense & gravitas, where needed. Her 'straight' reads are a joy, she has the rare gift of making you hear just how arched her brow is... Voice credits include: Sainsburys, Florette, Virgin Atlantic, Sunday Times, heaps more, plus countless documentaries.

 

She has also narrated a number of audio books most recently winning an Earphones Award for The Dragonfly Pool by Eva Ibbotson.
