NYC-based Voiceover Artist Debbie Irwin specializes in narrating scientific projects using a tone that is both captivating and easily understood by a variety of audiences. With a voice that sounds like it was made to accompany medical animations, it’s no surprise that Debbie has become known as “the voice of Big Pharma” over the years. From delivering tongue-twisting terminology with easygoing accuracy to dialing in the ideal combination of pacing and pauses while reading scripts aloud, Debbie has perfected the art form of using her vocal talents to provide scientific projects with attention-grabbing yet soothing audio tracks.
As demonstrated in the video clip to the right, Debbie can also alter her voice to mirror a variety of accents or dialects. With over fifteen years of experience in the industry alongside having lived all over the world, Debbie strives to incorporate a multidisciplinary background into her work. While Debbie’s main area of expertise is narrating medical animations, she also has experience working with major international museum audio tours, documentaries, commercials, corporate narrations, and live awards shows.
Outside of Debbie’s successful track record of success in meeting project goal specifications, she is also known for being an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only is she supremely professional and easy to direct, but her enthusiastically charming personality causes clients to actively seek her project participation time and time again. Audio Specialist at the speech synthesis company CereProc, Francesca Shaw, elaborates:
“When you spend 30 hours working with someone, it’s safe to say you’re going to get to know them! How they work, how they respond to direction, how easy they are to get along with, how talented they are. Debbie threw herself into this project completely; she was keen to learn about the technological processes involved in making a text-to-speech voice, and it was clear that she cared as much about her relationship with myself and the team as she cared about the recording work itself.”
Some of Debbie’s select clients include: AARP, AstraZeneca, Barclays, Baxter, Bloomberg, Coke, eBay, GE, IBM, Jennifer Furniture (formerly Jennifer Convertibles), Johns Hopkins University, HSBC, Humana, McDonalds, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Novartis, Oracle, Pandora, Revlon (Revlon or Sephora), Sephora, The Guggenheim Museum, The Smithsonian, SPDR Financial, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The NY Botanical Garden, and WebMD.
