All About Juliette

Juliette Gray is a professional British voiceover artist located in Los Angeles.

Originally from London, and having lived in Los Angeles for more than half her life, Juliette is a professional Anglo-American voiceover artist located in Los Angeles, who works in neutral British English, Transatlantic American English and a number of accents & dialects. A World VO artist, ideally suited to the Global-International market, it should come as no surprise that a high percentage of her clients span the globe.

Before moving to Los Angeles, Juliette spent twelve years in the travel industry, located in the Mayfair section of Central London.  Her time was divided between South African Airways, El Al, VIP Travel and Marc Allan Travel. This afforded her the opportunity to travel extensively.  During this time, she developed an innate ability to view the world from a visceral multi-national perspective.  Juliette continues to draw on that same narrative for her Voiceover work.

When Juliette first moved to Los Angeles she worked for two major film studios, Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox.  This gave her insight into the structure of the film and television industry and its marketing systems.

Simultaneously, the entrepreneur in her, operated a concierge service for the health and wellness industry.

Juliette offers voice over services consisting of a variety of VO genres including commercials, various types of narration from E-Learning, Corporate, The arts, human rights, and Telephony. Having been around classical music and jazz for many years, since her marriage to clarinetist Gary Gray, she has her own ongoing musical project of spoken word to the music of the Great American Songbook – with her trio of Gary Gray on saxophone, and Bill Cunliffe on piano.

Her accent range goes from British Neutral English (from North West London,) A light RP,  Mid-Atlantic and Transatlantic English, plus numerous foreign accents and dialects.

Because of the continual growth of the global market Juliette often fills the need for a VO artist where the specs request the following.

“A VO ARTIST THAT YOU CANNOT RELLY TELL WHERE THEY ARE FROM.  SOMEONE BORN IN ONE PLACE AND HAS LIVED IN ANOTHER AND/OR HAS MOVED AROUND THE WORLD A LOT.”

Juliette’s has a lot of happy clients both in the United States, UK and abroad. Because, she conveys an essence of the countries she has visited and lived in the world, she is often a “go to” choice for both International and local projects.

Juliette’s voice is warm, luxurious and refined. Her delivery is honest, believable, and authentic, and can also be humorous with a touch of irony and pizzazz.

Juliette has recorded numerous projects, in a BBC International style, for SouthSouth News – a United Nations news service that focuses on issues affecting the developing world, and she is passionate about using her unique voice and delivery to impart information on the issues that seriously affect the world we live in.

You can hear Juliette’s voice narrating for luxury products, financial services, technology, travel & leisure, international relations/human rights, documentary film, corporate meetings, explainer videos, e-learning and telephony.

Juliette works from her pro studio in Encino, California, a suburb of Los Angeles. Her studio has been configured by George Whitham, who is the “go to” person for many VO talent and is also on the staff at Edge Studios in New York.  Her work is broadcast ready and she also offers a variety of long distance modalities if the client wants to direct projects through the air waves.

Juliette believes her relationship with the clients is a collaboration. She offers her clients a second to none service both pre and post production.  Her primary goal is to always satisfy and “make a difference” in bringing to life each and every project.
