After years bopping around winning slam poetry competitions and presenting children’s radio programmes, Leah Marks realised that voice was all she cared about and directed her intense, relentless personality at that. Leah eventually reached the point where, as a jobbing voiceover for big fancy names including Guylian and Longleat Safari Park, she was also performing in BBC Radio 4 dramas and reading the news on BBC Radio Manchester. Leah’s voice has also popped up on the Huffington Post, the Guardian website, a variety of Guardian podcasts, the BBC, ITV and been broadcast to members of the European Parliament. Leah has recently discovered a knack for producing with audio company Sparklab, and directing and production management with the award winning but inaccurately titled audio drama company Naked Productions. She also co-runs The Voiceover Social Podcast, the first voiceover industry specific podcast in the UK. This podcast offers a wealth of information and interviews on the voice over industry for all members of the community, from new comers to seasoned pros. Leah also co-runs VO Social North, the first voiceover industry specific social in the North of England.
