About Andi Arndt:
The cool, calm & clear choice for your story’s voice.
Andi naturally came into VO / Narration after years of extensive work in both theatre and public radio. She taught acting and Voice for the Stage at James Madison University for 12 years and has been an actor, producer, director and vocal coach for full productions of live theatre including drama, comedy, musicals and staged readings. To strengthen her teaching skills, she took the month-long Intensive at Shakespeare & Company in the Berkshires, where she learned about Kristin Linklater’s method of voice study. Andi then trained to teach Linklater’s method for several years, creating a solid foundation of technique that has served her narration work – and ever-increasing list of happy clients – incredibly well.
With rare acumen, Andi intuitively understands the creative process of the writer, and has earned a trusted reputation for taking excellent care of every project she lends her voice to. To date, she has narrated over 100 books in contemporary fiction, non-fiction (legal, medical, geopolitical, bio/memoir), mystery/thriller, contemporary romance, young adult and children’s. She was also nominated for an Audie Award for Short Story Fiction in 2014, and was a co-narrator for Mary Kubica’s THE GOOD GIRL, recognized with a Voice Arts Award nomination in 2015. Her recordings for children and teens have earned her glowing reviews in School Library Journal.
In her e-learning work, Andi knows exactly how to utilize her teaching background to not only engage the learner but help them enjoy a course that they may have been dreading.
Andi is busy delivering her calm, cool and clear sound from her broadcast quality home studio, based in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Through her production company, Lyric Audiobooks LLC, which includes a team of editors and proofers, she delivers fully produced, finished audio and often travels to other studios to produce music-related audiobooks, as well.
