Deb Balka doesn’t sound like anyone else, yet contains multitudes. Her “natural” voice grabs ears immediately, and her character voices are immediately attention-getting and often hilarious. I’ve recorded slightly more than umpteen sessions with Debra, and each one has been unique, great fun and praised by the client. Highly, highly recommended!
