We're always listening for new voices!

We looking to supplement our terrific Cloud Studio network of Voices with more talented storytellers from all walks of life, who are also adept and experienced voice-over artists.

Applicants must be able to record and edit professional-quality audio from home.

If you'd like to audition for the SpokenLayer Cloud Studio,
please record 3-5 minutes of one of the following pieces, in the environment and with the equipment you typically use to record and deliver audio. Start your audition by saying your name.

  If none of the above pieces speaks to you, you may upload 3-5 minutes of yourself reading a different piece of first-person, narrative-driven nonfiction. Please cite title, author, and publication at the start of your read so we can find the piece when we review your submission. No paywalls or self-written content please.

Once your audio is ready, fill in the brief form, and upload the final edited file.  (Also, please accept the MailChimp notice if you receive one.) That’s it!

At SpokenLayer, we’re looking for talented storytellers who can deliver a great listener experience. Here are a few tips to consider when prepping your audition for us:

  • Everyone deserves to have their own name pronounced correctly! Please look up any words or names you personally find unfamiliar so you’re confident when you record. 

  • Think podcaster, not broadcaster. Imagine you’re speaking to an audience of one - think of someone you like to chat with and deliver your audition to them. 

  • Respect your listener’s time and attention. Presume your audience (your friend) is both bright and busy - keep things moving at a good pace. 

We’re looking forward to hearing you!
