Narrator, actress, TV host, artist, and writer, Rachel Perry has spent her life learning and working in arts and entertainment.
With a background in Fine Arts from York University in Toronto, Canada, Rachel has studied improv at the infamous Second City in Chicago, UCB, and many acting schools in New York and Los Angeles. Originally self-taught as an audiobook narrator and producer, she has fallen in love with the Masterclass series at Deyan studios in California where she has also attended P.J. Ochlan’s audiobook intensive.
Beginning her on-camera and voice over career as a VJ on Muchmusic in Canada, she has since hosted shows and interviewed celebrities worldwide, been known as ‘The Voice of VH1’, performed comedy in front of live studio audiences, acted in TV shows and commercials and worked in radio.

I record from my home based studio in Los Angeles with Pro-Tools software using a gorgeous Neumann TLM-103 condenser microphone in a sound treated room. I also have a Rode NT1A in my arsenal if you prefer. I am also able to record at a location of your choice and can provide full production from narration to editing and mastering.
I will do my absolute best to bring your book to life! I strive to understand the material and intimately connect with the listener to keep them engaged and always entertained.
SEE MY HANDY WORK
I started narrating audiobooks as a way to stay busy between acting auditions but it quickly became my passion. I love being able to play so many different kinds of characters to bring a story to life. I also love reading informational material in a way that makes it engaging.
what else do you do?
Though I would spend all day and night making audiobooks if I could, occasionally I take time off to do other things, like listen to audiobooks! I love spending time with family, helping coach my son’s baseball and basketball games, walking my two yorkies Clark & Alfredo, going to the movies, binging on tv shows, gardening and cooking anything gluten-free! I’m a sucker for pretty dresses and hats. I hope to one day learn to make my own pasta.
