"I always have said..'if you believe in what you're reading, the listener will believe in what they are hearing'. Helen Moorhouse has an amazing voice that always sounds like she really believes in what she is reading. Helen is not just a amazing voice, she is also a gifted copywriter and her ability to get to the kernel of an idea and evolve it into a full blown production has been an invaluable asset to me here at Galway Bay fm" Jon Richards Programme Director, Galway Bay FM
Since 2011, I have worked as a freelance VO artist from my home studio, producing effective copy quickly and professionally, and constantly growing my client base, and my experience.
I provide a fast turnaround, on anything from instore to phone messages, urgent calls to action to public announcement and even the occasional character voice or accent. My clients include:
Harvey Norman (radio and TV, ROI and N. Ireland), McCabes Pharmacy, Galway Bay FM (commercial vo and station imaging), 98FM, East Coast FM, Radio Nova, Classic Hits 4FM, Sunshine 1038, Limerick's Live 95FM, C103, Midlands Radio 3, Q102, LMFM, Spin SW
I'm also the instore voice in major retailers such as Tesco, Super Valu, Centra, Mace, Eurospar, Costcutter, Londis, and more...
I spent thirteen years working in the independent radio sector in Ireland, starting with Cork's 96FM and C103 where I worked as On Air Promotions Exec, Newsreader and Occasional Voiceover, before moving on to Broadcast Media Sales, later renamed UTV Radio Solutions, where I worked with seven of Ireland's leading radio stations - Beat 102-103, Cork's 96FM and C103, Dublin's Q102, FM104, Galway Bay FM, Limerick's Live 95FM and LMFM and also U105 in Belfast. I worked in creating fun and effective content in the shape of competitions and sponsorship concepts with both on air and sales teams in each individual station. I also dealt extensively with creative agencies and PR companies.
In short, I know what goes into getting something from idea to air, how to work with clients and station staff alike, and how effective the medium of radio is.
Not only can I deliver the copy, I can also create it too and have worked with radio stations over the past number of years on straight and creative copy - everything from effective hard-sell commercials, to engaging, warm and unique Christmas messages to their listeners, to poignant and hard-hitting calls to action for station fundraisers such as the Galway Bay FM Radiothon.
With vast experience in devising, organising and executing highly effective commercial radio promotions over the years, I have a knowledge of what it is a client needs.
From my work as an author and columnist I have the skill, experience and knowledge to write creative, current, sharp, observant, funny - or deadly serious, if you prefer! - effective copy. I can turn it around quickly and will work with you to achieve exactly what it is that you want to say .
