When you are prepared to record your demo, that is something myself and my production team can assist you with! I will provide you with extensive homework to prepare for and make sure that your demo exhibits the best of your creative talents. We spend no less than 75 hours in post production on our demos and it shows in the quality of work that is produced.
Anyway, I shall try my best to take your lessons literally to my heart, and perhaps I shall see you at the open mic nights or while wandering the streets of the world!

"Your demo just got me my first job!" - Ryan A.
"I absolutely love my demo! It's comforting for a young actor like myself to know that I have a professionally competitive demo that shows that I'm here to play in the big leagues! As an actor, your demo is often your first impression, I can be confident that my first impression is a great one and I owe that to Elley Ray."
Jonathan J. Sconza
"I was so pleased with the process and outcome of making both my commercial and animation demo with Elley Ray. It's a valuable investment in your career and something I'd recommend to anyone working or perusing a career in the industry. Five golden stars."
"The laughter, the ahhhs and the compliments keep pouring in for my animation demo produced by Elley-Ray! She takes you where no voice has gone before and she ensures that it's light years ahead of the rest!"
Joanne Young Evans
"She helped me get 22 voices compacted in to 2 minutes on the nose. It's gotten me gigs on its own - even in corporate. It always leaves a HELLA strong impression; it's fast, energetic, and so well edited. Do it."
"Elley Ray created a safe space where I felt liberated to try anything and everything! Her depth and sense of play brought out characters, sounds, and ideas that I had no idea I was even capable of making!
It was a truly freeing and creative collaboration."
With Elley's wildly charming and effective teaching we crafted a demo that unleashes my zany, farty side in the best ways! It has every crash, smash, and blam, with a few guffaws and chortles thrown in, that I was looking for. Lurv it and lurv her!
"I had done a few cartoons in the past, but unlike commercials, it's very hard to track down elements of cartoons to assemble a reel. Also it's hard to show your full range on a demo, unless you have the body of work (that people like Elley-Ray has to choose from)... Elley-Ray is the queen of performing, writing and directing cartoons. She not only provided me with scripts, but was able to pull voices out of me that i had no idea i possessed! I have not only had so many compliments on how well my animation demo was produced, but it alone booked me more cartoon work than i had ever done. If you want a career in cartoons, or commercials or narration, books on tape, or any other field of voice work...run, don't walk to Elley-Ray for coaching and production of reels. This lady knows her stuff, and she shares it freely with a lot of heart, humor, patience, wisdom and authenticity"
Elley-Ray is amazing! She really got me out of shell and made me realize that I can do more than what I already thought I could do! Working with Elley is like working with your Best Friend. You get lots of laughs with some constructive criticism, in the end you get a quality product that you will be proud to showcase! My Demo sounds awesome and I can't wait to share it with the world!

Elley kicks ass! My demo is magical and brilliant thanks to your amazing touch. Thank you Elley-Ray you’re fabulous!
“I’m absolutely thrilled with the Stripped Teaser Demo that Elley directed and produced for me. It packs a powerful punch, as it captures the listener’s attention instantly and holds it there, displaying a great range of versatile characters, rhythms, and pacing all in a quick 30 second format! I would highly recommend any serious voice-artist to have this cutting edge demo as part of their toolkit.”
Thanks to Elley-Ray’s expert coaching that provides the necessary techniques to stand out in this industry, she also gives you the inspiration and self confidence to walk away with a demo you can be proud of. I knew instantly that I had a demo worth representation. I haven't regretted her work on my demos as well as being my voice acting coach ever since.
Thanks to Elley's direction and Scott's technical talent, my narration demo has received roaring reviews to the point I'm being booked for narration projects by clients just listening to my demo and not having to do a self-tape. She took the time to go over copy choosing the best ones suited to my voice ensuring that I was able to show a vocal range. In the studio she directed me and brought out my authentic self. And her ingredient of a wild sense of humor made the task a joyful one.
"Demos are a tool to help you book work... and I continually book off the one's Elley's made for me."
"I adore my animation demo. From the lively coaching sessions leading up to recording day, to actually being in front of the microphone, Elley was an amazing teacher, mentor, and support every step of the way. She made the environment a safe and fun place to explore, and was full of infectious enthusiasm, encouragement and knowledge. I am thrilled with the end result - thank you Elley!"
"Love it!! Thanks sooooooo ooooooo oooooo much again for the amazing direction and support, so awesome working with you!!!"
"Working with Elley-Ray on my demo was probably the most fun I have ever had in a sound booth. She really made the process awesome and enjoyable and what I came out with was a fantastic showcase of my abilities."
"After three hours of doing wacky voices in a hot booth, and a few weeks of post, I had a demo that was truly excellent and unique! I couldn’t recommend Elley-Ray enough! Five Stars!"
"Working with Elley-Ray is a magical experience, like no other!! Her off the wall, wacky approach to demo recording puts the actor into a goofy, playful, relaxed frame of mind leaving space to explore and create all sorts of unique characters. I would and DO recommend Elley Ray to everyone and anyone who is interested in voice-over. She is INCREDIBLE!!"
"Elley-Ray’s work in producing my Animation Demo was phenomenal as her direction made it stand out from all others. Her creative process to create my own characters and script had really allowed me to embody the essence of the voice work completely. She stretched me when I thought I could not stretch no more and brought out the "voices" in me which I never knew I carried. Even during the recording, she revved me up, and at the same time, helped to "center" me, to express my "best" self ... and because Elley-Ray is such an energetic LIGHT herself, this same positive energy shone through me and into my voice acting. I LOVE my DEMO, Elley-Ray - Thank you so much!!!"
Marcia D. Bennett
"Elley-Ray is creative, inspiring and the hardest working person in the biz. She is the best of the best! Her knowledge and ability to direct in addition to her kindness and compassion creates a positive environment where you can make self-discovery and hone your voice acting skills. During our training sessions I learned how to develop a character, find my voice and capture an audience through storytelling. Elley’s fun approach to script analysis, voice and audition technique has prepared me for the magical and wonderful world of animation and has given me the tools to tackle every job as a pro. Thanks to Elley I have a fabulous animation demo that I love and is very proud of. My demo has received a ton of outstanding reviews and has helped me book work. Elley is incredible and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in exploring their playful vocal range and who wants a fun career in cartoons, commercials or any other field of voice work."

“My demo got me the gig so thank you!!!!!!”
"A famous racecar driver once said his favorite time racing was in Kart Racing before he became a professional. He said it was the time he was most free and had the most fun. I did not appreciate this until I worked with Elley-Ray. Since creating my demo the best times I have had in an audio booth is when I visit Elley-Ray to do voice-work. Not that working isn’t fun, but there is magic that Elley-Ray brings to the studio that I don’t feel anyone will ever be able to replicate."
