"Accents and Dialects" - with Andi Gibson

"Accents and Dialects" - with Andi Gibson


Thursday, August 15th 7pm-10pm


Most thespians are pretty decent with certain accents and dialects. Many times, only a slight readjustment can stand in the way of an actor booking a project, or being passed up. Make sure that doesn't happen to you. Andi's workout consists of fine tuning, tonal, and vocal adjustments. As a trained singer and vocal chameleon, her ear has been tuned to listen for inconsistency, and "drop outs" as actors perform. This is a favorite workout among actors of every genre!

*Andi enjoys helping fellow actors fine tune their accents and dialects so they can sound more authentic and feel more confident using using them to expand their range, and book more work!

Growing up in the diverse communities of Los Angeles, Andi Gibson always had an affinity for accents, her musician’s ear allowing her to discern and mimic them easily. Andi now books a quarter of her voiceover work in accents for clients.

On tour with Bob Dylan in utero, Andi Gibson was destined for a life in the arts.  With director Kenny Ortega, her acting career began at age 2 in music videos for Fleetwood Mac, and Olivia Newton John.  At 7, Andi’s singing career began, recording for Lorimar and Warner Brothers, she felt at home in the booth. The years brought more performing, finding Andi on stage behind Barbra Streisand, Roberta Flack and Chanté Moore.  Gibson sang at The House of Blues, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, and The Staples Center.  Andi then performed in a doo-wop quartet at Universal Studios Japan.  

She returned home, originating the role of Sister Mary Hope in the World Premiere of Sister Act: The Musical.  After 2 contracts at Universal Studios Hollywood, Andi toured Central America and the Caribbean as mezzo in a quintet aboard Celebrity Cruises.  Back on land, Gibson co-founded, managed and sang soprano for a cappella sextet, "Simply Put".  Recording their album reminded Andi how much she missed the booth.

Next, Andi got cast in "Minnie’s Fly Girls" at Disney, as well as "Citizens of Buena Vista Street", as an improv actor.  After 5 years there, she closed the chapter on her park career, to focus on staying in her first home-the recording booth.  

Singing on Guitar Hero for Playstation 2 was Andi's first foray into video games, but voiceover added Impa to her credits for Nintendo’s Zelda:  Breath of the Wild as well as Sinking City, Secret of Mana and Shaq Fu:  A Legend Reborn.  Andi started VO with commercials and voiced for Target, LG, AT&T, Kraft, Skechers and Febreze.  She also voices characters in a web series, and can be heard singing in multiple upcoming animated series for Warner Brothers, Dreamworks, Fox, as well as Airbnb, Febreze, Boeing, Hallmark, PBS, and various videogames and animated shows.
