Lesley Ann Fogle studied vocal performance at University of Toledo and Ohio State in the early 1990’s. Wanting to fully understand sound, she went on to learn the technical side of audio engineering. After a decade in Chicago working as an audio engineer mainly on jingles and post-production commercials, Lesley found herself frequently on the other side of the microphone. Upon landing mneumonic work for Nintendo/Leo Burnett, Lesley joined SAG and went freelance on the audio side (as Hear No Evil Sound in 2004) while voicing national commercials, industrials, and documentary work. Upon moving back to Columbus Ohio, she took on audiobook narration as a means of long-format vocal practice and soon found it opened a world of active participation in characterization, accent work, cold reading, endurance, and technique.
When not narrating, sound-designing in post, field mixing at a film shoot, Lesley writes music with her husband under the name After-Death Plan. The duo began recording together in Chicago in the 1990’s as part of her musical conglomerate Mal Vu, a rotating cast of musicians weaving dark tales. After-Death Plan’s 2017 album “Literature” highlights music and lyrics inspired by classic literature. Their 2nd album, Psycho Social Sexual, released Jan 15, 2019. The duo shot three music videos to accompany their latest release. They were awarded two GCAC grants for this endeavor and to expand the use of the visual medium for their third album.
