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.

Lesley Ann Fogle is a member of The Audio Engineering Society (AES), Chair of the AES Columbus section, a member of the Fort Hayes Audio Advisory Committee, and an Audible Approved Producer.

TESTIMONIALS

Without a doubt, Lesley is one of the most talented young women that I have come across in 30 years in the film and TV business. I have worked with her on numerous projects – as voice talent, sound designer, mixer, voice director and talent coordinator. Her Professionalism is stellar and she is truly a joy to work with. I am pleased to name Lesley Fogle as my “go to” audio Professional.
Nancy Ogden- Executive Producer, White Gate Films
Wonderful! I don’t think I’ll ever get beyond my state of awe while listening to Lesley. There were lines she delivered so well I nearly forgot that I’d written them. She has a gift for bringing things to life. Really, I’m just blown away by her talent.
Kimberly Krey- Author
Lesley knows her craft extremely well and is a joy with whom to work. While I am thrilled to work with Lesley for any of my set audio, post audio engineering needs or even talent coaching on microphone technique because of her craft savvy, her enthusiasm and easy-going personality make every project she’s a part of just more fun.
Chu Oparah- Producer, KODIG|MEDIA, LLC
I worked closely with Ms. Fogle during the recent production of my first novel. Not only is she incredibly professional, but she understands the delicate nature involved in bringing fictional characters to life. Ms. Fogle was open to my suggestions, and performed a flawless Canadian accent as per my request. She also has a great singing voice! I’d be honored to work with Ms. Fogle in the future, and feel confident she could master any narrative if given the opportunity.
Ashley Pullo- Author of The Ballad and The Album
I’d rather listen to the Audible version of my romantic comedy, Part-time Princess, professionally narrated by Lesley Ann Fogle than actually read it with my eyeballs (the old fashioned way.) Lesley makes my characters’ voices sparkle and she’s spot on with her comedic timing. I can’t wait to work with her again!
Pamela DuMond- Author of Part-time Princess
It was a delight working with Lesley Fogle. She did an excellent job using voices that matched the personalities of my characters, and she worked quickly and professionally. It was clear she was invested in the overall outcome of the audiobook, ensuring her work was of high quality and fit with what I had in mind.
