25+ years of experience in musical composition, vocal technique, sound design, mix, and commercial finish.
Lesley 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 of mainly post-production work (jingles, broadcast TV, commercial finish), Lesley landed a gig as the voice of Nintendo. She joined SAG and went freelance on the audio side (as Hear No Evil Sound in 2004) to voice national commercials, industrials, and documentary work. After moving back to Ohio for family matters, she adapted to a market where audio is often hyphened to video. She slowly rebuilt her client base by showcasing the importance of dedicated sound polish to the final picture. On the voice side, Lesley took on long-format audiobook narration which opened a world of active participation in characterization, accent work, cold reading, endurance, and technique.
When not narrating, field mixing at a film shoot, or sound-designing in post, 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 to expand the use of the visual medium. Their 3rd album, though stalled by the pandemic, is in the works.
Lesley Ann Fogle is a member of The Audio Engineering Society (AES), Chair of the AES Columbus section, on the AES Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, the Fort Hayes Audio Advisory Group, on several technical advisory groups, an Audible Approved Producer, and the Internship Coordinator for the Capital University Music Technology program.
