Authentic. Real. Indigenous.

ABOUT

ABOUT

Hadih! I'm Denise Halfyard. I am a  proud Wet'suwet'en, Tsimshian, Gitxsan Voice Actor from the Laksilyu clan, which means Small Frog in Wet'suwet'en.

I am a co-owner of Halfyard Productions. I am also the coordinator for the Tears to Hope Society, a non-profit organization that supports the families of our Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). I am also the founder and CEO of The Frog Radio, a station devoted to Indigenous music of all genres from across Turtle Island, 24/7.

 

I feel it's so important that we share our Indigenous culture and raise awareness of social issues with those around us, as it teaches those willing to listen and learn. 

I'm a professional voice actor specializing in commercial, E-Learning and non-fiction audiobooks. My voice has been described as soothing with a friendly, informative style that is perfectly suited to long form projects. I've voiced many corporate E-Learning modules for Indigenous and non-Indigenous North American and European clients. My full resume can be downloaded HERE

 

I'd love to do a free sample for you. Have a listen to my demos then email me direct and we can discuss your project. I have flexible rates and fast turnaround from our broadcast quality studio.

All My Relations,

Denise

An image of a recording studio. From left to right shows a plush black leather couch. Directly behind the couch is a stool, a guitar and a microphone set up in front of a window. To the right is a rack holding multiple guitars. In front of that is a u-shaped black desk with 2 computer screens that show an open session in ProTools.
