MUSIC AND SINGING
Artist: Dean Wellins
Voice and On-Screen actor represented by Stars, The Agency (SF), Aperture Talent Agency (LA), and Sheppard (TX) with an extensive list of credits in commercial, narration, character, eLearning, and singing. Emiko's voice is warm, friendly, and elegant. In addition she can have plenty of sass, humor and yes, a dark side if character calls for it!
Tech Stuff: She's got a fabulous home studio, SOURCE CONNECT, and an excellent handle on the engineering (so important at this unpredictable time!). She'll get you the sound you want, per your tech specs, on time!
She has voiced for clients across the United States, Canada, Asia, Europe and Australia. She was born and raised in Hawai'i and California. She also speaks English, Indonesian/Malay, and Balinese fluently, speaks conversational Spanish, and pronounces Japanese words accurately. She has two distinct sounds in English - a warm, casual North American and friendly, sophisticated 'international.'
A select list of clients includes: United Nations Environment Programme, UCLA, Calm.com, EmberLab Games, East Bay Community Energy, Hitachi, The American Museum of Natural History, Johns Hopkins, Enterprise Bank, Travel & Leisure, Education Northwest, belimobilgue.com, and many others.
Keep an eye out for the 2021 release of Kena on PS5 where you'll hear Emiko singing. Emiko is also part of the Southeast Asian Story Trust for Disney Animation's upcoming Raya and the Last Dragon!
This sketch? An amazing gift from Dean Wellins, one of animation's most gifted directors!
Emiko worked with my team at the Calm app narrating one of our very popular sleep stories. Her professionalism, flexibility, and kindness throughout the process was exceptional, and she was able to hit the right tone, pace and overall feel on the very first read. She brought the story to life perfectly with her beautiful voice and flawless performance. Thank you so much, Emiko! We look forward to working with you again!

Our team has worked with Emiko as the narrator on a series of online professional development courses for child care providers. She has a wonderful voice, and consistently delivers the material in a clear and engaging way while capturing the meaning and nuance of the script perfectly. She delivers on time, with excellent quality audio and flawless fidelity to the script. She is also very responsive, and is simply one of the best professional voiceover artists I’ve had the pleasure of working with. I’m happy to recommend Emiko, and we look forward to working with her on many more projects in the future.

“We were looking for a distinctive voice and when we heard Emiko, we knew we had found our person. Besides the voice we wanted the tone to be conversational and not sound like a sales pitch and she exceeds our expectations every time. We could not be happier with our decision.”
