Joy Smithers is one of our most popular and hard working voice artists. Master of the soft sell you’ll probably recognise her voice from tvc’s or even flying high as the soothing welcome board voice for Qantas Airways.
Her easy going and professional approach to each booking makes her a client favourite. In her own words “”Ï’m low maintenance””.
Discovered by fashion designer Jenny Kee at a tender 12 years of age, Joy is a true professional on many platforms. With over 30 years experience as an actor ( Bangkok Hilton), voice artist, vocalist (Eurogliders), songwriter (1989 Aria award winner) she is equally comfortable as an MC or giving a key note address. Joy is also in possession of a huge resume of credits as a television Presenter. From children’s early learning programs to Travel and Lifestyle, News and Current Affairs Joy has covered it all many times over in her long career preferring small teams to large crews.
Since 2001 Joy has produced and directed 3 documentaries to high light the plight of Children living with HIV in South East Asia. Founder of the Gold coin HIV AIDS education program “” Shades for Aids”” launched 2009 by Education Minister Verity Firth Joy lists this as her most exciting and rewarding credit. She is an active board member for the Hope for Cambodian Children’s Foundation and plans to return to Cambodia later in the year for doco number 4.
