Vicki Liston’s fascination with creating, capturing, and enhancing voice recordings has followed her throughout her life. It all started with the big boxy cassette tape recorder she got for her fifth birthday and the first thrill of hitting the red ‘record’ button.
Since then, she’s gone on to accumulate impressive credits and awards as a voice artist. Some of her clients include national companies, such as AT&T, Pizza Hut, H&R Block, Chevron, Delta Dental, Hardee’s, Carl’s Jr, Zespri Kiwifruit, the LPGA Golf Association, and Wired Magazine as well as regional and small businesses, start-ups, and non-profits.
Vicki has also expanded her creative range to include writing and producing content for popular websites and blogs, national publications, and creates ‘edu-tainment’ tutorials where she covers a broad spectrum of do-it-yourself and home improvement subjects. Most notably, her award-winning ‘On The Fly…DIY’, a video series of easy-to-follow, unique project tutorials for the casual DIYer has generated over a million and a half views on YouTube, and also aired on Amazon Prime. The series has resulted in multiple highlights of Vicki as a national expert in the field. She’s been featured in such prominent outlets as The New York Times, the Today Show, MSN, Forbes, Family Handyman Magazine, Apartment Therapy, House Beautiful, The Washington Post, Best Life, Realtor.com, SimpleMost, DontWasteYourMoney, Google’s Tangi platform, Hometalk, and more. ‘On the Fly…DIY’ allows her to engage in her passion for philanthropy where a portion of the proceeds earned from the show are donated to no-kill animal shelters and rescue organizations.
Vicki’s combined creative efforts have garnered her several distinguished awards. When the prestigious Communicator Award winners were recently announced by the Academy of Interactive and Virtual Arts (AIVA), she won in the highest category, nabbing an Award of Excellence for her voice over and video production work as well as an Award of Distinction for her voice over work. She won the coveted Telly Award for writing, voicing, filming and producing a marketing video for a St. Louis-based 501c3 non-profit. She was named a W3 Award Gold Winner in the Web Series category for writing, voicing, filming, and producing On The Fly…DIY. Vicki was also nominated for several awards to include 2021 and 2022 One Voice Award nominations in the Best VO in E-Learning category, a National Woman of Influence Award nomination in their Emerging Business category, and a SOVAS Voice Arts Award nomination in the Best E-Learning Demo category.
To accommodate the increased demand for her voice services, in 2019 Vicki founded Smart Mouth Voice Overs, LLC (SMVO), a tongue-in-cheek reference to her Mensa membership and the spectrum of ‘intelligent to sassy’ vocal qualities she creates. Of note, SMVO is a proud certified Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB), an approved government contract provider, and delivers audio recording and production services for commercials, e-learning applications, corporate narration, telephony applications, new media narration, training videos, app narration, and much more. The company operates a broadcast-level recording studio with state-of-the-art equipment and remote recording capabilities, with a mission to always exceed clients’ expectations in both quality and time frame. When requested, Vicki also voices off-site where she almost always has the most exciting experiences, like the time she found herself recording in the exact studio previously used by Sir Paul McCartney…while just one floor below and at the same time, the amazing Lady Gaga was laying down tracks!
While voice acting is her first love and primary focus, Vicki is also an accomplished singer and actress who performs on-camera as a host, in principal roles, and as support cast. She’s appeared on-screen for Anheuser-Busch, Food Network’s Restaurant: Impossible, in William H. Macy’s ‘The Layover’, 20th Century Studios ‘The Empty Man’, the award-winning ‘The Ghost Who Walks’ currently on Netflix, and a plethora of commercials. She also has a recurring role as a host on Hometalk TV, which highlights many of ‘On The Fly…DIY’s projects but in a more ‘live’ format. Vicki’s creative talents have also taken her to the illustrious stage of Carnegie Hall where her classically trained, four-octave coloratura soprano voice twice resonated within the famous music house. Her great love of the genre also extends into opera parody, which recently inspired a rework of a Puccini aria into an original comedic piece about the Great Toilet Paper Rush of 2020.
Vicki was educated at the UMKC Conservatory of Music, where she graduated with a BA in Music with a concentration in audio engineering. While living overseas, she also earned a Master’s degree in Management at American Military University (part of the American Public University System). She learned the art of voice over from Susan Berkley (the voice of Citibank and AT&T) and Moneen Daley (founder of Mo’Vibe Voice Overs) in New York City, Marc Cashman (Clio award and three-time ‘Best Voices of the Year’ winner) in Los Angeles, and actively trains and coaches with multi-award-winning J. Michael Collins in Washington DC.
Vicki is represented by The Sheppard Agency (Austin, TX), Big Mouth Talent (Chicago, IL), Azalea Agency (St. Louis, MO), Talent Unlimited (Kansas City, MO), and Impressive Talent Agency (Urbana, MD).
