On Adjoa Andoh, Golden Voice Narrator
Celebrating the 2022 Golden Voices
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Golden Voice narrators are the stars of the narrating universe. Today, host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten are celebrating Adjoa Andoh, a 2022 Golden Voice narrator, renowned actor on stage and screen, and narrator of more than 150 audiobooks with versatile performances and a mastery of accents. For listeners of fantasy, historical fiction, nonfiction, mysteries, literary fiction, and classics, Adjoa provides a distinctive, resonant voice, smoothly jumping into each character. Fans of Netflix’s Bridgerton series will also recognize Adjoa as the scene-stealing Lady Danbury. Her presence is felt through each audiobook’s characters, whether in Nnedi Okorafor’s breathtaking Remote Control or the lyrical Matrix by Lauren Groff. Stay tuned in July for an interview with Adjoa on her years of work bringing audiobooks to life for listeners.
