Welcome to Jazzelle Stories Podcast which has been rebranded since the first series.
In the fall of 2021, it became clear to me that the podcast name I had been using for my first series was not a good descriptor of what I was creating. Through a brainstorm of word play, the name evolved to Jazzelle Stories. Since I am a storyteller and I’m producing audio drama stories, the name best describing my productions became obvious to be Jazzelle Stories.
I'm excited to soon release my new series, "Spellbound" and its first episode. The journey into the "Spellbound" series will begin during Valentines Day week. The first episode begins in intense drama of a story of a girl who is looking for love in all the wrong places. The content is for adults only due to some of the graphic scenes portrayed. The final draft is being edited.
For “Spellbound’ I casted fifteen distinct voice over actors. I’m very pleased in presenting each of their voices in the episodes. All the voice over actors portray their character exceptionally well. Each voice over actor will be accredited to their character on each episode. Also many of the main characters will be featured with their bio and photo on this website.
I'd like to introduce to you one of the voice over actors in the first episode:
"Benjamin Nguyen is a third year student studying Psychology and Theater Arts at University of California, Santa Cruz. Born and raised in the Bay Area, he was often involved in his Vietnamese church performances. As a classically trained singer, Ben then participated in choirs and school musical productions. Soon his interest in performance expanded, so he is majoring in Theater Arts to gain more experience in the performing arts. He looks forward to performing and attending shows again after the pandemic. Some of his favorite musicals include RENT and Dear Evan Hansen."
I'm very grateful for Benjamin as he introduced me to a platform which made it easy for me to record the voice overs. He has been very professional in his communication with me and with his voice over delivery. Plus he is the voice over for three different characters in the series! I hope that many other avenues of performing open up for him.
My new series "Spellbound" is very different than the first series. In the first series, "Crown of Life", I was the narrator and the voice over for all the characters in the whole series! In “Spellbound" we have sixteen distinct voice over actors, including myself.
It has been a very rewarding experience working with each of the voice over actors and I look forward to introducing all of them.
