LOS ANGELES, USA // Jill Kershaw is a globally recognized audio creative with a keen ear for what resonates with consumers and the ability to shape a brand's success through the medium of sound. Jill only likes to do things the right way, and for a pitch-perfect branding studio to exist, Jill felt she had to start her own.
As the former Head of Radio and Audio Content at Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Jill watched as the old guard of voicecasting directors were replaced by digital platforms where the nuanced techniques of casting, directing, and producing the Soul of a brand became a commodity -not a craft. Jill founded Sound & Fury to preserve the art of finding the perfect voice to connect with its audience. Jill believes how a story is told, is as important as what it has to say. And to do that really well, it requires incredibly talented and experienced humans, not algorithms.
During her 25-year career, she has amassed hardware from every prestigious advertising award show, including a few Titanium Cannes Lions. Additionally, Sound & Fury has won seven Voice Arts Awards. Jill is a highly sought-after producer, director, educator, and speaker on the power of branded audio serving on panels for the Radio Advertising Bureau, London International Creative LIAisons, That's Voiceover, and Anime Expo. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Society of Voice Arts and Sciences and has been a member of the Radio Mercury Awards Advisory Council since 2017.
Outside the studio, Jill is a certified yoga and meditation instructor, devoting much of her time to developing volunteer opportunities for advertising and entertainment professionals. In 2018, she founded VO Cares, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization using the art of voice acting to create positive change in the lives of others.
