Audio Production Trivia

We research every book to create a unique, full-immersion

experience for audiobook lovers.

What makes Narration Station productions unique? 

     Unlike most audiobook narrators who have limited audio engineering training, we are a mother/son team with professional-grade recording equipment, years of combined experience in the entertainment industry, and multiple audiobooks under our belts.  We do more than just read a book out loud.  Lorri is a seasoned actor, vocalist, and narrator.  Matt is also an experienced actor and audio engineer.

My Narration Station partners with Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX) and Findaway Voices.  Our audiobooks are distributed to the Amazon Audible and Apple iTunes apps.
