Audio Drama

I love this one. Narrative Podcast/Audio Drama. A quirky, darkly comic, Southwestern-flavored paranormal anthology called Uncanny County. In this episode, ‘Host in the Machine,’ I was Connie Ambrose, “a local news giant and legend around these parts,” who really “threw herself into her work.”

About

Jones is an award-winning voice actor with a broadcast quality home studio and a love of talking to herself in a booth for long stretches of time. Her background is in theatre and music, and her voice has been heard in audiobooks as well as in documentaries, commercials, tours, corporate industrials and a variety of explainers and eLearning programs. She’s spent a good part of her career in new work and development, working with writers, editors and copywriters. She was happily deemed by one generous reviewer as, “…an indispensable actor of exceptional power, nuance & range.” (It was Brad Rosenstein, of the SF Bay Guardian. And though it was many years ago, he has her eternal gratitude.) She has a BFA in Acting from Ithaca College.

 

She and her husband, noted horror writer John C. Foster, and their rescue dog Coraline—a Dutch Shepherd/Pitbull mix, live in the wilds of Brooklyn, in an apartment filled-to-bursting, floor-to-ceiling, corner-to-absolute-corner with books.

Linda Jones is an NYC actor with a “cracked wit” and a passion for words and language. She narrates books, both fiction and non, and has also worked in new plays, old plays, film, tv and voice over. With a decade of narration, and nearly two in new plays and development—including dozens of premieres (NYC, West Coast, US & World)—she loves nothing more than to dig into new work by exceptional writers. She spent several years as a lead artist with Crowded Fire, an award-winning, nationally recognized San Francisco theatre company, where she was happily named by one reviewer as, “…an indispensable actor of exceptional power, nuance and range.” (Brad Rosenstein, SF Bay Guardian).

Award-winning theatre work includes Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing and Charles Mee’s Trojan Women: A Love Story. And generous critics have called her “nuanced,” (EDGE NYC), “deep” (NY Cool), “fierce” (OnOffOff), “sharp and hilarious” (New Theatre Corps), “ever-versatile” (Backstage West), “excellent” (SF Bay Guardian), “magical” (Contra Costa Times), “inspired, touching and comic” (SF Chronicle), “mesmerizing” (Sacramento News & Review), “completely focused and faultless… hilarious” (Sacramento Press-Tribune), “[an actor with] a quality of inner light – rare, radiant and indefinable” (Ithaca Journal).

Born and bred in Concord, Massachusetts (she learned to swim in Walden Pond!), her escapades have taken her across the country, with years spent in upstate NY (she is honored to hold a BFA in Acting from Ithaca College), Chicago and San Francisco. It’s been nearly twenty years since she hopped in her little convertible, waved good-bye to California, and drove cross-country, Johnny Cash’s ‘Ring of Fire’ blaring from the speakers as she crossed the Nevada desert. And, though she looks back fondly – she’s glad to be a New Yorker.

She is a proud member of SAG-AFTRA and Actors Equity. In addition to performing, she also coaches acting, voice, speech, dialects and voice over for actors in NYC. (More on that, here.)

Other details? She prefers her whisky neat and her coffee black. She loves dive bars and diners, thunderstorms and snow days. And road trips. And though she tried being a blonde for a few years, she discovered she actually has more fun as a brunette. She has been known to run marathons – three, and almost four – and she’s looking forward to running that fourth one soon. She and her husband, noted horror writer John C. Foster, and their rescue dog Coraline—a Dutch Shepherd/Pitbull mix, live in an apartment filled-to-bursting, floor-to-ceiling, corner-to-absolute-corner with books.
