To provide a premium service
We pair premium opportunities with premium voice talent. If you want something said tantalizingly, twistingly, terrifically, timeously or even pterodactyl-like, we have the voice talent to do it! Powered by a talented team of women headed up by Sarah Woodward, we are here to make our artists' voices heard and for our clients to find the voice(s) they have in their heads.
Sarah joined Tongue Twisters in August 2016, after nearly nine years working as an academic at Wits University in Johannesburg. She has an MA in Voice (Theatrical) and has written about, taught and directed in voice-centric circles for most of her career. She developed the voice curriculum at Wits from 2008 to 2016, from the first year voice classes to the final year research projects. She has lectured courses in radio drama, developing small radio projects with her students, using principles of sonic spaces and binaural play, and has taught as a voice lecturer, dialect coach and voice and movement teacher. Tongue Twisters has offered her a new challenge, a way to discover the practical applications of the voice in a commercial setting.
Maxime Eatwell joined Tongue Twisters in 2017, and since then has proved herself to be indispensable. As a booker, admin guru and artist liaison, Max brightens the office with her gregarious personality and warmth.
With her background in finance and her natural people skills, Max is known for her quick thinking and is the go-to person when the going gets tough. She has assisted many a client at the last minute and is brilliant at pulling jobs together.

Robyn trained as a theatre actress & drama teacher. Working in film & television for 11 years, as well as having had experience as a project manager & administration, Robyn was the perfect addition to Tongue Twisters. In 2014 she joined the company as a booker & overall right hand “man” to Raph. After a brief hiatus in 2016, Robyn returned to Tongue Twisters, in a new role, as book keeper, in January 2017. With her eye for detail and fantastic organisation skills, Robyn is an integral part of the Tongue Twisters team.
Tongue Twisters was started by the late Raph Kossew in 2011, himself a seasoned voice over artist. Graduating with a BA in Theatre and Performance from UCT in 2001, Raph kept up with the voice work while following a career as a casting director. After backpacking around the world, he decided to come home and bridge the gap between his two loves, voice overs and working with actors, which led to Tongue Twisters Voice Agency. Raph passed away in August 2018 but his legacy lives on.
