Jef, Leeson, voice actor, producer/engineer, singer/songwriter Jef, Leeson, voice actor, producer/engineer, singer/songwriter

Hi, I'm Jef.

Drawn to acting & performing in bands during school years, by my early 20s I was making stages & studios my career. As a musician & singer, work took me around half of the world & helped me establish a recording studio & boutique record label. About the time I began engineering audio for remote clients, voice work, too, entered my life.

These days when not tracking dialogue, engineering for games, toons, films & audio dramas, being a session producer/musician, or creating my own releases, I still get to perform live music every now & then, mostly out around Ontario.

Contact me if you'd like to discuss a gig, or take a look around here for more details. THANK YOU for stopping by.

    As a result of being a professional performer in a variety of Ontario-based bands, doing recording session work came naturally.
