¡TIG TORRES HA VUELTO!
LETHAL LIT is back for season 2!
Can't wait to hear what mysterious web Tig
and her pals get themselves tangled in
...and IF THEY CAN GET BACK OUT!
Conjuring some UPSIDE DOWN MAGIC
Had an absolute blast working on
book 6 from one of my favorite
Scholastic series ever!
In the booth with FOSSE/ VERDON
Just a little ADR...and All That Jazz!
Co-narrating this creepy new title from
Shannon Kirk was...THRILLING!
Doing some ADR for GEMINI MAN
Looking at Will Smith while doing some voiceover is hardly work!
NEW SARAH DESSEN BOOK!
Psyched to be back in the booth with more of Sarah's work.
The rest of MY story is that her novel, LOCK AND KEY was the very first audiobook I ever narrated!
Recorded some dark moments with my audiobook mom, Mary Stewart Masterson in this dramatic new work from D.J. Palmer.
2019 ODYSSEY WINNER!
“Rebecca Soler authentically captures Sadie’s stutter and angry, tortured emotions..."
ADDED ADR FOR THIS NEW NETFLIX PROJECT
I had a blast supporting this fantastic cast with some loop group love!
2019 AUDIE WINNER!
"Soler excels as the tortured, stuttering Sadie..."
BACK IN THE ADR STUDIO
Working in an ADR loopgroup for this painfully funny show
is the ONLY kind of divorce I want to be part of!
2018 EARPHONES AWARD FOR SADIE!
"Summers’s writing is compelling, and
Soler and Bittner keep listeners glued to this grim account."
THIS JOB WAS SUPREME!
As New York City’s first Hispanic federal judge, the third woman and
first Hispanic Justice of the United States Supreme Court,
Sonia Sotomayor is an inspiration to so many.
Narrating the story of her life was an absolute honor.
Back in the studio for some ADR looping.
Another day of corruption, deception and BILLIONS!
Narrated the third (and final) book of the amazing CARAVAL series.
I absolutely loved working on this series and
am psyched for its release this May!
BACK IN UNIFORM FOR ADR.
Looping for this show is one of my favorite jobs
and not just because Donnie Wahlberg's from my hometown
...although that doesn't hurt!!
NARRATED PATRICIA WALSH CHADWICK'S HAUNTING MEMOIR.
Dwelling in the cult-like community of
The Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary was heart-breaking.
And I only had to do it for a few days!
ADR LOOPING FOR DETOUR
I love working on this hilarious show
and never knowing where the journey will take us all!
"Soler's range allows her to flow seamlessly between the story's unfolding mystery and its romance. Soler captures the mixed emotions of the curious yet doubting half-Latina protagonist. Soler's delivery highlights the poetic aspects of this story and downplays any predictably in Miranda's search for herself and her loved ones."
EARPHONES AWARD WINNER FOR SEAFIRE!
"Rebecca Soler narrates with a driving force that captures the tone of the first in a female pirate series."
BOOK CON 2018!
What an amazing day at Bookcon 2018 for the Soler/Graves household. Not only did Christopher have a huge line of people wanting signed copies of SINNER, but then both of us performed on a panel for Macmillan Audio for the Podcast/Narration of SADIE by Courtney Summers.
The Macmillan production had over 40 voice actors lending their talents to a magnificent book.
And if you want a signed copy of SINNER, I think I have an in with the author...
LEGENDARY BY STEPHANIE GARBER
Stoked for day 1 of LEGENDARY by Stephanie Garber.
It is sooooo good, guys. I have been waiting for this sequel since I finished the last words of CARAVAL and it doesn't disappoint.
Also...I know something you don't know!
RENEGADES LAUNCH EVENT
Once again celebrating the magical Marissa Meyer for her latest epic adventure, RENEGADES.
Especially thrilled to be helping launch her event in my hometown!
#Jointherenegades #LoveThatDirtyWater #BostonYou’reMyHome
BEHIND THE SCENES OF NIMONA
I had so much fun recording the title role in NIMONA by Noelle Stevenson.
Every single monster roar is me, people (just pitched down in editing)! There is no cooler role to get to be than a kickass shape-shifter.
If you haven't read the graphic novel RUN to get a copy and listen to the vocal stylings of Jonathan Davis, Marc Thompson, January LaVoy, Natalie Gold, Peter Bradbury, and David Pittu.
HEARTLESS BY MARISSA MEYER
This week I recorded Marissa's next thrilling novel, where we get to see how the Queen of Hearts became a head-offing, rose-painting villain.
We also meet the Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat and other fun ALICE IN WONDERLAND alum – Lunartics will not be disappointed!
Guys, my job really is the best.
2016 ODYSSEY & AUDIE AWARDS WINNER!
"David de Vries, MacLeod Andrews, and Rebecca Soler take listeners from Germany to Pennsylvania to California with distinctive performances that give a sense of place and life to characters struggling with the rise of the Nazi party, the Great Depression, and then WWII itself. A riveting exploration of that which destroys and that which heals."
NEW CARTOON FOR WGBH
This year is already starting with a bang! I just found out I will be voicing a character in WGBH's newest cartoon project.
WGBH has optioned the rights to PINKALICIOUS, the New York Times bestselling children’s book series by Victoria Kann, and will develop
an animated television series for 3- to 8-year-olds.
Curious George executive producer Dorothea Gillim will oversee the production. The book series, which debuted in 2006 and now includes
nearly 40 titles, is published by HarperCollins.
And of course all things lead back to my hometown, Boston.
I grew up watching WGBH, so I could not be more excited!
STAR WARS AUDIOBOOK REVIEW
"...Rebecca Soler did a fantastic job too. She performed all of the female dialog in the audiobook and was the primary for the first part."
HUNTINGTON THEATRE: YERMA REHEARSALS
Blessed to be reunited with the magical Melinda Lopez
as she adapt Lorca's, YERMA.
So excited to get to play with Christina Pumariega and Marianna Basham again.
If I could only be in plays with those two women
for the rest of my life, I'd be a happy gal!
Just finished recording BRUTALITY, the third installment of Ingrid Thoft's detective series set in my hometown of Boston.
It's a wicked-good summer read filled with twists and turns. Grab an iced cold Dunkies, plop down on Nantasket Beach and pop in the earbuds for a fun ride.
Don't forget the SPF!
BACK AT THE HUNTINGTON FOR THE BREAKING GROUND FESTIVAL
Psyched to be reunited with M. Bevin O'Gara (my director from Becoming Cuba) to work on NON-PLAYER CHARACTER by Walt McGough.
It's a dark comedy inspired by #gamergate and
highlights the dark side of the gaming community.

FA-LA-LA-LA-LA, I'M SELLING PHARMA
I am back in FRONT of the camera again this week for INVEGA.
There is nothing better than a pre-XMAS commercial booking to make Santa Soler even more generous to all she loves.

OH MY GAWD, IT'S BECKY SOLAH FROM BOSTON
Before you ask, no you cannot call me Becky...unless you have seen me in my red Sally Jessy Raphael glasses and the Catholic School uniform!
LOYALTY, the debut novel by Ingrid Thoft, was a real treat.
Nothing is more fun than narrating a book set in your hometown.
THE BUTCHER @ THE THEATRE PROJECT
I love working on new plays – especially poignant, smart works
that are well written and thought provoking.
Combine that with a cool cast and you have a good night at the theatre.
Come support Gwydion Suilebhan's, THE BUTCHER.
PAID TO EAT ICE CREAM?!
SKINNY COW needed an improvising, ice cream
sandwich-eating machine this week.
And they got one.
Yes, I ate 40 sandwiches in one day, while chillaxing on a chaise lounge
in some shee-shee at home clothes (as my gram used to call them).
Don’t hate, people...It's my job.
