Jeff Woodman

Jeff Woodman is familiar to Recorded Books listeners of all ages.

Jeff is a nine-time Audie Award finalist and a 2007 winner. His 400+ audiobooks have also earned him a People magazine Top Five citation and 20 Golden Earphones Awards. 

A graduate of SUNY’s conservatory training program, he taught in the theater department of Sarah Lawrence College for six years before launching an acting career with the New York Heritage Theater. Since then, he has played roles in regional theaters, Off-Broadway productions, and television. As he developed an enduring fondness for classic drama, he mastered a wide range of European and American regional accents.

At the Recorded Books studios, he always strives to add the right shades of personality to his characterizations. For example, in the nonfiction classic My Old Man and the Sea, a dual narration with veteran narrator George Guidall, Woodman perfectly captures both the bravery and the humor of a young man who makes a perilous 14,000-mile voyage with his father in a tiny sailboat.

When he was chosen to narrate Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Jeff faced a challenging project. John Berendt’s bestselling novel is a Gothic tale of eccentric characters living in Savannah, yet it is also a work of nonfiction—the story of a landmark legal case. He uses his considerable talents to bring wealthy socialites and charming con men to life, but he also maintains a light tone of detachment as he relates the proceedings of a trial that mirrors the richness of life in this fascinating Southern city.

Through Jeff’s expert narration, each audiobook is an unforgettable listening experience.
