2020 Audiofile Earphones Award for NEVERTHELESS WE PERSISTED: ME TOO 2019 Voice Arts Award (SOVAS) for NEVERTHELESS WE PERSISTED: ME TOO - Anthology (writer and narrator) Best Narration for Biography. 2020 Audie Award Nomination for NEVERTHELESS WE PERSISTED: ME TOO ROMANCE: Nectar by Lily Prior - Audible “Narrator Carol Schneider's performance brings out the farcical quality of this whimsical story about Ramona, an Italian servant girl with an intoxicating scent. Schneider's evocative reading, with her lively, diverse voices, highlights the power of Ramona's elixir, which turns grown men into buffoons and, consequently, fills women with contempt for the foolish girl. Schneider portrays the 19-year-old Ramona as a high-pitched, ditzy simpleton. With a knowing tone, she conveys the frequent sexual innuendo and irony as Ramona clambers up the social ladder. Schneider's spirited reading consistently engages the listener with even the most absurd entanglements and conveys the poignancy of this tale of love and desire.” M.F. © AudioFile Magazine, Portland, Maine Tempting by Hope Tarr -- Audiorealms “Sensitive, lyrical and unfailingly on point, Carol Schneider is the voice of audiobooks…” -Hope Tarr, Award Winning Author of TEMPTING & MEN OF ROXBURY HOUSE SERIES THRILLER-ROMANCE: Power by Debra Webb – Tantor Audio “The benefit of having a relatively low female voice is that both male and female characters can be performed without sounding forced or fake. Schneider doesn’t fall into the trap of trying to lower pitch too much when male characters are speaking. Dan, for example, clearly sounds lower than Jess, and he has a southern accent. I was able to sense his frustration with Jess, and with himself. Schneider has the ability to really make the listener believe in what Jess and Dan are feeling. Both have their reasons for keeping the other at a distance but, when they give in and allow themselves to be together, Schneider’s pacing and pitch allow us to see just how special their relationship could be, if only they’d let it.” -AudioGals Impulse by Debra Webb – Tantor Audio “I was very impressed with the consistency of Schneider’s narration… It really feels like Schneider has found her way into the minds of Webb’s characters, and it was a treat to hear her do it. Schneider’s voice is low for a woman. This helps her deliver some stellar male voices. I was hooked from the very beginning of the book, and I can’t wait to see where she’ll take Jess, Dan, and the rest of the Birmingham PD. -AudioGals MEMOIR: My Father Came From Italy by Maria Coletta McLean - Audible “Narrator Carol Schneider brings the beautiful, rustic scenery to life with her gentle delivery and her animated portrayals of Bob, Guido and the rest of the cast are bound to keep listeners’ fingers away from the pause button.” -Editorial Review on Audible Young Artist Award recipient at Interlochen Arts Academy and a Paulette Goddard Remarque Scholar at NYU.
