Description

Grey DeLisle (born August 24, 1973) is an American singer-songwriter, and voice actress.
Grey DeLisle was born Erin Grey Van Oosbree in Fort Ord, California, of Irish, Dutch, French, Mexican, and Hispanic descent. She had a difficult childhood; her mother was addicted to drugs. She was primarily raised by her grandmother, Eva Flores Ruth, a vocalist who performed with salsa legend Tito Puente.
DeLisle was heavily into goth bands like The Cure, but her mother, who had become a born-again Pentecostal, set a strict rule forbidding secular music. In her late teens, she started singing old gospel tunes, and entered the world of stand-up comedy on the advice of a close friend. In her comedy routine, DeLisle imitated voices very well, and was advised to take a shot at voice acting. Her first starring role came in the first English version of Crayon Shin-chan, as the voice of characters Georgie and Uma, in 1994.
Billed as a "Superstar Voice Actress" on the Anime News Network, DeLisle currently plays the leading role in at least six current animated series. Harp has called DeLisle "golden-voiced" and recognized her for her roles in The Fairly Oddparents as well as Clifford the Big Red Dog
