New York, NY (October TK, 2023)Sound Lounge, renowned artist-owned and operated audio post-production studio in New York City, has announced Dawn Mjoen as its new casting director. With a career spanning over two decades in commercial production and casting, Mjoen brings unparalleled expertise and creativity to the forefront of the team.

“Dawn is a respected and seasoned casting director,” said Marshall Grupp, COO and partner at Sound Lounge. “For its 25 years in existence, Sound Lounge has always recognized the importance of offering a casting director to all our clients whose only interest is delivering the best talent for television and radio campaigns.”

Mjoen boasts an extensive background and has worked at several boutique and large studios, booking talent on acclaimed projects with AT&T, Mr. Peanut, Starry Lemon Lime and Revlon, among others. Her broad range extends to serving as an adjunct professor at Pace University, where she shared her knowledge of commercial voiceovers and the industry while teaching students the techniques of voice acting, microphone usage, and recording.

Over the past seven years, Mjoen has thrived as an independent contractor under Dawn Mjoen Productions, directing, recording, and booking talent for a multitude of platforms, including commercials, podcasts, video games, and animation. The loyalty of her following and the diversity of her clientele stand as a testament to the legacy she’s crafted—a legacy she now extends to a new chapter at Sound Lounge.

I look forward to collaborating with the incredibly talented team at Sound Lounge and contributing to projects that captivate audiences and leave a lasting impact.”

Mjoen will oversee Sound Lounge’s casting division, with plans to expand into animation, dramas and podcasts. In her inaugural casting assignment at Sound Lounge, she filled several key voiceover parts for “Courage to Act: Rescue in Denmark,” a new exhibition about the extraordinary rescue of Denmark’s Jewish population in 1943, which opened at New York’s Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust.
