SoundStory was conceived under the premise that every person has a unique story to be told. Be it a story of great success, overcoming challenges or just one of simple pleasures – what better gift can you give than forever documenting the story of the lives of loved ones? This is a gift for the interviewee, but also for all of the family members who get to hear this professional interview crafted to tell the story from the only relevant viewpoint: theirs.
SoundStory is a lot of things. It is an experience. It is a gift. It is an audio and video heirloom that can be passed on through generations. It is an easily accessible bridge to a life story – in the words and voice of the first person. It is the gift that keeps on giving and will live on beyond us. That is SoundStory.
How It Works
As you book your SoundStory interview, you'll fill out a short questionnaire to give your interviewer some background information about the interview subject and to help guide the interview process. At the date/time of your choosing, you or your family members will be interviewed by a media professional for 60-90 minutes. This is a totally conversational interview guided by the answers in your registration questionnaire, but free to cover any topic you'd like! Our interviewers will utilize their years of experience to help guide the conversation to ensure the end result is a gift that keeps on giving. This unique model provides a great experience in the moment, but also memories, audio and video that will live on much longer. That is SoundStory.

“My dad is an amazing and humble man. He’s done so much in his 86 years on this planet, but he would never toot his own horn. He is so truly special to us and I am so grateful to have this recording. When my kids are ready, I can’t wait to share this with them. This is something that I truly will cherish forever. We so appreciate you.”
