The Deyan Legacy
Now legendary in the audiobook industry, Deyan Audio was founded in 1990 by Bob and Debra Deyan. The company works with the largest publishers and has handled all aspects of production including casting and directing for thousands of audiobooks. Deyan Audio has to its credit multiple Grammy, Audie, Earphone and Listen Up Awards.
In early 2013, Bob Deyan was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). While Bob's spirit still drives Deyan Audio, the Deyan Institute fulfills his longtime dream and preserves the ideals and vision of his legendary work in audio production.
The Institute provides the training, tools and discipline to enrich and nurture artists who are committed to the development of the art form and themselves.
