Her voice has brought to life many well-known characters not only in box office animated films but also in video games. Erin Grey Van Oosbree, better known as Grey DeLisle, was born on August 24, 1973, in Fort Ord, California. From an early age, Grey was raised by her grandmother Eva Flores Ruth, a renowned salsa performer who had performed with the legendary Tito Puente, as her mother had certain drug problems. Grey's mother was a singer, and her father was a truck driver who had a passion for country music. After a few years of living together, Grey's parents separated. At a very young age, according to her family's claims, Grey wrote her first song at the age of 5. After receiving treatment for drug addiction and alcoholism, Grey's mother found faith and joined the Pentecostal church, followers of Protestantism. After a ban on secular music in their home, Grey found solace at her grandmother's house. As a teenager, she left home and headed to Los Angeles. Grey recalls that a close friend introduced her to the world of voice acting. He was so impressed by Grey's voice that he suggested she try her luck at auditions, and in 1994, under the pseudonym Grey DeLisle, she voiced the characters Georgie and Umi in the English version of the comedy anime "Crayon Shin-chan".

In addition to her work in animation, Grey has also lent her voice to video games.
