Alan Burns

Warm, genuine, comfortable, conversational

Voice Description

Alan's voice is best described as "what Robert Redford would sound like if he did commercial voiceovers." He is also often described as similar to Jeff Bridges. Very warm and inviting, comfortable, genuine, and trustworthy. With years of vo and narration experience, he knows how to deliver what you need. And when appropriate, he can turn on a folksy accent to become the guy sittin' on the porch, tellin' you something you'll appreciate knowin'...much like Sam Elliot. Alan possesses one of the very few voices ever written about in Time Magazine.

Alan is able to provide quick turnaround on rush projects. He is a flexible talent able to offer many variations on a single script. He welcomes and enjoys direction.
