Art Carlson

Baritone, welcoming, character specialist, relaxed

Voice Description

My voice has been described as "warm and authoritative" for organizational presentations and live events. My range is fairly extensive, developed over the course of recording 8 audio books (so far) for Zondervan Publishing and 2 for Iambik.com. The Iambik audiobooks required extensive characterizations; one in a sci-fi genre, the other a murder mystery.

Friends describe what they call "The Voice" as 'welcoming, inviting and relaxed.'

My Voice Experience

I've been recording voice overs in one form or another since beginning my broadcast career in 1975. First radio and then more than 30-years in television, radio and the corporate world.
