Ben Birmingham

Rich, smooth, powerful baritone.

Voice Description

My speaking voice has consistently been praised as being a rich, deep, powerful, and articulate one that can range from soothing to menacing. Apart from my normal speaking voice, I have quite the knack for accents, and I possess a versatile and wacky array of vocal impressions and outlandish characters, from fictional to non-fictional to made up on the spot.

My Voice Experience

Three words: SHAKESPEAREAN TRAINED ACTOR. Although I do not have experience as a voice over artist as of yet, I have been a stage performer for most of my life, and I have a paramount adoration for Shakespeare's work. The extensive training that I have received within the Shakespearean realm to develop and use my voice in the best ways that I can is a skill set that will give me a uniquely commanding vocal presence in this industry.

My Training

I am currently enrolled in my final semester as a Theatre Major at CalState University Northridge. I have performed in dozens of plays throughout my life, and thanks to a heavy involvement with The Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum Theatre, I especially specialize in the art of Shakespearean performance.

My Studio Equipment

I have a full working, soundproof audio booth with a Blue Yeti Microphone and a laptop to record, edit, and submit audio tracks.
