Charles Graudins

From Gen Y to the Voice of God

Voice Description

Warm and deep for narrations, sexy and fun for commercials, mature and professional for presentations, and everything else every other voice talent writes here. My difference? I'm a trained voice *actor* with well over 100 different deliveries, accents, intonations, characters, celebrity impersonations, and more. Hiring me is like hiring an entire stable of voice talents. It's actually quite disturbing to my family and friends. Don't let me near a drive-thru or intercom.
