My Voice Experience

The best way to describe Craig's voice, it just has that Classic sound. Rich, bold, smooth..."The way a voice was meant to sound." As one producer said: It's the voice as of a Velvet Hammer!

Do you need a voice that resonates?

A voice that lends credibility and believability to your projects?

A voice that sounds great whether it be HIGH IMPACT! or just needs the the voice of a concerned, loving father?

A voice that could be your best friend giving solid advice?

Craig's Voice gives authority to your next commercial, industrial video, web page, radio tags and more.

When recently asked about his business philosophy Craig responded;

"My business philosophy is give the customer respect and service and you will receive back more than you give out.

I know this because I was a business owner for several years with 40 employees and hundreds of clients."

What others have said about Craig's voice:

"Everytime Craig steps into the booth, he brings something new to the table. I think he even surprises himself at times."

"Craig's Voice is like that of the sound of a Velvet Hammer."

"You have a great commercial, TV, radio, and promo voice, reminds me of what a Supreme Court Judge would sound like." -Dick Collins

"I thought your read on the Revolutionary War was VERY well done. Reminded me quite a bit of a Rod Serling-esque delivery, now he WAS a great storyteller!" - Scott P.

Craig came through as a true professional. He stayed with us until the project was just the way we wanted it to sound. The best part? All at no extra charge. Thanks Craig you sounded great!"

My Training

Voice Over Development and Experience

Craig's interest in using his voice began in high school when he experienced a class on radio broadcasting. It wasn't until later that he started speaking publicly as a Speech Coach.. First it was just small audiences but as his skills improved he began speaking to audiences of 5 to 6 thousand.

It wasn't until the mid 90's when Craig, by chance, had the opportunity to narrate a video for the Steel Founders Association of America. He had been shooting the film for the video and was asked to be the voice.

Craig Koepke has over twenty five years of speech training and is continually looking and analyzing for ways to improve.

"Always strive to keep the intensity you had when you first began. One will always be fresh and energetic that way."

Education and Training

Ongoing voice over coaching by Sound Advice (Big House Casting) in Chicago, Illinois

Mastering the Art of Voice Over Techniques classes.
Dan Balesteros

As voice over actors we should embrace constructive criticism. We will never get better or flourish if everyone says nothing or only positive things about our work.

We need critiquing like flowers need rain. Without rain and the occasional cloudy day the flowers would wilt, become colorless and eventually fade away.

We learn technique, style and different ways to approach our work that we love by receiving constructive criticism. Most importantly we become better at Voice Over."
