David Grier

Character Specialist, 35 + voices / characters

Voice Description

I am a tenor singer able to go from radio announcer to old Russian woman trying to sell ice cream in the park. My career in stand up comedy helped me develop a wide range of characters and voices. I have always studied and copied interesting voices and dialects sometimes like a recording of the exact voice. Obviously there is a certain range in pitch and tone that I can do best, but I am able to stretch my chords quite a bit. Being a comedy writer also helps. I have a long history in entertainment having been a bass player, comedian, radio host and cooking show host/producer. I am also a cinematographer and have shot on several documentaries in the health care field.
