Douglas Aikin

Character Specialist, Multiple Dialects

Voice Description

My voice can be used in a myriad of projects. I range from simple, blue-collar working class for a gruff and rugged delivery-to appeal to the every man, to a snobbish, upper-class, cosmopolitan-type to attract a more sophisticated audience. My vocal range is broad for VO's and singing: a 3-4 octave range, encompassing a Baritone up through a 1st Alto Range. I have several voices I can utilize: a warm radio voice for narration and product spokesman; an upbeat young voice for commercials; a clean and smooth voice for making presentations with precise diction and tone clarity; various characters and dailects that can be used for color or characterizations.
