Jimmy Albert

What range! Straight & character, trained w/ best

Voice Description

My voice is diverse. Harvey Kalmenson of Abrahms Rubiloff said: "You're VERY good and have a very marketable quality."
Mel Cassell of Casell-Levy said: "Excellent range!"
Hanna Barbera's Andrea Romano: "I like your style. I want to get you in here!"

My voice can be warm and friendly, smiley, sing-songy or compassionate as if sharing with a friend.
No problem if you want a Wry, Dry, Tongue-in-cheek quality: Smirk, sarcastic, raised-eyebrow type,
Authoritative: Ranging from a deep, rich timber to a leathery texture, the gravel-throated sincerity of Dennis Weaver on straight work to a full variety of character capabilities. I've been a mouse, a bug, an elephant and more.

Like Steve Mackel, I have a primarily authoritative voice but I can sure get wacky like Robin Williams, bringing boring scripts to life! Tell me you want me "over the top"!

My acting & improv background helps me to quickly create character voices a la Pat Fraley.

My Voice Experience

Formerly represented by The Barnes Agency, Hollywood, I trained with the best in the business. One nice compliment stands out to me. I popped in on one of my favorite teacher's vo classes...Joanie Gerber, and she had me do a cold read. Anything can happen. Her students listened attentively and Joanie told me how many seconds my take must be. I arrowed up, put on a psychotic smile and delivered it on the mark. She turned to her class who had been working hard for months on timing and taking direction well and she said "Scary isn't it?"

I've been blessed to have a deep, resonant timber that by default is on the announcerish side. I've done both voice-over and on-camera work... Its a thrill I never tire of.
