My Voice Experience

Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev)has been dong voice over since his father bought him a tape recorder in 1972. Serious or funny, fiction or non-fiction, Joe Bev is "an absolute clinic on the art of voice acting" says Steven Brandt, Audiobook Heaven, "His voices are unique and are delivered flawlessly. And he also writes stories and music! This is quite a talented guy. As with Joe Bev’s other Waterlogg Productions, the music and sound effects are well done."

In 2011 Joe Bevilacqua signed a new deal with Audible to distribute all of his audio books including radio drama, science fiction, documentary, comedy and biography. And Joe signed a deal with Sirius/XM Sirius XM Radio to broadcast his work on the Book Radio Ch. 80. In 2012, he created over 600 hours of audio available on Amazon, iTunes, and Audible for Kindle, Blackberry, Android, iPhone, iPod or iPad download, or CD purchase or rental.

Bevilacqua frequently works as a team with his multi-talented wife Lorie Kellogg. Together, they have lent their vocal characterizations to such projects as: Spanish Halloween Stories for Children: Translated into English, Spanish Christmas Stories for Children: Translated into English, The New Stories of Old-Time Radio: Volume One, Daws Butler’s Halloween Happening, The Best of Cartoon Carnival, Volume One: 'The Interviews'.

Anne Pyburn, Ulster Press/Bluestone Press, says "Joe Bevilacqua and Lorie B. Kellogg have created a vast, classic, yet marvelously fresh universe of books, audio books, original and vintage radio comedy and more."

Audiobook Heaven REVIEW: "Joe an Lorie are both extremely talented voice artists. They can both do lots of entertaining voices, not just characterizations but whole personalities, and they both have a fine flair for drama, satire, and comedy. Put them together and, well, need I say more? If you haven’t heard these two at work, you’re missing out on something special."

Joe voiced Commander Crumpet for the Bob Camp (co-founder of and director for Ren & Stimpy of Spümcø) designed iPhone game 'Tanks of Fury' produced by Iversoft released Christmas 2011. His wife Lorie Kellogg voiced the character Desert Fox on the 'Tanks of Fury' game.

In 2009 Bevilacqua did a commentary for Public Radio's Marketplace. about his "green lifestyle".

For 25 years Joe Bevilacqua was a frequent contributor to National Public Radio, and, in 2004, was awarded a Silver Reel Award from the National Federation of Community Broadcasters for his personal essay A Guy Named Joe Bevilacqua, and two New York Festivals awards for "Lady Bird Johnson: Legacy of a First Lady" in 2001 and the NPR [1] All Things Considered tribute to Joe Barbera in 2006.

From 2002 - 2006 Bevilacqua and his wife Lorie Kellogg co-produced the Comedy-O-Rama hour XM Radio, Sonic Theater ch. 160, which is now Sirius/XM Sirius XM Radio Book Ch. 80.

He co-edited, with Ben Ohmart, a book of Daws Butler scripts entitled Scenes for Actors and Voices in 2003 and in 2004 co-wrote the authorized biography: Daws Butler: Characters Actor.
