Joe Bianco

Gravely, Full, Smokey, Deep

Voice Description

Smooth, tonally deep and warm with just a bit of gravel. It can be rugged or and comforting in the lower resonators (hospitals, whiskey, hunting). It can also be upbeat and fun in the higher resonators (guy next door, characters, narrations). The best quality I have is my acting experience and vocal control which gives me a wide variety of available reads.

My Voice Experience

In 2007 I was given my first paid gig to record the Narrator's lines for a production on Beauty & The Beast. While in college, I continued my voice work by assisting students on projects/presentations and doing a local TV commercial in Decatur. I studied voice work and dialects with Laura Ledford while attending Millikin University. Upon graduation, I moved to Chicago and took voice classes with Deb Doetzer and Jeff Lupetin at Chicago Acting Studio. I became a full-time voice talent within three years. I also work professionally as an actor in Chicago.
