John Beeman

Deep, rich baritone; smooth, calm, and convincing

Voice Description

My voice is often best described as being a deep, rich baritone ideally suited for announcing, advertising, narrations, and presentations of all types.

A subtle Midwestern accent provides a warm, trustworthy quality but the deep tonal range also allows for a variety of male voice styles, including assertive, calming, authoritative, fatherly, resonating, and sage.

Gregarious, outgoing personality and stand-up comedy training and experience allow for moderate-to-extreme voice inflections and conveying a range of emotions and impressions, including humor, exuberance, seriousness, and informative.
