John Jacob Burkhardt

Honest, Sincere, Wry, Authoritative, Fatherly

Voice Description

Honest, Reassuring, Conversational, and Friendly.
Tough, Direct, and Commanding.
Fatherly, Trustworthy, Sincere, and Integrity.
Intense, Strong, and Authoritative.
No-nonsense, Matter-of-fact, Man next door, and Wry.

From John's Voice Coach - Nancy Wilson: "John’s sound has a slight similarity to the man who used to do the ads for The Men’s Warehouse (George Zimmerman). But he does not have Zimmerman’s eastern accent and he has much more depth. He sounds a bit tough, direct, and no-nonsense. Intense. He will be great at ‘manly’ spots, authoritative, spokesperson for water and power companies, the guy with the hardhat on – but not necessarily the guy up on the pole --- but his boss. He would be great for John Deere --- not necessarily the guy on the tractor but the guy running the company. He would be a great doctor, lawyer, or judge."

Nancy has also said "John has the sound of Jonathan Goldsmith, The Most Interesting Man in the World". "Stay thirsty my friends".
