Matthew Davis

Deep, Traditional, Announcer, Character

Voice Description

If you need it, I can provide it. My voice has been described, (by the average layperson), as "radiophonic", "trustworthy", "melodious", "sensuous", "deep", "powerful", and "commanding attention". I have worked as a voice, stage, and screen actor, so I know how to emphasise my words to convey meaning, emotion, inflection, and intent. I am well versed in several dialects and accents, and do celebrity impersonations, (both living and passed).
Be it a narration for a documentary, or a fun commercial or application; James Earl-Jones-ish or Jerry Lewis-like, I can deliver!

My Voice Experience

I've done everything from on stage narrations and readings to nine different characters for funmail website. I have done pre-show, recorded announcements for live theater as well as directional recordings for people's websites and on phone directories. I've also recorded several narration and character voices for many student films, ranging from a 1930's style radio announcer to Satan. (I know, wide range, right?) As a singer, I have a 3 1/2 octave range, so I'll be able to handle almost anything vocally in a speaking voice.

My Training

I studied extensively at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill under teachers who were students of Lee Strausberg and Stella Adler. I worked with Byron Peters on presentation and performance privately, as well as many dielect and accent coaches. I've had four different bands in my time, and have logged hundreds of hours in studios and recording facilities. I also currently work in sales, so my voice and the way I can manipulate it is crucial to how well I can sell.

My Studio Equipment

I have access to three different studios with equipment ranging from Garage Band to ProTools. I have access to, and use Sennheiser, Blue, Audio-Technica, and Neumann microphones with top of the line pop filters and processing equipment.
