Matthew Ebel

Clean, young, conversational, upbeat.

Voice Description

I've been a secret-agent space werewolf, military leaders, sinister aliens, and young warriors in Richard L. Sanders' "Phoenix Conspiracy" Audiobooks. I've been a disgruntled cop battling the zombie hordes in the hit game "Contagion". I've also breathed life into countless mind-numbing medical and technical training videos.

I’ve played at the Grand Ole Opry, been quoted in Rolling Stone, and made a name for myself in new media circles as a musician, podcaster, and freelance producer. I own my own studio and have been producing my own material for over seven years now.

I tend to experiment with my sound a lot, but unless I'm screaming or snoring people tell me they love my voice. I’ll take their word for it, but you can find out for yourself by listening to the samples or contacting me. All I know is that I have a voice that can do many things, most of which involves talking.

My specialties are:
* Intense promo reads (movie trailer, sports commercial, etc.)
* Audiobook narration (with or without character voices)
* Highly technical reads (I can manage convoluted polysyllables from medical or technological training copy)
* Sarcastic, Denis Leary-esque reads

As part of the podcasting boom of the early 2000's, I did extensive voice work for independent, hobbyist, and professional producers. I also produced my own sci-fi themed music podcast featuring robot voices, sound effects, and alien characters.

Additional Skills

I have an extensive musical background, earning my primary living as a performing/recording artist. I can create custom music for jobs, just ask for rates. I also have experience with technology and programming and can read both medical and tech copy with ease.

As I own my own studio, I can typically fulfill voice jobs in less than 48 hours if I'm not on tour– and I will not accept a job until I can give the client an ETA that's acceptable to them.
