Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Character spots-both Funny and Dramatic-these are my greatest strengths! My 'natural' voice is a warm, rich baritone. While I have employed that voice thousands of times in straight-read commercial, corporate and e-learning projects, I am also able to go way 'over-the-top'! I am a vocal chameleon, capable of wearing many, many different hats. I speak English and have been paid many times over the years to employ many different dialects and characters. I have also voiced a wide range of animals and assorted inanimate objects! Demo, containing extensive, individual audio samples, available upon request.

My Voice Experience

I've done thousands of voiceovers-for the big guys (nationals) and the not-so-big guys on radio, television, cyberspace, and scores of corporate and industrial productions.
I've been heard in museums, recorded books, even inside toys!
Shucks, you've probably seen me many times on NBC's ˜Law and Order telling Lieutenant Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) "I told ya-I don't know nutting'!

American Express, Advest, Aetna Insurance, Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield, AT&T, and lots of other A’s…Pfizer, Microsoft, Adobe, RCA, ESPN, Stanley Tool, Spalding, Konica, Kelloggs, Curad, Hasbro, Friendly’s, Fox Television, Foxwoods, United Technologies, Sikorsky Aircraft, Columbia House Audio Books and well, you get the picture!
Over the past several years, I have secured a great deal of instuctional/tutorial work, including a good deal of e-learning work for Microsoft, Adobe, Cisco, Noven, Novartis, Takeda, AARP, The Hartford, etc. I had the privilege of voicing the provocative and somewhat controversial audiobook 'The Jesus Family Tomb' for Harper Audio.

My Training

B.S. in Theatre, SUNY Brockport (NY)
The Neighborhood Playhouse, NYC (Meisner method)
Weist-Barron, NYC, radio/TV commercials and Soap Opera training
Ruth Franklin, Voiceover training (NYC)
The Corner Loft (NYC) master classes in acting, taught by guest directors such as Otto Preminger, Martin Charnin, AJ Antoon, etc.
Decades of professional experience have provided me a substantial learning experience!

My Studio Equipment

iMac and Pro Tools, Logic Pro with lots of plug-ins by Ozone, Waves, Aphex, Joe Meek, etc. Phone patch.....

Additional Skills

I offer clean and clear audio tracks which can be sent you in any of the usual formats via cyberspace and snail mail. Of course I can burn a CD! I have an excellent and QUIET recording facility, featuring a Pro Tools/Mac workstation. Original music can be created for your project. Having the 'chops' and technical know-how are a 'given', but I'd like to think that one of my best selling points is my recognition and appreciation of the fact that I am in the business of serving my clients; of listening to them and understanding their needs.
I am a highly experienced, professional singer! Please visit my singing site: michaelsings.com
As both a former College teacher (Public Speaking/English Department) and as an ad agency copywriter, I know something about communicating effectively and writing commercial copy. As a producer/engineer, I tend to be rather demanding of myself: I like to send out files that are pristine. If you can simply 'drop it in', you will like me much more than bachelor #2.
Finally-I am a highly ethical feller! My word is my bond. I approach my work and my clients with professionalism and courtesy. I appreciate being accorded the same!
