My Voice Experience
Like many artists, novice or pro, I have been told I should be on radio and so forth. I've been to voice over introduction classes. These have been informative. However they all say they can get you voice over work if you pay them thousands of dollars.
I prefer to stay with the school of hard knocks.
I have done quite a few auditions from ads in Craigslist. I have only done, to this day, one official web commercial voice over for a client in Maine.
Most important, this is an extremely fun job. I enjoy recording and making people happy.
In 1993, I was a phone salesman for a tire wholesale company. Many of our customers would always say my voice should be in radio. This was a combination of training and my natural voice in action. During this time I was also a lead vocalist to local heavy metal bands. This gave me the experience to train my voice. As you can imagine, singing in music can take a toll on the voice if you're not trained.
In November of 09, I attended one of my first introduction to voice over seminars. These were very informative. Though later I would learn they were more a sales pitch with no real guarantee for work.
Here I am now at Voices123 just doing things the good ol' fashion way. Just putting the word out!
