Ruben Castillo

Character Specialist and Versatile Impressionist

Voice Description

Ruben has a very unique and versatile vocal style . He can deliver a gritty, rugged sound, and can come across burly and tough or smooth and sexy. He has a mid-range tone which allows him to be warm and friendly, professional and endearing. Ruben's vocal range is quite wide. With an upper-register he can sound like a pre-teen or young adult in his early 20's, mid-late 20's or 30's. His middle-age range is quite versatile as well, from early to mid 40's, late 40's or early 50's. He can sound in his 60's, 70's and even 80's. Accents and characters are perhaps one of Ruben's strongest suits. Dialects include: British (London, Liverpudlian, proper), Southern American (Texan, Country, Cowboy, redneck, hillbilly), Hispanic (Mexican, Central American, Latino--most Latin American Countries), Russian, French, Minnesota, Chicago, New York East Coast and California Surfer. He can also sound Irish, Australian, Jewish, Middle Eastern, Italian, and Indian.
