Thomas Hadley

Character or stentorian, bass to falsetto.

Voice Description

Starting in high school, then college, and as an AM/FM announcer/DJ at age 28, I have been fascinated, (and played around with), voice characterizations. Like most Boomer Americans, I was first inspired by Mel Blank as Bugs Bunny, et al. More recently, I've gained valuable skills through experience. since my 2001 premiere as 'Murray the Cop' in "The Odd Couple" in community theater to an Indie Film as a redneck mall cop, to an august lawyer in our current project, "The Haunted".
From a Dusty Trails the cowboy, to a Cockney pirate or Captain Bligh, my voice can range from Darth Vader to a prissy drag queen affecting lisping and falsetto. I can bring in the Old Geezer, the Odd Child, or the weepy matron to speak for you, as well. Narration with natural moderational emphases comes to me naturally, as well.
