Zach Holzman

Rough, Casual, Guy Next Door, Character Specialist

Voice Description

My natural voice has a bit of gravel to it and a casual tone in the mid/low register. I sound like the kind of guy you'd want to get a beer with, so I'm an ideal fit if you want a voice with a guy-next-door vibe. But I'm variable: if needs be, I can also provide a deep, smooth tone that will grab the listener.

I'm great with character voices: from the deranged lunatic, to the flamboyant clubber. Need a drill sergeant? How about a schoolyard bully? Perhaps a hammy superhero? The rugged manly man, or the shy nerd. I've got a lot of tricks up my sleeve, with a range that easily spans from low to high. Check my character demo for some examples.

For narrations, I can be big and powerful, or use my natural, laid-back tone to engage the listener.
