My Voice Experience

2008- Character voice for music single titled "America".

It should be noted that the bulk of my work was done years ago in NY( I now reside in south FL ), and as such, i do not have material available for a demo. I recently did VO work as listed above in dec. of last year for a song by a rock band called Dark Star Revolt, and I have attached an audio sample clip of the character voice in the sections of the song that I did for them. I am working on putting together a demo of all my vocal abilities.
