Rick Myers

Sam Elliott-like!

Voice Description

My voice has been described by industry professionals as:

Solid...mid-range...resonant...news anchor-like...good inflection and pitch use...subdued...engaging to the listener...very wise, intelligent, and mature-sounding...not hurried...a gentle, easy, storytelling style!

This makes my voice ideal for pretty much ANYTHING you might have in mind:

COMMERCIALS - CORPORATE NARRATIONS - AUDIO BOOKS - WHATEVER YOU NEED!

In addition to my natural speaking voice, I can also do character voices, accents/dialects, and can also sing pretty well, if need be!

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I can sound exactly like an old man.
I can do either a deep southern or farm-type drawl.
I can mimic the speech patterns of children.
I can do accents: British, Irish, French, Scandinavian, Eastern European/Slavic (I do a fairly mean Dracula), and German (I even actually speak and understand a little German).
I can impersonate Boris Karloff.
I can do cartoon characters: Marvin-the-Martian, Yosemite Sam, Yogi Bear and Boo-Boo, Barney Rubble, Bullwinkle, Dudley Do-Right, and Goofy.
I can do the Muppet characters Kermit-the-Frog and Gonzo-the-Great.

I can be smooth and mellifluous or I can go raspy...I can even sound demonic if asked.

My voice is very flexible; I can go a lot of ways with it...I may even be able to do things not listed here because I've never been asked.

My Voice Experience

My experience (up-to-now) is as an amateur in a former church of mine in San Diego, CA in the late 1970's/early 1980's. Most notably:

I played a character named George (a teenager during the time of the American Revolution) in a musical called "REVOLUTIONARY IDEAS."

I was the Gospel Writer/Apostle John in a Christian Musical entitled "CELEBRATE LIFE."

In both of these cases (and in many others) I also sang.

NOW...I'M GOING PROFESSIONAL!

My Training

I graduated from a Radio Broadcasting Curriculum at National Broadcasting School in Seattle, WA.

At the school we did everything: copywriting, running the sound board, voicing, laying sound-effect/background voices and music, and editing.

I'm a Such-A-Voice Masterclass graduate.

My Studio Equipment

I have a fully equipped in-home studio consisting of:

A Sweetwater Creation Station Tower Computer with Pro-Tools recording software and an MBox2Mini to control the Pro-Tools,

A Rode NTG2 Directional Shotgun Microphone with Mic Stand and Music Stand,

and Sennheiser HD280Pro Closed Studio Headphones.
