Voice Description

In a world, picture if you will, a voice.
A voice seemingly not of this world.
A voice from above. Or is it from below?

Follow it's advice you must.
Trust it implicitly you can.

My Home Base

, California, United States

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Naturally deep baritone/bass voice with incredible range and falsetto.

My natural voice is my wheelhouse for commercial and narration work and allows me to be the voice of authority, the guy next door, and the stereo-typical announcer guy.

However, my range gives me the flexibility to go anywhere, from deep gravelly demons, to small children, to lisping, slobbering animals and creatures from outer space. I find it fun to sit around and try to find new ways to sound unique.

Characterizations:
James Earl Jones (Luke, I am Mufasa, this is CNN)
Don Pardo
Don LaFontaine
Voice of God
Frank Oz characters (Yoda, Grover)
Demonic/underworld characters (no effects necessary)
Marvin the martian, Goofy, Mickey

My Training

Born with a deep, rich baritone voice and flair for showmanship, Brad Wines commanded center stage from birth. From his first school play, to his first local TV commercial, to his first weekly local radio station gig, Brad had accomplished much before graduating high school.

Brad graduated Cumma Sum Laude from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 1991, with a BS in Business Administration. During his college years he still managed to find time for community theater (musicals and dramas) and a radio station gig.

After graduating, Brad began a 15 year career with Walt Disney Imagineering. Surrounded by creativity and having the opportunity to work in the sound stages and studios gave Brad great learning opportunities and VO work. He even co-founded the Flower Street Players, a Disney in-house theater company.

Now, Brad is hungry to return to his creative roots and use the gifts that God has given him and no longer deny himself, that wich he was born to do!

Brad is currently training with David H. Lawrence XVII.

Additional Skills

Hmmm...Let's see.

When I was twelve I was fairly adept at belching the alphabet while arm farting the national anthem.

More recently I've gone too far in indoctrinating my son into the Star Wars universe. Now 7, his knowledge surpasses my own. He swears he is ready to take the Jedi trials.

Seriously, currently, I enjoy being Cubmaster for my sons pack and teaching them skits, silly songs, and storytelling.
I also am the featured storyteller at his school whenever I am available.
