My Voice Experience

I am new to the voice over experience. But not new to recording my voice or performance. I am an award winning songwriter and musician who has been told over and again i have the most amazing speaking voice. I have both a creative and financial background in the music industry (A licensed CPA); i am an african american male who grew up in the midwest - i call myself bilingual with american midwest and southern black dialects. My range of experiences and perfect diction and pronunciation when needed provides a very flexible and easily understood voice. there is a character and spirit to the voice that transcends sound - the voice of someone soothing, interesting, and interested all in one. i have a very capable home studio with which i can experiment and provide you demos without much expense as well as many music beds and sound libraries to add to any projects. thanks for your consideration :)
