Etienne Melancon

Very versatile, singer, impressions, guy next door

Voice Description

Being a musician and singer, I have the ability of listening very closely and make fine detail changes to my voice to either transform it or reproduce another one. In it's natural state, my voice is more of a smooth warm, guy next door voice. I am not as good in deep low voices for narration but I am currently working on it. I can do commercials, professional for presentations, sung voices, impressions, etc... Best I could say is, I'll let you know if it's out of my reach, if not, it probably isn't.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

My Voice Experience

I have been working as a musician and singer for the past 15 years, recording almost everyday in my own studio, producing radio quality recordings. Although I am new in the voice-over business I have a lot of experience with my voice and my recording equipment.

My Training

I have studied jazz music in St-Laurent College in Montreal. I haven't relied on many people for training in my life, I noticed very early on that I could teach myself, much faster, anything along with the internet and that way it made my approach much more unique. Essentially, I consider the past 15 years as constant studying and experimenting.

My Studio Equipment

I have a complete studio since I've always recorded my albums and other artists from my home studio. I currently work with Cubase, a Motu Traveler sound card, a Neumann TLM 103 microphone and a Shure SM7B microphone. My mixes are all mastered so that no peaking ever occurs. I use many different technics to give the stereo image a wider mix and a fuller sound with nice low basses, clean highs and responsive mids.

Additional Skills

I am currently a musician, singer, mixer, producer, cameraman, editor, director, programmer, website designer, graphic artist, animator...I am self taught in everything I do, I am a perfectionist and have the will to learn to the best of my abilities. I am humble and not complicated to work with. I have been working around people long enough to know how to interact and make sure everyone is pleased with my work in whatever field it may be. I am open minded and believe the client is always right (don't worry I'll give you my input but the final choice is yours ;)
I strive for my work to be flawless, timeless, painless and punctual.
Hope to have the pleasure to work with you!
Best Regards.
