Gareth Reid

Warm energetic, trustworthy, regular guy next door

Voice Description

Not a one trick pony.

I'm most proud of my "regular guy" voice, but it all depends on the script and backstory.

I have a warm, trustworthy, deep voice for narrations.
I'm energetic and fun, or conversational depending on the commercial.
My voice is clear and precise for phone systems.
I can be edgy for TV and Radio promos.
I'm easy to listen to and professional for business presentations.
I can also provide accents and characters depending on the need.

...and my singing voice can be described as Neil Diamond meets the Stone Temple Pilots, who had a baby with Burton Cummings.

My Voice Experience

I have been voicing regional TV and radio spots since 1994, ranging from the light-hearted conversational, to the hard-sell-without-sounding-like-an-announcer type reads.

I have also been honing my craft with "the voiceover coach" Michael Minetree.

I provide voicetracks for numerous radio stations and write, produce, and voice an hour long weekly program entitled; "The Vinyl Frontier". Its an expose of one of the greatest classic rock albums of all time, mixed with artist facts, interviews and of course the album in it's entirety.
