My Voice Experience

a)I consider my skills as a twenty-five professional, headliner and main-stage recording/'live' entertainer veteran as my ultimate training. Having achieved top-of-the-charts action in the Club/Dance music genres and working in recording booths, behind a mic, with countless producers and writers over a two-decade period; experience has taught me about inflection, breathing, tone and mic-technique. In 2009, my voice received heavy rotation on the MTV network from a song that I released, and is till being played from time to time. The voice is somewhat recognizable to the public worldwide from this event and many others.

I am currently transitioning over into voice-over field 'full-time'. Although I enjoy being behind a mic, it's more fulfilling knowing that my doing so is helping a business to grow or a product to sell. Additionally, I bring with me my library of songs that were eith written solely by yours truly or was co-written, fully produced, master rights available and published or co-published on my end. So, if you hear a demo here with a song that's right for your next production, simply contact me.

b) Although I am based in Los Angeles, Ca (USA) most recently, my voice over skills have been used in Italy on radio stations for Station IDs. On some of these, I used my speaking voice and for others, my singing abilities were called upon. I done this sort of work in Australia and England as well (i.e. listen to the demo posted labeled - 'The Mike Smith Radio Show'). Mr. Smith's bumper was produced in 2008. My first Station ID was done for a station in Conneticut in 1999 and the Italian jobs, 2011. The latter came from my previous workas a professional recording artist who had worked with Italian music producer, Paolo Stocchero (aka Dr. Kmer).

c) My Voice Over classes/training in Los Angeles are on-going and with a very well-known VOA and trainer who has been in the voice over business for more than thirty years. Even more training has come from my acting/scare-acting jobs at Universal Studios Hollywood over the past fifteen years. Initially, I was cast as their first 'Mummy' for the annual Halloween Horror Nights eventin 1997. This was followed by years of being cast as Frankenstien and other characters for Universal Hollywood.

Additional Skills

As a potential client, you should know that I began my standard working career in the field of customer service and sales. As a newly hired customer service representative for major companies such as Amtrak Railways and Cigna Health, superior training was provided before allowing me to perform the actual job.

The training theat was provided has stayed with me and, I put it to use in my own company here at JyRo Entertainment. My employees (be they my background singers, musicians or whomever) understand that the customer comes first. We pride ourselves in presenting to you our very best in every way.
