Jim Overbey

silly, serious, upbeat or off the wall, 100+ voices

Voice Description

Not your typical VO. But that's a good thing.

With an extensive background in theatre, comedy and music, I've developed a cache of characters and some impressive impressions...
..allowing me to go from folksy to funny to sincere to satirical - and all in the first sentence!
Plus, with 20+ years experience as award-winning copywriter, I know JUST the read you're looking for.
So should the need arise, I can offer you invaluable services from branding to concepts to creative to copy to completed recordings.
If not, you have my guarantee I won't mess with your script (which is quite impressive coming from a copywriter, don't you think?!)
