My Voice Experience

Here are a few testimonials from voice-over clients of mine:

“Jim is everything you want in a VO talent – professional, talented, directable, confident, efficient, and one heck of a nice guy. As a producer, I've worked with Jim for over 20 years, and every time he works with one of my new clients they are always thrilled and stress-free as the recording process unfolds. Highly recommend.”
Charlie Martin, Marketing Communications Manager, Red Echo Post, Cincinnati, Ohio. 513-721-7777

“We have been working with Jim Smith for many years because we know what we’re going to get: a highly professional talent who is great to work with and repeatedly delivers the highest quality voice-over, usually requiring minimal retakes. Our scripts can get pretty technical and Jim usually gets to see them for the first time when he enters the studio, yet he consistently nails them and his delivery comes across as confident and sounding like he’s an expert on the material. We have always been happy with Jim’s work, and more importantly, so have our clients.”
Jim Weyman, Producer, ACG Multimedia, Cincinnati, Ohio. 513-936-5060
