John Jay

Character reads, impressions, good intensity

Voice Description

I have a very unique voice - I have been a morning radio talent for 14 years, and now afternoon talk. I have developed some great character voices, including some usable dialects and affectations. I can do a serviceable Sean Connery (who can't, though...!), Hank Hill, and a few others.

My voice isn't particularly deep, but it is pure, and sincere. The "everyman" VO is somewhat of a specialty. I can do intense & hard, but it's not my forte.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

British, Scottish (a barely understandable brogue - brutal & violent, but often very funny), great "downhome" southern US accent (hillbilly) that I've honed to a great degree of quality.
