Deep, velvet, soothing, narrator, malleable

Voice Description

My voice is very deep in normal conversation tone; ever since I was 16 people have been mistaking me for my father. It is very smooth in tone, but incredibly dynamic and expressive; there's no monotone here.

I can put a wide spectrum of exuberance into a narration style voice, whether it be for a calmer, documentary style, or something that requires something fused with an energetic quality.

I can sing, on key, in accents and character voices or with proper, real tone and timbre.

My falsetto is strong, and I can range to a higher tone for female or childlike voices with a large measure of versatility.

Presentational quality tends to be more theatric and charismatic in nature, as though speaking to a large audience.

I'm really capable of molding my voice to do a lot of things, and I'm always trying more and more with it.
