Voice Description

I am a full-time Professional Voice Talent. I’ve recorded video game and animated characters, commercials, industrials, narrations, training videos, Internet videos, educational scripts, and other projects.

As a voice professional, I would like my clients to think of me as part of their production team and will deliver your voice over the way you want it, because to me, it’s not just about meeting your expectations, but exceeding them.

If you are looking for a friendly, authentic voice for your next campaign, or a new character voice for animation, explore my profile and you too can have the 'nearly indestructible' voice for your next campaign. For booking information, email me at: kennyjamesvoice@comcast.net, call 360-328-8659 or check out KennyJamesVoice.com.

VOICE STYLE/TYPE
My voice over type has been described as accessible, friendly, genuine, conversational, authentic, articulate, authoritative, animated, informative, confident, professional, believable, guy next door, everyman, high energy, upbeat, soft sell, hard sell, rugged, sincere, cool, hip, cynical, gravelly, corporate, business like, relatable, sophisticated, knowledgeable, promo, urgent, and is consistently cast for a wide range of age requirements.

BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY
I believe in treating clients like partners. Working together should be as easy as if you were working together in the same office. Communication is frequent and work is completed promptly (often same day) so you never have to guess the progress of your project or worry if it will be completed on time.
You can rely on me to treat your project with great care, whether large or small! Every project is equally important.

PERFORMANCE CAPABILITES
Authentic is the first word that comes to most client’s minds when describing my voice. Trustworthy, Sincere, Authoritative, Friendly, Fresh, Powerful, Energetic, and Relatable are also accurate adjectives. Whether your need is a voice over for a commercial, white-board animation, corporate narration, video, e-learning, explainer video, training video, internet video, tv project, educational script, IVR prompts, on-hold message, tutorial, direct response ad (DR), talking toy, gps, medical, technical, legal, mobile app (Android or iOS), radio imaging, or high powered promo . . . I can deliver.
