Michael Lear

Authoritative, eloquent, commanding

Voice Description

With a background in news, I have a strong, authoritative and straightforward delivery. By adding a little breath, it becomes warm, smooth and even stylish. I can vary pitch to bring out a younger man or teenager. For upbeat pieces, I can offer a higher-pitched delivery with the option of greater speed for that "Micro Machines" guy voice.

My Voice Experience

I have 12 years experience in a small-market radio station. After recording copy for local businesses with no additional compensation beyond my salary, I decided it was time to offer my services to a larger market.

For over a decade, I have recorded hundreds of ads for local businesses, complete with production often including effects, music or natural sound. Now I offer that experience to you!

My Training

I have studied voice acting with Paul Meier, a renowned dialect coach who has also taught voice acting at Kansas State University. He has worked as a dialect coach on several Hollywood movies, as the casting director for the Rosetta Stone series and as the voice of the Wal-Mart Icon, "Smiley," from 2003.
