Michael Loonan

Guy next door, personable, sincere, witty, real

Voice Description

"A voice for all seasons." My voice is the guy-next-door, conversational, natural and 'real' sounding. It's also versatile. I can be authoritative for corporate video, sly and ironic for comedic spots, aloof (the 'dumb-husband'), sincere, trustworthy sexy, crystal-clear diction for technical/web-savvy content, medical terminology, smart, silly, etc.

I'm also a full-time music composer/jingle producer, with legions of satisfied clients. (see below)

My Training

Ten-plus years working relationship with Talent Agency, producing CD compilations of voice talent. In addition, I've produced countless voice-demos for prospective voice talent. Have produced large-scale corporate events with Meeting/Event Company, where I was also in-house audio producer, creating customized audio arrangements for live and taped meetings, etc. These days, I'm a full-time musician, both performer and producer. I play live around the Twin Cities several times per month, including church services on Sunday (is that a gig?). I have a site for my music business as well as a site for my original music . I've released 4 CDs, including "Share the Disguise," which was nominated for 'Pop Album of the Year' at the Minnesota Music Awards.

Additional Skills

I own a professional studio where I produce ongoing voice-demos for satisfied clients. I can also compose music on the fly (themes, underscores, layered vocals, multiple instruments, etc), so I am a 'one-stop' solution for any audio needs. I've played piano for nearly 30 years, currently playing solo and dueling piano shows around Minnesota. I can go from Cole Porter to Gilligan's Island to Bohemian Rhapsody to Coldplay in a matter of seconds (ok, minutes). Prior to music career, I was a successful marketing manager for 12 years with the Fingerhut Corporation, in a highly productive telemarketing division of the company. I then worked 4 years at the aforementioned Video & Event company , as audio producer/engineer, assistant event planner, Powerpoint specialist, Video editor and more!
Nowadays, a stay-at-home dad with full-time music/voice-over business happening 24/7. I love today's technology! (I love my wife and kids too)
