Andy Barnett

Real Authentic VO! Conversational, Professional, Friendly, Versatile...

Voice Description

Andy has been acting since he was a kid (and by some accounts he still is a kid). Some voice actors claim versatility, but Andy embodies it. His natural conversational voice is friendly, laid back, just like your buddy from college or your next door neighbor. More than one client has suggested he kind of sounds like Jon Hamm at times. But don’t let that fool you, Andy also has the vocal gravitas to do everything from a younger sound to a deep masculine blue-collar Midwesterner, from a straight announcer to an international neutral accent, and last but not least, a variety of character voices. Just don’t ask him to sing or dance (the poor guy can’t carry a note, and his coordination is rather cringeworthy).

Approachable and conversational for Guy Next Door commercials.
Hard Sell for commercials.
Funny, Silly, and Entertaining for Character work.
Compassionate and full of conviction for good causes.
Warm and Authentic for Narrations.
Professional and Friendly for Corporate work.
Serious and ear-catching for political ads.
Warm Storyteller for audiobooks.
Gen-X, Gen-Y for web videos.
