Darren Kleven

classic, sonorous, wide dynamic range, expressive

Voice Description

My voice can range from Yosemite Sam abrasive to soft sensual warm deep and inviting.

I am adept at performing the classic hard sell - soft read Movie Trailer sound and classic "announcer" voice over including the "old style" movie tone news type of delivery.

I have a smooth delivery for presentations,narrative, documentaries without losing the emotive quality to keep audiences engaged.


Friendly mature next door neighbor or mentor.

I am your best friend...trustworthy
