Here's what one client had to say;

Dear Voice Over Seekers,

When my usual LA based VO suspects were booked, I decided to shop online for a voice, more out of desperation than desire. I had to book someone, and I had very little time. I had heard about this website 'voice123' so I checked it out. The minute I heard Dave Atwood's voice I knew I had found a diamond in the rough. I quickly sent him a sample of my copy and within minutes he responded. WOW is all I can say. He simply NAILED it. Besides his superb voice quality, what I heard was that he intently read my instructions, and tailored his read to tell me he completely 'got' what I was trying to do. I wanted a "50's Sci-Fi trailer read' and it was exactly what I got. So I hired Dave, and dealing with him on the job was simply a pleasure. His attitude was 'consider it done' whenever I had a note. He turned cuts around swiftly, which was deeply appreciated, as I had an editor on the clock!

I have been in the "business" for 25 years, and I have Executive Produced some of the most popular shows on television (American Idol, America's Most Wanted, American Gladiators) and I must say that Dave belongs in the group of the top VO announcers I have ever worked with. I would highly recommend him for whatever need you may have. Even if his reel doesn't exactly fit the mold you are looking for, trust me, he is so versatile and skilled that no doubt he will thread the needle for you and make you as satisfied as I am.
