David Ritt

Crisp enunciation, intellectual

Voice Description

My range is baritone through light tenor. For narration, I sound professional and intellectual. For commercials, I can be persuasive, enthusiastic, or zany, as appropriate. I can be as serious or as humorous as needed. While not a professional singer, I AM a professional musician, so I can sing accurately on pitch and reproduce requested voice ranges with precision. I also sightread with correct emphasis.

My Voice Experience

I have been a classical trombonist with the Seattle Symphony for thirty years. I was reading from a script at a party several years ago, when a talent producer asked if I was an actor or in radio, then told me I should be.

After a year of voice coaching, I auditioned for the Washington Talking Book and Braille Library, and was put to work reading local news and editorials on their private radio station, and later recorded several books on tape for them.

I am presently waiting to be discovered. Therefore, you will find me willing, reliable, happy to take direction, cheerful, pleasant, and unfailingly modest.
