Gary Crow-Willard

Deep smooth bass, personable, character, authority

Voice Description

Gary Crow-Willard's warm, dark bass offers you smooth yet honest, intelligent reads, great characterizations and versatility for narrations. He is comfortable with easy going guy on the street OR commanding and authoritative voicing for commercials OR the voice of god for trailers. He won 1st place in the Edge Studio VO contest in April of 2011.

His is a true character voice and he takes direction well. How do you want it? All of that, and he actually is fun to work with and enjoys helping you get a fabulously targeted read - one that gets the results you need. This is a truly unique voice that has been compared with the great Paul Frees and Vincent Price.
