Ike Byrd III

Strong, smooth and sophisticated

Voice Description

My voice is very strong and commanding like a drill sargent (I am prior military), very James Earl Jones. I've been told it's super smooth at times like a balladeer. Very articulate and crystal clear for narration. After taking her class, September Day said "You have a great voice for a Lexus or Mercedes commercial". I have a tendency to command full attention when I speak or sing.
