New York based upbeat or casual guy next door

Voice Description

Guy Next Door
Words that describe not only my voice, but myself as a person. A voice actors most natural voice is the essence of who he or she is. As an eternal optimist with a steady smile on my face, this is who I am.

Over the Top
I'm easily enthused and excited and while I have learned to keep myself in check, I love being able to let loose in a read.

Somewhere between the first two, this is a restraining of excitement to form a concise, focused message with a motivational energy.

The most challenging yet most rewarding reads for me. I love reaching that emotional level in a performance.

Now...if you're looking for a deep voiced movie trailer guy voice...that's not me! :)

Commercials, Narration, Audiobooks, Corporate Promos, Telephone Services (IVR) and more.

Let me create an original character for your Animation or Videogames. Check out my multiple demos featuring my many voices and characters.

I'm a full-time NY based voice actor with a flexible schedule to guarantee a friendly, professional experience.

My fully equipped, professional recording studio guarantees a great finished product.

I was initially concerned about tackling an audio book—a project that requires so much time and feedback—with an actor long-distance, and with someone I’d never met face-to-face. James Lorenz made it easy for me.
James owned the project from start to finish. He brought good ideas to the table that made the end result better, helped set up a system for sending big audio files back and forth, took my email comments and without a blink incorporated my ideas into his performances, and never hesitated when I asked to him redo something.
James’s voice sounds great, and the sound quality of his recordings are at least as good if not better than the other audio books I have on my bookshelf.
James was a pro at every turn. I would recommend James without hesitation for your voice acting or voiceover needs.

James did a fantastic job creating a voice over for our "initial launch" video. We are very picky and as such we dealt with many other voice over actors until we finally found James. Working with James was easy and enjoyable. He responded quickly, was available to meet via Skype, provided several alternative readings to key parts of our script (a couple of which we actually went with) and overall just did amazing work. We are very pleased with the outcome and will definitely use James again for future work.
