Jeff Silvers

Warm, Real, Friendly, Guy Next Door, Natural

Voice Description

I have a mature and personal voice that is easily interpreted as real and natural (the guy next door). I have a voice that people trust and relate to, in real life, and as someone who can tell a great story. I'm also a true professional - with precision and style for those business projects or corporate videos. I've spoken on a number of topics ranging from fundamental success principles, effective listening & communication, building & winning relationships, etc.

My training includes acting classes (along with a strong desire to enroll in other workshops - both theatre and film), script reading as well as character development.

"Jeff's clients enjoy the natural warmth, friendly, and smoothness of his reads. If you're searching for professional narration or someone with a warm and natural delivery, Jeff is the right choice for commercials, websites, video, IVR and on-line learning."

My Voice Experience

My first voiceover opportunity was in 1985, when the Chancellor's office contacted me to narrate a University documentary. I'd like to say the rest is history, but I'm still waiting to write that chapter.

Since 1985, I've completed a number of IVR/Voicemails, narrations, commercials and corporate presentations.

My recent projects & clients include:

- ADP Context
- America's Bra Corporation
- Bailey, Banks and Biddle Jewelry
- FHN Health System
- Helix Funds
- IngeniumCo
- Solitaire Solutions

My Training

I recently completed the Sound Advice / Big House Casting & Audio voiceover training by Kate McClanaghan in Chicago. This was a fabulous experience, with a reinforced emphasis on training principles and techniques.

I've also completed the DePaul University voiceover program - an intense 8 week session on VO training.

Over the past 20 years, I've had frequent public speaking engagements with Fortune 500 company's, preparing and announcing the national sales awards presentations.

Given the above and my background in public speaking, I have more flexibility and voice strength which has contributed to my development as a voiceover talent.

I've also completed acting, script reading as well as character development classes/workshops.
