Dry, Soothing, Empathetic, Midwestern

Voice Description

I set up an account a few years ago with Voice 123, but due to commitments to my previous employer, I have't been able to devote any time to Voice 123. I have a versatile voice that may be best suited for public radio, though I have experience with adapting my voice to meet versatility required. It is best described as warm, soothing, and positive. It can be edgy and direct if required. I have a middle baritone voice that can do bass tenor and lower tenor voice work also.
