Joe Smith

low, warm, resonant, melodious, trustworthy

Voice Description

I have a low, warm, resonant, melodious, compelling and trustworthy voice that draws you in and holds you. Producers and professionals have described it as "liquid gold" and compared it to actors ranging from Sam Elliot and Mike Rowe to Morgan Freeman and James Earl Jones, but it is my own unique instrument that I will use to play your song with perfect pitch. I range easily from the voice of God to a hard-working farmer or rancher, from the friendly guy next door to the smooth calm of a late night jazz DJ, and many points between.
