Voice Description

▶ Contact John directly: JohnCrrll@gmail.com, (512) 745-2636.

There are a lot of voice actors out there, so you may ask yourself why should you hire me? Here's why--I take personal interest in my clients and their projects, I want to develop a great, long-term relationship, and I will deliver a superior product. I'll be here in a year or later when you need pick-ups, I am continuously training, developing my skills, and keeping up with current trends. I'm a professional, I take direction, and I'm enjoyable & easy to work with. There are a lot of voice actors out there, but there's only one of me!

I can deliver whatever style or genre you need for your specific copy! Whether you need a fun contemporary performance or an empathetic yet positive tone, when you hire me, you can expect dedication, enthusiasm and professionalism!

I have a versatile vocal range and can perform warm and deep baritone for narration, young and energetic to knowledgeable and appealing for commercial and promos. I can perform a multitude of characters for animation and video games, from teenagers to seniors and everywhere in-between--all grounded in reality with specific acting choices (not just a "funny voice").

I am always adding new dialects to my repertoire and can perform Standard British, Scottish, German as well as many regional dialects throughout the United States. I have used these dialects numerous times in voice over, stage and film.

On a final note, all voiceover talent spend an enormous amount of time, energy and money for their business. As an advocate to promote fair market rates for all VO talent, please look at GVAA Rate Guide for fair industry rates: http://bit.ly/2rpksQQ
