John Grimes

Real, Cool, Edgy

Voice Description

A voice with gravitas, grit, energy, and sophistication. It's real, strong, cool, edgy, deep, tough, and low for commercials - Dennis Leary type reads with edge and adventure. I'm often booked for competitive products like sports teams. The "Voice of God" is another style I provide to clients.

Need a chiiling, creepy, and scary read for a commercial, promo, or Halloween? I do those too!

A professional, calm, and smooth voice for presentations and narration.
