John Lee

Sincere/Believable/Guy Next Door/Mature/Character

Voice Description

Believable, Sincere, Amiable, Polished, Guy Next Door, Mature, Experienced Announcer, Credible Actor, Smooth, Dad. Those are all ways to describe John Lee. But he could just as easily be described as Funny, Witty or Wacky. Soft-Sell, High-Energy, Authoritative, or Comedic, John has the skills to pull it off! He is an extremely versatile Voice-Over talent and On-Camera Spokesperson. His natural delivery is Warm, Smooth, Friendly and Sincere-perfect for Classy, Elegant reads. He is expert in Conversational style reads. But, John has also voiced many High-Energy automobile and sale spots. He has the ability to "amp-up" the excitement without sounding annoying and grating. John works extremely well in dialogue with other talent (whether they are present for the session or parts are cut wild) and is a fine Voice Actor. He is regularly hired to be the "Young Dad" or the "Husband." He can show as much or as little emotion as the part calls for. John's 30-plus years experience as an Announcer, TV Host and Voice-over talent really shines on Narrations and Training Videos. His inflection and enunciation combined with his unique ability to understand the script and convey that to the listener/viewer keeps long-standing clients coming back. His Pleasant, Friendly, style works extremely well on Phone Message systems and In-Store Announcements. John is also quite good at Comedy type scripts. He has excellent Comedic Timing and is very Witty. He also makes a great Straight Man for your comedic script. If your project requires Ad-lib skills, he is the right guy for the part. He can sound very Mature if requested but also sounds very youthful especially when he's in his 18 year old "Surfer Dude" mode.
"People just like John Lee's voice. It has an appealing sound quality that is easy to listen to. I don't care what he is selling I enjoy listening because he always makes it sound really good" -Andrew Laurie, 110 Management, Los Angeles
