John Tambascio

Friendly, guy next door, down to earth

Voice Description

I'm the guy that you can tell from hearing, has been a lot of places and done a lot of things, but is approachable and friendly. I can be a wiseguy among friends, but not to the point where people are insulted or turned off.

My "sound" has been described as a mashup between Don LaFontaine, Gary Owen and Sam Elliot.

For commercial work I can keep it light but get the point across. The blue collar, "guy next door" type is a specialty.

I've done characters and characterizations, so don't be afraid to ask me if you need something special or if a character needs to sound more "New Yawk".

My Home Base

Spring, Texas, United States

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

After living in Germany for six years and traveling extensively on the continent, I can do character voices, such as a German or French guy in such a way that a listener can understand the message. As a child, I was cared for by immigrant Grandparents so that both parents could work. This experience gave me a storehouse of accents which can be called up for your project.

I natively speak unaccented English.

Need Rednecks or "Southern Americans"? No problem. I have lived in Texas since 1979. Check out my demo page.

I take direction well and get results for your clients that sell products and ideas.

My Voice Experience

Over the course of my career, I have voiced radio and TV spots in the metro Cleveland, Akron, Columbus and Washington D.C. markets. This gypsy, vagabond life has given me a wealth of experience that I routinely call upon in my voiceover work.

My Training

I graduated from the Defense Information School (DINFOS) which is where military broadcasters are trained.

I've also attended Bettye Zoller's workshops on the business of voiceover work.

Dan O'Day's voiceover seminars with Nancy Wolfson and David Lawrence.

My Studio Equipment

I have a dedicated studio with iMac computers to do digital production. For software, it's Pro Tools 8 with Source Connect. There's a collection of Shure mikes and a Rode NTG-2 for getting the right sound that absolutely matches your project's needs. Of course, all recordings are done in an acoustically isolated room.

Additional Skills

I am able to do digital editing and add music tracks and special effects as needed to your projects. I have a royalty free music library.
