Sincere, warm, energetic, southern, attitude.

Voice Description

My voice has been described as warm and fuzzy, deep, sexy, resonant, yet fun sounding with energy. Hard sell for car dealers, warm and sincere for funeral homes. Smooth and professional for presentations. Older person delivery or young to middle aged male. Should you need a "Santa" voice for upcoming projects, I feel I am the absolute BEST! I have a lot of range and capabilities and can also take direction well. I feel as if I am "the best kept secret" in voiceover acting! YOU can break out of the crowd with the bold voice of Karl Shannon.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

If you want down home, guy next door, I can do that. A professional sound with a hint of southern drawl. I also can offer a great "Santa Claus, "Droopy Dawg," an old gruffy football coach, an elderly southern gentleman, and Disney's "Goofy!" You want an Irish accent, I can do that as well. You need someone to breathe and talk like Darth Vader? Can do!

My Voice Experience

I've had the pleasure of using my voice for many things over my 37 year career. It has sold cars, Broadway shows, flowers, clothing, concerts, ice cream, furniture, even funeral home services! Each week, you can hear my voice on nearly 30 major college radio/satellite broadcasts as the guy telling you who is bringing you todays game or coaches show! I'm also the image voice of several radio and television stations across the country.

My Training

I have done acting over the years in local plays and productions and have worked with acting coaches to hone my voice over skills. Having a great voice is good, but you need to know how to use it. My acting and radio background have taught me how to use my voice, to best fit the voice over work situation.

My Studio Equipment

Neuman TLM 103 microphone, Rane VP12 Voice Processor, Cool Edit Pro with Tascam US-122 audio link to computer, Ebtech hum eliminator, Behringer MX9000 48 channel mixer, Orban Audicy workstation, AKAI DR8 Digital Hard Drive Recorder. I also have a website where I can post audio for download via FTP, or offer email of audio files.

Additional Skills

If you want someone who "doesn't sound like everyone else," a voice that can set your audio production apart from everyone else, you should give me a chance. Being in radio and television for over 37 years, I've heard people with great voices, but didn't know exactly how to put it to good use. I feel I am a professional voice actor voiceover artist and can stand out on your production.
