Ken Kurtis

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I suck at accents, dialects, impersonations, and charactarizations. But hey, I'm always willing to give it a shot. Maybe you'll be pleasantly suprised (me too) . . .

My Voice Experience

My entire backrgounbd is live radio and live (and live-on-tape) TV. I've got a nice "real" sounding voice that can be used to "sell" whatever it is your project requires.

My Training

Graduate of Northwestern University
Cut my radio teeth at WNUR-FM
First pro job was summer fill-in at WDOV
8-year radio career following that
Various markets ranging from Vidalia, GA to New York City
Lots of TV experience
Commercials & infomercials
Weekend weatherman for KABC-TV many moons ago
Science/nature reporter for Life & Times (KCET)

My Studio Equipment

Xenyx 1204 mixer
Shure SM7B or AKG D5 mics
Bose speakers to reference playback
Audacity recording software
WAV or MP3 files delivered

Additional Skills

Due to my live broadcasting background, I work quickly. And because I do this for a living and don't have to have a "real" job to sustain my performing career, unless I'm booked for something else, I'm generally accessible (call me on my cell phone) and can deliver finished product to you in a fairly short time frame.
