Voice Description

Find me on the web at www.mikebrattonvoice.com, call (773) 343-9383, or email studio@mwbproductions.com


From the audition to the finished product- I treat every aspect of the process with professionalism and care. I love what I do and clients say it shows. You will get exactly what you want, when you want it, if not before. I’m highly directable, and thrive in a live directed session setting. What makes you happy is what makes me happy.


Mike’s commercial clients have included McDonalds, Ask.com, First National Bank, Vonage, Florida Power and Light, BP Gas, and the list goes on and on.

Promo Clients include Fox Business Network, Nickelodeon, NickToons, NickSports, TeenNick, MTV, CBS, ABC, Jimmy Kimmel Live, FuelTV, SpikeTV, TruTV, HGTV, GACtv, FX, Univision, and more…

Mike’s narration credits run the gamut from long form documentary and in-show narration ( Science Channel’s “Impossible Engineering”, SyFy’s “Heroes of Cosplay”, Fuse Network’s “Warped Roadies” and more ), to Corporate Narration ( Nissan, Twitter, Univision, Deltek, Choice Hotels, JDA, IDG, and more )


I have a real, engaging male voice, with an American Accent. I can do anywhere from Midwestern to Southwestern, with emphasis on Texas and Alabama, but can also handle a good Brooklyn, Jersey, or Chicago Southside accent when it’s called for. When your brand is in need of a voice that is versatile, unique, compelling, warm, and above all else, trustworthy and REAL, then you need not call anyone else but Mike. Be it a commercial, promo, movie trailer, documentary, an internet release, a product demo, a corporate piece for use internally or with clients, or even your company's automated telephone attendant, I have the experience and versatility to bring your words to life. I'm Mike Bratton.
