Ralph Gardner

Friendly, soothing, mature comforting, resonant

Voice Description

I have a friendly, warm and conversational delivery with a deep resonance that lends itself to various venues. It's typically classified as bass-profondo. I possess a story-telling quality that provides a depth along with various emotional dynamics to support different levels of dramatic tension as well as the warmth and clarity that a narration would require. With these voice qualities I can bring variances in approaches to commercials that would include humor on the one end to announcer on the other, yet maintaining a reachable, conversational quality. And I'm also able to deliver the required level of a smooth, professional speech for corporate presentations, and technical and medical narrations.

My voice is one you'll believe and trust
