My Voice Experience

I am trying to convince someone that I can do voice overs this is my first formal attempt I have been a musician for over thirty years.I have learned much about using my voice as a singer over the years I have developed a knack for doing many different voices and dialects authentically and I have fooled more than one person with this ability on the phone including close friends and family.

My Training

I have been recording and performing live for many years.
I have been a private music teacher .My Band Bluesmill recorded an album entitled Gonna Take a long time on the New Moon Label In 1996 while it got no real air play it has sold moderately well and still does internationally internationally I have posted this link because their is A review By Bob Gottlieb of American music there http://www.artistdirect.com/nad/store/artist/album/0,,880999 I only want to illustrate that my many years as a singer has taught me to use my voice effectively.

My Studio Equipment

I have a custom built PC recording set up with plenty of power and speed have an audigy 2Z platinum plus sound card custom built tube driven mic preamps, excellent recording software and can render a project into whatever format necessary.Have a brand new Black max mic and access through my contacts int the recording field to just about anything I would ever need .

Additional Skills

I'll tell you right now up front that I have never made a dime as a voice over talent I know however that given a shot I will not disappoint.I am highly skilled at PC recording techniques have good speaking skills under stand rhythm and cadence and timing can edit add effects or create any background sound effects or music plus as singer all these years I have learned how to use my voice and can imitate many artist so it's no giant leap for me to use these talents when speaking.
I believe this is something I was meant to do and I believe I am ready to prove it.
I am not seeking fortune or fame I just want A shot Hey if you don't like what you hear you will be out nothing.
I know I can produce a good finished product quickly given the opportunity and at a very reasonable price I am not looking to become rich but I would really like a chance to prove myself.
