Reece Ristau

Deep, hip, edgy, inviting, versatile, genuine.

Voice Description

I do things a bit differently than other vocal professionals.

My income is from my investments and businesses, so, I actually do this as a hobby that I'm passionate about. It's a great release from the stress of the executive, entrepreneurial life.

To that end, I focus on quality over quantity, as I don't have time to do this very often.

So, I'm picky about who I work with but if I choose to work with you, on your project, I guarantee your COMPLETE satisfaction with my work or you simply don't pay me a dime and I take away the lessons to fine tune my talent for the next project.

I don't beat around the bush. I've been doing this for quite some time. I don't claim to be the best, but I know I have a very valuable, highly refined talent.

I'm a professional singer with a background in opera and nearly a lifetime of classical training. This has been an ideal foundation for developing my speaking voice.

Call me, so you can hear my voice and have me try out what you have in mind.

I'm very versatile, so I may very well be a great fit for your project.

If not, you'll save us both some valuable time by simply spending a few minutes with me on the phone so we know, right up front, whether we'd be a good fit for each other.
