Voice Description

If you're looking for conversational, confident, warm, friendly, real, or wry...you've found the voice. Richard Sabean can easily be the guy next door, your buddy, dad, cool guy, wise sage, the voice of authority, or that announcer guy. He can deliver a wide range of performances – in addition to an array unique character voices.

Since the mid 90's Richard has been lending his interpretation to scripts for countless projects. Now, more than a dozen years later he has amassed an extensive resume of clients. He has lent his voice to Gillette, Frito Lay, Panasonic, US Olympic Committee, Cablevision and can currently can be heard nationally for Nicorette, Ronzoni, Honest Tea, the NBA, Jet Dry and on countless websites, worldwide.

His repertoire includes commercials, narrations (of any length), promos, animation, trailers, video games, audio books, presentations, live reads, websites and even the occasional on camera project.

In Richard's former life, he was an award winning creative director with some of the world's top ad agencies, so, if you need creative help developing your concept, don't hesitate to ask. He's had more than his share of experience on that front. He was actually featured in the two episodes of the premier season of the unscripted TV show, "The Pitch" on AMC.
