Conversational, Real, Upbeat, Driven, Motivational
"Andy Taylor is a born story teller. Regardless of the copy – live announce or video narration - he takes audiences on a journey, always delivering desired IMPACT through an innate understanding of each read's unique tone. With his original style, he consistently conveys the STORY behind each script, rather than simply punctuating WORDS on a page -- a rare gift among 'announcers' in sport. His talent is his voice, his authenticity. Include his versatility, professionalism and ability to effortlessly adapt under the pressure of voicing the largest attended annual sporting event in the world...and you know why Andy has been a valuable member our team as the "Voice of the US Open" for nearly 15-years."
- Michael Fiur / Executive Producer - US Open Tennis Championships
"Once again WOW! You are a master of your craft!...I have to tell you that I really liked how skillfully you changed the text of the narration. Everything fits just perfectly and flows seamlessly."
- Rade Vujicic / President - 911 Interpreters, Inc.
"For the past year and a half, Andy Taylor has been the voice behind our successful television campaign that has resulted in Don Wessel Honda of Springfield being named the number one new car dealer in southwest Missouri...Andy is very valuable for his professionalism, quick turnaround, and creative input.

My Voice Experience
We all have a unique voice. Over the years, my individual sound has become my business. From my studio in Boston, I creatively team with partners and clients across the globe producing internet video content, broadcast commercials for radio and television, special-event vignettes, in-stadium sports features, instructional videos, podcast production, audiobooks and more.
Outside of the studio, I lend my voice and personality to premier tennis events world-wide - including the Olympic Games, the U.S. Open Tennis Championships in New York, the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha, the Qatar Total Open, and the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells. A huge game show fan, you can even find me on-stage as the announcer for the "Price is Right, Live!"
I take great pride in being reliable under pressure, easy going and easy to direct - on mic, on camera or on stage. While truly fortunate to be a part of many high-profile events and commercial productions, I humbly believe there is no project "too small." Relationships and the artistic journey of each individual project are my motivations. Narcissism is trivial and uninteresting.
As a preferred non-union talent, I enjoy the flexibility of working directly with creative partners and voice seekers, relating one-on-one with product owners, service providers and event coordinators to over-deliver on each partner's expectations. Truly listening to a voice-seeker and event-host's vision is crucial. Creative collaboration, mandatory. Delivering on that overall vision together, incredibly rewarding.
I retired from radio in 2011 after working in broadcasting for over 20-years. From 2005 to the day I retired, my morning show in Springfield, Missouri spent six consecutive years as the top-rated morning show in all of Southwest Missouri, finishing with a 19.0 share (P25-54) in the Spring of 2011.
I spent two decades relating directly with an audience, recorded countless commercials, and hosted thousands of events. That daily broadcast - focused on entertaining families and compassionate community service - gave me boundless tools that I've been able to apply with voiceover, audio production, marketing, problem solving and creative collaboration.
My Studio Equipment
Sennheiser MHK416, Adobe Audition
With "LIVE" voice-over and on-camera emcee experience, through large scale events like the U.S. Open to emceeing smaller company functions...I completely understand what it's like to have personality under pressure, with immediate deadlines; and how important it is to sound natural, remaining conversational under stress.
Ultimately, like anything else, the voiceover / voiceseeker business is all about relationships. I am here to perform a voiceseeker's vision and professional expectation. I demand excellence from myself, delivering on that expectation, while having a good time doing it!
