Steve Barrett

Strong, rich, warm, natural, expressive, energetic

Voice Description

Steve Barrett’s core voice is a rich, smooth resonant baritone that is clear, believable, and professional.

For commercial work, Steve’s softer side is soothing, caring, and comfortable, like a good friend or trusted uncle. For a medium sell, he sounds expressive, engaging, and persuasive. When a hard sell is in order, his compelling, powerful energetic presence is second to none.

For narrative work, Steve has the captivating, compelling sense of good storytelling to deliver a documentary, the articulate, dynamic focus to explain a corporate mission or instructional program, and the educated, mature command of diction to handle medical and scientific work comfortably.
