The nice guy is the coolest guy in the room!

Voice Description

There's a warmth to Steve's voice that's unique. Not just friendly, warm, conversational and real, but confident and trustworthy.

Whether delivering a human interest promo for a TV affiliate as he's done for KARE11 in Minneapolis, WZZM13 in Grand Rapids or KMTV in Omaha, to edgy network promos for CNN, comfortable reads for HBO/Cinemax Asia, or playful voice-overs for Disney Channel, to commercials for US Bank and Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Steve provides a wide range of styles and emotions.

From tough, to warm, to sexy, to upbeat fun. Too good to be true? Steve's repeat clients are happy that it's true.

With decades of experience as a professional voice-over actor, STEVE LAWSON has been heard as the voice behind many of America's top rated brands; in commercials, promos and narration.

Steve's style has been described as warm, friendly and real. With extra emphasis on the "real." Steve is believable, trustworthy, that friend just down the street. The guy you listen to because he sounds like he's confident about his subject matter, and honest.

Steve's recent work for CNN , Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Weber illustrate an energetic, ambitious voiceover style, while his work for Deloitte and Johnson Control exhibit a trusted, "real-guy" performance.
