My Voice Experience

“Steve, is that your voice I heard on ______?” Could be. I've voiced more than 22,126 commercials and narrations, (yes, I've done the math) so that blank could be filled with the name of any of a number of satisfied clients. That's good news for you, because I bring all of that expertise to your project today. Like an artist with dozens of colors on his palette; as a voiceover artist, I can choose from a wide variety of vocal styles and textures. Whatever is “just right” for your script. From “the Guy next door,” to “Movie Trailer guy” to “Friendly Announcer,” (and the less frequently requested “Annoying Announcer,”) I'll bring your script to life! Real. Versatile. Directable. Listen to my demo, then imagine what I could do with your project!
