Steve Ward

Creative, Warm, Friendly, Mature, Wry, Offbeat

Voice Description

People describe my voice as warm, friendly, "like everyman". It's sometimes compared to William Schallert, the actor.

What can I do for you? I can bring life to your project with a variety of creative vocal interpretations. Want it read straight? I can do it. Want a character? Tell me what you're looking for and I'll find it. Not sure what you want? Shoot me the script and I'll take a crack at it. I love a challenge and we both win when I come up with something great!

Need someone to write the copy? I've got that covered too. Just send a fact sheet and I'll knock out the script for you.

My Voice Experience

I've worked in major market radio doing lots and lots of spot announcements. I've also done voice overs for industrial projects, web media, and many, many in-store and on-hold messages for Muzak and PlayNetwork.

My Training

I studied Communications at the University of Washington in Seattle and spent several years as an on-air radio talent. I later got involved with two commercial music companies and voiced many projects for them over a period of 20+ years. In addition, I have an acting background and my wife owns and operates a talent agency.

My Studio Equipment

You don't need much to lay down voice tracks these days. I have an ElectoVoice RE/27 microphone with a MicPort Pro USB preamp that allows me to voice straight to hard drive. I use Cool Edit Pro to record and mix tracks, and I listen back on Tannoy professional studio monitors.

Additional Skills

What about the brand?

Sonic branding is all the buzz these days. Retailers are looking for every edge they can get, and using custom in-store music and messaging is a great way to separate your brand from the pack. I understand this. For over 20 years I've been creating branded music programs for major restaurant and retail chains. If you have a need for truly creative in-store music and messaging, let's talk.
