Michael Schwalbe

Rich, Conversational Baritone & Character Specialist

Voice Description

My primary speaking voice is a rich bass/baritone. This gives your IVR, corporate narration, or commercial the warm, believable, friendly, relatable and conversational tone you're looking for. Or, the gravelly, masculine, serious weight you're looking for. Or the intense, high-energy, powerful announcer you're looking for. Or whatever you're looking for -- one client called me a "vocal chameleon" and that's pretty accurate.

I have a very versatile character voice, lending itself easily to dramatic, powerful roles as well as whimsical and cartoony parts. My background in theatre and drama allows me to convey the emotion in your script accurately and authentically.
