Tony Rizzo

Sophisticated, Characters, Approachable, Dramatic

Voice Description

‘Conversational…Authoritative…Non-announcery…Professional…Casual.’ These qualities, seen in most specs these days, describe my performance ability perfectly. I have a rich and textured quality and can deliver your copy with gravitas or as your 'ordinary' mature man. Whether you want sexy and smooth or fun and easy on the ears, I deliver what my clients want. Plenty of dialects and characters are in my quiver ready to wow you. My vocal quality is perfectly suited to represent business, conversational and smooth for industrials or presentations. Making your copy understandable, relatable, effective, and approachable is what I have been trained to deliver over the last several years at VoiceTrax, San Francisco. My mentors have been highly visible professional VO artists, booth directors, producers, and writers. My clients range from video game producers to radio and television producers.
