Zack Read

Professional, deep, smooth, gritty, offbeat

Voice Description

I will try my best to provide any sort of voice genre possible. My voice is naturally rather deep and masculine sounding. Whatever you are looking for I will give 110% as I am rather new at this, yet am very ambitious. I can do warm and deep with ease for all projects, gritty and dark if necessary, crisp and clear for those who prefer that modern electronic appeal.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

American accents without a doubt, east coast, west coast, midwest. Personalities are also easy so long as there are instructions as to the preference as far as excited, hyper-active, calm and cool, sexy and classy, etc.
I can also rap really well, for those of you marketing to the hip-hop/rap crowd.

My Voice Experience

I recently moved to San Francisco after graduating from college and majoring in English literature. I am articulate and well-spoken with a strong background in the writing-field. My day job currently allows for lots of personal interaction, and not a day goes by that someone does not comment on my voice.
I hear,
"Do you do radio?",
"Are you one of those voice-over guys?",
"Wow! You have a really deep voice, you should look into doing something with it."
People always have something to say about it, and I honestly did not think much of it until recently. I did my first professional voice-over last week for a restaurant called "Silvergreens", located in Santa Barbara, California. It is a short voice-over for the end of a commercial that is currently playing on local television in the Southern California area. Although I am not very experienced with voice-overs, I do have crisp sounding recording equipment in my home that I can use freely. I do not need studio time and am very capable of creating audio tracks and sending them via internet; this is actually how I recorded the "Silvergreens" commercial spot.

My Training

I graduated from Sonoma State University in May 2008 with my BA in English Literature.
I spent a couple semesters as a DJ and Radio personality for KSUN the SSU radio station.
I am very experienced with recording, as I have been making my own music for the past three years. Again, what I lack in experience, I most definitely make up in ambition, work-ethic, and personal drive. I am a very hard-working person and will do my absolute best to make the final product sound exactly the way you would like it.

My Studio Equipment

I have my own studio in my apartment.
I record on a MacBook with LogicPro and have access to an endless supply of effects and so on. My microphone is a Beringher B1 that I have connected to a PreSonus Firebox, as well as a PreSonus dual path BlueTube for compression and clarification. I have an ear for quality production sound and strive to make myself sound as professional as possible.

Additional Skills

I have excellent people skills and am motivated to show I am ready to work for you. Whatever type of project you have in store, I am anxious to show you what I can do. Also, because I am new to this, I imagine that I will work for a lower budget than most other individuals. I also work well under time-constraints, and because I have a studio in my home, I am always able to work on projects.
Thanks for your consideration.
