Highlights

Brian Monk is a real, edgy, intimate, honest storyteller. Twenty years of live hosting, announcing, and singing as an underground rocker has left its mark on Monk's voice, giving it a naturally melodic gravitas. His rugged baritone is well-traveled, trustworthy, believable and altogether gripping. It can be intimate and inviting, or intense and commanding. At times poetic, at times powerful, Monk's voice is experienced, smoky, warm, authoritative, charismatic, intelligent, educational, informative, genuine, caring, compassionate, soothing, explosive, articulate, tough, worldly, sexy, kind, and cool. And he plays a great cowboy. ISDN accessible.

Service Description

A sublime voice in the world of voice over is much like a pretty face in the world of on-screen acting; neither one amounts to much without interpretive skills. Although the right casting is critical, the voice itself is rarely the star of any production. It is simply a tool used to get your point across. This is where I shine. I pride myself in being able to take two-dimensional words on a page and imbue them with life; creating a rich, 3D, emotional experience for your audience. I endeavor to take my ego out of the way, listen to your direction, and allow that process to unfold.

I offer easy and fast delivery of high quality audio files.
