In all my years in radio I've heard a lot of voices but Charley Barnes has THE voice. He has the voice that every broadcaster wishes they had. I've never heard anyone better and have always told anyone who would listen he is one of the best in the industry...period! (Brian Gary/Country Music Hall of Fame Broadcaster)

Everything is more epic when Charley Barnes says it. I wish he could narrate my entire life. If you want it said with authority, you need to hand your script to Charley Barnes. I’ve worked with him on tons of projects over the last 15 years and he is versatile, quick, professional and very reasonably priced. If I had his voice I only pray I would use it for good. (Andrew Manzano)

The Sound Tank

We have worked with Charley for over 10 years on numerous projects for approximately 50 TV programs, and there is a good reason for that. He has an incredible ability to merge into the script and bring it to life. He doesn't just read it- he lives it. If he sees a way to deliver a line with a different emphasis, he does it, as compared to a straight read through by other voice talents we have used. He makes an effort to understand the project, so he delivers what is needed the first time. Just love working with him, he is simply the best. (Jon May, Executive Producer - HorseTVToday, LLC./HorseFlicksTV)

Charley is awesome! His voice on our Rage In The Cage spots made the events sell out! Powerful! Easy to work with, fast turnaround, and a true professional. (Mark McKay/President McKay Productions, Inc. Tucson, AZ)

As a commercial producer/director I have a voice in my head that reads VO’s on paper to me. So often, that voice is actually Charley Barnes. His ability to deliver with variety - deep and authoritative, radio announcer hype man, movie trailer voice, rich corporate confidence, and more - keeps his talents front of mind for my company. We have worked with Charley Barnes numerous times and every time we get the same great service, top quality deliveries, and Charley’s undying commitment to get it right for us. I suppose we should ask him for re-reads just to test him on his promise but we don’t need to fix what he delivers. (Josh Pies-Producer/Director)
