Testimonials

I highly recommend Michael Johnston as voice talent for your project. He is incredibly professional and talented. His work went above and beyond, he was dedicated to the project, flexible, creative, and did more than was required to make sure we were happy with the voice work. He had a very quick turnaround time and everything was high-quality: the sound levels and his performance were top notch.

Bottom line: Michael is an incredible actor and voice actor. I have never seen someone at his age with as much versatility in their voice, as much courage and dedication to their craft. There is nothing he can't do. As a coach, I recognize that spark that he has, that 'thing' that only hugely successful people have. I saw it the first time I met him.

Sunday Muse (Voice Actor/Coach, Greatbigvoices.com)

Michael has been my “Go-To” youthful voice for my voice over narration projects. Not only does he take direction well, but he goes beyond what I could even articulate, and communicates the emotion of the script unlike most I have listened to. In addition to having a great voice, the technical quality is immaculate. Microphone quality is great. No background noise, computer noise, echoes, etc. Top quality at every level. Very fast response times and willingness to re-record until it is exactly what I want (even though his first take is usually the last take). I would definitely recommend him.

Michael did an awesome job accommodating, interpreting and taking direction for his voice session. He acted and reacted like a seasoned voice talent. Rarely have I seen this type of maturity and ability displayed in such a young talent. We would definitely hire Michael again for our voice work. You should too.
