Brian was superb. He nailed the script, provided valuable suggestions and recommended additional resources. He was happy (and quick) to make a few adjustments too. I highly recommend him and would definitely work with him again.

Testimonials

Brian ranks without a doubt among the most skilled, most personable, and best-sounding narrators in the industry. He handles every audiobook with extreme care, moving through each with astounding efficiency and thoroughness, while consistently earning only the highest praise from listeners. In our ample experience working with Brian, every project he touches turns to gold. Anyone who has the good fortune to work with him is bound to return again and again, as we do.

Echo Point Books & Media

Brian Arens is a phenomenal narrator: clear and compelling with a large tonal range. Some of the content we produce at Spokn is quite complicated, and Brian has a rare ability to 'get' how to narrate dense and complex text in a way that listeners find clear and engaging. Beyond his voice talents, he is a pleasure to work with: reliable, responsive, professional, committed to producing great quality work, and flexible when our needs change. We've worked with him over 100 pieces of content and have been very pleased each time - we look forward to working with him on many more.

Spokn

Brian Arens has become my go-to voiceover artist for all of the animations I create at SMUD. He nails the perfect style of voiceover we want every time, providing a warm and friendly yet professional tone. He has also quickly become my favorite voiceover artist I’ve worked with in my career with his lightning fast turnaround times and flexibility. With the nature of my work I sometimes get requests to reword things at the very last stage of the project, sending me into panic mode at the eleventh hour, but I know I can rely on Brian to respond quickly and cheerfully to save the day. Going through the process of finding someone, waiting for the final product, having to give direction, then waiting some more used to be such a drain on my time. Now, working with Brian I can stay focused on the visuals and trust that the voiceover will be delivered quickly, flawlessly, and cheerfully.
