If you have any questions or just want to let me know what you're thinking about Call me. Let's talk. Best audition you could ever hope for is talking to who you hire before you hire them. Or read below. Because honestly the experiences of my clients are more important that any "hype" I can type about myself.

Here are a couple from 2019 and 2020

"Personable, professional, helpful, smart; and easy to work with. Bryan turned a script into a story with authenticity and swagger. When the session ended, I asked the client, "When can we do more?" The client extended his hand, smiled and said, "Great work!"

Roseanne Azarian
Copywriter
Mintz & Hoke

Or:

"I've had the pleasure of recording Bryan on numerous occasions, and he never fails to be a pro on every level. He's smart, articulate, funny and understands session dynamics extremely well.

As a VO talent, he has great range, is very adaptable at handling quick changes, alternative inflection suggestions and copy edits that might inundate a less polished voice actor. His sound is smooth, rich and natural and he can add or subtract elements of any of those when asked to do so.

Additionally, he brings the ability to understand the rhythm and flow of copy in a way that makes it not feel as if he's simply "reading words aloud". This is not a particularly easy trait to find, and it makes recording Bryan a welcome experience.

Don’t overlook his ability to collaborate, write and develop from rough concepts either. He is a master of written word as well. A complete professional end-to-end."

Tom Cusciotta
Partner
Six Speed

Or:
"Our team recently had the opportunity to work with actor and voice over artist Bryan Carmody. We chose Bryan from a fairly large pool of candidates due to the dynamic range and compelling style demonstrated in his portfolio. We were confident that he could give us the perfect read for our project, and we got the high quality voice over we expected.

However, what we didn't expect was how accommodating and supportive Bryan was throughout the whole process. His genuine interest in our piece was refreshing, and our video editor is still singing his praises around the office for delivering the files in a way that facilitated our work. His quick turnaround and constant communication allowed us to smoothly implement client feedback.

There are a lot of great voices out there, but Bryan is what every VO artist should aspire to be-- inspired, resourceful, and collaborative. We look forward to working with him in the future.

That being said you can find alot of my work on the web and on Vimeo - it's just my NAME. Pretty much that's what I go by...

I've built my Studio to the specs of the big Chicago Studios I've had the pleasure to work in. My Studio is built with only HIGH END Industry Standard equipment and I'm fully accessible for mic to mic studio to studio connection with SOURCE CONNECT STANDARD (bryancarmody) and SKYPE AUDIO (bryancarmody1) or PHONE PATCH . These ensure clients that prefer directed sessions can hear me as if they were sitting in my studio, which shares space with tools from Neumann, Sennheiser, Universal Audio, Manley, Yamaha, Argosy, Whisper Room Apple and other high end Industry Standard Tools.

I also truly give credit by being humbled and astounded by an amazing number of HIGHLY PROFESSIONAL CLIENTS AND CREATIVES that post great copy and a UNRELENTING COMMITMENT to their work and their words.ng

THE ALGORITHMS ARE:

Business, Believable, Real Person, Corporate, Conversational, Deep, Friendly, Natural, Professional, Confident, Authoritative. Informative, Announcer, Animated, Educational, Upbeat, Attractive, Warm, Genuine, Caring, Narrator, Knowledgeable, Sincere, Calming, High Energy, Amusing, Storyteller, Motivational Sophisticated, Warm, Clear, Professional, Instructive, Corporate, Kind, Funny and Midwestern.

All auditions are not just for the sound and tone but also a sample of professional grade, BROADCAST QUALITY production capabilities. You get the full package., I am a fully accomplished Audio Engineer and Producer and can provide Soundbeds and EFX as well as full radio audio imaging. I've produced audio for several large National Clients. References and sample work are available on request.


SOMETHING BUSINESS CLIENTS MIGHT WANT TO KNOW:

I bring a unique value proposition in the "Financial, Technical and Healthcare" arena due to a former 20 plus years in C-Level Corporate Business Development and Marketing in the Finance, Technology and Healthcare markets - I know your audience because I AM the audience. I've heard it done wrong. With your direction - I can make it sound right to you.

Finally as a Father to a young daughter I get a lot of practice that requires being both soothing yet authoritative in real time.

My Rates ALWAYS comes with a full guarantee of my work .As a Professional I have a method and process to how I price a job. A Low Ball Quote gets you a short game. Value is only defined by continued reward for delivering it.

Service Description

I'm typically compared to MIKE ROWE/SAM ELLIOT/TIM ALLEN/JON HAMM/ALEC BALDWIN.

I have full service capabilities - as an ASCAP licensed Musician I can provide background Music, Stingers, Jingles, Sound Design, or just that simple soothing loop of music under an IVR recording. Quote separate for those (is not included with my Remote Studio offering - Remote studio is for Broadcast quality voice only)

Have internet will deliver. Also able to collaborate with creative teams in a professional manner and have the experience to deliver content under pressure.

SPECIAL NOTE: I have a portable VO Rig that is a direct extension of my studio - so even if I'm on vacation or on the road I can be there for the unexpected, the "uhh oh" , or the "need it yesterday" situations. All I need is a good internet connection (which I take with me as well:)

PLEASE NOTE A SETUP FEE MAY BE APPLIED TO WORK REQUESTED ON VACATION OR WHILE TRAVELING AND WILL BE QUOTED BASED ON TIME NEEDED TO TREAT THE ROOM FOR PROPER ACOUSTICS. ASSESSED ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS

Testimonials

I've worked with Bryan Carmody for years. He's a pro. Takes direction very well and delivers a fine product.
Casting wise: He's your GUY. Regular guy... Dad guy... Cop guy... Funny guy... Announcer guy... Farmer guy... Husband guy... A Guy's guy.

David Lewis Creative Radio & VOX:Chicago Voicecasting

Bryan Carmody is absolutely amazing. Even though I'm thousands of miles away, but it feels like I'm actually sitting next to him. It's really convenient working with Bryan and I have no troubles at all getting my point across. He is a professional talent with years of experience, easily gets it, very intuitive, and can nail down a take from the first time. Also his performance is spot on - and my client agrees too ! It was a pleasure working with Bryan and I would definitely consider working with him again in the future ! - Ahmad
