Highlights

I GUARANTEE CONNECTION

The opinions of my clients are more important than any "hype" I can say about myself. Here's the latest from a recent project.

"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.

After (6) months with voices.com I became a Voices Top 100 (heart me or favorite me if you like) I've been given100% FIVE STAR RATINGS and a great hit rate from auditions. I firmly believe Luck is a product of Hard Work, Clear Goals and a Passion for what you do.

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.

While the standard tags are how this gig works - if you want copy on my sound I'd say:

"MIDWESTERN REAL WITH A BARITONE FEEL." (Like a '77 DeVille)

"SOOTHING AND STRONG" (Like a VO Hot Toddy)

"PLEASANT and PRESENT" (without the Weak in the Speak)

I am a full time Voice Actor and professionally trained Theater, Film Actor.

Tonally described as:

Business, Believable, 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.

Or Kind of Funny Midwestern (If you need:)

Here's the way I have learned it:

My Success is working with my clients to understand how they CONNECT and ensuring I embody that - to cut through the noise of our impenetrable, busy and impatient lives so that people take ACTION. Without ACTION or IMPACT all we do is nothing but NOISE.

My goal a FIERCE and GUARANTEED ACHIEVEMENT of CONNECTION with every type of copy style message or campaign. Armed with a cutting edge state of the art broadcast quality private studio, the ability to record and QUICKLY produce ready to air spots is what a Full Time Voice Professional brings.

All auditions are not just for the sound and tone to determine if I'm the best fit for your project 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 was the audience so combined with the Artistic elements brings a unique clarity to communicate technically difficult language and business concepts.

Finally as a Father to a young daughter named Claire 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 his work . And most importantly - with any client in this business - I've never only been hired once. As a Professional I have a method and process to how I price a job. I believe staying consistent and fair from the first job to the fifth job builds a relationship. A Low Ball Quote gets you a short game. Value is only defined by continued reward for delivering it.

WHAT I HAVE LEARNED ABOUT VALUE

Ultimately time teaches more about delivering Value. Attitude is intangible, and Confidence isn't something you learn. It's something you earn with commitment, hard work and more energy than you ever thought you had.

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

Ahmad Al-Awadi Creative Director, Moving Blue Studios

Bryan is a solid voice talent, takes direction very well. Full-bodied, rich tone, with clean delivery captured well. Pays really good attention to detail.”

Grant Rutledge, Audio Editor, Sound Designer, BroadScope Media

« We really enjoyed working with Bryan. In addition to his great voice and strong experience in voicing, he also proposed us to make a technical test before the session and was very pro active regarding the script we gave him to propose better alternatives and to try different versions. Kind, patient and professional, we warmly recommand you to work with him. Just few extra words : he understands very fast the client’s needs and is always on time, that is something valuable in music and studio production.»
