I have gone to Leonard for various VO work on Prankster projects.

There are two reasons I continue to keep his contact info close by:
· The professional manner in which he works to the final deliverable. He communicates effectively to understand the vision for the final VO and nails it – and he works with ease to get the vision/final VO correct.

· His ability to infect multiple emotional qualities to the VO. He can nail a wide range of VO needs, from a “grounded, voice of authority” in a piece to a “fringe cartoon caricature”.

It is an added bonus that his years of sound producing also give him the ability to deliver a finished piece with effects, music bed, etc. This extra value is priceless. I highly recommend working with Leonard for your audio needs.

Leonard Nelson is a vocal artist with the rare talent to not only bring your prose to life, but to give your characters a three dimensional life of their own. My own book - Tales of The Blue Meanie - is a memoir that flashes back to the hazy crazy days of the Sixties. And the voice he gave the characters were so right on that I imagined they were sitting next to me, talking and laughing about those unforgettable times. I look forward to working with Leonard on other projects in the future. I whole-heartedly recommend him to all authors and audiobook publishers who are looking for a marvelous artist of the microphone... Allan Cole, 3-18-2014. www.acole.com

Working with Leonard Nelson was a true pleasure and productive experience. In addition to tremendous work on his voice over for our educational video, his script work, production, and editing abilities were top notch.

He was responsive and accessible, produced all sound including voice, music and sound effects...the result was an outstanding effort! His professional approach to developing script, video production and mixing allowed us to remain under budget and on time.
