Our creative team has curated a list of some of the iconic seasonal voices to show how voices can be used this time of year to put anybody in the holiday spirit.

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through Voices.com,
our team was busy thanking our talent. The list was quite long.
The clients posted their voice over jobs with care,
in hopes that voice talent would soon be there.
With microphones nestled in their stands,
Visions of new voice over projects sang in their heads.
Oh, where would we be without all of you?
Matching projects with voices, making dreams come true.
We wish you a season that is merry & bright
Happy Holidays to all, and to all a good night!
