Highlights

My father used to say about me, "Once he learned to talk we couldn't get him to shut up!" Only a slight exaggeration. I do sleep from time to time! My elementary school report cards had consistent comments from my teachers about my ability to "read well out loud". Eventually I was drawn into the wild and woolly world of Canadian radio. I started out as a "DJ" back in the dark ages of 45's and LP's. Over the years I gradually morphed from an on air personality (both live and voice tracked) to a commercial copywriter. Nevertheless I maintained a love of using my voice to communicate anything I could read. My most recent employer was Vista Radio in Prince George, B.C. where I wrote commercial scripts for local businesses and was called upon as a voice talent across the company's 50 radio stations from B.C. to Ontario.
I should also mention that I have three grandchildren (girl 12, boy 10, and girl 7) who are willing read for jobs requiring a child's voice. The oldest has the best read and ability to act but the younger two are willing to try.

Experience

I've worked in the radio industry since the late 60's (yes I was a teenager then). My career has taken me from all night shifts on Top 40 stations to morning show duties on small town and big town country stations. I've voiced literally thousands of radio commercials over that time. My style is generally a warm, mature (40 to 70 year old), smooth male read but I can push things around and do "hard sells" if needed.

I'm available for SKYPE directed sessions at skype id: george.krahn
I can provide audio in all major formats - ie .mp3, .wav, .aiff

Albert Menzies

George is not only a talented vocal artist with years of experience to draw from, but he is also a genuinely kind and caring professional who wants to see your project succeed. He happily took the time necessary to talk with me and to listen to my needs and suggestions in order to produce exactly what I wanted and was glad to offer suggestions and thoughts of his own. I would highly recommend George to anyone.
