Testimonials

Blood,

I saw that you have testimonials on your voices.com page and I wanted to offer up my own. I'm not in the habit of giving unsolicited recommendations to people, but I was really happy with my experience with you and I wanted to make sure to give you a good reference.
So my testimonial would be as follows:

I was doing a very large and complex radio project, and I was amazed at how quickly BloodDeVay was able to understand everything and get down to business. He grasped the project in half the time that it took others.
His voice work was very strong, and even more-so, consistent. His experience really shows. I would strongly and enthusiastically recommend BloodDeVay.

I am sure I can't plug you even more than I already do wherever I go, but I'll try... You've got to be the next Viggo Mortensen: and already are in my eyes. You will get ratings so big from me that the next thing you know you will have Peter Jackson pounding on your door.

A strong voice that can prick up your audience’s ear and send shivers down their spine. Simon DeVay recorded and produced a Radio event advert for myself, with very little guidance he managed to produce some fantastic work. He was open to easily make changes to it, and it was completed both efficiently and professionally. Highly recommended to anyone who requires a strong English male voice, that has depth and clarity.

Although I'm only an amateur DJ, I'm sure that liking what I hear counts as a testimonial. Simon DeVay's voice is captivating to say the least. When he talks, I listen. He has a commanding quality in the way he articulates his words and the strength of his voice makes people take notice. A perfect example of this is a validation from my son. I was broadcasting my radio show when Simon's advert for the MMORPG came on. My son (who can sometimes be oblivious to things going on around him), was walking through the room and stopped in his tracks. He looked at me and said... "Wow, he's really good!" Now, if anyone knew my son, they would know that his comment was purely spontaneous and sincere.

I only see great things happening to Simon in his career ventures and I know that anyone with the good sense to hire him would be doing themselves a huge favour.

To Whom it may concern:
My name is Mike Ikard, I have worked with several online radio stations, and was formerly an Executive Director of a corporation who hired talent to produce television, and radio ads. I have paid a great deal for these adds, and found the quality rarely has anything to do with the price paid for voice, or acting work. Big names will always pull in more recognition in television, yet most voice recording does not require the name recognition and has been proven to be more cost effective for the customer, as radio can reach a much broader audience for your marketing dollar. I recommend Simon "Blood" DeVay, for voice work for one reason: he is simply a natural when it comes to recording. His talent speaks for itself. Whether money is a consideration or not, Simon will deliver quality, professional voice work, in a timely fashion. Hire him today if you want the best. Please feel free to contact me at Heyoo@me.com for details of my business references, and any other information you may have about Mr DeVay's voice work. Simply said. It is phenomenal! I consider it an honour to write a reference for a true professional.
Sincerely,

Mike Ikard

Hello. This comment is from a female perspective.

I hear Simon when he is DJ, and have seen and heard Simon on YouTube. Also, I have heard his commercial for Big Industries in association with Entropia Universe contest commercial. It is immediately obvious that his voice is very attractive to heterosexual females. But, his voice is also much more then that.

For me his voice has wide appeal - it is rugged and masculine. I can hear clearly what he is saying. He has an appealing voice that can move from action-hero to doting father or playing the part of a gangster. He can sound playful, or vulnerable and all things in-between that he wants to sound like. His voice is magnetic and compelling. Simon has good mastery over his vocal cords. His voice has variety and he emotes well. I find him very convincing and believable. He could sell me anything! :-)
Having seen him on YouTube I would also enjoy seeing him on TV :-)
