Reading poetry is not an easy job, and Howard's audition was perfect from the first read. He grasped the right rhythm, tone and spirit of the poem with amazing precision. It was a great vocal performance, and we would be delighted to work with Howard again.

Wonderful voice, excellent acting skills. Was less than 24 hours from posting job to approving final VO files. Highly recommend Mr. Ellison (it's not every day you find someone who can even give you 3 minutes straight of believable snoring).

Excellent work Howard! You delivered as promised and completed changes on time. We listened to at least 25 different voices-none of them interpreted the text as perfect as you did.

Absolutely the best. I can't rate Howard high enough in every category. Here you have a talented and passionate thespian - dedicated to his craft who has a wonderful rich voice a great mastery of evoke emotions and making the words come alive but also an excellent technician from his years working as a soundman with the BBC he has a great technical knowledge which supports everything else. I can't recommend him highly enough.
