Highlights

Matt Barnes is the voice actor that will prioritize getting you the recording you need as quickly and efficiently as possible, and at the highest quality the industry has to offer!

But it isn't just the work ethic that makes Matt a voice actor worth choosing for your project; clients have described Matt's voice as...

Informative, Real, Enthusiastic, Attentive, Calming, Educational, Entertaining, and Inspirational.

Matt has made voice over work his full time job since 2013, which means you'll have his full attention for your project for the entire time you're working with him. He has renovated part of his house into a home studio, specifically designed to get the best recording possible. He has extensive training from some of the most notable coaches in the voice acting industry, including John Stocker, Sunday Muse, and Mike Kirby.

Matt has also worked with some notable clients. For the past 2 years, he has been the voice of Office Depot / Office Max's Holiday Campaign "The Co-Worker Collection". He has voiced radio commercials for Price Chopper, and has done internet work for clients such as Monster.ca, Whirlpool Canada, and 3M. Also, Matt has worked with more than 50 other clients on internal business projects, audio books, telephone recordings, and educational videos.

But Matt isn't just restricted to using his own everyday voice, he can provide you with a variety of characters for cartoons and video games as well! Matt has provided voices for outlandish characters in games such as PayDay 2 and Wasteland 2. He has also voiced characters for puppets, cartoons, and educational videos and games for children.

To get an idea of what Matt has to offer, take a listen to one of his many recordings on his demo page.

EDM Studio Inc.

Matt was not only fast, but also friendly, helpful, precise and, oh yeah, AWESOME. His characterizations were exactly what we wanted, and due to his talents we are slightly ahead of our production schedule! Definitely a go-to guy, and you can count on him finding his way onto your favorites list. Five stars.

Marathon Petroleum

Amazing work! We got the perfect recording within only a couple of hours. Looking forward to collaborate with Matt again!

Adventure Films

Working with Matt was a phenomenal experience!! He implemented very specific guidance regarding emotional tone, pace, pauses, and other requirements, and he provided samples before completing our full script to ensure that he would get it right. His turnaround time was extremely quick, and he was very professional and responsive with his communication. He was also remarkably patient with us as our project underwent some unexpected delays and changes.
