Chris has a friendly, male, "Average Joe", American, guy next door kind of voice. It’s comfortable, familiar, engaging, and reassuring. He is confident, but not cocky, and is truly genuine. Perfect for fresh radio and tv ads, podcasts, educational and instructional internet videos, and even documentaries. If you are looking for an energetic telephone or voice mail system voice, his unique voice characteristics will shine that welcoming smile right through. With a voice that is comfortable in a range from teen, to young adult to middle age, his voice lends itself to all kinds of purposes. Chris Laning's theatre background (as both an actor, director, and founder of several community theatre organizations) allows him to bring a wide range of characters to the voices you seek. Whether you are looking for a guy from New York or Philadelphia, a redneck, hillybilly, or Cowboy, or even a comical character of a variety of accents, see what Chris can do for you. But wait, there is more. Chris has also written a variety of scripts for radio ads, hosted a NASCAR radio show, produced a local radio show for the DARE program, and wrote and produced multiple podcasts, ranging from national podcasts on community theatre to a children's audio drama podcast. This makes Chris Laning a great partner for your podcast, commercial, or even promo project. A NASCAR fan, old time radio lover, tech geek, theatre buff, major Disney freak, and a political junkie, Chris just might have the knowledge and passion you are looking for in your project.
