Highlights

Taj Shareef has a natural boy next door sound perfect for your next project!

Crisp, friendly, trustworthy and articulate, Taj has a voice appropriate for Telephony, IVR, Commercials, Corporate, Video Games, Elearning, Narration, Podcasts, Audio books and More!

Taj's voice has been described as warm, friendly, articulate, hip, techy, urban, educated, and youthful. He is most likely to be cast vocally in a 20's and 30's age range, but can deliver vocals in the 30's- early 40's range as well.

Taj has a wide range of ability. For character work his voice has been compared to your typical Disney prince (sort of an Aladdin and Prince Naveen amalgam). He can be cast as an every man or brother figure.

Taj has provided his voice on several audiobooks available on Audible.com including the complex and informative biography of Raymond Washington the founder of The Crips in Los Angeles.

Taj's friendly tone has been used for Audible corporate E-learning modules and the IVR system of the Audiobook Creation Exchange (ACX).

Taj has an extensive background in customer service and believes in client obsession. Working on a project should be easy and Taj makes sure to lighten the load for any client he works with.

Taj makes sure to utilize his well insulated studio space to produce clean audio in a timely fashion!

When working with Taj, you can be sure that you aren't just another client, you're a priority!
