Frank Frehill - President of PrimeLook Inc. ( A Voices.com Client)

"David Gavin is undoubtedly one of the finest talents I've worked with in over 30 years in the business. His lighting quick responsiveness to a fast turnaround for the Congressional Medal of Honor Freedom Gala's tribute to the former Secretary of State, George Schultz, was nothing short of remarkable. David's spot-on read set just the right tone and cadence to honor this historic man at an event of national importance. David is at the top of my list to call on for our next project."

TriWest Healthcare Alliance w/ The Congressional Medal of Honor Society

“David is a great talent and easy to work with. He is diverse in his ability and has all the tools to take care of audio start to finish. He's a real producer's friend. David is on the top of our go-to list for professional, creative, high caliber voice talent.” December 19, 2011

“David was an absolute pleasure to work with. We had a deadline fast approaching and needed to get to the design phase of the project. Without even having to tell David this he got right to work on the project and came back with a finished product the very same day that was extremely well done. We will definitely use David again for future design:success projects.”

Kim Norland and Terry Smith at Design:Success (A Voices.com client)

You have been a joy to work with on the projects for Doejo, I wish some day we could meet in person in this life. I will keep my ears open for VO work to send your way.

Kim Norland - Worldwide President & CEO design:success & Anstratus

“David has exceeded my (very high) expectations with his voice-over interpretation of the business presentation texts I've written.
Without the need of explanations, agreements, testing and trials, he autonomously understood the content, the target audience, the context of the presentation and thus the required tone and the "soul" of the voice. He matched the communication needs naturally like he would have been the actual author of the script and the main responsible for the delivery of the message.
I will continue to seek his professional support for the foreseeable time.” February 4, 2012

I recently worked with David on a TV spot with a very tight turnaround. We were looking for a certain vocal quality/personality, and David fit the bill. He was a complete professional and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with the results. Our client was thrilled with the end product, as was everyone at my agency. David will certainly be top of mind next time we need VO work.

Kristen Purdy Benel - Digital Producer / Project Manager at IQ Agency

A true professional. David went above and beyond to work with me throughout a recent video project and really helped take it to a new level! His knowledge of the industry and appreciation for tight timelines is evident and his personality and communication skills were a big factor in how well the project came together. I'm looking forward to working with David again.

I'm STUNNED.
Mr. Gavin not only exceeded all my expectations, but he rapidly registered himself in the select group of the EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL individuals I have ever worked with. His talent is simply AMAZING and made everything seem like a walk in the park. He had ABSOLUTELY no problem delivering everything in the final version ahead of time, and I'm not talking here about a mini-text or some small 3-minutes commercial. It didn't need any revisions since everything was perfect from the first try.
I do not recommend Mr. Gavin. I am DEMANDING you work with him!

Oct 24, 2013

Thank you very much, David!

David is a pleasure to work with. I needed precise timing for my voiceover, which David delivered to a tenth of a second. I also wanted to go over the script before the final copy was recorded, and David was happy to meet with me on the phone. He also completed the job the same day we started -- would recommend David for your narration/voiceover needs.
