Testimonials

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 Benel
Program Director at Huge

"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

Stephen Pruitt - Owner, The Mountainview Group (A Voices.com client)

David is a pleasure to work with, no doubt about it. My studio does lot of animation, and timing is everything. David is able synchronize his voice exactly to the rough voiceover mock-ups I give him, greatly reducing my time spent in post-production. Plus, he delivers high quality work, on time, and with a smile. And his voice... ah-mazing. It's these reasons that I continue to go to David when I need voiceover work.

Edmund "Quintin" Anderson
Creative Director - The Seagull Company

“David,
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.
Zhenia” June 7, 2011
Top qualities: Personable, Expert, On Time

Zhenia Koval - Director of Video Department at DOEJO.com (A Voices.com client)

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.

Luigi Negri
Managing Partner @ ThinKeen Global (Voices client)

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.

Steven Anderson Multimedia Specialist - Western University • Fanshawe College

“David is an expert in his niche field; Voice Over. Friendly and approachable and always on time. It is a subjective opinion; but we at design:success likes his unique tone of voice and it portrays our company and values perfectly! Great job! (As always!)” February 6, 2012
Top qualities: Great Results, Good Value, On Time

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

I was honored to be David's voiceover coach back on Long Island. His "title" at that time would have been "voiceover student" (Linkedin didn't give me that option to type in). I'm not surprised that, just a few years later, his title could easily be "highly accomplished major voice actor." David has it all: great pipes, convincing and authoritative delivery, plus terrific attitude and personality.

David easily ranks among the finest voiceover artists in the business. If it has ever crossed your mind to hire an announcer/narrator for any project, put David Gavin at the top of your list. You'll be glad you did.

    / 5 Loretta Provinciali for Job #225308 Activity, Diet and Your Health (Pt.1) Working with David was absolutely wonderful!
    After listening to several auditions, he managed to breathe life and excitement into a script that I was afraid, might be too dry and boring.
    He has a beautifully rich voice, was extremely professional and friendly and he finished the job way ahead of my deadline!
    Most highly recommended and will surely work with him again!

    / 5 Victor Underwoood for Job #88696 Survival Video Sales Letter 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!
