Testimonials

There’s a million good voices in the world…and that makes it - funny enough - hard to find a good one!
I'm producer of radio commercials for a relative small market in Denmark. I was lucky stumbling over Norbert on a Google search. I was looking for a voice that could do a RastaMan character. Norbert hit the target on first try. Easy, smooth, good sound… right on!

Good job Norbert!

"Producing all voice over tracks should be as easy and as rewarding as was my experience with Norbert. He allowed direct contact (a phone call) which allowed us to develop a relationship. He thoughtfully considered my direction, listening to my needs and asking pertinent questions. Then, a short time later, I was presented with approximately 10 variations of the short script I had provided. Each reading was slightly different from the others. In this way Norbert was able to contribute creatively by giving me not only what I thought I wanted, but also viable options I had not previously considered. " DS

Norbert became involved in the electronic media at about age 13 when he became a regular voice on a popular weekly Jamaican religious children’s radio program which I produced and anchored: CHILDREN'S BIBLE CLUB. He served with this program for about three years as a regular voice. We teamed up in the mid eighties on another very popular religious program LOOK AT LIFE where Norbert help to write and voice a special dramatic series targeting youths. For more than a year now he has acted as the Studio Engineer for the same program. During these years Norbert has shown a unique measure of competence, both before and
behind the microphone as well as with the studio engineering, which in my view are the hallmark of a true professional.

Respectfully,

We have used Norbert for several voice over projects. He has given us top-notch performances, interpreting a variety of roles. Norbert provides a quick turn around and follows up to ensure that we have what we need. He is very responsive when changes and alterations are needed. Technically, his recordings are high quality. Norbert is a pleasure to work with and I recommend him strongly and without reservation.

"Absolutely superb!!!!!! We all love them Norbert, thank you! I’m working on them right now as they are running on air from tonight. A slight mixture of the international read on the business stuff in the middle but with your wonderful patois read at the start and the finish. Its a masterpiece. You’re the first and dare I say it, the OBVIOUS choice."

Carribean Artist was very skilled at what he does and offered different variations to my script without me requesting it. He is easy to work with and his voice is very polished.
