Carl went above and beyond in providing the vocal talent for our project. The project in question required wording to be exact and on point due to the subject. He worked closely with us to make sure each line was as it needed to be, but still managed to add his conversational flare which kept the performance from sounding "scripted". Great job and highly recommended for your company's projects.

I chose DC Goode as the new voice for our company and plan on using him for all future projects. He's professional, reliable and has an incredibly fast turn around time.

We are very happy with our decision to use him and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for their next professional voice over talent.

DC was really great to work with. He has a fantastic voice that fit the character perfectly, and he is excellent at natural readings that sound believable as opposed to "announcer-ey". He also had a very fast turnaround and the recording quality was top-notch.

I would definitely work with DC again in the future. Highest recommendation.
