Highlights

WINNER OF THE VOICEY AWARD FOR BEST MALE VOICE! My unique voice allows me to bring a professional confidence to any Commercial, Presentation or Voicemail/On-hold message while still giving it a conversational feel. There's a warmth and the slightest hint of a smile that makes it sound inviting.

For documentaries or spots that may showcase more serious topics, I'm able to bring a genuine sense of what's being communicated and speak from the heart in a way that is believable without going over the top.

I love doing Animation and Character work for Video Games and Features! When it comes to Character Voices, Accents and Impersonations, I deliver all the emotion, humor, drama, and distinction that brings the character to life! If the role is designed to be real, I am able to take on the identity of the character, whether timid and nerdy, a hopeless romantic, a bold adventurer, or a manipulative scoundrel. When the role calls for more of a caricature, I dive into it, uninhibited, to ignite the character and engage the listener or viewer.

I understand Imaging. I've been in the Broadcast industry since 1985 and my experience gives me a distinct advantage when it comes to capturing the overall essence of a Television Network, Radio Station or web site. For those that require an edge, I'm able to turn up the heat and provide the grit and attitude. Sometimes my softer, smoother tone is the perfect fit.

I've been a musician and vocalist since I was a kid and have sung, written and produced Jingles for everything from Dairy Queen to Frost Insurance Brokers. I can give a smooth vocal for Contemporary and Jazz styles, add a little attitude for Rock and Blues, and sing in character for everything from Caribbean Music to Country Twang.

Experience

My involvement in radio began when I was about 8. I was the kid who would relentlesly call the DJ on the request line until he played my song. Me…“Could you play ‘Answering Machine’ by Rupert Holmes?” The DJ… “I’ll try and get that on for you.” Me, 3 minutes later, trying to disguise my voice… “Could you play ‘Answering Machine’ by Rupert Holmes?” The DJ, amused but starting to get annoyed… “I’ll try and get that on for you.” Me, 27 seconds after the DJ played “Answering Machine” by Rupert Holmes… “Could you play ‘Answering Machine’ by Rupert Holmes?” The DJ, downright angry and yelling… “I just played it!!”

“Dave seems to have an endless supply of creativity. It’s as if the guy is driven to turn out a gem every time.” – Rick Stevens, General Manager, Lighthouse Radio Group, Coos Bay, OR

Fast forward to the age of 15. After realizing I lacked the coordination to really compete as a breakdancer, I concentrated my focus on playing the music for those who seemed to have no difficulty defying gravity. Spinning records was considerably easier (and less painful) than spinning on my head, so I became a scratch/mix DJ at some local under 21 dance clubs. It was there that I met some of the local radio announcers and, with the same ferver that made Rupert Holmes the most requested artist, begged them to let me be on the radio until they finally gave me a job. I moved from weekends to full time fairly quickly and soon gained attention for my talents in the prod room. This was back when we used reel-to- reel machines, edits were done with a razor blade, tape and a chopping block, and to get an ad onto a cart you hit the button with your right hand while starting the turntable with your left and hitting “play” on the reel-to-reel machine with your nose. I think I realized that I might have a knack for producing ads when people were actually calling in and requesting my commercials.

“Dave is one of the most creative producers I’ve ever worked with.” – Mike Carter, Director of Operations, Brooke Communications, Roseburg, OR

Now, many years later, I’m blessed to have a wonderful wife, great kids, and I still get to do what I love… broadcasting, audio production and voice work.

“Being the Production Director at WRBS, it’s always helpful to have Voice Talent that can not only follow directions but, when needed, add a bit of their own take on the projects given them. Dave DeAndrea is that kind of Voice Talent. He always provides quality work with a quick turnaraound and a willingness to make sure that his work meets every expectation. That’s why Dave’s name is on my shortlist of Voice Over Artists.” – Jeff Atherholt, Production Director, 95one WRBS, Baltimore, MD

I’ve had the pleasure of voicing projects for Disney, Sony/BMG, Bertram Yachts, Dairy Queen, The Sharper Image (the bankruptcy was not my fault!), Pizza Hut, Allen Spring Villas, Medicare, The United Way, Swimways, Lone Star National Bank and many, many more!

I’m the voice of the “Just Know” phone service.

I’m the Vasudan Translator on a Freespace 2 expansion pack.

I’m also the announcer on producer of “The Way, The Life and The Truth” with Pastor Matt Fox, heard daily around the world on CSN International.

I can also provide commercial production services.

Thanks for stopping by… and maybe I’ll see you at the Rupert Holmes comeback tour.

Credentials

Education

My training has been hands-on, trial and error, since I was 15. I have gleaned wisdom wherever I can from those I respect in the industry and books on the subject. I believe that we’re ALWAYS learning… so while I’m confident in my current abilities, I’m always striving to do better. Sometimes that means making a phone call to another talent I respect and simply asking them, “How did you do that?” Other times it’s just a matter of trying to recreate what I’ve heard until I get it right. And many times, it’s just coming up with an idea and making it happen. Additionally, I regularly attend conferences and coaching sessions to better myself and my abilities.

I’ve been invloved in just about every aspect of making a commercial… from making the initial sale and scheduling the run to writing the copy, voicing and producing the ad(s) and getting them on the air. It’s given me a real appreciation for the difference between a good commercial and a GREAT commercial; a commercial that will give the business the best chance for a multiplied return for their advertising investment. It’s made me want to do the very best I can for everyone my voice represents… Commercials, Presentations, Narration, Voicemail, Imaging, Jingles, etc.
