"Hey, I know that voice!" ...is what lots of people say. Could be because David has voiced many hundreds of commercials and TV promos in his career. A very directable and versatile actor with 20+ years of experience, David Byrd is authoritative and believable, yet friendly, conversational and engaging.
David's friendly "everyman" tone is solid yet edgy enough to really stand out and cut through in commercials, TV promos and movie trailers. And as needed, he easily provides a fun, upbeat, energetic, musical delivery in retail ads that creates interest and urgency.
When called for, Dave can morph into his authentic gritty Sam Elliot type, strong Western cowboy delivery at will, adding a certain genuine charm that warms up commercials, promos, in show narrations and animation.
David is based in the greater Los Angeles area.

"We were working on a very quick turn around job and were desperate for a quality VO before sending to our client. David Byrd went above and beyond to help us bring the project to life under insane time restraints, and with limited guidance. He helped make what could have been a stressful situation much easier, and with a professional and caring demeanor. I would recommend David to anyone in need of a high quality and powerful voice over artist. I intend to work with him much more in the future, and look forward to the opportunity."Overcoast

David was so great to work with, and international distance didn't cause even the slightest issue. He was extremely fast, delivered the lines exactly as we'd described, and was incredibly friendly and enthusiastic about the project. Definitely wouldn't have any reservations asking him to bring more characters to life for us in future games! Thanks so much David!Western Press Video Game
