My delivery can range from authoritative, manly, warm, natural and believable - to cool, modern, edgy, conversational and engaging. All easily achieved at your direction. In my 20+ years as a voice over professional, I have worked closely with trusted brands like John Deere, Cisco, Time-Warner, Dodge Ram, Harley Davidson, Sam's Club, Charter, Spike TV, and Avene Skin Care to deliver superior service when they required a dynamic voice to STAND OUT and cut through the chatter! And, when called for I can morph into a deep Sam Elliot type, strong, gritty Western cowboy delivery at will, adding what clients say is a certain genuine laid-back charm that warms up commercials, promos, in show narrations and animation.

I'm a very direct-able, versatile actor with 20+ years of experience. Throughout my career, I have voiced hundreds of radio and TV commercials, as well as thousands of radio and TV promos, tags and bumpers - for just about every purpose, from radio and TV commercials, narrations, promos and imaging, to sizzle reels, product launches, website intros, whiteboard presentations, training sessions, video games, explainer videos and more.
Working closely with a host of advertising agencies, radio and TV stations, and independent producers, I create broadcast quality voice overs from my own professional grade studio, or I can gladly record at any studio in LA or San Diego. I'm also an experienced radio air personality, TV Station Booth Announcer, on-camera commercial spokesperson, and professional musician/entertainer. My background in acting and music ensures my timing and rhythm are appropriate and effective.

"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
