Dave,
Thank you for sending the audio file. The delivery sounds great. Love your tube mic. One minor change needed. The pronunciation of Medina, Ohio. It is pronounced meh-dine'-ah not meh-deen'-ah. Can you record an update and send it to me by Wednesday? We are starting our edit then.

Thanks

Selecting the right voice via voices.com was a breeze, had the track in my box within hours, and it was a pleasure getting Dave Simmons to align his tone to that of the script, he listened and took direction well, understood the nuance of the occasional humor, our clients were totally pleased with the final product.

Dave Simmons was fantastic to work with, and his versatility really came in handy! He was perfectly able to give me a number of different voices, inflections, and reads -- and had an ability to not only implement direction, but offer up his own strong creative suggestions. He has a friendly, upbeat manner, and on top of that, has a great voice! This is a winning combo.
