I can provide a wide range of voice-over styles from warm and homey to brash and hard-sell. I have done everything from bright and breezy commercials to technical presentations so complex that even I had no idea what I was reading - but I made it work anyway!
I feel I have enough experience to be able to adapt my voice to whatever is needed to bring an audio script to life. A virtual voice-over chameleon!

I've enjoyed over 25 years in the television industry as a writer, producer, voice-over talent and on-camera host.
I'm versatile, inventive and very easy to work with and have extensive experience in commercial voice work for both radio and television. I've done a lot of in-house corporate work, too, from industrial videos to educational presentations.
I have also provided narration for documentary programs and series that have aired on Canadian television networks, such as CTV, YTV, the History Channel and Discovery, as well as on television stations and networks around the world.
As a freelance writer I have written literally hundreds of scripts in the areas of dramatic, documentary, and public affairs programming for local, national, and international broadcast, as well as serving as script editor and researcher on various projects as well. I have also written project proposals, script treatments, corporate website material, and entertainment reviews.
My point here is that if you need a final polish on your script, (or for that matter, someone to start from scratch on future projects), I can provide that service as well.

To Whom It May Concern:
Our company, BVS Performance Systems, recently undertook an extremely large project, creating dozens of online training courses in a matter of about four months. The development of these courses involves many different facets, not the least of which is recording audio for each one. Being that the subject matter is financial services, the scripts can be rather technical in nature so the course narrator must be relatable and understandable while delivering somewhat dry information.
When looking for voice talent for this project, we auditioned over 120 narrators. Bruce Edwards was one of five that we ultimately hired. Bruce has been extremely easy and professional to work with. He has turned around the material given to him within the expected time frame and the quality of his work has been even higher than what we had originally expected. He has taken any notes that we have given to him without complaint and incorporated those adjustments into his work seamlessly.
Overall, Bruce has been a true professional and we look forward to a continued relationship with him in the future.

To Whom It May Concern,
Bruce did an excellent job with a long and demanding project. He was able to construct a plan with me towards adapting a productivity and technical manual to utilize images as well as draft interpretations of those images. He easily moved back and forth between prose passages and the technical presentations.
His voice and recordings are clear and clean. His inflection and use of voice is practiced and honed. The professional quality of recording, too, is very apparent to anyone who has ever been behind a microphone and worked with recording equipment.
I would readily work with him again.
