Highlights

Big Voice with adaptability and range. English, and -- given production time -- Spanish. Unlike a number of typical deep announcer voices, I have more than one gear. My voice tends toward deep, but I have a wide variety of tone, volume and speed for commercial or character work. My voice is relatable, friendly and deep for narrations. I can also hold a tune and have written, produced and performed a few musical ad campaigns.

Experience

For more than 25 years, I have been providing professional English and Spanish voice-over and production services to radio and television stations, advertising agencies and businesses across North America. From "Big Voice" work for the nightly national rock show Loudwire Nights and radio stations around the country to advertising for clients ranging from car dealerships to yogurt shops, one of the most positive adjectives I can use to describe my work is "range". My ability to adapt my voice to fit the tone of the production has kept me in demand for a wide variety of voice work for a wide variety of clients.

Add over two decades of work as a writer and producer, and chances are, whatever your project, I can provide you with the kind of polished, professional production that can lift it above the din.

Testimonials

Duke's amazing voice speaks for itself. It's his reliability, accuracy, range, and speed of turnaround that really puts him light years ahead of everyone else.

Troy Dorman, Director of Imaging Production, Townsquare Media

I took over WKGL as Brand Manager in April of 2015. For the last fifteen years I have dealt with one voice talent at an Active Rock Station, so coming into a station with an established voice was something I looked forward to.

I had an idea how I wanted the voice to sound, the delivery for “Rockford’s Classic Rock Station” had to be a certain way. From the first day I spoke with Duke, I knew things were going to be just fine. The previous BM had a very laid back “Classic” vibe to the station, I wanted upbeat and a Classic “Rockin’” voice.

Duke delivered right away and hasn’t let me down. I obviously needed to redue all the imaging for the station to match the new tempo and style and Duke was great about this massive workload I sent. Turn around time was quick, and it all sounds EXACTLY how I want it.

Jon Schulz, Brand Manager, WKGL-FM/Rockford

I have known Duke Keith for so many years, I can’t remember how many. In all that time he has been a professional, talented voice talent and producer for a number of projects.

Specifically, I have hired Duke as talent on a number of projects through Ballyhoo! Studios. He can go from a serious delivery, like he provided for our video “The History of Fort Lawton” (Seattle) to his more humorous approach as Santa Clause in a show we recorded for the kids of Head Start. He also records voice tracks for the Hyundai Sun Bowl on a yearly basis.

So, whatever you’re considering Duke for, he can do; quickly, efficiently and he’s always easy to work with and direct.

Jeff Goldberg, Co-Owner, Ballyhoo! Studios
