James was SO good to work with! We were on a tight turnaround and he jumped right on it to get the VO back to us asap! He also gave us numerous reads with different inflections and emphasis so that we could choose which one best fit our project! It was pleasure working with him, and hope we have the opportunity again!

We were more than impressed with Mr. Herron's talent and professionalism. Our project had a lot of names and words that needed clarification in terms of pronunciation. Mr. Herron contacted us to make sure he had the correct pronunciations before beginning the project. His voice brought a new dimension to our project and we will not hesitate to work with him again in the future.

James is excellent to work with: professional, timely, and the right voice for my project. He went above and beyond to make sure I had his files when I needed them, recording the night before he left for holiday vacation. He preemptively provided files in multiple formats and recorded several versions of name pronunciations. Being new to this process, I appreciate how easy James and Voices.com made it for me to get the high-quality narration I need for an excellent end product.
