Experience

I've recorded hundreds of commercials ranging from pharmaceuticals/Health Care (Blue Cross Blue Shield) to other major consumer brands (Bass, Lipton Ice Tea, Blue Diamond Almonds and more), been the "voice of friendly authority" for in-house training videos and industrials for companies (such as SAP), hosted a podcast series, and done lots of local radio announcer spots. I love audio books, especially with multiple characters. I've also done voiceover for anime and cartoons. I've performed on Broadway and off, in leading man roles and character roles from villains to clowns. I've created numerous characters, and performed for major producers and tour organizations. Performed on stages around the world in material ranging from golden age musicals to operas to rock concerts.

Testimonials

"Mr. Sasser brought to life Dawson, Jared and Benji. He gave them each their own distinct voice, and it was immediately obvious that he understood the character and their motivation. An example would be Jared’s Voice; as you read the story, you learn that Jared has had to endure a lot of pain for his craft, but I knew that from the minute Jared first talked to Dawson. You could hear it in his voice. If a narrator is good, you, as the listener, will become part of the story. You will share in the pain... And that, my friends, that is why you buy the audio version of this book. Mr. Sasser doesn’t just tell us the story, he brings us with him on the journey.”

Audiobook Review on Amazon

I also would like to add that [James Sasser] did an excellent job of narrating. His voice characterizations match the characters perfectly... Both the audio and the story were well done, and I would give it a high recommendation to those who love cowboys. I’m keeping my eyes open... any future audios that [James Sasser] chooses to narrate."
