"At this point in my career, I've probably produced over a thousand radio spots. If someone forced me onto a deserted island, and told me I could take only 5 voice actors with me with which to make another 1000 spots, Jim Reid would be one of those actors."

James is as good as it gets. He is a powerful and versatile voice. We love to hear him hash out the intricacies of life and existence in a gravelly tone that somehow embodies both the wonder of youth and the wisdom of seniority.

James was incredibly professional and was easy to work with for our initial take and then revisions. I would absolutely hire him again for Voice Over talent.
