a)I consider my skills as a twenty-five professional, headliner and main-stage recording/'live' entertainer veteran as my ultimate training. Having achieved top-of-the-charts action in the Club/Dance music genres and working in recording booths, behind a mic, with countless producers and writers over a two-decade period; experience has taught me about inflection, breathing, tone and mic-technique. In 2009, my voice received heavy rotation on the MTV network from a song that I released, and is till being played from time to time. The voice is somewhat recognizable to the public worldwide from this event and many others.
I am currently transitioning over into voice-over field 'full-time'. Although I enjoy being behind a mic, it's more fulfilling knowing that my doing so is helping a business to grow or a product to sell. Additionally, I bring with me my library of songs that were eith written solely by yours truly or was co-written, fully produced, master rights available and published or co-published on my end. So, if you hear a demo here with a song that's right for your next production, simply contact me.
b) Although I am based in Los Angeles, Ca (USA) most recently, my voice over skills have been used in Italy on radio stations for Station IDs. On some of these, I used my speaking voice and for others, my singing abilities were called upon. I done this sort of work in Australia and England as well (i.e. listen to the demo posted labeled - 'The Mike Smith Radio Show'). Mr. Smith's bumper was produced in 2008. My first Station ID was done for a station in Conneticut in 1999 and the Italian jobs, 2011. The latter came from my previous workas a professional recording artist who had worked with Italian music producer, Paolo Stocchero (aka Dr. Kmer).
c) My Voice Over classes/training in Los Angeles are on-going and with a very well-known VOA and trainer who has been in the voice over business for more than thirty years. Even more training has come from my acting/scare-acting jobs at Universal Studios Hollywood over the past fifteen years. Initially, I was cast as their first 'Mummy' for the annual Halloween Horror Nights eventin 1997. This was followed by years of being cast as Frankenstien and other characters for Universal Hollywood.
