I began my voice over career around 1993 in Nashville,Tennessee. Not taking it too seriously at first while busy trying to make it big in the music biz and running my own commercial photography studio. I even had two #1 records as an artist in the secondary US Country radio market. While singing demos in Nashville studios, I was asked to voice a few projects. “You mean just talk?”, I asked. I was starting to find out then that my spoken word was more “unique” than my singing voice. Learning a whole new form of expression, I refined my craft through acting workshops, local theater performances and on-camera work.
As time went by and frustration grew with the music business, I found myself voicing radio/TV ads, music promotions, audio books and corporate videos. Establishing my warm and rugged, storytelling AMERICANA signature sound. One of my agents reps me as "the perfect Americana sound." My voice, face and physical presence match up perfectly and lead me to pursue on-camera work as well.
I’ve become a leading voice for the basic industries that keep America moving forward...construction and manufacturing, agriculture/equine, energy production, community banking, finance and insurance as well as outdoor sports, travel and tourism, education and entertainment. I am a colorful voice for film, television, museum and corporate documentary and audio books. My combined background of music, acting and photography have shaped me into a seasoned voice over artist with a great “ear” for audio and an imaginative “eye” for the visual.

From Patricia McDonald To Rick Lance (Re: Job #27933) We found the extra cartoon voice comment "your a big boy now" (not included in the script) a bit unprofessional. Located at the end of the oil Change video, it was caught and edited out before production, thankfully.

From makkai zsolt To Rick Lance (Re: Job #17685) Rick Lance,
I can only say that the job is very well done!
- Immediate response to my call for the job.
- Although I set a close deadline, and it was right after the New Year's Eve he committed to the given job openly showing great flexibility. (To be honest I did not expect the job to be finalized so quickly)
- In couple of days after clarifying the details I had the first complete session for checking.
- Another day or two and the show was ready for broadcast.
I did not mention that he has a uniquely warm and deep voice that our radio was exactly looking for.
Thank You again Lance on behalf of Megadance Radio from Hungary!Apr 14, 2010
