Testimonials

Spike Spencer is a joy to work with. Not only does he have a fantastic range, but he is personable, entertaining, and downright hilarious outside of the sound booth as well. He is a great creative addition to any team. - Amanda Winn Lee, Gaijin Productions

Gaijin Productions

Spike's one of the best!. He brings a healthy dose of humor to every session... along with a big, fat bag of voices! Any director who's worked with him once is going to want him on everything. Yup, he's that kind of awesome. Spike pushes his characters into places you never expected (or imagined) they'd go.

Alexander Von David, Director

I've worked with Spike on several projects and have found him to be an excellent actor. He always adds a great deal to any project he's working on. His portrayals are inspired and he is a top notch professional. He is always a joy to work with and I would greatly recommend him. -Richard Epcar, President and Game and Animation Director

Epcar Entertainment, Inc

Thanks so much for the quick turn on this and for being so great to work with. I'm hoping that this project will lead to more like them, and I'd love to hire you again if we can make that work. - Theresa Crout, Graphic designer/multimedia artist

Theresa Crout Art + Design

I've worked with Spike on both games and animation and had him voice everything from a half-spider, half-human psychotic, scientist to a nerdy know-it-all 10 year old to a C-3PO-type android with a love for slang. He’s knocked them all out the park. I think he’s one of the most underused talents in the industry.
- Kristi Reed, Casting/Voice Director

BangZoom!

I have worked with spike on a number of high profile Video Game productions, he is a consummate professional that really grasps the art & craft of character voice over. He is always on time, has a great attitude and strong acting skills. I highly recommend him for all voice over productions. -Bill Black

Bill Black Audio

When I cast and record Spike for our high profile game titles I come in knowing that I’ll be walking out of those sessions with top shelf material. His performances are consistently on target and his off-mic personality is both warm and charming. I like working for Spike because when I do it doesn’t feel like work. - Michael Csurics, Casting/Voice Director

2K Games

Spike Spencer is one of the better purveyors of gibberish I've had the pleasure of directing. Whether it's cold-reading a role in the patois of a psychotic Easter Bunny or leaving out two-thirds of the syllables on the fly to voice a necromantic pile of goo, he's good for it. He's also made some Faustian deal to retain a young voice until the end of time, but so long as Old Scratch doesn't come collecting halfway through his session, who am I to judge?

Patrick Seitz, Director

“We used Spike as the narrator for our Web Ethics & Safety video. We are an educational video company for high school students, so we needed a voice, which is educational, but not preachy. Spike did such a good job of being informative, but at the same time remained warm and accessible. Spike is a very professional vocalist. The quality of the audio was great and we did not have to ask him to redo anything. Another thing worth pointing out is, by the end of the project, we had to make some editorial changes on our end. Spike took no time getting these changes back to me. It is truly a pleasure to work with Spike. We will definitely consider him for future projects.”

We weren't sure we were going to be able to find a voice that could fit the nature of our spot--but boy were we wrong! Spike was fantastic at replicating a WWII news broadcaster, and is amazing in his ability to do so many different voices! A great guy to work with, very professional and friendly. Thanks! And highly recommended!

Spike is a really talented actor with live and flexible voice and good acting skills. I worked with Spike on a main role for the videogame and was satisfied by result in full measure. Spike portrayed the hero with very natural, fun and realistic manner and added a drop of humour to his character. I recommend Spike to everyone who looks for a lively, bright, and emotional voice for videogame characters.
