Message On Hold Voiceover
Troy did a great job for us. He has a warm, friendly voice that was perfect for our client's website video. I was able to discuss the project with Troy before recording so that he knew exactly what we expected, and the end product was fantastic. Fast turn & very professional. With his background & experience, I would highly recommend Troy for any project.The Todd Company
As we began pre-production for the Yakima Symphony Orchestra's "Enchanted Nights" TV commercial, Troy's voice was instantly the first one we wanted. The Yakima Symphony Orchestra is located in Washington State and we knew we needed a powerful voice for the spot. After sending just one or two concepts to him (after shooting the commercial) of what we were looking for, he was able to take that direction and voice over the script perfectly. Within a day, we had the full voice over sent back and inserted into our post production. He matched not only the tone and feel of the ad but also had perfect timing and the quality of his voice and the recording were crisp and clean. On the aesthetic side, it was exactly what we were wanting to feel and hear and on the technical side, it was crisp, clean and without any "noise" at all.Centurion Production
His voice was the perfect fit. I will absolutely be looking to work with him again!
Troy Klein produces a quality product and right on schedule. I couldn't be happier with the experience of working with him on "Deadly Additive", and I will definitely keep Troy in mind for future projects.Pelican Book Group
Troy is a pleasure to work with. He listened and went beyond the call to create a great product for our child hunger awareness campaign. I'm happy to recommend Troy.Golden Sun Marketing
Troy Klein delivered a strong, right on performance for my football audiobook, From Sandlots to the Super Bowl by Craig R. Coenen. This is an academic book on the history of football, and he hit every note. He’s also a pleasure to work with; I look forward to working with him again.University Press Audiobooks
