I have gone to Leonard for various VO work on Prankster projects.Prankster Entertainment
There are two reasons I continue to keep his contact info close by:
· The professional manner in which he works to the final deliverable. He communicates effectively to understand the vision for the final VO and nails it – and he works with ease to get the vision/final VO correct.
· His ability to infect multiple emotional qualities to the VO. He can nail a wide range of VO needs, from a “grounded, voice of authority” in a piece to a “fringe cartoon caricature”.
It is an added bonus that his years of sound producing also give him the ability to deliver a finished piece with effects, music bed, etc. This extra value is priceless. I highly recommend working with Leonard for your audio needs.

Leonard Nelson is a vocal artist with the rare talent to not only bring your prose to life, but to give your characters a three dimensional life of their own. My own book - Tales of The Blue Meanie - is a memoir that flashes back to the hazy crazy days of the Sixties. And the voice he gave the characters were so right on that I imagined they were sitting next to me, talking and laughing about those unforgettable times. I look forward to working with Leonard on other projects in the future. I whole-heartedly recommend him to all authors and audiobook publishers who are looking for a marvelous artist of the microphone...
