Highlights

W.L. Jenkins "The voice you want to hang out with."

My voice is very real and natural. People are drawn to my voice because of its underlying wit, sense of trust and occasional flash of edginess. It's the confident voice of someone who knows what they're talking about. Guys like to have a beer with my voice. Women feel comfortable letting my voice order for them. I can be your accessible, down home storyteller. Your cool, laid-back announcer. Or the intense buddy next to you in the bleachers. I’m great with dialogue.
