About Akiem Bailum

My name is Akiem Bailum, a Journalism graduate of Georgia State University. I may be relatively new to the VoiceOver space but am a seasoned veteran in terms of using mass media to create content. I have been praised over many years for having a broadcaster's voice that projects well across a variety of media. I have performed voice over work for podcasts and am looking to take my foray into this space to the next level. If one word could be used to describe my skills, it would be versatile!

Service Overview

Voice Over

My voice is versatile and projects well on a number of broadcast and podcast media platforms. While my natural voice is one that can be described as soothing and friendly, I can also display my versatility with my skill to deliver booming and emphatic voice work when needed as well as voicing for characters. As my personality has become more well-rounded over the years, this shows up in what I do as a rising voice talent.

While I once did intro and outdo voice overs for an online radio show over a decade ago, I was also asked on numerous occasions to voice the closing announcements when I worked at a Home Depot location in South Carolina. My voice can be described as one with plenty of bass in it, but I also possess a great deal of vocal range.

Many individuals that I have engaged in casual conversations with over the years have described my voice as one that belongs either on a podcast or on the radio. If those individuals believe it, I am more than confident clients will too.
