About

Authentic. That is the very best word to describe Bradford's voice. Yes, it can be rich, gravely, smooth, or even hip and young, but it is always authentic. Easily directed and always up for the challenge Bradford has done almost anything this VO world has to offer. As a 20 year veteran of the arts, he has done Performance Capture for AAA video games. He has voiced commercials for Fortune 500 companies and promo work for some of the biggest brands on TV. He's even voiced inanimate objects like a mailbox, a trashcan and a plaid sofa...it was a kids cartoon...it was hilarious. He can switch from Down to Earth to Inspirational from Hip and Cool to Authoritative and Direct and he can offer up the technical jargon with ease...even if he has NO idea what he is talking about. With a near obsessive desire to be focused and on-time, Bradford has been lauded as respectful and professional at all times. His priority is his client so he treats everyone to the same excellent level of service. And you can count on that level of service to be delivered in hours instead of most places that need days. A graduate of the highly esteemed Berklee College of Music, Bradford can offer original music for your project as well. Ask for samples of his work. Bradford's voice has been described as conversational, believable, rugged, approachable, authentic, guy next door, honest, and everyman. Bradford's voice is incredibly dynamic, and has been compared to Sam Elliott, Jon Hamm, John Krasinski, Dennis Leary and Bradley Cooper.
