Key words that have been used to describe his voice-over style include: conversational, friendly, knowledgeable, genuine, confident, believable, guy next door, sincere, corporate, informative, relatable, sophisticated, and professional. ACCENTS: Although born and initially raised in West Virginia with a Southern Appalachian accent, James picked up the subtleties of a number of American accents due to relocation within the eastern United States.
