About Josh Rachlis

I'm perfect for:

Explainer videos
Educational videos
E-Learning
Internet videos
Narration
Phone system

I sound:

Friendly
Professional
Wise
Youthful
Real
Natural
Smart
Helpful
Believable

I am THE voice for explainer and whiteboard videos. I've done literally hundreds of explainer narrations for Epipheo. In fact, you've probably heard me and are looking for a voice like mine! I'm what you want if you've described your ideal voice as any of these words: Believable friendly warm professional conversational energetic fun youthful real inspiring encouraging thoughtful knowledgable experienced NON-announcery

Clients who have used me for explainer videos and announcer roles tell me they were exactly what I was looking for: I sound like I have the wisdom of someone knowledgable and experienced, but with a young, energetic, modern feel.

I'm also an experienced actor and comedian, so I can be very funny while still sounding real. When I was cast as Dan The Chameleon for a TV spot for Hubba Bubba, the writer told me that they'd cast all over North America and I was the only person who made my love for the gum sound natural, like a real person who genuinely loved the product.

I have voice agents in Toronto, Portland, Milwaukee and Los Angeles. So you're lucky to have found me on your own!

Voice Over Testimonials

Leo Burnett Chicago was casting across North America for a voice for an animated chameleon for a commercial for Hubba Bubba Max. They chose me and flew to Toronto to record me. The copywriter told me that they heard every voice in LA and NYC and in the continent, and I was the only actor who could convey a love for the gum in a natural way.

Leo Burnett Chicago

The Hubba Bubba commercial mentioned above was animated by Oscar-winning studio Aardman Animation in Bristol, England. One day I was shooting a commercial at Aardman and spotted the clay model of Dan The Chameleon, and the animator said: That was so fun to work on because the voice actor was so great!"
