About Nicholas Darrow

Storytelling through art is my passion. I've spent most of my time in the visual arts exploring various worlds and the materials to show off their wonder. Naturally voiceover followed. Similar to how every stroke in a painting can change its impression on the viewer, so too can the words in a recording to the listener.

I aspire to inspire through story, with my words and my art.

Service Overview

Voice Over

I have a deep clean voice good for instructional recordings, radio, podcast, narration, and commercial. Studying singing and animation taught me to contort my voice, helping with audio books and animation work where different character voices are needed. My voice can be loud and booming as well for the overly dramatic reads when needed, as well as soft and comforting for children books or sentimental stories.

Skill Overview

Audio Editing

After recording my voiceovers I edit them to ensure that they sound resonant, clear, and professional. I use a mixture of Normalizing to -3Db, ensure there aren't any Click-Pops, reduce/eliminate the breathes if needed, and more to ensure the sound is top notch.

In addition I start off every recording with .5 seconds of silence, and end it with 3 seconds of silence, unless instructed otherwise.
