Voice Over Testimonials

Rich has the kind of timbre and intonation that grabs your attention and makes you want to listen. He is easy to understand and his inflection flows smoothly like a well-played instrument.

Nicolette Newman

Rich has a versatile and unaffected vocal instrument, warm in timbre and ornamented by crystal clear diction. It is the kind of voice one wants to listen to and not be interrupted. The listener can see a smile in his voice as well as imagine colors vivid and comprehensive in his descriptions laced with inflections and prose. High recommendations for this artist!

Your voice makes me want to buy whatever you are selling. It’s very honest and trustworthy.

Audio Mastering Testimonials

Rich simply gets it. At his core, Rich is an artist. He is smart, imaginative, takes direction extremely well and is so easy to work with! As a producer and director, I love working with voice over artists that have the ability to hear it and then deliver the subtle differences in direction. He sees the vision and delivers what the director is looking for. Top shelf voice talent.

Phil Smith - Producer - Chicago Recording Company
