About

I was a three time president of Toastmasters which is an international public speaking club. Here I competed in competitions involving comedic and motivational speeches and narrations. I have been doing book narrations for six months and have not been without work. I work with and in combination with my son, Andrew Blake who has 24 years experience in music performance, music production, jingle writing and voice overs. Together there is not much we can't do.

Voice Over Testimonials

In a world of electronics and easy narration programs, in times of rush and bland, a spark of light ignites in the voice and style of Gene Blake. His unique style and sound take you into the stories that he reads making you part of the world instead of just being a listener. He creates a visual through acting narration and voices that resembles the days of old radio, when one gets captivated by it all.
Gene Blake is a true natural talent who has the ability to not only perform the story, but get into the writers head so he con portray the story just as the author imagined.

Jaqueline Druga / author

As a first time director and producer of a self-financed feature film, I faced many challenges. But Gene Blake was among the few things I could depend on to not contribute to the stress. His thinking is sharp and subtle, his sense of character intuitive and considered. Throughout the process he remained focused long after the energy of others waned. Both his committed professionalism and his sense of daring were an inspiration to all those involved. I have worked in many collaborative scenarios in various disciplines and Gene Blake is exactly the kind of collaborator I expect everyone hopes to find.
