About

I have been a go to voice for brand videos and brand anthems for companies like Oral-B, Nokia, Chevrolet and many others. Much in the same way Tim Allen embodies the soul of “Pure Michigan”, my talents have been used to inspire trust and confidence in a plain spoken , relatable way with few words. To add Steve Freedman to your shortlist - Click ADD TO FAVORITES Also please note that Steve as eligible for SAG-AFTRA as well as non-union jobs. My voice style and delivery have been compared to Morgan Freeman , Jeff Bridges , Dennis Haysbert , Donald Sutherland and George Clooney on more meaningful or serious reads and actors like John Corbett , Paul Rudd and John Krasinski on lighter material. Over 20 years of previous experience and training as an actor, director, producer and comedy writer has informed my voiceover work on more projects than I can count. Everything from commercials and promos to movie and video game trailers , phone greetings , phone system IVR messages , phone message sales reads , explainer videos , training videos , point-of-sale videos , compliance , IT , medical , technical , scientific and every other kind of video you can imagine, including many documentary and reality shows. As an independent professional, full-time voice artist and audio expert who regularly works both non-union and SAG-AFTRA jobs, I am always looking to build ongoing relationships with my clients. I go above and beyond to make sure you and your clients get exactly what you need and then some.

About My Voice: I have been told that my voice is “ageless”. While that may not be true for every application, I have been cast across a wide age spectrum. Everything from a young male in his 20’s to a grandfather in his 70’s. I probably fit most squarely into the category of male 40’s or 30-55. My conversational , smooth , deep to mid-range voice tone / timbre has been associated with actors like John Hamm , George Clooney , John Krasinski , Morgan Freeman , Paul Rudd and Bradley Cooper. I have also been compared to Jeff Bridges and Sam Elliot when I add some low-end “gravel” to a read and even to Denis Leary. I’ve actually had people ask if I was the Walgreen’s voice “at the corner of happy and healthy”. I wasn’t, but John Corbett and I do sound very similar. Some of the words that have been used to describe my reads are: authoritative , believable , confident , deep , funny , soft-spoken , high-energy , playful , amusing , conversational , mature , motivational , natural , soothing , thoughtful , warm , father , storyteller , attractive , explosive , knowledgeable , strong , uplifting , youthful , everyman , IT guy , spokesman , gravitas , calming , folksy , scientific , reliable , intense , narrator , friendly , funny , attitude , gritty. Types of Voice Over Work I Do: I’ve done everything from high-profile national TV and radio commercials and web commercials to corporate videos, brand videos and personalized video invitations. The uses for voice over are limited only by the imagination. Among categories I’ve worked in are: Business videos , explainer videos , white board videos , cartoons/animation , documentary/reality , education and eLearning , training , tradeshow , informational , sales , business presentation , medical , scientific , IT , screencast , powerpoint , mobile internet apps , web video , sales letter , movie trailer , computer game voices and trailers , podcasts , radio , television , PSA , tv promo , videogame , RPG game , toys , slot machines , audiobook , telephony , IVR , voicemail , phone system , on-hold message. So whether you need the perfect voice for bank training videos, point-of-sale videos, phone greetings and phone message sales reads or education and eLearning apps for the internet, tradeshows or any other use, please reach out. I can help. Availability and Turnaround Times: Often the last piece of the production puzzle, narration or voice over can require tight deadlines. I can usually accommodate, often returning completed work within a 1 to 3 hours. I can almost always deliver within 24 hours. My long-term clients know that I’m prompt, communicative and will always go the extra mile. Studio Facilities / Equipment: The highest quality audio is a must. My private studio includes a quiet, acoustically tuned isolation booth and top quality equipment at every stage of the signal chain. Sennheiser MKH-416 microphone (Neumann, BLUE and others available), Tascam interface, BAE 1073 preamp, Lucid A/D converter, Mogami cables, PC workstation running Sony Vegas Pro. For remote session direction, I have ISDN, Source-Connect Now, Skype and phone patch. I can deliver files in all formats up to 24 bit/96K resolution using whatever deliver method works best for you including FTP , DropBox , Wetransfer and others. Audio Production Services: Need a fully produced radio commercial or audio post for your video? I specialize in complete audio post production packages for web commercials , local commercials and other applications . I can provide everything from voice over, voice casting, language services (making international scripts sound authentic in English), audio post production, sound design and mixing. I provide the best royalty-free production music of every style (including world and orchestral) as well as a complete sound effects library and ample audio chops to produce a spot for you that rivals major ad agency production quality.

Hilarious. Dead-on with the read and your production values are excellent.

Wisebrother Media

Great work. Steve is professional, easy to work with, and does a great job.

Rival Schools

Lightning fast! Steve was very open to direction and doing additional takes, which I'm sure he would have done well, but the job was executed perfectly the first time, so there was no need.
