Service Overview

Voice Over

I love narrating, instructing, advertising, singing, and creating memorable audio files of all sorts. Music, books, commercials, instructions, videos, podcasts, classes, and webinars are only some of the many voice over services I've provided over 30 years of industry experience. Further, I create new content constantly and keep my skills sharp and imaginative with many styles of inflection to choose from. No voice over service is too big or too small. I'll provide quality results in a timely fashion that will meet your budget and exceed your expectations.

Singers

Blakgraz music combines rock, blues, country, folk, bluegrass, pop, electronic, and jazz to create a unique style full of energy, intense passion, unique storytelling, and skillful performance to ensure a memorable experience for each listener every time.

Blakgraz first formed in 2010 with the release of the album “Lust” followed in 2012 with “Messages in Numbers” followed by “Fire” in 2019, then “Chaotic” in 2021, and now “Trust” for 2022.

The main creative force behind Blakgraz is Tom Sweeney. Tom wrote and recorded “Now Is So Beautiful” with Valarie Borman in 2000, and had it reach the No. 1 spot for downloaded songs on MP3 dot com, beating out Alanis Morrisette and Blink 182. Tom has had regional success with songwriting in various projects including Shoot the Moon which saw Top 10 positioning on Reverbnation in 2007 for several months and national, regional, and college radio airplay. Tom has been fortunate to share the stage with national touring acts across the United States.
