You Are VO-Unique: How To Stand Out and Get Hired

Want to begin or expand your career in Voice Overs? You will hear this question, I guarantee it: “But there is so much competition. Why even bother?” Yep.

Fascination: A Voice Talent Necessity

When you hear an ad on the radio, do you change the station, or do you listen and evaluate? Believable or fake? Interesting use of technique? The talent’s voice quality, emotional choice, use or pitch? Unusual accent or character? If you listen actively, and – even better – if you then imitate what you heard […]

The Full-Time Eclectic Voice Talent: Many Eggs, Several Baskets

When I created my Voice-Over website with the amazing folks at Artist Upgrade, we wrestled with the age-old question (well, for voice talents, anyway): “Just” a Voice Talent, or  More?

Tomorrow night I teach another session for Edge Studio called “Investigate Voice Over.” We call it the “IVO” – and it’s taught frequently in our New York main studio, our CT and DC studios, in Los Angeles, and also via teleclass. If you’ve ever wondered about the true path to VoiceOver success, I can’t recommend […]

"You have such a nice voice!": the 5 layers needed for voice-over

When I teach “Investigate Voice-Over” classes for Edge Studio – either in the CT or NYC studio, on a telecall/webinar, in Continuing Education sessions or at the Connecticut School of Broadcasting – I usually begin by asking students what brought them to the class. If I had, say, a dollar for every answer that began, […]

Voiceover and Social Networking: Online or in person?

wow, remember live people? Here’s an eye-opening article from PC World that provides a reality check re social media.  Right now I’m working facebook, twitter, and the voiceover boards, since my first session today isn’t until 2 pm. Yep, 80% of the VO business is spent marketing (well, that’s one statistic I heard) – so […]
