    We have been using Joe’s services for the last 10 years. Joe has done audio book recordings as well as many of our instructional videos. Joe was using ear prompter and regular teleprompter to record our videos. He is very friendly … More and very nice to work with. We are still using his services when needed, and plan to use his services in the future. Thank you so much Joe!

    We’ve used Joe and his team for several years now to provide voiceovers for our various radio and video advertisements, and they come through each and every time with the top-notch quality we’re looking for. In addition to the excellent … More quality, Joe always provides quick turnaround on the various projects we send his way, some of which are extremely time sensitive. I’m grateful to Joe for the attention he gives us as clients, and I look forward to working with him for many years to come.

    Joe did the opening voice over for my podcast. It was great! He did it on-time and delivered it expertly. It was a remote recording and he did the final production as well. We incorporated his recommendations along the way which made it … More all that much better. I would highly recommend Joe for any voice-over work.

Rated 5 out of 5

My small business required a voice over for a promotional video we shot. Joe’s voice was exactly what we needed to finish the video… perfect the first time too. His turnaround time and price was awesome as well. No hesitation in recommending Joe. Hear it for yourself at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glIoSoZjTNM

I am delighted with Joe Dawson (Joe The Voice) and his narration of my book, “It Ain’t The Money!” Joe is a true voiceover artist – professional and meticulous, with great attention to detail and follow-through, but best of all, he SOUNDS GREAT! Super fluent and fluid, no hesitations, no mannerisms – he was the perfect choice to narrate my book and I highly recommend him! – April 2016

Hi, my name is Joe Dawson.  I’ve been a professional voiceover artist for 30+ years and am serving clients in the United States, Canada, and the Middle East including large corporations, such as Walmart and LensCrafters.  As a proven versatile voice over artist, I continue to meet the needs of dozens of Fortune 500 companies, as well as those of local advertising agencies, small businesses, and young entrepreneurs.

With decades of experience, I not only have honed my talent but know how to manage a project to completion. I take the time to understand my client, their audience and what motivates consumer response.  Experience has taught me that conveying a message with a calm, collected, and confident voice both inspires and creates excitement among listeners, motivating my clients to come back time and again.

Can you handle my project?   The audio production landscape has changed considerably over the years.  This in turn has allowed many voiceover artists to set up home studios; thus, most freelancers do not have a production staff to assist them.  Let me assure you that my decades of experience satisfying hundreds of clients in the field of not just voice-overs but also audio production speaks for itself.  With this kind of experience, you can be confident you have hired the right talent for your project.  

My turnaround?  I can usually turn around urgent work almost immediately, and am certainly willing to work outside of business hours if requested.  More importantly, I’m known for being a reliable voice over artist.  I take great care to let you know at the beginning of our work agreement when you can expect to get your project back and take pride in always meeting and exceeding those expectations. I take deadlines very seriously, adding to my determination to deliver on time, every time. Finally, I realize the voiceover business is one that thrives on the willingness to adapt. So, if the client’s circumstances change, and a more urgent turnaround time is required, I do my best to be accommodating. I have built my business on common sense and customer service, so my clients are completely satisfied with my work. Check out my testimonials to find out why.

Do I belong to a union?   No, I’m a non-union talent which means my client and I are free to negotiate the cost of my services.

Do I have access to female voice talent?   Sure do.  Just specify the voice type and I’ll match your specs and provide demos.

Retakes?  Again – yes, no charge. After I deliver your copy there is a slight fee for script re-writes.

Hey Joe, can you help me out? Let’s say you’re only the middleman.  You work with the client and copywriting is a service you provide. But if copywriting is not your thing, I can ease the pain.  I’m always happy to offer suggestions on how to improve the read or revise the script from a talent perspective, without an additional fee.

Can we discuss script before I read?  Absolutely!  Or let me have at it, and if you’d like a re-read, there’s no charge.

Am I expensive?   If you’re looking for the bottom-line price in a voiceover, you may find a cheaper offer.  It’s good to remember you get what you pay for.  As a fellow voice talent says, “If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur.”  That said, I’m more than willing to work with you and your budget.  

Do I audition?   Yes, I am happy to preview my voice with your copy.  My goal has always been 100% client satisfaction.  Also, it’s highly likely we’ve not met face to face; therefore it’s my mission to go the extra mile to gain your trust.
