Meet Windy City Voice Talents...

Every project is different.  Every voice is unique.  Windy City Voice Talents wants to ensure that your message gets across to your audience by connecting you with the perfect voice for your project.  We pride ourselves in keeping up with the latest trends in the voiceover industry and knowing which voice "styles" are currently "hot" and which ones sound "dated".  Just like fashion, the trends in the voiceover industry can be cyclical and are never definitive.  Today's "conversational" approach to reading a script may one day again be replaced by that old-school "announcer" voice or DJ we all used to listen to on the radio.  Only time will tell.

Windy City Voice Talents was formed to facilitate the process by which clients engage the services of a voiceover artist.  If you are looking for voiceover artists for your project, Windy City Voice Talents will help you find them through a quick and easy process.  Unlike many "other" voiceover talent pool websites, we don't require you to sift through thousands of voiceover demos wasting your valuable time and getting nowhere.  By following our simple process, we are able to narrow down the overwhelming selection of voices and present you with only those voices capable of creating the desired "mood" or "feel" for your project.  The choice is still yours...We just do all of the legwork!  If you need any other voiceover services, like copywriting, editing, or complete audio production, just be sure to ask!

Please take a moment to meet the founders of Windy City Voice Talents:
