Persona Samples – One Voice Talent, Different Styles

Our professional voice actors inhabit the persona to fit your brand.

A voice persona is a fictionalized biography and set of voice traits that guide our voice actors in the recording studio. It’s literally the humanization of a brand image; a voice to the marketplace. Creating a persona (an essential component of a Voice Branding Initiative) helps our voice actors adapt their sound to best serve your customers. As you can hear, GM Voices offers many voice talent who can tailor their performance to your specific requirements.
