HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I've been in the Voice Over biz for over 4 years now as a recording and audio engineer for GM Voices (www.gmvoices.com), a professional Voice Over Studio that specializes in recordings for use in IVR and GPS systems. I have learned from a lot of great talent and people from both sides of the glass. I’m very familiar and capable with Industrial style IVR and GPS Voice Over recordings, but I specialize in Voices for Animation and Commercials. My natural voice is an energetic tenor-range, which makes me perfect for the Dell/Apple style “cool geek,“ teen sidekicks, comedy TV Spots, and reassuring tech support. But I specialize in versatility and I can provide a wide range of voices and reads.

Whether your project calls for a super-powered teen hero, a reassuring support technician, a sarcastic jokester, a vivid storyteller, or just a plain ol normal guy you'd wanna hang out with, Andrew S. Bates is the Voice Actor YOU need!
Easy to work with and eager to please, Andrew is dedicated to giving you EXACTLY the voice you are looking for!
Andrew has been involved in the voice acting industry on both sides of the glass for over three years and has been lucky enough to work and study with many big name voice actors such as Bob Carter, September Day, and Tony Messano to name a few.
DIALECTS, Character voices and vocal impressions
You name it and I can give it a shot! Gollum and Spider-Man are a couple of my faves though! I'm a pretty good parrot! ; )
Perfect for a teen sidekick like Robin, a cartoon animal like Mickey Mouse, Daffy Duck or Po from Kung Fu Panda, a young hero like Spider-Man or Ash from Pokemon, a guy next door like the Dell Guy or the Apple commercials guy, a sarcastic joker like Ryan Reynolds, Neil Patrick Harris, or Matthew Perry, a freaky creature like Gollum, a little kid, or something just downright weird like Meatwad or Gizmo from Gremlins!
I've played around with many types of accents such as British, Scottish, Southern US, Midwestern US, Brooklyn, and Canadian and have just begun studying accents more seriously...stay tuned!
