HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
My name is Armand "Hops" Hutton and I sing bass with an acapella band called "Naturally 7" in which we impersonate and actually sound like we become the band. I become the bass guitar. We call our style "Vocal Play." We've been on numerous television shows including the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Ellen Degeneres Show, The Tavis Smiley Show, and the Royal Variety Performance (UK), and countless radio programs where I've had to do voice drops and voice overs promoting the band and program. I began my career while attending Oakwood College in Huntsville, AL. While there, I worked as a Radio DJ/ Production Manager at WOCG 90.1 FM in Huntsville, AL. I did voice overs for different pageants and programs. I also sang bass and arranged music for different acappela groups and also for the world renowned Oakwood College Aeolians. After most engagements and appearances many people comment on the voice that I've considered a gift for many years. One of the biggest compliments I've received came from Chris Martin of Coldplay.
