HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Jay began his voice acting career in 1986 as a radio announcer, copywriter and producer. He produced spec spots for potential advertisers, as well as morning show parodies for Glenn Beck when Glenn worked mornings at B104 in Baltimore, MD. In 1993, Jay left radio to begin work full time as an audio engineer, producing radio and TV commercials, promos, and narrations. Since then, he’s worked with advertising agency producers, writers and directors on thousands of jobs encompassing all areas of media. Today, with his professional audio engineering and production expertise, Jay offers an insider’s perspective on what clients really want from a voice actor and the ability to deliver it. He serves a global clientele from the studios of SunSpots Productions in Asheville, NC. SunSpots has been serving the advertising community with voice talent and production services since 1995. In his spare time, Jay plays trumpet and bugle and plinks around on piano and bass.

Jay Patrick records at SunSpots Productions in Asheville, North Carolina. An industry standard for professional recording studio since the 60′s, Neumann’s U87 and the newer TLM103 microphones are the mics of choice at SunSpots. Another industry standard, the Symetrix 528e Voice Processor provides clean phantom power and processing to the mic. ProTools Digital Audio Workstation is a mainstay of the professional recording studio. Jay has been recording and editing voice-overs at SunSpots Productions with Pro Tools since 1995 and has become fast and fluent in editing voice tracks and creating aurally enticing sound design scenes for all forms of media. SunSpots Productions uses the Telos Zephyr Xstream audio codec as well as the Musicam Prima LT, Prima 220 & RoadRunner audio codecs to connect to others with similar equipment via ISDN lines.
