Profile Information

I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
My first paid gig was narrating a recruitment video for my alma mater, Oakwood University, in 1991. A decade later, while living in Portland, OR, I pursued voice over full-time in between a TV and Radio gig. I bought myself some gear, software, built a custom DAW PC and went to work for Bob Ancheta at internetjock.com. I also managed to book my own local and regional radio/tv spots in the Pacific Northwest. But I didn't stop there. I also trained with actor/casting director Elaine Clark of San Francisco, actor/casting director Rick Zieff of Hollywood, Della Cole of Your Act Acting Studios in Atlanta. Recently, I have been lucky enough to train with the legendary and premiere VO talent Randy Thomas. I am also currently training with automotive ad genius and the founder of the Dallas Voice Acting Meet Up Group, Cliff Zellman. I also own and operate Murphy Media Group, LLC, a social, digital and mobile media marketing company. Cheers!
RECENTLY BOOKED PROJECTS
I have performed in commercials, promos and even portrayed abolitionist Frederick Douglas in Oregon Public Broadcasting’s American Passages: A Literary Survey – Part 7, Slavery & Freedom (ISBN: 1-57680-564-6) in 2003. Some of my most recent work includes both on-camera and VO narration for the Homeland Responder Brief as a part of the Homeland Security Training Network (2005-2006). I have voiced IDs and promos for a regional cable network in the Southeast. I recently built out a pro studio at my home in Alpharetta, GA, where I conduct remote recording sessions via ipDTL exclusively with Rode microphones.

Adobe Audition Replaces Soundbooth

Posted on June 26, 2011 at 3:21pm 2 Comments

I recently previewed a beta version of Adobe Audition for the Mac.  What I didn’t know, at the time, was that Audition was replacing Soundbooth, a digital audio workstation long used by voice actors.  And while that might be disappointing to Soundbooth fans, Audition does pack quite a punch.

 

Some of the features Audition has that Soundbooth didn’t have are: project exchange with third-party DAWs, native 5.1 multichannel support, more native audio effects and new royalty-free…

Could This Be The ONE?

Posted on April 9, 2011 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

You have probably collected more than a few pieces of audio hardware as a voice actor.  After all, we are always looking for that special something that will make our voices sing!  Apogee is hoping the ONE is the single piece of kit you will use in your Mac-based recording studio.

 

The ONE is a compact USB microphone and digital audio interface.  And with a 2.25” x 4.75” footprint it is actually small enough to fit in your pocket.  But you probably would not want to do that…

Has The iPad Become The New Portable VO Studio?

Posted on March 11, 2011 at 11:30am 2 Comments

Many of us use laptops with a solid USB mic or digital audio interface like the MicPort Pro.  All you have to do is load your favorite DAW, hit record, edit and then email the final product.  It's a great way to record those all-important sessions or auditions while on the go.  But what if I told you that you could soon use an iPad as a portable VO Studio?

 

Well, the fine folks at Apogee have recently…

Did Morgan Freeman voice a campaign ad?

Posted on November 2, 2010 at 12:07pm 11 Comments

I can't tell you how many times I've auditioned for a spot where the instructions were to sound Freemanesque. Well, a campaign ad for governor in Wisconsin is stirring up controversy because the voice actor sounds a lot like the Academy Award winning actor. Take a look and tell me what you think.

Trey,
I’d like to invite you to join a group I’ve started called “Voices of Colors.” There members offer information and advise each other on navigating this business as people of color. Just go to "forum" (up top), then to "groups," then join "Voices of Colors." Looking forward to hearing of your experiences.
All the best and continued success.
Mike
