Finding Your Niche, Your Voice

Posted on August 2, 2019 at 9:25 PM Comments comments (1)
When starting out in the voice-over business, it's been suggested that you find your niche (place or position) that's going to be where you're voice and style would be best suited. For me, it became radio (something I never thought I'd do). My passion and love has always and still is music, (singing in particular) but I never really pursued it professionally. It wasn't until years later that a friend of mine (who has since passed away) suggested I combine my love for music and my deep, alluring voice and create a radio show! Reluctant at first, I eventually gave in to the idea and my show, The Classic Soul Music Café was born (thank you Dorian and my friend, International Soul/Jazz recording artist, Frank McComb) for making my vision come to life! The show grew more and more and as a result, I was asked and hired to do a lot of radio drops, station IDs and promos! I'd found my niche in the voiceover game, it became more comfortable for me. I guess this journey to radio definitely helped me discover it, I'm still doing it! What's funny is that I had started my voiceover career, business, long before even getting into radio, auditioning for various oppoertnities but none as lucrative or fulfilling as radio had become. Isn't it amazing how an unexpected turn down your journey's road, that something wonderful can develop and take into a whole new world or at least add on to what you'd carved out for yourself. Bottom line, don't be afraid to explore new territory to help you on your creative path. Step out of your own way and soar into wonderful possibilities and opportunities. Find your niche, find your voice and in doing so, uncover even more wonderful and creative things about your gifts and you! Happy voicing everyone!

I plan on doing some traveling this Spring/Summer and don't want to miss out on any auditions and opportunities while I'm away........... Does anyone use their iPad or Phones to do any recording and sending demos? What is the best app and mic to use for the iPad?

I'm on one of the P2P sites and found out this past week that I can record new demos to add to my profile right from my iPhone! Any advice and suggestions would greatly be appreciated. Maybe this will help someone else.........

The music industry, in my opinion, has gotten away from the music, creativity and development of it's artist. Gone are the days of the "Motown School of Artist Development" or some form of it..........! It is sad to me that most of today's artist have gotten away from creativity and going more with what is considered "commercial"!

The best eras of music, to me, were the 60's and 70's when music and lyrics meant something and was relateable to everyone no matter what religion, creed or color!

Music has a way of bringing the most unlikley of people together, I saw this recently in a video that was posted on You Tube where this young man was playing music outside and other people walked by or stopped and joined in with him! It was beautiful and totally off the tops of their heads, beautiful!!

Please, let's get back to the days when the lyrics and music was a creative process, using "real" instruments not computers! When you took true experiences and made meaningful and beautiful music..........

Thank you
