Professional showcases for North American talent

Welcome to VoicesUS

VoicesUS stands as a premier North American voiceover platform, offering comprehensive and searchable professional showcase services for voice talent. It serves as the ideal online home for talent to showcase their skills, attracting potential clients in a dynamic and user-friendly environment.

Our platform operates primarily as a showcase promotion service. A one-time non-recurring admin fee covers hosting and marketing, essentially providing a dedicated website for voiceover talent promotion. With direct links to each talent’s personal or agent website and social media pages, potential clients can easily connect for a lifetime of collaboration, without monthly or annual fees.

For those who prefer a hands-on approach, we offer an audition system for project handling. Audition requests are shared on the talent side. Talent set their own rates for each project, utilizing an industry rate guide for fair compensation and transparency.

When did VoicesUS Launch?

We started life in 2013 showcasing the talents of professional British voiceover artists, we expanded to the North American territories in 2015 and now have 454 voice talent  here and a further 500+ on VoicesUK with a wide variety of U.S., Canadian, British and international accents for use on TV, radio, commercial and online projects for some of the largest (and smallest!) companies in the world. All talent have home studios and their availability & turnaround time is shown on their showcase page.

Who is Behind VoicesUS?

Initially rooted in Surrey UK with the launch of VoicesUK, VoicesUS was founded by Joe Wakeford, a voice artist and composer for film and TV, shortly after joined by voice artist Rebecca who initially handled all voice artist liaison. A wider team now works remotely around the world. With a passion for audio production and performance, the duo formed a platform showcasing the best North American talent. We maintain a friendly ethos, establishing one-to-one relationships with talent, actively engaging on social media, and providing industry advice through our blog.

VoicesUS ensures fair compensation for talent and offers access to exclusive industry discounts, fostering continuous improvement in skills and services. As partners of British microphone manufacturer Sontronics, online file backup provider Carbonite, and throat pastille supplier VocalZone, among others, we continue to expand and enhance our offerings.

What is a Voice Artist Showcase?VoicesUK voice artist showcase screenshot

Showcases form the heart of our platform, allowing talent to present their audio showreels, experience, skills, vocal credentials, and headshot within fully searchable pages. Micro-managed by talent themselves, showcases include links to agent websites and social media, facilitating multiple avenues for client contact. A dedicated contact form enables private audition requests, ensuring clients find the right voice quickly.

What are Your Sources of Revenue?

Showcase membership involves a one-time non-recurring lifetime admin fee of $99.99, or $49.99 for a 6-month trial, with no rebilling for either option. To maintain high professional standards, all talent must possess a quality showreel, and the admin fee is refunded if the registration application is not approved. Our automated audition system attracts a 20% fee (added to the voice artist’s requested fee, not taken from it). For projects handled by us for hands-on client collaboration, negotiation, and project management, the fee is typically 10-20%, based on project scope.

What’s in Store for the Future?

We plan to find even more ways for our talent to be featured in media of all types in new and innovative ways, and we will continue to accept new voice talent across our North American and British networks while nurturing current members, building a welcoming & productive environment, and becoming the world’s go-to platform for voice artists wishing to be part of a growing family of curated talent… and for production companies & businesses to find the perfect voice for their projects.
