ABOUT DOUG TURKEL
You know how every time you show up at a cocktail party, there’s always that one beefy guy with the “Monster Truck” voice who hears what you do and explains how everyone tells him he should do voiceovers?
Doug’s not that guy.
Doug’s the guy people go to when they specifically don’t want that guy. He’s like your brother-in-law (the one you like), only with a Pro Tools based, ISDN-connected studio and some sweet Neumann and Sennheiser microphones. Over the years, he’s quietly become the voice behind more than 10,000 spots (really!) and a couple of TV networks.
He’s the Promo voice of HSN – The Home Shopping Network, he’s narrated hour-long documentaries and shows for Discovery Channel and The Travel Channel, and has recently done national spots for KFC, Kellogg’s and T-Mobile.
ABOUT BRAD VENABLE
He was once described as “holding down the XY…both generations…and chromosomes.” Brad smiled at the appropriately geeky compliment.
Brad talks for a living. Incessantly.
You’ve probably heard Brad’s voice at least twice in your life and never even knew it, because Brad’s voice is heard on everything attached to a speaker. One day, you may be near Brad, and then you’ll hear him even without a speaker.
Somewhere in the world, he’s probably talking right now, and that’s oddly comforting. He could be talking somewhere, and yet could be sleeping at the same time. *mimes ‘mind blown’*
What Will Rogers said about liking the weather in Oklahoma could apply to someone who said they’ve never heard Brad’s voice: “Just wait.”
Computer tech, comic book collector, pop culture nerd, and avid gamer, Brad covers about every sub-culture cliché known to man, and can still sound like the don’t-dare-call-him-coolest hipster to ever wear clothes ironically. Now that’s irony for you.
Brad lives most of his life in a box, yet was not actually the inspiration for the Alice in Chains song. That was a point that needed clarifying.
Brad loves what he does, and does what he loves, with his beautiful wife Katie always by his side. Except when she’s at work. Then she’s not quite by his side.
