Thanks in advance! You know how it is...you've listened to your demo dozens of times, and realize some "fresh ears," would be helpful to know all is good (or not). Would appreciate your input/feedback before replacing the older one currently on my site. Thanks fellow VOs! Here's the link for the new demo:

(Just click the yellow play button for 1 minute demo)

Well, I'm "detached" from the commercial world (I do mostly narration work and don't watch a lot of TV or listen to much radio), but I liked what I heard!

Hi Tracie, the clips are all good and representative of your work, but I would think about taking that first clip and moving it back. The staggered read just seems odd for your first impression. And a tiny thing... most JC Penney ads I hear are much peppier than your read. I'm not saying that's a better way, just that it stood out a bit to me.

Onward and upward!

Nice sound. Demo needs to say "Why her?" Which is an invitation to decide. You are at the stage where you can afford to play with subtleties.

Full Skype consultation only 1.09p (cost of a packet of Rich Tea biscuits for Bess)

That's a real offer!

Philip is a very generous and genuinely interesting person.

I know, I took him up on his offer once Smile

The Cullen Skink, the Indian Restaurant, the Scottish Breakfast, and the 99s were all outstandingly good, as was his company.

Philip, I hope you sent her your Skype address !
