Performance Notes
An excerpt from a nonfiction book about emotions and business. It's a warm, enthusiastic, almost folksy feel. My skills are such that I can sound enthusiastic and folksy, authoritative and knowledgeable, personable and warm, even mysterious or ominous. Or some combination thereof. I have a Studiobricks isolation booth which allows me to record clear, crisp audio. It also allows me to immerse myself in the narrative and produce a clean, polished, professional narration with seamless flow and pronunciation that you will be proud of and will thrill your audience. I am an Audible Approved Producer, which means I also have the technical expertise and experience others may lack. It’s a distinction gained only over time.

Urban grit

Category : Fiction
Language : English
Gender : Male
Accent : American-Urban
Vocal Style : Urban/Street
Performance Notes
This is a heavy scene on the streets of East LA, a gritty drug scene with some street lingo and profanity. I am at my best recording tense thrillers, ghostly tales, horror, military fiction and nonfiction. I also love dystopian and apocalyptic stories. A narrator's job is to tell the story the author has penned, to bring the characters alive, to let the listener hear both the spoken and the unspoken—the written and the unwritten. I use inflections of voice, carefully timed pauses, and other subtleties of the craft to bring this about. I have a Studiobricks isolation booth which allows me to record clear, crisp audio. It also allows me to immerse myself in the story, to "feel" the characters and sink into their world. I do a clean, polished, professional narration that you will be proud of and will thrill your fans. I am an Audible Approved Producer, which means I have the technical expertise and experience others lack. It’s a distinction gained only over time.

"Edison McDaniels is a strongly committed and passionate narrator of audiobooks, whose care and expertise for every spoken word and sentence he delivers puts him in the top tier of audiobook narrator/producers. We are proud to be affiliated with him." —Square One Publishers, Inc. "Mango Publishing is very lucky to have the honor of publishing legendary author Leonard Carpenter, who wrote the million-selling Conan the Barbarian series we all know and love. Therefore, we were extremely selective when choosing a narrator for his novel LUSITANIA LOST. Edison McDaniels was the only one who could bring this marvelous story to life.  He did a brilliant job. Give it a listen and you'll soon agree!" Brenda Knight Editorial Director Mango Publishing  ••• "Edison McDaniels is on his way to being one of the superstars of audiobook narration. Edison brings novels to life in a way few others can match. With attention to detail both in the narration and his interaction with the author or publisher, he delivers a first rate experience. If Edison offers to narrate your novel, stop all other auditions and sign him. We did."  Tony Acree Publisher Hydra Publications, LLC  ••• "I second Tony Acree's endorsement of Edison McDaniels. He does a great job, and I am very pleased that my novels are his first narrations for Hydra Publications." Dr. Arlan Andrews, Sr., Author of Silicon Blood and The Valley of the Shaman ••• "If you had asked me in the beginning if I would have imagined a mature, African-American voice being perfect for Joel's story, I would never have imagined it would have worked out so well. Edison's voice captured the tone of the story." Carter Bowman, Author of Part Timers ••• "Edison McDaniels' narration of my novel, SILICON BLOOD, made me feel as though I were listening to the story for the first time. His edgy presentation captures exactly the tone I intended for the near-future, dystopian, noir tale of terror, guilt, and betrayal. A great job!" Dr. Arlan Andrews Sr., Author of Silicon Blood ••• "The patina of mystery and mysticism he is able to import by voice intonation alone gives the audiobook version an added dimension of realism. Edison, you captured my intentions perfectly." Dr. Arlan Andrews Sr., Author of The Valley of the Shaman
