Let me join the party, and together we’ll make your story epic!


From this Voiceover Talent to you, Welcome!

You’ve found a creative partner who will accurately address your every need and direction. I’m Jordan Drayer, a voice actor specializing in characters for animation and video games, corporate narration and commercials. Yes, this savvy millennial solves your problems with a wide range of services, voices, accents, and reasonable rates.

On top of that, I guarantee quick turnaround (less than 24 hours when possible) and a charming demeanor 😉 Using skills from years of classical music study (French horn no less), I’ll breathe life into your script. This also makes me easy to direct!

Vocal Qualities

When you’re looking for a voiceover talent, it would help to know the vocal qualities. I stand out with a naturally low, articulate voice despite my youth. Descriptions of my voice include warm, low, sarcastic, intelligent, sassy, young/millennial, friendly, interesting, and articulated. My personality reflects this, being mostly calm, witty, empathic, and observant.

My voiceover talent forte lies in character acting for anime and video games. I am quite well-rounded though, trained in many styles. This includes narration, such as for audiobooks, corporate narration, industrial narration, technology explainer videos, e-learning, medical narration, and automotive. I can also help you with commercials for radio, television, and Internet. You can learn more about my Voice Over Services here.

Demos and Style

Voiceover Demos and Style – Characters, Narration, Commercial

My forte lies in acting, creating characters for animation, anime and video games. I enjoy narration and commercials as well. I’ve been told my natural voice is intelligent, articulate, flat (not announcer-y) and conversational. It’s lower than most young women’s voices. This adds a sense of authority. You can find all of my voiceover demos in one easy place. Please read on for more details of each style.

 

Characters

With a large range, my voice is suited for many archetypes in animation, anime, and video games. Female soldiers, teenagers, pre-teens, creepy witches, and young moms are just a few. The breadth of vocal qualities includes articulate, nasal, stuffed up, vocal fry, rasp, breathy, gravelly, and sultry. I have experience dubbing, which is a ton of fun. I do a variety of accents. It’s quite easy to learn new ones too. You can find more in the Backstory. You can also go here to learn more about my Voice Over Services.

Narration

I possess the calm, authoritative pace required in corporate narration and tech videos. If you want to engage younger listeners or employees, all the better! Casual yet in charge is my favorite style. I can keep their attention and educate. I can enhance your story, be it:

    • Audiobook
    • Training Videos
    • Industrial Narration
    • Technology/Product Explainer Videos
    • e-Learning
    • Corporate Narration
    • Medical Narration

Commercials

Commercials abound in our society. To truly stand out, the story must be epic. You’re selling something that helps others and brings joy! I would be honored to join you. When you need an articulate voiceover, young and intelligent, I will make your story memorable. I can best help with:

    • Health Care
    • Healthy living (yoga, health foods, exercise…)

    • Pharmaceuticals

Backstory

Setting the Scene    

Becoming a voiceover actor: It all began one day in October 1990…well, we can skip a bit.

After graduating from Florida State in 2013, I was at a loss as to what to do! I went through school believing I’d play French horn in the London Symphony Orchestra one day. Though I finished my music degree, I decided it wasn’t for me.

After a summer of seriously considering military service and existential crisis, I decided why not voiceover? It always intrigued me, plus acting in general, since middle school, watching anime, watching behind the scenes extras to movies like The Lord of the Rings. So why not?

So I Went For It

I started to learn different voiceover styles and genres from various teachers. Suddenly I discovered a world of helpful, warm people, incredible voice talents, and fun times. My sister and I as kids kept up a nightly story, involving characters from favorite series, and I realized this was “doing the story,” as we called it, in real life and for money! And I’m now in Los Angeles, veritable capital of animation, a dream come true, ready for even more voice acting work than Dallas and Orlando, my previous homes, provided.

How it Comes Together

You see, I use not only acting training but years of classical music education to achieve nuanced performance. To be a French horn player, you have to know nuances! After years of band and orchestra, you’ll also find me easy to direct; now you’re the conductor of this voiceover actor!

Music trained my ear to learn and act in accents easily. The list broadly includes several English accents such as Yorkshire and Cockney, Scottish, Irish, Australian, Russian, French, Japanese, Punjab, and American ones. I also speak French and Japanese and continue to study languages in general as a hobby (working on Spanish now).

More Personal Details

Let’s start with my love of travel. My list of visits includes many countries, given my short life, such as Tanzania, Japan, the Bahamas, places in western Europe, the UK, and Canada. I also lived in various places of the US. I was born in Houston, a kid in Las Vegas, and since then Orlando, Dallas, and now Los Angeles! 

I’m a huge nerd, so in my spare time, you can find me playing RPGs or puzzle games, reading fantasy books, watching anime or movies, or playing with my cat Huck. I do yoga and walking and drink a lot of tea too, so there’s a healthy tree-hugger side too.
