At Phantom City Studio we specialize in recording DEMOS (Music Demos and Voice Over Demos):

The following is a quick break down between Music Demos and Voice Over Demos:

Music Demos: 
A demo (from "demonstration") is a song or group of songs recorded for limited circulation or reference use rather than for general public release. A demo is a way for a musician to approximate their ideas in a fixed format, such as cassette tape, compact disc, or digital audio files, and to thereby pass along those ideas to record labels, record producers, or to other artists.

Musicians often use demos as quick sketches to share with bandmates or arrangers or simply for personal reference during the songwriting process; in other cases a songwriter might make a demo to send to artists in hopes of having the song professionally recorded, or a music publisher may need a simple recording for publishing or copyright purposes. 

Voice-Over Demos:
A demo (from "demonstration") In order to get voice-over work, you need a voice-over demo. Your demo needs to be your best work you can do at the present time to show prospective clients and potential agents what you can do. Furthermore, it also needs to be something you feel comfortable assigning your name to and marketing to the public.

Your prospective clients can listen to the demo and evaluate your services firsthand. Creating a variety of voice-over demos rounds out your portfolio, showcasing the styles of voice acting that you can perform.

Crossing over to a voiceover career from what seems an unlikely profession is not unheard of.

We’ve heard of Indiana Pacers C.J. Watson sending out his first demo to agents all over Los Angeles and taking on voiceover classes. Though he sees himself managing his own NBA Team in the future, he is set on pursuing his dream side job – voiceover commercial work. 

There is Paddy ‘Lord’ Ashdown, the Chair of the Liberal Democrats of this year’s General Election Team, who joined a SOHO site early this year. Though experienced in television and radio presenting, also narrating the audiobook version of his latest book, it still caught his fellow Liberal Democrats in a surprise when he branched out as a voice talent.
Of course there are those who took the call of voiceover more seriously – more than just a side job, they made it into a career. 

So we asked a few voice actors what got them started in the industry.
Mark Atherlay had a regular 9 to 5 corporate job, but he always had the knack for imitating voices. “I really didn’t have the passion to climb the corporate ladder while working in beige cubicles for 40-60 hours a week.” Seeing Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire was like an epiphany – his talent in voice imitating can actually be a career. He quit his job, took some classes, got an agent and the rest, as they say, is history.
Another guy who discovered his talent early on is Andrew MacRae. “From a very early age, my siblings and I were constantly impersonating TV and movie characters to the point where we can’t answer a phone call from one another nowadays without using a famous quote.” But life took him on a long career in hospitality. After a twist in fate and rekindling of old passions, he decided to give the voice industry a shot. “A few courses, some community radio and a ton of pestering questions later, I scored my first VO gig and haven’t looked back.”
Wendy Kay White was a photo editor at a large daily newspaper, doing voice work for commercials would have been a conflict of interest. “I always knew I would enjoy voice work.” So the first she did after quitting her career of 29 years in the newspaper industry was to sign up for a voiceover class. 

For JoJo Jensen it was “dumb luck.” She found herself recording a commercial for the company she was working for and had the best time doing it. That prompted her to quit her job. “I found a voice over coach and have never looked back. I’m closing in on 20 years as a voice talent!”

Voice Over Tip: 

A producer might say to you, "We just want this read to be nice and warm and natural." What does that actually mean? 

What it means is that they don't want you to sound like a voice over artist. They don't want you to sound like a radio jock. They don't want you to sound like an announcer. They just want you to sound warm and natural. Here are a couple of techniques you can try to sound warm and natural...
