Often in life, it is not so much what we say, it is how we say. And perhaps no one knows this better than Voice Actor, Keith Kirkland.
Growing up Keith was often told that his voice was special, that it had a certain nuance that was unique and resonated pleasingly with people. Born in Richmond, Virginia, Keith moved to Florida when he was very young and has always enjoyed entertaining others with his voice. Whether it was singing in his High School Choir, mimicking TV commercials, or doing impressions, Keith’s voice was always happily on show. So, it was not surprising that Keith expected that when he grew up, he would forge a career in a field that would put his talents to good use.
But life has a way of getting in its own way sometimes, and rather than pursuing a career as a singer or actor, Keith actually joined the Marine Corps, where he served honorably for four years. After his stint in the Military, Keith returned to college where he obtained an Associate of Science Degree in 3D Computer Animation. Opening up yet another channel by which to share his talent with a new audience, creating original soundtracks for the animated characters he created.
As any struggling artist will tell you, talent alone is not always enough to pay the bills. So, while Keith worked on his voice acting on the side, taking voice training courses as time and resources would permit, he paid the bills by expanding his computer skills and building a niche for himself in the pipe building industry. Working up and down the Eastern seaboard for several years in his chosen field, Keith moved to Panama City in 2018 and is now under contract with a local shipbuilding company, designing 3D pipe systems for their commercial and military projects.
All the while, Keith has been preparing for the next chapter in his varied and interesting life. Having completed work on his well-appointed home recording studio, Keith’s new venture, KEITH KIRKLAND – VOICE ACTOR, LLC is now open for business! In addition to traditional voice-over work for radio and television commercials, Keith’s sublime guy-next door cantor lends itself perfectly to creating polished and very professional audio menus for business phone systems. Keith also offers narration services, for documentaries, audiobooks, and the like.
You have heard the expression, ‘it must be seen to be believed’, well in Keith’s case it must be heard to be appreciated. I would encourage anyone who owns a business, runs a charity, works in media, or is in any way directly or otherwise, involved in advertising, to take the time to listen to Keith’s demo reels on this website.
