A new Canadian voice has made itself known nestled between the Ottawa and Madawaska rivers in the beautiful town of Arnprior, Ontario. It is in this picturesque setting that Drift Studio, owned and operated by James Hrkach, provides voice-over and audio production services for clients in the region and abroad.
Recently, James developed a demo for a children’s audio product that he designed at his studio and has applied for a number of grants to help him see the project through to fruition. James has plans to hire other voice artists to record for the project to complement his voice and artistic vision.
Although James has operated Drift Studio for thirty years, it was in his new partnership with the voice casting web service Voices.com where he found inspiration to dedicate more time to recording voice-overs and pursuing a career as a professional Canadian voice artist.
Voices.com marketing director Stephanie Ciccarelli says, "James’ voice has a clear, Canadian accent, neutral and polished. He also has the ability to create a variety of European and American accents with comedic flair, demonstrating his versatility as a theatrical performer.”
James’ performance background spans twenty years and includes experience in the fields of directing, stage acting, and public speaking. A self-taught musician and composer, James is able to offer musical services in addition to voice-over.
