Don't Hate the Ear!

By Stephanie Ciccarelli

January 8, 2014

Drew Montgomery voice talentAs with most voice talents, my ego forces me to take a sneak peek at past auditions to see which ones received a "thumbs up," and which ones had simply been listened to, signified by the dreadful "ear" logo.

Sadly, I always had more "ears" than thumbs! Yes, over time, I grew to hate the "ear" logo! A big, ugly, oversized green ear. Who needs it?

All that changed recently, when I happened to look back at my Voices bookings over the past year.

It turns out that over ONE THIRD of the clients who actually BOUGHT my auditions had AT FIRST simply given me "the ear" upon first listen, and NOT a "thumbs up!" I'm guessing other VO talent can back me up on this.

So the moral of the story 2014, don't hate "the ear." It can definitely be your best friend!
