A few days ago we received an email from Kyle. He wanted Cousin :)…HE gets Cousin!

I would like to see just some tutorials on maybe how your Rock/Alt imaging directors set up their sessions and some of the main plug ins they are using.
VO Artists I would like to see have an interview are Malcolm Ryker, Steve Stone and Cousin Deke… are the main one I enjoy.

Thanks Guys!

We reached out to Cousin Deke. He’s Creative Services Director at KDGE FM in Dallas, Texas, an multi format imaging hero (he does 4!!), the main voice for benztown HotAC and very successful part of the Benztown VO Group. Cousin has put a lot of effort into the interview and demo!

Check out Cousin’s demo, his story, his favourite VO settings and his tips for everyone starting out in VO. An incredible detailed interview. Thanks Deke!
