Today we’d like to introduce you to Kabir Singh.
Hi Kabir, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
A born poet that learned the art of communicating through the practice of voice over. I started my journey in voice acting in 2010 with no previous experience/acting experience. I used the practice of spoken word to guide my learning stages through the years. In ten years, I have grown to a full-time voice over studio with repeat clients globally. My clients have included: Nike, Google, Pandora, Pepsi, NBA and many other global brands. My signature style is highly sought after by clients because it connects and elevates the words on the page. It’s raw, real and honest. My commitment is to truth. It is my professional and moral compass. I see each day as a memory and am grateful to be lucky enough to have the next one.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There are many struggles one faces on this journey. Oftentimes, business and life are no different. The struggles of one’s ego, the struggles of expectations, the struggles of comparison and the struggle of lack of progress. Specifically, in voice over, the industry has changed drastically over the past few years which has included its own set of new struggles. For example, back in the days a voice actor could rely on external agents, producers, studios to do business. Now, a voice actor must be committed to learning all aspects of the trade and marketing oneself through their website – as any other small business would. The relationship between agents/managers is still well respected and vital to longevity in this industry. But it’s more of a favorable partnership and collaboration. This is the struggle of the business of voice acting. The performance struggles present it’s own unique challenges. For example, how does one sound “real” as a voice actor? Authenticity is not so easily achieved as one might hope – but it is highly admirable. To look in one’s own mirror will bring it on side of challenges and struggles. For me, that has been a constant compass in guiding me to improve the things within myself that needed improving. For example- my excess thirst for pleasure/greed, etc. Often, I hope for a smooth road and sometimes I’m lucky enough to get them. Most of the time though, the bumpy road is way more fun.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I’m a professional voice actor from Los Angeles, California. I study and teach the art of voice acting and communicating. I was born a poet and philosopher. I’m an observer of life. My business represents many global brands and includes such names as: Nike, Google, NFL, Intel. I am most proud of representing clients such as Nintendo, Mazda and the NFL on a national level. Representing clients such as T-Mobile as their exclusive customer service IVR/Telephony voice. These moments make me smile because I remember starting out as a voice actor ten years ago – only with a glimmer of hope and blurry dream. Most clients hire me because of my authenticity and poetic cadence. I don’t necessarily like labeling my voice but the industry has its ways. Over the years, I’ve developed a certain flavor and swagger to my voice because of the surroundings I was raised in. My voice is urban and multicultural. It represents an honest perspective of an upbringing that was affected by many cultures and races. For one which I’m really grateful for.
So maybe we end on discussing what matters most to you and why?
My mother and my sisters. Like others, we have seen our share of darkness in life. My mom is my angel. She is the reason I try to reflect love in my everyday living.
