We treat every track as a finished commercial with all the production values as though it will go to air. In the recording session that can mean recording many takes and constructing the perfect track for the final commercial within the demo.
What you hear in a voice-over demo from The Commercial Market is what you can at least expect to hear in your commercials.

Jeff went above and beyond to help me create my first voice demo. He offered thoughtful, practical and expert advice. Working from his incredible home studio, Jeff creates a fun and relaxed environment. When Jeff played my demo I couldn't believe it was my voice”.

I thoroughly enjoyed the recording experience with Jeff. It all begins with the initial phone conversation where Jeff gets to know you and your intentions. In production, he offers extremely useful and thoughtful direction in the comforts of his home studio. I am grateful to work with a producer who thinks outside the box and can create a demo that stands out among the norm”.

It's all about the detail in this industry and Jeff ensures he captures it all when working with you. His ability to direct you and positively construct you is a true testament to his knowledge, experience and expertise in his field. What I loved about working with Jeff, is that he is not afraid to have a bit of a laugh in the studio and that always makes it a pleasure to be behind the microphone”.
Jeff Watkinson has been an absolute pleasure to work with. As someone with little studio experience I needed as much help as I could get. From initial discussions about my demo to the final mix he has been efficient, knowledgeable and super friendly. I'm really happy with how my demo turned out and will certainly use Jeff again for future recording work that comes my way.”.
The moment I walked into Jeff's studio, I felt welcomed, relaxed and comfortable (very important for a voice artist!)...it was like meeting an old friend. At the same time, his approach is highly professional. The recording session was smooth and heaps of fun as I felt totally free to express my voice while being expertly guided by his direction. It was an absolute delight to work with Jeff. The product he produced is of the highest quality available, where he has clearly put a lot of time and thought into each individual track and his production and music choice perfectly compliments my voice. I could not have hoped for a better demo. I have worked with many audio producers over the past 15 years and Jeff is definitely one of the best. I would love the opportunity to work with Jeff again.”.
If you feel your demo is no longer a true representation of your work, we can give it the impact it needs by artfully editing, adding and recording fresh new material that will make you excited again about the commercials you are cast to record.

As well as being an excellent director, Jeff really knows how to make my voice cut through any music bed.
After working with Jeff for over 30 years producing some of my best commercials, I am really impressed with his new studio set up. It has a great feel and clean sound.
But the thing I like most is his headphones go up to 11.”
Recording voice with the exceptionally clear Sennheiser 416 microphone is just the beginning of the high quality end product.
