    I think this sounds amazing! You have a great voice! My only thought is maybe saying the last word “today” more like “two-day” instead of “tuh-day.”

    @amy-grace Thanks so much for the kind words! It's always super nice to get feedback on one's vocal sound, I tend to think every other VO guy sounds more pleasant. Maybe it's how curly-haired people often want straight hair and vice versa. 🧐

    I totally agree on the "today" feedback. I actually knew as I was editing it that I didn't land that right, but since it was just for fun and I was pressed for time, I left it. While listening to an older Mission Audition episode recently, I became conscious that I might not be saying the word "today" in the most ideal way. Apparrently, I tend to say "tuh-day" or "teh-day" and I've been trying to correct it more. I find it awkward to pronounce it "two-day". I think it's because I close my lips kind of tightly to make an "oooh" or "two" sound and open them wider to say the "y" in "day" or "stay". It feels unnatural to try and make those two sounds so close together. I'm probably just super weird in that regard 😝

    Hi All


    I have recently joined Voices.com and I am very excited. I have applied for a number of jobs but still no answer which is fine as I am starting out. But what would really be helpful if I could get some feedback on what I should do and what steps should I take to better move forward.
