Once again WOW! You are a master of your craft!...I have to tell you that I really liked how skillfully you changed the text of the narration. Everything fits just perfectly and flows seamlessly.
Andy Taylor is a born story teller. Regardless of the copy – live announce or video narration - he takes audiences on a journey, always delivering desired IMPACT through an innate understanding of each read's unique tone. With his original style, he consistently conveys the STORY behind each script, rather than simply punctuating WORDS on a page -- a rare gift among 'announcers' in sport. His talent is his voice, his authenticity. Include his versatility, professionalism and ability to effortlessly adapt under the pressure of voicing the largest attended annual sporting event in the world...and you know why Andy has been a valuable member of our team as the "Voice of the US Open" for nearly 15-years.
For the past year and a half, Andy Taylor has been the voice behind our successful television campaign that has resulted in Don Wessel Honda of Springfield being named the number one new car dealer in southwest Missouri...Andy is very valuable for his professionalism, quick turnaround, and creative input. His work has always accomplished our goals and the results speak for themselves...I count Andy as an integral member of our team and look forward to many more years of a great partnership.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Andy for at least a decade as announcer of live events at the US Open and elsewhere - besides his obviously mellifluous and authoritative voice, there is no one better in adapting to the changes and unexpected diversions of live performance...he makes what can be a difficult adventure smooth and delightful.
I'm incredibly grateful to you for your time and incredible talent and professionalism...the read is perfect! I’m very grateful man, this is so good. Thank you! You’ve captured all the subtleties and emotion perfectly. I totally could see hearing this on the History Channel or one of those. Very Ken Burns man, very.
