Excerpt from the non-fiction audiobook The Framework: Structure for the Black Community
Voice of Howard Barclay, wealthy owner of the mansion in Wraith the Oblivion: Afterlife from Fast Travel Games
“Mr. Dear was able to voice the different characters and their inflection quite well. He gave the book’s characters’ life and made them unique in their own way. I would listen to other audio materials by this narrator in the future.”Quella
“David S. Dear navigates the story in a way that had me forgetting David wasn’t the author. In other words, he read with such panache and ease, the words seemed to be his own. Why can’t all readers be so smooth an natural?”Dominique
“David takes each word on the page and brings them to life; so much so that you have to pause and take a minute.”Shakera
“David S. Dear’s cheeky narration was the perfect for this book. His compelling tone kept me interested through the cutaways which threatened to get me distracted. His characters’ interpretations were quite vivid and voices were distinctive enough to identify them. Dear’s voice is clear and the audio production was quite good …it was a five star narration.”Lomeraniel
I am a voice actor and voice over artist, bringing nearly 30 years of theater experience to the microphone. My voice has often been described as “smooth” and “buttery”, offering deep warm tones that are like a spa for the ears.
In all actuality I consider myself a “storyteller”. In addition to using my voice to tell stories I am also a creator and writer of a couple of audio dramas including the sci-fi adventure A Ninth World Journal and the audio comedy podcast Deconstructive Criticism.
When I’m not recording and/or writing I can be found cooking, reading, playing games of all sorts, learning to code, and spending time with my family.
