This is a fun little boost happening for the rest of the month. I love working with AHAB. My first job with them was when I realized: Heck, if they're taking me seriously as part of this industry then it's time to stop beating around the bush and take myself seriously too. Such a great resource.

"We're super excited to announce our March Voice of the Month! Congratulations to Josh Innerst!
Josh Innerst is a theatre artist and audiobook narrator based in the Midwest, where he also works in Film/TV. Josh has spent most of his career on stages across the country such as the Utah & Colorado Shakespeare Festivals, Cleveland Play House, and many years as a company member at the American Shakespeare Center. When he's not onstage or in the booth, Josh passes his time cooking, traveling, and spending time with his wife and dogs.
We'll be taking a BTS glimpse of some insights and experiences inside the recording booth throughout the month. Continue to learn what important piece of advice Josh received 👇
Ahab: What’s the best advice you’ve received as a voiceover actor that you would share to someone just starting out in the industry?
Josh: During a coaching session with Narrator.Life, the wonderful Vikas Adam gave me some great advice: If you're away from your booth on a theatre contract and feel like you're unable to sharpen your narration skills, make it a daily practice to pick up some text and cold read aloud for 10-15 minutes a day. It can be anything: a novel, a magazine article, a short story, etc. Keep honing your cold-read skills, and you'll find that once you're back in the booth, you'll be sharper than you were when you left."
I'm an actor and voice over artist. Shakespeare pays the bills but I make the food...
