Doing voice over work and voice acting has always been one of Frank’s favorite creative outlets ever since he went to broadcasting school. When Frank first started, he would find creative ways to make a commercial, promo or voice character stand out and be noticed.
In the 1990’s Frank was doing a lot of work as a DJ for night clubs and weddings. After a while, Frank knew that the hip fast passed lifestyle of being a DJ would not stay with him for very long. So by 2000, he focused his attention on a career in radio.
By 2001 Frank James Bailey was working at 2 stations in Toledo, OH! A classic rock station 94.5 WXKR & a country station, WKKO - K100. Also at this time in his career he was producing radio imaging liners and promos using the audio editing program Cool Edit Pro. That program is now Adobe Audition.
In 2003, while Frank worked in Findlay, OH at 100.5 WKXA, he produced a lot of promos for the station, using his own voice. Frank also produced a lot of promos using the stations imaging voice too. The voice guy would send the station the dry audio, Frank would produce it using sound effects and music beds.
Between 2003 and 2008 is when Frank James Bailey really honed his production editing skills.
By 2007, even though Frank was still working in radio, he started to venture out on his own more with voice overs, producing radio imaging liners for Internet stations and voicing commercials for new clients.
In November of 2008 Frank James Bailey entered a talent contest in Cincinnati, OH, The Applause Model and Talent competition. In this contest he concentrated more on his vocal ability then what he looked like on the outside. (Frank knows he’s not a runway model). Frank did a lot of ad-libbing with voice characters on stage. At the end of the contest Frank was excited to find out that talent agencies wanted to talk to him about his voice acting!
Now, at the present time (2012) Frank James Bailey is a full time Professional Voice Talent. Since Frank is a family man, (married since 2006 with 2 kids), Frank believes this the best job for him. Frank can work from home and he no longer has to move from place to place trying to find the next radio job.
Frank James Bailey does voice overs for many clients all over the word. Frank works out of his professional recording studio in his basement.
