Hi, I'm Brent Halfyard, founder of Halfyard Studios. I'm from Nanaimo BC and now call sunny Richmond my permanent home. My performance background began at a young age playing bass, guitar, singing, and performing for many years on stage. I cut my teeth in radio with CFNR, and soon knew voice over was going to be my career.
I've worked with many amazing coaches over the years and continue to work with top voice coaches to not only hone my own skills, but to assist in my methods of teaching voice over and performance skills to my students. Teaching was an unplanned aspect of my career, but I soon found it very rewarding to see my young actors and adult actors learn performance skills to help their career, some even booking big jobs as a result of my coaching! Coaching voice over is both challenging at times and always rewarding.
I still write songs and produce music, but voice over, voice coaching and audio production are the main elements of my career. Have a listen to some of my voice demos on my partner site: NARRATORMAN.COM
