I created this site(jaybeacham.com) so that you, the voice seeker, could see and hear what I have to offer in the way of voice over-narration work in German and English(and translating), acting and singing. I am affiliated with Voice123.com and Voices.com and ExploreTalent, where you can see a profile and hear some samples of my voice work.

Why a voice site?

When I was sixteen I went to work at a radio station as an announcer (KDXU St.George, Utah). I’d studied there with the owner and announcers for about two years before that. The Owner Mrs. Wink (Winkleman) liked my voice and she liked to get young men started in radio, though most went on to other pursuits later in life.

I attended one year of college, then spent two years as an LDS missionary in Austria after two months of an intensive German course at Brigham Young University.  While there, I narrated for a recorded slide presentation.  When I returned, having spent my time in Austria speaking German, I finished at my local Jr. College where I produced a weekly radio news show of the happenings at the college which aired on KDXU.

Then I went on to Brigham Young University where part of my studies were in German and communications.   I did plays and musicals for fun.

Prophet a play in the round

Prophet finalle 2 (I’m Third from the right.)                              (I’m Center front in dark shirt, light vest.)

 

Then I spent several years doing all sorts of things and raising four children. In the early eighties, I did some studio voice over work and TV ads and adapted two books into radio dramatizations. I also taught German at night.

My interest always in radio and acting, I produced radio plays and did monologue and play acting.

One such thing was the Trail of the Prophets where I and others would be stationed along a trail and portray prophets of old as if they were here speaking to people today.

See an example at:  https://youtu.be/S9av0tI8-vE

I always thought I’d get back into radio when the kids were grown and I got older. So 10 years ago I started doing websites and acting, and recording and making videos(currently working on a German tele-course).

Many people (like Hart Wixom, Outdoors writer for the Daily Spectrum newspaper, and teenager Alesha Jensen), like my voice, so I thought why not.

Thus the site. The others pages are things I’ve done elsewhere before.

So if you need an excellent voice over, a narration or some acting done, listen to my  demos at Voice123( a link is provided under the blogroll on the home page “ Hear me do Voice Overs“.)

When you like what you you hear then contact me through them or directly at  beachamj82@yahoo.com or by phone at 435-628-7809.

For my photography, see the “images of the past ” page .(find link in blogroll)

For music items and video creations of mine see the products page.

I have a farm and have products to sell so I created a link to a page for those items. These can be found on Craigslist most of the time.

I have other products too, check those out.

Be sure to check out my other sites. The links are on the right side of my home page under Blogroll. Several are about me: My Voice, Jay Beacham, Lincoln’s Ghost, How not to build a house.   Or about what I do: Hear me singing, Poetry, Images of the Past.

I sing and have made recordings in 14 languages.

A testimonial from a satisfied customer:
Jay Beacham has one of the best voices in America. That’s a bold statement if you don’t love the sound of a father, grandfather, Santa Claus, Abraham Lincoln, a deep base and baritone country singer, a peaceful and relaxing conversation on the radio during a long drive or between songs while going about your day, that feels like old fashioned home cooking in the oven or Thanksgiving meal or beside a crackling home chimney fire place sipping hot cocoa and marshmallows cozy under the blanket with soft lights blinking on the evergreen tree. That’s how it feels when Jay Beacham speaks and why I had him introduce one of my New York Broadway singer friends in one of our marketing ads, nobody else could’ve done it right. Unfortunately in one of my favorite Hollywood movies they killed Jay’s character in the first 10 minutes but not until after he had saved the life of one of the princesses and main character. And that’s how Jay has been his entire life, the unsung hero, who sings his own songs and the hundreds of fans who’ve had the God given grace to be able to hear them have lavished Jay with all the love and praise that he should’ve received at the Emmy’s and Oscar’s. He has actively sold his brother’s paintings of their natural surrounds of Grand Canyon style desert scenery right in the heart of Zion’s Park which is a fitting name for the decent folks who live in that most gloriously unique western style frontier of America’s truly wild west countryside. If old style southern talking and drawl ever melted the hearts of the ladies and lit the fire of any lonely man, if ever it was popular or right for such a voice to be put in the lime light and mainstream of famedom like so many living legends before him why not now? Why not a voice that captures all that essence yet is a little more Midwest, maybe even almost East Coast while fully embracing the Southwestern brew we’ve all be yearning for to make a comeback, because Elvis is surely alive, but until he makes some new songs we’ve got Jay. My greatest dream in life was for Neil Diamond to perform again, make some new songs and perform them himself instead of selling them to all the Top artists on the planet, and finding Jay was like my dreams coming true. Wish he could make some more songs. But even if all he ever does is talk on the radio, or on my ads, it takes me back to the good old days of mother’s home cooking and family holidays by the fireside sipping hot cocoa and marshmallows. I can’t imagine a dry eye in the entire audience even if it was the largest Colosseum in the world or every TV and cell phone on the planet, if somebody gave him a script worthy of his voice and let it penetrate the universe, it would revolutionize humanity and the planet, forever. He won’t be around forever, we need to take full advantage, he’s there on his farm just building cabins, singing for the ladies on some little known online social network, breaking hearts one per day, and that voice can be yours because Hollywood and the Music industry wouldn’t know talent if it hit them like a barn hits a drunken teenager swinging off the rafters into the hay bales and mistakes the moon for the ground and goes where only his dreams can take him and lands on earth instead. Perhaps it’s the fate of humanity to always miss the mark, to never realize its full potential, and pass up every good opportunity, except for Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, those one or two who by whatever twist miraculously found that diamond that nobody else recognized and became the most famous companies and men and women on the planet who we all dream we could be like and yet Jay is right here in our hands and we have this moment to make the right choice or be just one of the regular humans on this planet, normal, forgettable. Jay will make you unforgettable if you know how to market him so that he markets you!
That’s what I’m doing, and hopefully I’ll get him first before anybody else! If you’re looking to use Jay, then that means the race is on! May the best company win!
