He’s one of the Southeast premiere voiceover agents, representing over 400 talents from celebrity voices to voiceover bloggers like myself. His agency fields auditions for jobs from Publix, to Walking Dead to Network promos and he does it without breaking a sweat. In fact Jeffrey Umberger runs his Atlanta based Umberger Agency almost entirely by himself, and still has time to appear locally and nationally on panels to dish out expert advice on the voiceover industry.
To say Jeffrey Umberger has an ear for voiceover would be an understatement. He is one of the most known, respected and talented agents around. And he’s done this all without a New York or L.A. office which is pretty remarkable. Jeffrey has a great ear which he developed while at another agency directing talent.
I interviewed Jeffrey Umberger at his home last year in Atlanta. We sat down and he gave me the inside scoop on how to land an agent, what components of a demo catch agents and clients attention and what helps clients book actual jobs.
Jeffrey and his expert advice are everywhere. Earlier this year he was a panelist at VO Atlanta 2014. He regularly appears as a panelist around Atlanta, does some coaching and teaches VO business success classes. Additionally he is a featured agent at the “That’s Voiceover” Career Expo in New York and will be appearing at Randy Thomas’s Voiceover Mastery Event in Ft. Myers Fl.
To top it off Jeffrey is a really nice and humble guy. Whether you are one of his top booking talent or someone who has no idea how to get started in voiceover, he relates everyone on the same level. That in itself is a talent and is the reason he has been so successful in finding the industry’s best voiceover talent.
