More About Tom Test

Freelance Political VO

Tom Test was born to parents who were raised in rural Pennsylvania (Punxsutawney, to be specific!), but moved to the Detroit area in 1960 to find better economic and educational opportunities for their children. His father owned a successful auto body shop business and created spectacular hot rods that often appeared in the pages of industry magazines. Tom moved from his blue-collar upbringing to graduate with a BBA in Marketing from the University of Michigan/Ann Arbor, where he paid his way through college on his own by working in restaurants along with scholarship money from his SAT scores. He could not have made without also enjoying the benefits of Pell Grants and Guaranteed Student Loans. He is the first member of his extended family to graduate from a state college.

Tom became a full-time voice talent in 1994, and has recorded enough national spots over his career that it is very likely you’re heard him before. He has a great vocal agility that makes him extremely directable. Tom is often cast as the “warm and authoritative” voice of hospitals, higher ed and banks, but is versatile enough to be cast in real person and dialogue spots, as well energetic retail campaigns. One of his campaigns won an award for “Watchability,” defined as “willingness to watch the entire spot, rather than change the channel.” Tom has appeared both on- and off-camera on numerous campaigns that have won Telly and other advertising awards.

You may have heard Tom’s voice for the Leatherman Tread multi-tool on YouTube, described by one newspaper as “uber-masculine.” Or his quirky retro announcer for the Five Below stores chain. He has recorded thousands of spots heard on Radio, TV, Digital and streaming services for clients like Coke, Toyota, Quilted Northern, Humana, Bonefish Grill, Bank of America, Benjamin Moore, Disney, Williams-Sonoma, and Yelp Eat24. Tom has also voiced corporate narrations and training programs for dozens of Fortune 500 firms such as GE, Boeing, Shell Oil, USAA, Lockheed Martin, Chase Bank, Southwest Airlines and Samsung – and many more.

Political Issues & Causes:

In addition to providing voiceovers for Democrats, Progressives and mission-driven organizations, Tom’s number one priority is ensuring the philosophy of “one person, one vote” is restored, so our nation can enjoy a truly viable representative democracy. “One person, one vote” has been eroded by gerrymandering, thinly-veiled voter suppression tactics, dark money flowing into campaigns due to the Citizens United ruling, and the anti-democratic impact of the Electoral College.
