    Black Lion is an amazing Voice actor who knows what hes doing hes quick on his work and has amazing voice talent.

  • @th3overseer

    BlackLion professionally and skillfully contributed voice files for the project I'm working on. He had a good read on the character, took direction well, and had perfect audio quality. Normally I need to do at least a bit of clean-up on audio I receive, but that wasn't necessary here. I enjoyed working with him, and hope to do so again in the future.

  • @ugly-blue-hat-productions

    There are not enough words in all the languages combined to describe how utterly, insanely amazing David is. He's the unicorn of voice actors -- a singer, character actor, narrator -- he's incredibly communicative, turns his work around quickly, and he engaged with our little community of voice actors so thoroughly it's like he's always been part of the team. And his voice is like warm butter on your soul -- his performance as Frederick Douglass (FREDERICK DOUGLASS!) was everything we dreamed of -- humble, deeply passionate and powerful, full of humanity -- these are things that are nearly impossible to package together, and David did it for 15 pages. David comes highly recommended for any project, from fiction to non-fiction, narration to character acting to singing. We will absolutely find excuses to work with him again!

  • @tyber

    David responds to all messages quickly, does excellent work and is a pleasure to interact with through it all. What more could you ask for? Hire this man.

  • @casting---studio-ngaire

    Prompt and professional communication, based on our experience we can recommend DavidCookBlackLIon.

  • @the-scrubvengers

    It was a privilege to work with someone as talented as David. He was quick to respond to messages, patient, understanding and delivered an amazing voice over performance that far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommended David for your projects. I personally look forward to working with him on all my future projects.

  • @abicadabri

    David not only performed excellently within his Audition, but to top it off, his response time was spot on. It's without a doubt he was a great pick for this project, and judging by his past pieces of VO, he may well be a great pick for yours. With that said, I'd seriously recommend DavidCookBlackLion!

  • @joshua-cookingham

    Was part of a dubbing project with David. He has one of the richest voices I've ever heard, and got completely into character even with a limited amount of lines.
    Very professional, definitely recommended.

  • @litas

    David Cook is super easy and fun to work with. He has several roles in our production. His voice is deep, bold and unique. Always timely. Always professional. We have worked with him for the past 6 months and hope to continue to do so for years to come.

    Wow. All I have to say is wow. This man is a legend with a godly voice. He sounds 1,000 times more professional than anyone else on this website. It's David's world and we're just living in it.

  • @mrjorgensen2001

    David is a Great Voice Actor! a Good Deep Voice And Good Line-Delivery. Would Work With Him, Again. ;)

  • @jackson-kesecker

    David Cook is a professional. His voice is smooth, rich, and makes me believe in whatever he is telling me. Not only is the sound of his voice pleasing to the ear, but his ability to act and channel his emotions and feelings into his work is outstanding. And to top it all off, he is a good person. A kind person. If you are considering hiring David for your project, do it. You will not be disappointed.

  • @killincat

    I've worked with David a few times since the end of 2020, and he's always been pleasant, and on point. He makes sure that his audio quality is the highest it can be, and always delivers his lines on time. He's a fantastic dude to work with! I wholly recommend.

  • @avatarodin

    I definitely recommend David. Great voice, quick responses and professional. I realized I forgot to cast for a role and I knew his voice would really fit the character. I reached out to him and he accepted and he was great. I recommend him.

  • @beyondthedark

    David was amazing to work with right from day one. He was clearly invested in both the project and the character and this showed in his performance. I was blown away by what he sent me and I couldn't be happier with the result. Can't wait to work with him again!

  • @hearkenedofficial

    David was better then I could have imagined. His voice is a silky golden mixture of Keith David and the wind howling and he worked with me quick and easy. Fantastic voice, talent, and great to work with.

  • @modernmagic

    David Cook is incredible. It's not just his voice—although WOW, his voice and performance are just top notch. You can feel the heart behind these lines.

    My project is very dear to me, and naturally I was nervous about hiring actors. But he put his all into everything and provided such incredible work on an unbelievably fast timeline too—even days before my extra tight deadline!

    100% highly recommended. Professional, fast, talented, and full of heart. YES!

  • @hearkenedofficial

    David was an incredible talent and wonderful help on my project. I was very glad to have had the opportunity to have worked with him. Would highly recommend to anyone in need of a powerful, intimidating voice. 

  • @awesome604

    Working with DavidCook was such a great time for my ears.  Great voice actor with an incredible voice that pleases my ear every time I listen.  He performed his role expertly and brought the character come to life with his own personality. He was also very good at receiving directions and wanted to get lines right.  Which I love as a director.  Not to mention he also has very crisp professional audio that made my editing life so much easier.  Really the moment I heard his voice and how perfectly it fit the role I wanted I knew it'd be great.  Now that the project is over I can confirm 100% that I was correct.  Such an absolute joy to work with.  The cherry on top, he sends lines on time as well.  Anyone who needs a great voice and a great actor, hire DavidCookBlackLion!!

  • @madmaxminute

    I cast David as Lazlo, the Pirate Lord, in my Waterworld screenplay dramatized readthrough. His voice is amazing. David delivered his audio quickly in a very organized manner and provided alternative reads when requested. He was very intuitive with the role and was able to deliver the exact performance I needed with very little input.
