Episode 61: Buzz the voice

Buzz Kemper is one of those people you meet and instantly feel like you could be friends forever. His deeply kind nature plus his smooth as good Bourbon voice have led him down many paths in his career in the world of sound. For more detail on his career, you’ll find his professional bio below. You’ll know immediately when you start to listen just why he’s in the voice field. And as you hear his passion for sound and climbing, you’ll know why I asked him to join me for a conversation.

The pro bio:

Buzz began his career at Minnesota Public Radio, working with the Minnesota Orchestra, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and engineering Leigh Kamman’s late night show “The Jazz Image”. He served as technical director for Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion” for which he won a national award for excellence. More recently, he has won praise from artists such as Mary Chapin Carpenter, Yo Yo Ma, the Art Ensemble of Chicago, and symphony orchestras including the Chicago, Milwaukee and Madison symphonies. As voice talent and narrator, Buzz’s voice is heard on websites, TV and radio ads, film narration and live performances, conventions and awards shows. An amateur rock climber, Buzz has climbed Devils Tower, Half Dome and High Exposure while managing to avoid any uncontrolled plummeting.
