“Steve Bates is gifted with a golden voice. His professionalism and confidence came through immediately from the moment he walked into the studio to do some narrative work on my first feature film. Steve was attentive and aware of the task at hand, take after take. He was also quick at understanding the nature and purpose of the material. Steve was a pleasure to work with and I would most definitely hire him again in the future.” ~ Nicholas Vitis, Filmmaker

“Steve was extremely fast to respond and very easy to work with!” ~ BendPak (Gand Prix Car Lifts)
