While brainstorming about what should be the name of the new ‘web shop of voices’, Dave Leusink came up with the jolly name of Voice Cowboys. The audio-entrepreneur explains it’s just a name that grabs your attention and spreads a positive vibe. Once upon a time in the west of the Netherlands on 27 September of 2016, Voice Cowboys was launched and now aims to become THE new platform where new voices can be heard and used for all kinds of means.
Giving new talent a chance
While working in radio, Dave noticed that the voices heard in commercials were often from the same persons. New talent often experienced problems getting their foot in the door in this niche sector. ‘To find your way into this world as a young voice, can be quit hard’, Dave explained. Also, the way in which the voice market worked was not very efficient. Other voice companies apparently take a while before delivering a product, and the user interface on some of their websites requires a lot of scroll work to in order to find what you are looking for. Therefore it makes sense that producers tend to stick with the people they worked with before. But that could all change with the new website of Voice Cowboys.
