At age nineteen, Joel left his hometown in Minnesota for the beaches of Southern California and never looked back. His original dream to make it in the music business led to a successful career as a touring singer/songwriter, jingle creator, and composer.
As fate would have it, one day while he was helping a producer friend direct and engineer some radio spots, the voice talent no-showed for a time critical session. The director asked Joel to stand in as the placeholder voice for a local Toyota dealer. That spot went to air along with several others.
Now fifteen years into his VO career, Joel Weldon has been the signature voice of high profile national clients such as Toyota, Rosetta Stone (for 12 years running), Blue Cross Blue Shield, Polaris, Robert Mondavi Winery, Disaronno, Servicemaster and others. He currently narrates for NASCAR, NHL Network and Golf Channel, as well as many clients across the globe, especially India and the Middle East (and he doesn’t even like curry). He was also cast as Jake Hiack, sports agent, in the EA Sports Madden video game series.
As a former Kalmenson student and firm believer in the Kalmenson Method, he’s passionate about helping others succeed by teaching them how to stand in their own truth.
When Joel’s not living in his padded room, you might find him in search of the finest cuisine in SoCal, playing on a beach with his family, or nurturing his love for music by performing at various events and churches around the country.
