"Lawrence Bayne: two words that, to me, conjure up a clear image of a proud, totally professional individual, stocked to the brim with a moody defiance of all things typical - of all things safe - of all things ordinary.
Lawrence Bayne's voice is both intimate and resounding. His innate grasp of tonality, mood and intent, coupled with an intricately multilayered verbal technique is the result of many years, smack in front of a recording mic or a rapt audience. Whatever the client request, Lawrence's responses are always cogent and on point. I highly recommend Lawrence Bayne as an actor, voice talent, raconteur, host, moderator, cheerleader, gladiator and DICTATOR!"
- Gerry Mosby, Composer/Director, Vapor Music Inc. Toronto/Chicago/Vancouver
"Lawrence Bayne is several talents in one ~ a man who can give a script three completely different treatments and leave you wondering which direction to take because they're all so usable. He's a pleasure to work with."
