Craig “Voiceroy” Crumpton was born in 1971 and has a lifelong, consuming interest in voice acting and voice actors, particularly in animation. Originally from Memphis, TN, Craig and his wife Joy (married in 2005) and their two feline children Birch and Scooter reside just northeast of Atlanta, GA where Craig works primarily as a freelance performer, actor, singer and voice talent, as well as an acting/singing coach. (Visit ActorsAccess.com for a complete list of Craig’s performance work.)

Craig has more than 15 years experience as a performer, and has toured professionally with award-winning Gospel groups Acappella (acappella.org) and The Daybreak Quartet (daybreakquartet.com), and has been a featured singer/performer for live events throughout the Atlanta area and in 48 states since 2000.

In 2009, he was the lead voice and puppeteer for a live interactive computer-animated “Hilda The Christmas Goat” show at a Stone Mountain Christmas in Stone Mountain, GA. And in 2010, he performed both principal and supporting roles in The Golden Age of Radio Show directed by Adult Swim voice actor Scott Hilley.

Craig performs regularly at schools and libraries as a storyteller, and has recently launched a performance-based reading program to teach kids the craft of storytelling and how to create character voices. He also performs live comedy and music shows for schools, churches, and corporate events, and is currently developing a series of musical comedy projects.

Craig has also studied with some of the voice-over industry’s top instructors: Bob Bergen, Bill Holmes, Mary Lynn Wissner, James Alburger, Susan Berkley, Tony Gonzales, and Scott Hilley, as well as coaching/mentoring from such professionals as Pat Fraley, Corey Burton, Jim Cummings and Kevin Conroy.

For a sample of Craig’s voice talents and live performance work, here’s a video from 2004 with Craig’s comedic interpretation of the classic poem Casey At The Bat, in which he performs more than 30 character voices and impressions:

Craig is very active in the online fan community as the founder of The Voice Actor Appreciation Society on Yahoo Groups and Facebook, and serves as a staff member for ToonZone.net and an Arts editor for The Open Directory Project (ODP — dmoz.org) which is home to The V.A.U.L.T: The Voice Actors Ultimate Links Treasury, a web project Craig began developing in 1999 through ODP as a resource for voice actor enthusiasts and professionals. (The V.A.U.L.T. is currently under a massive reorganization project.)
