About the Narrators

J. S. Gilbert has spent the better part of his life working in advertising and marketing. He has written radio and tv spots and voice-overs as a sound alike and in his own voice for Clorox, Phillips 66, McDonald’s, Coca Cola, Pepsi, Chevy Trucks of Texas and Kentucky, Dodge, PBS and tons of other things big and small.

Nicolas Bearde is a jazz singer of remarkable depth, range and technique who has won acclaim from critics and jazz audiences worldwide for his ‘buttery baritone’ and deeply imaginative interpretations. In the 1980s he became part of Jukebox, a radio play starring Danny Glover. At Glover’s recommendation, Bearde began studying with renowned acting teacher Jean Shelton, and a year later he was cast in the Athol Fugard play “Master Harold”…and the Boys. His portrayal was so convincing that his South African cast mate asked what part of Africa he was from. Bearde continued acting, first in theater, then expanding into film and television.
