Johnny Reed - The Voice Of King Kong

Bookmark and Share

Here's something you probably never knew. California rock artist Johnny Reed, whose latest release "ACT 2: The Johnny Reed Show" that has be climbing up the radio charts and receiving critical acclaim in the press, was also a part of Oscar winning director Peter Jackson's 2005 film “King Kong”. Unlike fellow musician Jack Black, who had an on screen roll in the production, Johnny Reed, through his Music Room Productions studios created and produced the sound designs for the voice of none other than King Kong himself that Universal Pictures used for their line of King Kong toys and ringtones.

Not only did Johnny Reed come up with the Skull Island ape's voice but also those of the various T-Rexes, raptors, brontosaurs, and swamp beasts that appeared in the movie. So those screeches, roars, growls and screams emanating from those toys and ringtones is actually the voice of the ACT 2: The Johnny Reed Show's soft spoken singer. How cool is that?

The opening of the Universal Studios King Kong Attraction of course renewed interest and re-release of King Kong ringtones, which wisely enough, Reed maintains the exclusive copyright to. The sounds of the toys and ringtones were created by utilizing clever multi-tracking in the studio along with a few other well guarded sound engineer and gaffer tricks.

Rock musicians getting into some monkey business every now and then is not completely unheard of in the entertainment world, but in Johnny's case, he takes it to a whole new level. To see his latest effort in the realm of sight and sound check out the video for his song “The Message” from the "ACT 2: The Johnny Reed Show” album. You can listen to an exclusive interview with Johnny Reed this Friday morning (8:30 AM EST on February 6) on Community Radio WERU-FM (a live stream of the interview will be available at weru.org) to learn more about the man behind the microphone.
