Paranormal Beginnings

As a child I always loved the "ghost stories" my grandfather told me.  As an adult, the paranormal craze began and I joined a local paranormal group.  I was more involved in photography than recording, but when I captured my first voice, I was hooked. I now have my own paranormal group, Arkansas Ghost Catchers and recording in haunted locations will always be special to me.  I will continue to try and understand why spirits "haunt" or "visit" locations.

The Spiritual Side of Communicating

My spiritual EVP research started with reading Sarah Estep's, Voices of Eternity, which was written over 20 years ago.

After reading Voices of Eternity, one of Sarah Estep's experiments was to use a metal oil funnel to help amplify any recordings. I connected an external microphone to my Olympus 4100 Digital Recorder, placed the funnel over the microphone and started recording.  I recorded three, five minute sessions.  I had recorded in haunted locations, but never in normal circumstances, so I had no idea what to say.  This is what I captured on the second session,  "How ya doing?"  This recording started my interest in the spiritual side of communicating.


American Association of Electronic Voice Phenomena was formed by Sarah Estep. When she died, Tom & Lisa Butler

became the Director's and renamed the AAEVP to Association of Transcommunication.  I became a member

in 2008 and have learned much from the people that share their experiences and research on soul survival.

Electronic Voice Phenomena, EVP, are intelligible voices found in recording devices that have no known explanation. 

Most recordings are difficult to hear or understand, but in "transform evp," you can recognize the voices as being

male or female, young or old.  These voices can be captured anytime, any place.


  Below are some of my favorite EVP'S captured with various methods, equipment and at different locations.

My editing process is amplifying and removing the background noise only.
